An exoskeleton must be lightweight, compact, powerful, reliable, and easy to use - what could be easier? Many developers around the world dabble in this discipline with different degrees of success.
The Innovation Hub at Les Roches Crans-Montana welcomes its first incubation projects and embraces the cutting-edge digital expertise of six world-class tech companies.
Motiv Space Systems made several contributions to the Mars 2020 Mission. The Perseverance Robotic Arm was the highest visibility subsystem development. This role required a close relationship with the JPL systems engineering team responsible for the sample and caching efforts.
The BERNARD prototype may look just like a tortoise; but it reacts like an intelligent, fearsome animal, delivering a barrage of light, sound, and non-lethal electric shock tuned to the predator attacking it.
Toyota Research Institute Showcases Latest Robotics Research Aimed at Amplifying Human Ability in the Home
TRI's robotics research is guided by the Japanese notion of Ikigai, a powerful idea that every person's life should have meaning and purpose. TRI's human centered approach turns typical AI philosophy on its head.
As robotics continues to grow, new applications are being introduced that are making it more lucrative to enter the industry. The possibilities for increasing accessibility make developing skills in voice-activation and human interfacing especially important.
The lifetime cost of ownership of a mobile robot is largely influenced by the design of its drivetrain. If the OEM uses well designed and proven components, the mobile robot will provide many years of service with minimal downtime for maintenance.
There has been an increase in the demand of service robotics solutions across the world owing to greater need for automation of services. With the increasing use of cobots in service applications, the overall demand for robotics has increased drastically over the years.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we've seen many industries go down due to different reasons. However, some industries were able to get past these hurdles and find in the current pandemic the source for their growth. Robotics is one of these industries.
The defence sector is a valuable contributor to the economy, providing a large number of jobs and investing in a number of industries. However the relationship is mutualistic, with advancements in industry benefitting the defence sector.
• Mobile robots will take logistics sector by storm, with a 10-fold investment increase predicted between now and 2024 • COVID-19 will be a significant driver in long-term mobile robot growth • Sales of AMRs set to radically outstrip AGV revenues
Trucking is ripe for disruption, and technology like Internet of Things (IoT) devices and robotics are leading the charge.
The sanitary crisis linked to the diffusion of Covid-19 requires everyone to apply measures of social distancing. Motorized and automated solutions are being developed at high speed as a solution.
Ironhand ® from the Swedish company BIOSERVOTECHNOLOGIES is a soft, active exoskeleton for the hands and fingers. Normally, a gripping action is made possible by the muscles in the lower arm and hand.
ST Robotics has been making and selling low cost bench top robots for 3 decades. Along the way we have been involved in a wide range of applications and projects. One application area is agriculture.

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
