Autonomous Vehicles: The Impacts Are Huge, But How Quickly Will They Be Adopted?

I believe we'll see at least 10 percent of all miles driven in Level 4 vehicles (fully autonomous in most situations) by 2030, with the initial deployment in large metro areas.

Traffic Control Software Redefines Value Proposition of Mobile Robots

The flexibility and easy integration of AGVs with a Fleet Control System, coupled with a minimally invasive installation, mobile robot systems can provide a rapid return on investment and become a substantial contributor to reduced operating expenses.

How To Quickly Build Your Own Reliable, Inexpensive, And Precise Autonomous System

Talking PACK EXPO with Dorner

Booth #N4936 - Dorner will be showcasing 6 different demos with 13 unique conveyor platforms. Two of the demos showcase our new redesigned AquaGard 7350 Series which is scheduled to launch this October.

Talking PACK EXPO with QC Conveyors

Booth #S4314 - Introducing our AS40 conveyors with backlights. These backlights are specially designed to fit within the frame of our conveyors and, when coupled with a translucent belt, provide extra contrast for vision systems to aid in inspection applications

When Cars Think for Us: Autonomous Vehicles and the Role of Energy Storage

In this article, I discuss the primary reasons why autonomous vehicles are emerging, what factors go into developing self-driving cars, and how energy storage is a vital part of autonomous vehicle design.

The Next NBA Star Could Be a Robot

Human employees at Toyota decided to build a basketball-shooting robot inspired by a manga character. The artificial intelligence is named CUE, an articulated humanoid robot that can balance the ball, squat and throw with perfect accuracy.

Case Study: Increasing Solar Inspection Efficiency with Drones

Comparing drone inspection time to relevant manual inspections across the 4 sites, we saw an increase in inspection efficiency of 97%. On a per MWdc basis, cost savings due to efficiency gains ranged from $1074 to $1717 per MW, for an average of $1254/MW cost savings.

IDC Develops World's First Web-Browsing Robot

IDC was briefed to develop a humanoid robot that was capable of typing with fingers like a human to mimic the typing of a user, at a typing speed of 3-4 keys/second.

Furniture Assembly - with Ensenso N35

As part of a research project, scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a robot that can independently assemble the individual components of an IKEA chair without interruption in less than ten minutes.

Batteries, the Heart of Your Drone

Does your battery have the ability to report battery statistics to you while it is airborne? Are you sure that battery will work for your important demo?

Transparency vs. Privacy

In autonomous vehicles, should the information in the vehicle's storage be transparent (to all vehicles nearby) or should it all be kept private unless the vehicle's owner wants to share that information publicly?

Soft Multi-functional Robots Get Really Small

A new approach for fabricating soft materials at the millimeter scale paves the way to a new generation of flexible microrobots for medical and environmental tasks.

Yanu - The Robot Bartender

The robot has three docks to serve customers and can hold 50 one liter bottles of alcohol or other cocktail components. Inside the machine is hidden a soft drink machine that delivers up to 8 different cooled soft drinks.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with  Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
