The DARPA Robotics Challenge Rundown

Teams are competing to develop and put to the test hardware and software designed to enable robots to assist humans in emergency response when a disaster strikes.

Solar Powered Unmanned Vehicles

When you have the combination of high energy density and thin and flexible form factor, you can apply this solar material to anything with a battery that moves, can be carried, or worn.

Case Study: Robotic Press Brake - Automated Metal Bending

The goal is to completely automate the brake press to bend a variety of different parts.

Lucky guesses or accurate predictions?

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.

Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces and Robotics: John Phillips, Pleora Technologies

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.

Can robots find the hidden treasures of history?

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.

Automated Guided Vehicles: The Hot Trend in Distribution Centers

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.

UAV Positioning and Communications

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.

AUVSI 2013 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 2013 Unmanned Systems.

The Cyton Robotic Solution

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.

Case Study: Harvest Automation HV-100 Robots Are The Key That Unlock Production Efficiencies

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.

Next Great Thing: Chasing Innovative Products is a Long, Hard Trek

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…

Robots In Architecture

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.

Portable Danish Robot Expands Production With California Manufacturer

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 Benefit Plastic Molders

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.
