Utilizing MapleSim to Improve Assisted Living Devices

We took biomechanical data from actual human trials and applied them to a robotic model that mimics human movements when transitioning between sitting and standing positions.

Robotics 101 at Loyola University

I think it is realistic for a robot of some sort to be in every classroom. But, the education system will need to lead the way towards that future.

Japan Regional Service Robot Expo - Expediting Opportunities in the Domestic Market

Coupled with the Government`s new Robot initiative and plenty of reasons such as short fall of labor and so on, it is becoming inevitably to adapt to new and advanced robotic process for sustaining the production strength in regional factories thus paving a new and huge potential domestic market opportunity for Robotic equipment's and services.

Mobile Cobots are Coming

A mobile cobot (mobile collaborative robot) is an intelligent, transportable robot that will assist humans in a shared workspace.

Our Concept of an Open-Source Online Platform for Makers and Educators to Share Their Projects in the Robotics Makers Community
