Although farming has become mechanized, the evolution of agricultural techniques to include unmanned robots provides a unique opportunity.
The recent developments in algorithms and sensor technologies make it possible to efficiently implement vision guided robotics tasks for manufacturers.
The most immediate benefit of cleaning robots is what is called "Daytime cleaning": the fact that there is no need to keep the facility lights on at night for cleaning purposes.
Understanding an application's requirements is critical in choosing the best device for successful data acquisition.
Lean manufacturing is thinking "out of the box". Removing time, effort, and cost from the manufacturing processes is the solution to Lean manufacturing and competitiveness.
Capturing and processing camera and sensor data and recognizing various shapes to determine a set of robotic actions is conceptually easy. Yet Amazon challenged the industry to do a selecting and picking task robotically and 28 teams from around the world rose to the competition.
Here are some crowd funding projects of interest.
RPA can bring about a "virtual integration" of multiple systems while executing repetitive work more accurately and reliably than humans can.
Essentially, USAR robots act as the eyes and ears in environments that that are too difficult or too dangerous for humans to go.
A dashboard is a single rqt window with one or more plugins displayed in movable, re-sizable frames.
Taking first place and the $2 million in prize money that goes with it is Team Kaist of Daejeon, Republic of Korea, and its robot DRC-Hubo
Drones will eventually be "as ubiquitous as pigeons", London-based futurist Liam Young recently predicted. They will be used for a lot of different tasks. One overlooked drone application even has the potential to become a trillion dollar business. And to save the world.
Overall, the reports that I surveyed were upbeat, predicting exponential growth for all unmanned vehicles.
In a leap for robotic development, the MIT researchers who built a robotic cheetah have now trained it to see and jump over hurdles as it runs - making this the first four-legged robot to run and jump over obstacles autonomously...
