The idea of many connected devices helping better control the factory floor is not new. IoT in one sense is merely a shift to internet addressable devices versus those either addressed by proprietary means or just "dumb".
Money is flowing to robotics-related startup companies. Q1 saw 19 equity deals totaling $317 million, and 3 acquisitions of undetermined amounts, but money also flowed in April.
If your robotics research depends on accurate models, you may want to consider looking at MapleSim® 2015 - a high performance physical modeling and simulation tool developed by Maplesoft™.
Robotics Fast Track foresees cost-effective development of new capabilities by engaging cutting-edge groups and individuals who traditionally have not worked with the federal government
3-D printing could really change medical research. Important questions can be answered, saving both time and money, as 3-D-printed models give surgeons new perspectives and opportunities to practice, and patients and their families a deeper understanding of complex procedures.
Smart buildings are often moving the wrong way, with more central "cloud-based" decision making, and less autonomy.
Here is a summary of what Tradeshows, Conferences & Exhibitions to look forward to in the coming months.
"True to DARPA's mission, EXACTO has demonstrated what was once thought impossible: the continuous guidance of a small-caliber bullet to target," said Jerome Dunn, DARPA program manager.
This cell is divided into 4 stations: A manual loading/unloading station and three process stations where tank openings are cut and numerous components welded on.
The 2015 Prize for Contributions in Soft Robotics rewards academic researchers for sharing their work and advancing the field. The competitions include $10,000 in prizes!
Since 2006 Festo has been developing and supporting projects and test objects whose basic technical principles are derived from a wide variety of principles found in nature.
A Competitive Alternative to Traditional Linear and Rotary Position Sensors.
8tree's portable 3D scanner enables easy, fast surface inspection in the automotive and aerospace industries. A Manta digital camera from Allied Vision contributes to rapid and accurate measurement.
This is an example of high speed milling of a soft foam statue into a sculpture using Robotmaster and a KUKA Robot. The 7-axis robot allows accurate cutting from all angles.

Robolink: Articulated joint modules for robots. igus® now offers a lightweight, maintenance- and corrosion-free range of robot joints for humanoid systems or other automated applications. The carbon-fiber plastic joints can rotate and oscillate freely via four wire ropes. No more expensive milling, cutting or DIY systems. Moving mass is reduced to a minimum. The actuators (engines, pneumatics and hydraulics) and the control module (DP, PC) are kept separate. Contact igus® for more information and free samples.
