Ford, U-M Accelerate Autonomous Vehicle Research with Ford Researchers In-House at New Robotics Lab on U-M Campus
-Ford becoming first corporation to co-locate in an academic building as it works side-by-side with University of Michigan researchers in a new state-of-the-art robotics center -Long-running alliance strengthened by naming U-M professors Matthew Johnson-Roberson and Ram Vasudevan as leaders of the autonomous vehicle collaboration -Later this year, Ford is moving a team of researchers and engineers to university's North Campus Research Complex, kicking off the first phase of expanded presence
Blue Ocean Robotics reports to have sold out at the end of the second investment stage on 29th August. Blue Ocean Robotics could announce, earlier in the summer, that the company had closed the first investment stage with "the World's Best Investor". This time the investor group has been expanded with a small group of prominent business people and partners close to the company.
Sharon Gaudin for ComputerWorld: In just five years, intelligent systems and robots may have taken up to 6% of U.S. jobs, according to Forrester Research in a report released this week. As artificial intelligence (A.I.) advances to better understand human behavior and make decisions on its own in complicated situations, it will enable smart software and robots to take on increasingly challenging jobs. That means robotics should be able to take over some jobs traditionally held by humans by 2021. For instance, Forrester predicts that smart systems like autonomous robots, digital assistants, A.I. software and chatbots will take over customer service rep jobs and eventually even serve as truck and taxi drivers.

Ghost Robotics™ Launches Ghost Minitaur™ Direct-Drive Legged Robot Platform For Autonomous Vehicle Applications
Patent Pending Robots Built for Instantaneous and Highly-Precise Force Feedback Applications and Movement Across Unknown, Rough and Vertical Terrains for Commercial, SAR and Military Markets
Researchers are investigating the core fundamentals of locomotion as it exists in nature and as it applies to the movement of robotic systems. Great strides have been made in giving motion to robots, but we have a long way to go to have robots duplicate biological life.

The infusion of capital will be used to expand the Sarcos team and to accelerate the production and deployment of Sarcos' Guardian line of robots that are significantly reducing the risk of injury and the cost of performing many of the world's most dangerous and difficult tasks.
...their experienced market researchers are sufficiently astute to accept that small service robot firms, such as GeckoSystems, can nonetheless develop advanced technologies and products as well, or better, as much larger, multi-billion dollar corporations such as Google Inc., etc.
The INTELLOS A-UGV, launched today at the ASIS International show in Orlando, Florida, is a cost-effective, mobile sensor platform that can capture video, audio and environmental data as it patrols assigned areas. Organizations will be able to address the needs of a changing security landscape with the capabilities offered by INTELLOS.
Krypton series brick robot has a unique six-side attachable building mechanism which makes it world's first brick robot with the most mechanical possibilities. Preteens and teens can build Krypton series into different things, such as plane, motorcycle, the Eiffel Tower, etc.
Evan Ackerman for IEEE Spectrum: At Georgia Tech, Li Wang and professors Aaron D. Ames and Magnus Egerstedt have been developing ways to allow infinitely large teams of mobile robots to move around each other without colliding, and also without getting in each other’s way. This is very important for people like me, who have 37Roombas at home, but also for anyone imagining a future where roads are packed with autonomous cars. The fundamental issue here is robot paranoia. When robots move around, they typically maintain a sensor-based “panic zone” for safety, and if anything enters that space, they panic, and stop moving. If you have only two robots moving around, they can keep clear of one another, but as the number of robots increases, the odds that two “panic zones” will intersect also increases, to the point where they overlap and you just end up with a completely paralyzing global robot freakout. Or as the Georgia Tech researchers put it (in a much fancier way), “as the number of robots and the complexity of the task increases, it becomes increasingly difficult to design one single controller that simultaneously achieves multiple objectives, e.g., forming shapes, collision avoidance, and connectivity maintenance.” Cont'd...
