Some big budget film/TV production houses are using these more expensive systems and still come in under budget, compared to using a big helicopter for just a few hours a day or multiple camera cranes/dollies.
For 2015, a Grand Robot Exhibition in Japan is taking place during December 2nd to 5th as a joint venture of Japan Robot Association and the Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun.
The inevitable Internet of Things is already taking shape, absorbing the world of consumer devices and hovering on the horizon of industrial manufacturing.
Pioneering an inherently safe solution for automating small parts assembly with human coworkers by redefining human-robot collaboration through a unique integration of components, speed, agility and motion control
OCTOPUZ was created to meet the rising needs in the robotics industry, and uses a revolutionary method of combining offline programming of robots with manufacturing process simulation.
Recent debates have brought a range of UAV driven privacy concerns to light, with key fears including trespassing, nuisance and data protection.
The gripper spider for fiber composite components is a great example how significant this contribution to the intelligent factory can be in practice.
Almost all robots today use lasers for remote sensing. This means that the robot is able to tell, from a distance, some characteristics of an object.
