RobotShop released the official preview video for the new Quadrino Nano Flight Controller. The scene is that of a futuristic drone / UAV control center where a commander has full view over any situation and relays commands to small number of skilled professionals which in turn operate a fleet of UAVs. The Quadrino Nano offers excellent value: it includes all sensors required for modern UAV flight (with many spare IO pins), is compatible with a variety of programs and is housed in a semi-transparent case which includes vibration damping built-in. The design is a culmination of FlyingEinstein‘s flight controller technology.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

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.
