From Jumbo, who polishes the floors in Seoul to Spencer in Amsterdam, who guides passengers through the terminal to the boarding gate, robots are becoming commonplace in airports world-over.
Researchers used deep learning to create a new laser-based system that can image around corners in real time. The systems might one day let self-driving cars "look" around parked cars or busy intersections.
SmartSight™ with EMA50 mobile automation system delivers retail industry's first subscription-based robotic solution that turns data into corrective actions to drive better store performance
Over the period of time we have strived to upgrade technologies in order to make our lifestyle more comfortable. We have introduced automation and robotics in order to reduce the manual labor required in manufacturing and production industries.
Today cobots represent the fastest growing segment of industrial robotics. Here Sophie Hand traces a brief history of collaborative robots and looks into the most promising future developments in the industry.
Event to feature 950 exhibits, 150 education sessions and keynotes from Ambassador Nikki Haley, Tan Le, Peyton and Archie Manning.
Last mile delivery is the most expensive part of the delivery chain, often representing more than 50% of the overall cost. This is mainly because it is the least productive and automated step. As such, many are seeking to bring automation into the last mile.
The development of robotic technology and artificial intelligence (AI) is increasing at a rapid pace. Where once, robots were experimental lab-based creations that were a little shaky on their feet. They are now ready to come into our home to 'help' us with our lives.
Picnic™ Announces Its Automated Pizza Assembly Robot Will Serve Attendees of the Consumer Electronics Show, January 7-10, 2020
Working with hospitality partner and Las Vegas Convention Center food service provider, Centerplate, Picnic will allow CES attendees, for the first time, to enjoy pizza produced by its acclaimed robot using AI, cloud and automation technology
Moley is a pair of robotic arms powered with tactile sensors that come with an elaborate crew: an electric stove, an oven, a hob, and a touchscreen unit. A 3D camera and a wired glove integrated into the unit captures the actions of a human to store it in the database.
Advanced robots can spare human workers from dangerous or life-threatening conditions and environments - like the intricate underwater terrain of a search-and-rescue mission or extreme pressures faced by oil and gas workers. Robots aren't invincible, however, and they need to be carefully designed to handle these extreme conditions. Here are some of the extreme environments that robots face - and how designers test them
Robotics Industry Set for Seismic Change as Growth Shifts from Fixed Automation to Mobile Systems in Enterprise
By 2022, the burgeoning mobile robotics space will start to overtake the traditional industrial robotics market. Currently, mobile autonomy is concentrated in material handling within the supply chain, but mobile robots are set to touch every sector of the global economy for a wide range of use-cases.
New 2019 cobot market report from Interact Analysis reveals: • The growth rate of collaborative robots is leading the robotics industry • Logistics will surpass automotive to be the second largest end user of cobots by 2023, with electronics in first place • In the next five years, the fastest growing regions for collaborative robot shipments will be China and the USA
In "Boston Ivy", two Hachi Auto vehicles shuttle between the community's bus stop and its food court, passing its underground parking, main garden, as well as its activity, marketing, and children's centers along their route.
A 250-Billion-Dollar Revolution: IDTechEx Research Looks at Mobile Robots and Autonomous Vehicles in Delivery and Fulfillment
e-commerce is changing the way warehouses are constructed and operated. One way or another, warehouses must become more adept and efficient in handling multi-item instant order fulfillment. The use of automation is an essential part of the answer to this requirement.

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.
