AUVSI 2014 Special News Report

This is our special news page where you can read about and post news and announcements about products and services exhibited at AUVSI 2014 Unmanned Systems.

Drones in the Water

Essentially, we're creating drones for water that produce mapping capabilities; it's somewhat similar to air drones (i.e.: fixed wing UAVs) that map from the sky, but we're mapping from the water.

International Paper Saves Labor Costs, Improves Reliability, Quality and Work Flow

Downtime near zero vs. extended downtime of former gantry system.

Beta Testing Dynamixel XL-320 Servos

Dynamixel XL-320 is a digital servo (in this case, featuring a 8-bit STM8 controller).

What to Look for When Specifying a Robot Cable

In order for a cable to withstand repeated torsional movement, it's necessary for the cable to have a special design. It's important that the conductors, shield construction and jacket materials of the cable compensate for major changes in bending load and diameter.

Robotic Welding Series: Robotic Flexibility Can Open Up Opportunities For Job Shops

This is the final installment of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.

Why I Automate: Vickers Engineering

Robotics allows us to draw a different level of employee. Employees that aren't just looking for a paycheck, but looking for a career.

The Unmanned Platform Common Control System (CCS)

The CCS prototype was developed for the U.S. government and its goal is to simultaneously control multiple unmanned assets in various environments (water, air and ground).

The Less is More Approach to Robotic Cable Management

There are different options available for guiding and protecting cables on six-axis robots. Three well- known solutions include flexible tubing, enclosed dress packs and robotic cable carrier systems.

Brain Control Becomes A Reality

The fore-runner of brain communication to a robot is Neuroprosthetics, which is an area of neuroscience concerned with neural prostheses. That is, using artificial devices to replace the function of impaired nervous systems and brain related problems.

Trimble Adds Unmanned Aircraft System to its Agriculture Portfolio

The system can locate cattle and their available forage over large areas, measure crop height, and generate topographic maps and models for land leveling and drainage applications.

Robotic Welding Series: Pre-engineered Cells Cut Through Economics of Automation

This is the third of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.

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.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
