Robots in Architecture

There are various factors that make industrial robots such suitable tools for architects, and designers. Especially since architectural projects often require the fabrication of large, complex, three dimensional elements.

Precise Brushless Torque Control With Only 1 Shunt Resistor

The circuitry to sense precisely the current of three windings of a motor adds a significant space and cost to an electronic board. For that reason, new control algorithms are being developed to work with only one shunt.

Device Design - The Art of Compromise

It is important to know the requirements of your target customer base. For a general purpose product this can be quite difficult. Some users will only be interested in monitoring inputs, be they digital or analogue. Others may be interested only in controlling outputs. Others again may have requirements for both input monitoring and output control.

Eldercare Robots

Games, sensors and robots are among the tools beginning to come to market to help aging people live in their homes as long as possible.

Electroadhesion

Grabit's electroadhesion grippers are an enabling technology. We enable mobile robots to have energy efficient manipulation where conventions like vacuum are not feasible.

Unmanned Systems

Smart phones and new apps will dramatically improve the way unmanned systems distribute and deliver situational awareness to our troops while at the same time significantly reducing the command and control costs of unmanned systems.

Automation Fair 2012

Today, the Automation Fair event is regarded by manufacturers, media and analysts as the premier automation industry event. It is uniquely designed to help customers learn about the latest automated manufacturing technologies and trends, and learn how to use their automation investments to achieve their business goals.

Easily And Quickly Implementing Automatic Bin Picking

The positions of unsorted randomly distributed objects in different depths of large containers can be determined three-dimensionally with moving laser lines.

Connecting the Robotics Industry

There are now more connected devices in this world than dollars in the deficit. And the definition of success in business has changed from closed shops to standard modular construction and software that allows all sorts of players to add to the core products that are built.

13 Truths about "Smart Cameras"

Clearly there are a range of issues with "smart cameras." However, one may still be right for you - either today or even into the future. Yet, at this point you should be keenly aware of their various shortcomings - clear of advertising bias - to make an educated decision.

Aspect Automation and Universal Robots

No software expertise needed. The robot comes with a touch screen teach pendant as the main method of programming. In teach mode, the robot can be manually moved about its workspace to be taught positions for the program.

Distribution Centers: An Emerging Robotics Frontier

This article originated as a profile of one company as they began to robotically augment distribution centers. But, as I gathered information, the story has morphed into a review of why Kiva Systems' innovative methods - the goods-to-man methodology - is far superior to other older styles of fulfillment.

Introductory To The Element Robotics Development Platform

Fast robotics development using the Element Robotics Development Platform and the .NET framework.

Interview with David Sands of ST Robotics

Users who have never programmed anything at all before can set up our robot, type their first command and immediately see a result without requiring an integrator or consultant to install and program the robot. Additionally ST Robotics follows up with unlimited technical support.

Magneto-Inductive Communication: Interview with Steve Parsons, Ultra Electronics

To validate and demonstrate our Through-the-Earth capability, we developed a full-duplex MI Modem (MIM-1000) and installed it on a Pioneer 3-AT R&D robot. Initial field trials were carried out at an abandoned coal mine in Nova Scotia, Canada, where we successfully demonstrated the robot - we call her "Maggie" - being driven and maneuvered remotely by an operator located on the mine's surface with Maggie located in an underground mine shaft separated by over 100 feet of geological overburden.
