Second-generation prototype Honda Autonomous Work Vehicles (AWV) successfully performed a range of functions at large-scale solar energy construction site
Scientists have begun implementing robotic tools to aid in innovative sustainability strategies. With 2021's unprecedented surge in public interest in sustainability, 2022 will see more use and development of green robots than ever before.
Transitioning to clean wind energy could become more cost-efficient as Purdue University researchers test a new technology created by an international startup to anchor offshore wind turbines.
Exoskeletons have remarkable potential. As with their science fiction counterparts, these machines can amplify their users' strength, letting them lift heavier objects with less effort.
The demand for AI-driven robotics is increasing in operations like those in manufacturing and warehouse settings to help organizations with data and analytics that identify problems in real time, improve decision making, and perform tasks more efficiently.
"S.A.M." will be used as a communication intermediary, connecting a superintendent with a subcontractor from across a job site through two-way communications. It will also be able to traverse the site to remotely inspect work and capture progress photography and video.
Automation is an increasingly popular option for high-volume tasks requiring precise results. It minimizes the variability associated with manual tasks. Here are some of the specific benefits of pursuing automated plating.
Like transformative technologies that came before, the ethics of AI is coming under increased scrutiny, giving birth to regulations and policies constraining the scope of its application.
Can robots help alleviate South Africa's low-cost housing shortage, and give the local construction industry the boost it needs to get back on the path to profitability?
Advances in technology over the years have led to a wide range of innovations for people with disabilities. These include quality of life inventions for people with mobility issues as well as speech impairments and even common color blindness.
ROEQ has launched two new top modules and accompanying accessories designed to boost the payload and lifting capabilities of autonomous mobile robots from Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR). The new ROEQ TMS-C1500 allows MiR AMRs to transport up to 1500 kg for the first time.
As part of a focus project at ETH Zurich, eight Bachelor students built a flying manipulator that can hover in any orientation and grasp objects. The drone is more maneuverable than a quadrocopter and has been designed with the aim of pushing aerial robotics to new heights.
Another issue is the inability of some AGVs and AMRs to drive smoothly while operating slowly, an important consideration for scenarios where the AGV or AMR itself may perform part or component assembly.
In the following article we will discuss how one company employs creative design techniques and online configuration tools to provide customized motors and gearheads for their latest robotic arm and gripper - able to fit into a wide variety of applications.
There are concerns regarding the use of fully autonomous security robots which may get in the way of bringing them to market. Whether those concerns are legitimate or not may impact how quickly robotics will be adopted for security purposes.
