With 'Material Robotics,' Intelligent Products Won't Even Look Like Robots

Robots as inconspicuous as they are ubiquitous represent the vision of researchers in the new and burgeoning field of material robotics.

Wandelbots wants to reinvent the way we program robots

Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Its first product is a sensor-laden suit that a person can wear to demonstrate actions so that a robot can then replicate what they do.

Using Modular and Mobile Robotic Solutions in The Biotech Industry

Our approach is to drive modularity and mobility into the core system architecture so that the automation is less static and monolithic, and can adapt to the changing nature of scientific research.

Soft robot muscles with origami skeletons can lift 1,000 times their own weight

James Vincent for The Verge: Each muscle consists of a sealed bag filled with air or fluid, containing a folding origami structure that functions as the skeleton.

Benefits of Collaborative Robots/Cobots!

Cobots, or Collaborative robots, take away some of the environmental, and spatial, dangers traditional robots may cause, allowing them to work alongside humans. Their interaction with humans is more natural, they share the same workspace, and Cobots are very easily reprogrammed.

Case Study: ATI Tool Changers Transform Schmalz's Design-Test Center

Without tool changers, we have to manually detach the tool from the robot with bolts and thumbscrews, wheel the tool away on a cart, and attach a new tool the same way. This is tedious and not possible for one person to do by themselves.

How Motion Control Puts the Robo in Robotics

Efficient motion control technology replaces the heavy, power-hungry traditional mechanical and hydraulic components with accurate, efficient electro-mechanical control systems. Within the traction, steering and braking systems of these energy-efficient cars are brushless torque motors.

The Hydroponic, Robotic Future of Farming in Greenhouses

Matt Simon for Wired: The company is developing machine learning algorithms that will automatically detect diseased plants and kick them out of the system before the sickness spreads. Underdeveloped plants would also get the boot.

Where Should the Robot Controller Go?

You can save yourself surprises by planning robot controller mounting and wireway routing ahead with your selected robot integrator's project team.

BitFlow Identifies Five Machine Vision Trends for 2018

BitFlow, Inc., a manufacturer of frame grabbers for machine vision cameras, annually gives its top five industry trends for the upcoming year.

Humanoid robot market to double by 2023, industrial robotics to hit $72B

Alison DeNisco Rayome for TechRepublic: By 2023, we will see an increasing use of humanoid robots for education, as well as in the retail industry, to better personalize customer support.

Genesis Systems Group Innovates NDI Systems with ATI End-Effectors

The NSpect family of Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI) Systems from Genesis Systems Group is making quite an impression. By combining ATI End Effectors, KUKA Robots, and vast engineering expertise, Genesis creates more efficient methods of NDI that encourage safety and increase quality. Genesis' customers have confidence in NSpect Products as well-the company has integrated more than 30 NSpect Systems in the last five years.

European Robotics Week 2017: 1000 local events expected to show the value of robotics to the public

The importance of robotics for Europe's regions will be the focus of a week-long celebration of robotics taking place around Europe on 17-27 November 2017

Patent Strategy Is Critical for Robotics Innovations

Patents are extremely important for robotics companies in all stages. For early-stage companies, patents are often the only way for investors to place a value on a company's technology during development. In this way, patents can make up a significantly greater portion of enterprise value for early-stage robotics companies.

Warehouse robot startup Kindred signs up the Gap to test its first commercial product

Nick Statt for The Verge: Kindred's new production model robots, now called Kindred Sort, have been operating in a pilot program at a Gap warehouse, with plans to expand the fleet of robots to help the retailer's full fulfillment network down the line.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
