G2, a Wave Glider performing scientific missions, was moving out of Hurricane Isaac's projected path when it changed and headed directly for the rugged robot.
NEA, Firelake Capital, Siemens Venture Capital, and DFJ JAIC Invest $6.5 Million into Company that delivers dual-axis tracking for single-axis pricing.
This custom servo drive has been specially designed for AC brushless motor thrusters and can operate at high hydrostatic pressures without the need of expensive pressure relief vessels.
From todays press release: QBotix today unveiled the QBotix Tracking System™ (QTS), a comprehensive dual-axis tracking system that employs rugged, intelligent and mobile robots to dynamically operate solar power plants and maximize energy output. The solar panels are installed on QBotix designed mounting systems that don't have any individual motors and are optimized for cost, strength, durability and installation simplicity. The robots travel on a track and adjust each mounting system to optimally face the sun in succession. Each robot replaces hundreds of individual motors and controllers found on conventional tracking systems. The embedded intelligence and data communication capabilities of each autonomous robot optimize power plant performance and enables detailed operational knowledge at an unprecedented level. QTS is now available for commercial deployments.

Advanced Motion Controls announces the release of EtherCAT® Servo Drives and New 'DxM' (Demultiplexed Motion) Technology
As part of our highly successful Z-Drives platform of plug-in servo drives, ADVANCED Motion Controls is proud to formally release powerful DZE & DZS series of servo drives for EtherCAT enabled control networks but with package size that can easily fit in the palm of your hand. These products not only provide precise motion but also at reduced cost when applied in a multiple networked axes system.
Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision, and lighting, recently held a press conference in Beijing, where the company shared its market-focused approach to growing its business in the region with 18 key members of the Chinese media.
A 1998 presentation by computer scientist Guy Steele, co-designer of the Scheme programming language. If you are at all interested in computer language design and theory you owe it to yourself to watch at least the first 10 minutes of the video. It might be the "Sixth Sense" of computer language design presentations.
A California scientist's experiments have proven that such a feat may indeed be possible.

Great advances often start with small steps - in manufacturing cells measuring only 600 × 600 mm. Here, the KR 3 AGILUS is in its element. Particularly in the case of small parts and products which must be produced in a minimum of space. KUKA expertise, concentrated into the smallest of spaces, is setting new standards for the 3-kg class. The lightweight robot masters various tasks with agility, dynamism and maximum precision, leading to high flexibility in production - even when it comes to extremely narrow spaces.
