Nashua, NH (PRWEB) September 20, 2012


cmRobot one of the world's leading providers of advanced computer systems, robotics technology and custom software solutions, today announced the release of its Element UGV™, a rugged all-terrain Unmanned Ground Vehicle platform. The company has begun delivery to customers to implement in their robotics projects.

"With the rapid growth in robotics popularity, use and demand; colleges, universities and technical institutions worldwide are including the Element UGV™ in their curriculum taking full advantage of the technology offered and specifications designed into the platform. The Element UGV™ is the ultimate classroom tool for research and development, including; robotics education, embedded systems, Windows Embedded, machine control, vision systems, robot sensors, robot mechanics and autonomous navigation. The Element UGV™ allows the user to process, see, hear, connect, navigate and create," said Rami Morris, President and CEO.

Developed by cmRobot, the Element UGV™ is a rugged all-terrain UGV platform with on-board dual-core computer, 9DOF IMU, GPS, PTZ network camera, three 180 degree coverage ultrasonic range finders and WIFI connectivity. An open source .NET library is also provided to speed up application development. The Element UGV™ Platform is designed for indoor and outdoor operation requiring zero turning radius and fast maneuverability. It is driven by six powerful motors, one for each wheel. It is rugged, light weight, fast, compact and weather resistant.

"The Element UGV™ operates autonomously or on a 802.11g WIFI network and integrates outdoor GPS and 9DOF IMU (Gyro/Accelerometer/Compass), as well as a full-featured dual-core computer system for autonomous navigation. The integrated High Definition (720p) PTZ camera and three short/long range ultrasonic range finders provide the on-board computer or remote operator detailed information of the surrounding areas." said Guy Cefalu, Product Architect and CTO.

The Element UGV™ is one of what is expected to be the industry's most complete portfolio of Microsoft™.NET enabled robotics technology, which will include the Element™, Element UAV™ and other future products currently in the testing phase at cmRobot labs.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
