Preparing food often involves some amount of nuance and reacting on the fly to different variables. This unpredictability is why kitchen robots haven’t seen much use. That is, until now.
Since the robot will be moving in confined areas, often along many customers, a very high level of safety must be achieved to avoid collisions and accidents.
They move like snakes and reach places that are too narrow or dangerous for humans. The robust robotic arms of the Tokyo-based company HiBot take inspection, maintenance and repair to new levels.
Low demand scenarios necessitate a different strategy: tools that can produce more pieces per edge while providing process security. Here, the goal should be fewer production interruptions and the capability to run unmanned production.
One of the most interesting features of this update to the Robotics program is the added module on autonomous robots. Autonomous robots are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the industry, with an increasing number of commercial and industrial applications.
Where there is e-commerce, there is inevitably logistics management. After all, what could be more efficient than a network-connected fleet of AGVs to travel around huge warehouses and find the required product in record time?
A new San Francisco-based startup develops AI guidance systems to transform heavy equipment into fully autonomous robots. Their guidance systems are deployed today across the $1 trillion earthmoving industry.

Recent FAA rule changes will shift how drones may operate over people and moving vehicles. These more flexible rules relating to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) use may lead to significant changes in how drones are used in manufacturing.
Valet Market is a new way for consumers to shop for everyday items. They simply download the app and use their phone to check in to the store. Once inside, shoppers can select desired items and walk out without having to wait in line to check out.
Teams from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia have concocted using robots to screen honey bees while they work. An automated vehicle flies around, catching pictures of the bug, which PCs subsequently examine to uncover potential mines covered up in the ground.
