James Anderton for Engineering.com: Robotics are an ideal technology for fine assembly tasks, such as those in the electronics industry.
The biomechanically inspired machine that is discussed in this paper refers to the antagonistic muscles pairs, which belongs to the Skeletal Muscles and are normally arranged in opposition so that as one group of muscles contract another group relaxes or lengthens.
Ross Wilkers for Washington Technology: Boeing has emerged as the winner of a DARPAcompetition to design and test an unmanned reusable spaceplane.
Collaborative robots need safe, sensitive and flexible end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT) and there were many vendors - and some breakthrough technologies - demonstrated at the two shows.
Advanced robotics will make jobs such as harvesting easier for farmers. In time, when robots finally learn how to harvest each individual crop, farms will be able to produce more yields for human consumption.
David Gianatasio for AdWeek: Unless you've been lost at sea, you've probably heard about the giant robotic squid that Old Spice deployed last weekend for a wacky, high-profile internet game on Twitch.
Matt Day for Seattle Times: Echodyne's radar arrays are designed to bring some of the power and precision of massive, heavy, military-grade radars to a tablet-sized device.
April Glaser for Recode: The court ruled that the FAA's drone registration rules, which have been in place since 2015, were in violation of a law passed by Congress in 2012.
Quora via Forbes: I think we'll see this across industries where basic tasks that can be easily automated eventually will be, and it will pave the way for a workforce that is more productive and efficient.
Trend Micro recently released the first in-depth, hands-on research that demonstrates the extent to which industrial robots can be compromised.
Ellen Huet for Bloomberg: A Silicon Valley startup is the guardian of the building blocks of robot life.
Melia Robinson for Business Insider: On a recent night outside the offices of Knightscope, a robotics startup in the heart of Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man allegedly toppled a five-foot tall, 300-pound robot to the ground.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries will work on the development of an unmanned mowing robot in collaboration with Industrial Technology Research Institute, Yokohama City, Fukuoka Prefecture and others.
Red Herring: ELLIQ comprises a tablet screen and a small, bobble-headed assistant, which looks like two bell jars glommed together, that interacts with elderly users, the device and humans on the other end of communication.
Adam Conner-Simons, CSAIL via MIT News: CSAIL approach allows robots to learn a wider range of tasks using some basic knowledge and a single demo.

Dynatect's Gortite VF (Vertical Fabric) Automated Machine Safety Door is intended for automation and safe machine access to minimize cycle time and maximize production time. The automated roll-up door separates machines with hazardous operations from other processes, material handling equipment, and people. The Gortite VF Door contains typical machine/process generated hazards including light debris, fluid splatter/mist, and weld smoke/sparks/flash.
