Industrial Robots Have Moved From Maturity Into A Fast-Growth Phase

The past five years have been a roller-coaster ride for the industrial robot market. A market decline in 2019 was followed by disruption in 2020, a record high in 2021, and we now see a long-term positive growth forecast.

Using ASICs to enable high-performance, cost-effective position sensors

'Position sensor' is a broad term covering a range of technologies. In this article, we consider sensors that measure rotation and linear displacement.

Applications Open for Second AWS Robotics Startup Accelerator to Scale Robotics Startups Focused on Automation and IIOT

MassRobotics announces the second cohort for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Robotics Startup Accelerator delivered by MassRobotics to address the biggest challenges in the automation, robotics and industrial internet-of-things (IIoT) industries.

How to Successfully Implement Automated Warehouse-Picking Robots

A thorough efficiency analysis might reveal the retailer's item picking process is a severe bottleneck. With that knowledge in mind, it can safely hypothesize how automated order-picking robots could make a big difference.

Automated drones could scare birds off agricultural fields

In the future, cameras could spot blackbirds feeding on grapes in a vineyard and launch drones to drive off the avian irritants, then return to watch for the next invading flock. All without a human nearby.

Tote-To-Person AMR - a market and technology study from Interact Analysis & Geek+

Now, G2P is evolving. The latest tote-to-person AMR (T2P AMR) solutions enable robots to bring individual totes to pickers, instead of whole racks.

How Does the "Goods-To-Person" Method Improve Warehouse Efficiency?

Traditionally, the goods-to-person method is enabled by large and complex AS/RS systems where shuttle carts, roller conveyors, and stack cranes are used for transporting items. Recently, implementing mobile robots in warehouses for automation has been increasingly popular.

Automation for All

Automation - including the use of autonomous mobile robots (AMR) - can play an important role in businesses of any size and it doesn't have to come with a ridiculous price tag or disruption.
