Preparing food often involves some amount of nuance and reacting on the fly to different variables. This unpredictability is why kitchen robots haven't seen much use. That is, until now.
Recent FAA rule changes will shift how drones may operate over people and moving vehicles. These more flexible rules relating to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) use may lead to significant changes in how drones are used in manufacturing.
The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) is helping to accelerate the field of soft robotics by sharing the design source files and full build instruction for its innovative domestic robot hands.
The 2020 Honeywell Intelligrated Automation Investment Study revealed that e-commerce (66 per cent) grocery, food and beverage (59 per cent) and logistics (55 per cent) industries are most willing to invest more in automation.
Valet Market is a new way for consumers to shop for everyday items. They simply download the app and use their phone to check in to the store. Once inside, shoppers can select desired items and walk out without having to wait in line to check out.
With more companies bringing robotics and automation into their facilities, many people understandably wonder if machines will eventually replace their jobs.
As the use of robotics and automation increases, so too does the need to protect these valuable assets.
The risk to humans in warehouses is well known with the UK logistics sector reporting around 28,000 non-fatal accidents at work annually but businesses are now realising the risk of safety to highly sophisticated and expensive assets noting that these too require protection.
Running a well-optimized warehouse can help maintain high productivity levels, reduce error rates and keep clients satisfied. There are many ways to achieve better optimization, and installing automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) is a popular solution.
Watch this MIT startup's robot unload a trailer blazingly fast. The secret? Keep people in the picture.
Deep-learning technique optimizes the arrangement of sensors on a robot's body to ensure efficient operation.
Stretch's mobile base allows it to go to where repetitive box lifting is required - unloading trucks, building pallets of boxes and order building. Stretch makes warehouse operations more efficient and safer for workers.
AI brings efficiency through big data analytics and performance insights on an unprecedented scale. With this power, AI is advancing supply chains for a cleaner, more cost-effective future. Preparing for this future starts with understanding AI implementation in the present.
Let's take a closer look at next-generation, AI-enhanced industrial robots - today's ripe conditions for emerging use cases, their benefits and promised opportunities - to find out why.
Energy efficiency is an increasingly prominent concern as electronics adoption and environmental consciousness both rise. Robotics must consume less energy to sustain their growth in the future.
Automation in the supply chain isn't a new phenomenon, but it carries new urgency now. What was once a competitive edge is now a necessity. Robotics will power the logistics industry this year, and here's how.
