ROS 101: Intro To The Robot Operating System

Clearpath Robotics has posted part one and two of their ongoing introductory to the ROS operating system:

Part One: Intro

Since we practically live in the Robot Operating System (ROS), we thought it was time to share some tips on how to get started with ROS. We’ll answer questions like where do I begin? How do I get started? What terminology should I brush up on? Keep an eye out for this ongoing ROS 101 blog series that will provide you with a top to bottom view of ROS that will focus on introducing basic concepts simply, cleanly and at a reasonable pace... cont'd

Part Two: Setup And Example

In the previous ROS 101 post, we provided a quick introduction to ROS to answer questions like What is ROS? and How do I get started? Now that you understand the basics, here’s how they can apply to a practical example. Follow along to see how we actually ‘do’ all of these things…. cont'd

Why I Automate

Our goal is to share stories about companies that are using automation to succeed and compete effectively in their marketplace.

A BeagleBone Black Resource

The BeagleBone Black is the latest low cost single-board computer in the BeagleBoard family.

Case Study: Customizing Orthopedics With Robotics

The mastery we developed of ROBOTMASTER's capabilities, combined with our expertise in orthoses and prostheses, permitted us to develop proprietary, patented milling strategies, conceived specifically for, and ideally suited to, our highly specialised business.

Robotic Storage Facility Protects Exotic Collectibles with HOBO Data Nodes

For security and convenience, the facility keeps human entry to a minimum. The robotic crane and rail system delivers possessions out of the facility.

Case Study: Ancor And The Monroney Window Sticker

Ancor knew there had to be a better and more efficient way to manage the label packaging process - which had a 10-hour or less nightly production timeframe and a client-mandated 100% verification process.

High-Speed Synchronization with maxon's EPOS3 70/10 EtherCAT

Designed for brushed and brushless DC motors, compact in size The digital positioning controller EPOS3 70/10 EtherCAT meets the highest demands in real-time positioning of synchronized multi-axis systems.

The RE 30 EB 15 W maxon DC motor for fine rotary motions.

maxon windings and precious metal brushes generate higher torque.

maxon Introduces the new 4 mm micro motor and gearhead

maxon motor was challenged to deliver maximum power in the smallest possible space and the result is the EC 4 brushless motor.

maxon's Small spindle drives are now available in wearproof ceramic.

Two new complete systems composed of spindle, axial bearing, and gearhead. With the GP8S and GP16S spindle drives, maxon motor is expanding the program and simultaneously launching the ceramic spindle. The ceramic spindle is an extraordinary product, with several advantages.

maxon's ESCON Module 50/4 EC-S

Servo Motor Controller for sensorless Operation of Brushless Motors

Highly Dynamic Brushless DC motors

Compact yet powerful. EC-i motors are ideally suited for applications that require maximum drive in a minimum space. Typical areas of application are robotics, industrial automation and security technology.

U.S. Army And Lockheed Martin Complete Advanced Autonomous Convoy Demonstration

The test involved driverless tactical vehicles navigating hazards and obstacles such as road intersections, oncoming traffic, stalled and passing vehicles, pedestrians and traffic circles in both urban and rural test areas.

Festo Names Three New Distributors for Colorado, Utah, Montana, and Parts of Idaho and Oregon

Markets served by these distributors include packaging, robotics/palletizing, oil and gas, mining, solar, material handling, food processing, dairy and farm, semi-conductor, timber, land transportation, automotive, and printing/converting.
