Universal Robots to Ring the NASDAQ Closing Bell for Launch of ROBO-STOX Global Robotics and Automation Index ETF

The UR5 robot arm from Universal Robots will ring the NASDAQ Closing Bell on Tuesday, November 12 to mark the launch of the ROBO-STOX™ Global Robotics and Automation Index ETF (Ticker Symbol: ROBO). The robotic bell ringing marks the first time a non-human performs this prestigious task.

NASA Awards UTSA $300,000 to Build Fourth Prototype of 'Lab-on-a-Robot'

University of Texas at San Antonio Chemistry Professor Carlos Garcia, UTSA Physics Professor Arturo Ayon and HJ Science & Technology Inc. of Santa Clara, Calif. have been awarded more than $300,000 in NASA funding to build the fourth prototype of a "lab-on-a-robot" (LOAR). The Rover-like prototype will be designed to conduct on-site planetary compositional analysis.

Arcturus UAV and WGS Systems Integrate Europa-S SIGINT System on T-20 UAS

The unique aspects of the system are wide signal intercept frequency range, small operational footprint on the ground (1 or 2 full size pick-up trucks,) quiet operation (the T-20 utilizes a modified 4-stroke engine,) and the ability to interface with other payloads on the T-20, such as EO/IR and SAR.

Animal Mechanics to Control Mutually Opposing Forces Inspire Improved Control Systems for Small Robots

A quirk of nature has long baffled biologists: Why do animals push in directions that don't point toward their goal, such as the side-to-side sashaying of a running lizard or cockroach? An engineer building a robot would likely avoid these movements because they seem wasteful. So why do animals behave this way?

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
