Support robots are already a factor in Japan, where a quarter of the population is already greying. Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry expects the robotic service industry to grow to nearly $4 billion annually by 2035-25 times its current level.
Meet the new colleague for the crew of the International Space Station (ISS): an autonomous camera drone. The small sphere films the astronauts at work and this drone could potentially save about ten percent of their valuable working time.
By having robots perform the job of human hands, the process of getting a new drug to market is significantly improved. Having a robot do the work can ensure accuracy and repeatability across multiple trials
The outcome for Rethink Robotics demonstrates that even when companies are in a popular sector, they still face challenges that could make it hard to thrive. As such, the company's closing should not be viewed as a sign of a struggling robotics industry.
LiDAR offers a number of advantages over other perception solutions, enabling smart machines to "see" far distances and generate a 3D representation of their surrounding environment to detect obstacles and make intelligent navigation decisions.
Robotic devices for clinical rehabilitation of patients with neurological impairments come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and employ different kinds of actuators.
Stanford researchers have developed an electronic glove that bestows robotic hands with some of the manual dexterity humans enjoy.
The Nuclear and Applied Robotics Group, based in the University of Texas at Austin, has a mission to "develop and deploy advanced robotics in hazardous environments to minimize risk for the human operator."
Funded by a five-year, $3.5 million NIH grant, the academic-industry partnership aims to develop an MRI-compatible robotic technology to provide minimally invasive brain tumor therapy that is ready for clinical trials.
Universal Robots Offers Rapid Response Delivery, Enabling Manufacturers to Meet Tax Deduction Deadline
With an industry leading manufacturing process, Universal Robots can meet delivery deadlines for the Section 179 tax deduction incentive that can dramatically reduce the cost of collaborative robots to address repetitive and difficult-to-fill manufacturing jobs
We identified more than 30 vendors that are currently marketing over 80 cobot models, and we expect this number to grow. More than 80 percent of collaborative robot suppliers generated less than $10m in revenues last year.
Well-designed smart technology tools can help government agencies, the environment and residents. Smart cities can upgrade the efficiency of city services by eliminating redundancies and finding ways to save money, as well as provide higher-quality services at a lower cost.
By working in tandem with AI and robotics in healthcare, humans can deliver a higher quality of care for patients in very measurable ways.
Automated transportation is not just limited to providing practical solutions for logistical problems, but it also ensures that its solutions enable enterprises to pinpoint and address their logistical inefficiencies in real-time.
The iTENDO is the world's first intelligent toolholder with real-time process control. In an interview, developers Friedrich Bleicher and Johannes Ketterer explain how the embedded systems solution makes production smart and economical.

REIKU's Cable Saver™ Solution eliminates downtime, loss of revenue, expensive cable and hose replacement costs, maintenance labour costs. It's available in three sizes 36, 52 and 70 mm. All of the robots cables and hoses are protected when routed through the Cable Saver™ corrugated tubing. The Cable Saver™ uses a spring retraction system housed inside the Energy Tube™ to keep this service loop out of harms way in safe location at the rear of the Robot when not required. The Cable Saver™ is a COMPLETE solution for any make or model of robot. It installs quickly-on either side of the robot and has been tested to resist over 15 million repetitive cycles.
