The goal is to completely automate the brake press to bend a variety of different parts.
In 1962, Rosie, the robot, was more than just a maid to the Jetson family. Well, Toyota is working on such a robotic maid, which should be released in the next few years.
We're seeing growing demand for interfaces that don't require a traditional frame grabber inside the personal computer (PC), as well as a migration towards smaller form factor PCs with embedded processing.
In the future, an autonomous archaeological robotic excavation system could be deployed in these and other extreme landscapes. The design of the robotic system, including its instrumentation and motion controls, descends directly from the fields of medical and construction robotics.
Automatic Guided Vehicle industry sales projections for 2014 are very strong, particularly in distribution. Flexibility, versatility of systems, bolstered by evolutionary advances in controls are some of the key selling points.
While today's technology is highly advanced and offers sufficient end user applications, there is room for advancement in both the areas of research in the current technology as well as new and unique solutions in applications that have not been tried before.
This is our special news page where you can read about and post news and announcements about products and services exhibited at AUVSI 2013 Unmanned Systems.
We like to use the term train rather than program. The simplest way to train the Cyton is by using what we call assistive mode. In this mode the operator grabs onto the gripper and manually moves it where it needs to go. This information is used by the software to create a path which can be repeated or modified through an intuitive graphical interface.
The robots require minimal training to operate, while reducing production costs and improving productivity. They are flexible to deploy on open beds, hoop houses and greenhouses with any type of plant on all common ground surfaces including ground cloth, poly, and gravel.
The boss' challenge is to figure out which are the good ideas and which are great ideas. But the real innovator? It's the customer … he/she/they determine what idea is insanely great and which is…
The emergence of robotic technologies for architectural design raises questions about how methods of construction might change in the future. Effective architectural robots have a great future in structured environments.
Total setup time including all programming and tooling took eight hours. Moving the robot from one application to the next now takes about 30 minutes.
Six axis robots provide all the advantages of the simple Cartesian systems (high speed, slim forearm and simple programming) but have none of the limiting features that restrict the incorporation of additional tasks. The 6 degrees of freedom in movement provides an extremely large work envelope within a small footprint.
The Roxtec system is based on a rubber-sealing module that consists of two halves, a center core, and removable black and blue layers. This construction ensures adaptability to different sizes of cables and pipes.
The following document poses some of the questions that a robotic user should consider prior to selecting a robot and a robot programmer/installer.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
