Eugénie von Tunzelmann: Ever since reading Richard Dawkins' book 'The Blind Watchmaker' I'd wanted to try my hand at some evolutionary programming. The idea is to model natural selection inside the computer by generating procedural creatures and allowing them to vary and improve over time without user intervention. The code to build and rig the robots was written in Python, as was the code to run the rigid body simulation, using the Open Dynamics Engine to drive the sim. I wrote an importer for Side Effects' Houdini to read in my robot simulations so I could render them out as pictures.
An important milestone on the road towards Integrated Industry is the concept of integrated automation from Festo.
Festo has been a reliable partner of Dutch industry for more than 45 years. With automation technology, Festo has become the market leader.
The Danish manufacturer of industrial robot arms is expanding the network of distributors, adding Numatic Engineering in Southern California and Intek Systems in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Southern New Jersey. The expansion follows a significant market penetration as the demand and awareness of collaborative robots increases.
Exhibit and seminars to focus on strategies for omnichannel fulfillment, operational efficiency and the latest automation and software technologies
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.
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.
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.
This is the third of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.
Contract awarded. In the selection procedure of a further supplier for automobile interior finishing, we were able to assert ourselves and received the contract for a total of twelve grippers and three cutting stations. Automatic component transport and casting trimming are incorporated, and rapid.
New system aims to break existing COMC2 paradigm
Getten is based in Charlotte, N.C. and will work in the Southeast with customers to solve their automation challenges.

The PLCs will control the sedimentation process of the concentrating mill at Europe's largest gold mine.
From Studio diip : “Fish on Wheels” has been developed so fish can steer their tank into a certain direction. Our pet fish have always been limited to their water holding area known as “the fish tank”. In an attempt to liberate fish all over the world, the first self driving car for fish has been developed. This car moves by detecting the fish’s position with computer vision. Up until now driving vehicles has been limited to mankind only (excluding a handful of autonomous vehicles driven by computers), but now your pet fish can also put the pedal to the metal. A prototype version of ”Fish on Wheels” has been constructed using a standard webcam, a battery powered Beagleboard and an Arduino controlled robot vehicle. Using the contrast of the fish with the bottom of the fish tank his position is determined and used to send commands to the Arduino for moving the car into that direction.
