The Role of Robotics in Developing Advanced Autopilot Capabilities

Interest in autopilot capabilities is growing in multiple sectors. Engineers should understand the role of robotics in these systems if they hope to meet this growing demand. Here is a closer look at this technology and how it leverages robotics.

At least 60 million strokes

A "compact automation" is a mechatronic system that performs a whole series of consecutive production steps autonomously. "Compact" refers to the small dimensions, in the millimeter and centimeter range, of the products to be processed.

Robot plays "Rock, Paper, Scissors" - Part 2/3

The app forms the second phase of the project and - generally speaking - is intended to enable players to play against a simulated computer opponent. It builds on the trained AI and uses its results further.

In his search for a suitable camera, he came across IDS NXT - a complete system for the use of intelligent image processing. It fulfilled all requirements and, thanks to artificial intelligence, much more besides pure gesture recognition.

Sneaker and Sportswear Retailer’s New Mezzanine and Ground Floor Feature ResinDek Robotic Flooring

As directed by the facility’s warehouse management software (WMS), a fleet of 142 AMRs continuously delivers mobile shelves to associates at workstations equipped with light directed picking modules on both floors.

Special Agents: Chemical Weapons Disposal Done Right

The M55 rocket stockpile was successfully destroyed without any major incidents. With so many complex systems, processes, and disposal procedures, the Robosuits played a key role in ensuring that all of the careful planning and timing would not be disrupted.

The rise of modular robots and the importance of drive train design

As part of an in-house robot build, optimizing the drive train that powers and controls each joint is vital to the robot’s performance. The most effective way of achieving this is by developing the drive train as a complete module.
