New smaller and more portable electronics in aerospace, defense, and other stressful environments, like those encountered in robotics and oil exploration, are resulting in changing demands and designs of electronic connector systems.
For the Robotics Challenge, to demonstrate the robot's ability to operate a vehicle, DARPA chose to use the RANGER XP 900 EPS vehicles, which were all customized for the challenge with a TORC SafeStop Emergency System.
This is our special news page where you can read about and post news and announcements about products and services exhibited at AUVSI 2014 Unmanned Systems.
The next chapter in the industrial revolution is 3D printing, delivering a huge impact on additive manufacturing. It will not only create thousands of new jobs, but it will create many new businesses.
Essentially, we're creating drones for water that produce mapping capabilities; it's somewhat similar to air drones (i.e.: fixed wing UAVs) that map from the sky, but we're mapping from the water.
Downtime near zero vs. extended downtime of former gantry system.
Dynamixel XL-320 is a digital servo (in this case, featuring a 8-bit STM8 controller).
In order for a cable to withstand repeated torsional movement, it's necessary for the cable to have a special design. It's important that the conductors, shield construction and jacket materials of the cable compensate for major changes in bending load and diameter.
This is the final installment of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.
Robotics allows us to draw a different level of employee. Employees that aren't just looking for a paycheck, but looking for a career.
In the near future the more advanced the equipment becomes we must produce more skilled labor. This is great benefit to the US in that companies themselves will be helping educate their employees and improving the workforce.
Similar to computers, nanotechnology is both an enabling technology and a technology sector in its own right. Nanotechnology is prolific in the research and development of almost every economic sector, from aerospace to medicine to energy.
The CCS prototype was developed for the U.S. government and its goal is to simultaneously control multiple unmanned assets in various environments (water, air and ground).
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.
3Shape implants planning and guided surgery software brings together implant planning, prosthetics, and drill guide design to provide a cost-efficient solution that saves chair-time and improves patient experience.

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.
