Festo's ExoHand is an exoskeleton that can be worn like a glove, combining smart features invented by the engineers with the smart and flexible solutions from nature. The fingers can be actively moved and their strength amplified; the operator's hand movements are registered and transmitted to the robotic hand in real time.
Here are several educational resources to help you learn about OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision Library)
ADAM AMRs mimic human behavior. In a textbook example of lean manufacturing, ADAM is designed to predictably and instantaneously react to the electronic request of the machines for service, delivering what the production cell wants in the exact time and quantity it wants, connecting islands of automation for optimal efficiency.
Powered exoskeletons have the potential to change battlefield technology forever. Paraplegic patients may leverage new technologies to walk again. Future exoskeletons will better integrate with humans, blurring the line between man and machine.
A 'seeing' robot can flexibly pick up, recognize and measure wafers, solar cells and even whole modules and then place the gripped objects with great precision and speed.
Double Robotics' new robot is a two wheeled adjustable height telepresence based on the iPad. A retractable kickstands will automatically deploy to conserve power when you are not moving around and the internal battery is capable of powering the robot for 8 hours of normal use. Navigation is controlled by included iPad software and the company hopes to ship the first batch in December for $1,999.
Global Defense Robotics Market to Reach US$7.5 Billion by 2018, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.
GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Defense Robotics markets. The global market for Defense Robotics is forecast to reach US$7.5 billion by the year 2018, propelled by rapid technological developments and imminent benefits on the warfront. Increased Government spending, technological maturity, and enhanced cost-benefit ratio of the unmanned systems are the major growth drivers for this vibrant sector. In the future, robots will increasingly replace humans on combat ground in all branches of the military, significantly lowering casualties and altering field strategies.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
The PQ12-R series of linear servos are the smallest affordable linear servo on the market today. Small enough to fit inside a tic tac box, it's very powerful with a maximum force of over 11lbs. It operates as a direct plug-and-play replacement for standard rotary servos, using the same standard 3 wire connector. Regardless of how you drive your servos, be it with an RC receiver, an Arduino board, or a VEX micro-controller, the PQ12-R servo will function in place of a regular servo, but with the added benefit of providing linear motion. They're available in a 20mm stroke coupled with gear ratio options of 30:1, 63:1 and 100:1 cover a large variety of applications. Our PQ12 is popular used in a variety of robotics applications, medical devices, radio control and 3D printable bionic hands. Our PQ12 is proudly designed in Canada by our in-house team of engineers and thoroughly tested before leaving our facility.
