RIA Launches Redesigned Website and New Logo

The new Robotics Online is a much improved experience for our website visitors.

The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) is excited to introduce our new look! Robotics Online, your online resource for industrial robotics, has been completely overhauled. And along with our new website, we are introducing RIA's new logo!


The new RIA logo refreshes our brand while sticking to our roots of being the advocate for the robotics industry for over 40 years. The new logo reflects how RIA strives to connect the robotics and automation community around the world through education, promotion and advancement of robotics, related automation technologies and companies delivering integrated solutions. Look for updated RIA branding and messaging over the coming weeks and months!

The new Robotics Online is a much improved experience for our website visitors. Navigation has been updated so that you're only a click away from the information you're looking for. Search capabilities have been greatly enhanced, along with our "Browse By" function, so you can quickly find the products, companies, and services that meet your needs. Our rotating home page graphic will highlight the most important upcoming events, educational opportunities and news that you need to know. Our Industry Insights (formerly called Featured Articles) will continue to provide you with the latest in-depth news on the robotics industry. Member news will always be prominently displayed on our home page, along with upcoming educational informational, webinars and events that will keep you updated on the latest advances in the industry.

For our members, their company profile pages have been enhanced so that website visitors can easily find the pertinent information they are looking for. We have also updated our ad space, giving advertisers more options to reach their target market. Users can also now sign-in to the webpage, allowing them to personalize their experience on the site. We've made it easy to interact with RIA via our social media channels, as well as the ability to "share" information. And finally, the new Robotics Online has been made mobile friendly allowing access to important robotics information while you're on the go.

And these are just a few of the changes that we have made. We hope you like the new Robotics Online experience!

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
