Robotmaster at Industrie Lyon 2014!

Industrie Lyon 2014 was a very successful show for Robotmaster. The capabilities of Robotmaster were demonstrated live at the Mastercam, ABB, and KUKA booths.

Raspberry Pi Compute Module

From Raspberry Pi Foundation:

The compute module contains the guts of a Raspberry Pi (the BCM2835 processor and 512Mbyte of RAM) as well as a 4Gbyte eMMC Flash device (which is the equivalent of the SD card in the Pi). This is all integrated on to a small 67.6x30mm board which fits into a standard DDR2 SODIMM connector (the same type of connector as used for laptop memory*). The Flash memory is connected directly to the processor on the board, but the remaining processor interfaces are available to the user via the connector pins. You get the full flexibility of the BCM2835 SoC (which means that many more GPIOs and interfaces are available as compared to the Raspberry Pi), and designing the module into a custom system should be relatively straightforward as we’ve put all the tricky bits onto the module itself.

So what you are seeing here is a Raspberry Pi shrunk down to fit on a SODIMM with onboard memory, whose connectors you can customise for your own needs.

The Compute Module is primarily designed for those who are going to create their own PCB. However, we are also launching something called the Compute Module IO Board to help designers get started.

Our entry-level SKU will be $99 MSRP, with additional board configuration options to be made available. All models will include 64-bit processors, USB 3.0, and Intel HD graphics with open source accelerated drivers for Linux, to just name a few of the new features!

  • $99 MSRP: E3815 (single-core, 1.46 GHz), 1GB
  • $129 MSRP: E3825 (dual-core, 1.33 GHz), 2GB
  • HDMI (micro HDMI connector)
  • 1 – Micro SD SDIO
  • 1 – SATA2 3Gb/sec
  • 1 – USB 3.0 (host)
  • 1 – USB 2.0 (host)
  • 1 – Serial debug via FTDI cable (sold separately)
  • 10/100/1000 Ethernet

The low-speed expansion port is a 2×13 (26-pin) male 0.1″ pin header.

  • SPI, I2C, I2S Audio, 2x UARTs (TTL-level), 8x GPIO (2x supporting PWM), +5V, GND

New KUKA Robot:  KR 3 AGILUS Maximum performance in minimum space

New KUKA Robot: KR 3 AGILUS Maximum performance in minimum space

Great advances often start with small steps - in manufacturing cells measuring only 600 × 600 mm. Here, the KR 3 AGILUS is in its element. Particularly in the case of small parts and products which must be produced in a minimum of space. KUKA expertise, concentrated into the smallest of spaces, is setting new standards for the 3-kg class. The lightweight robot masters various tasks with agility, dynamism and maximum precision, leading to high flexibility in production - even when it comes to extremely narrow spaces.
