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.

Encouraging Diversity in Robotics

The robotics industry is ever-changing. Engineers are always looking for new ways to create helpful tools and machinery, but those employees are often primarily men.

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.

With the Power of Autonomous Iron, Caterpillar Pulls Off the Ultimate Trick Shot in Cat Trial 12: No Hands

On a field in the middle of the Arizona desert, a soccer legend and autonomous Cat® machines use proven technology to conquer challenging obstacle courses and score a major goal in the name of safety and efficiency.

XAG promotes drones in Vietnam to boost rice farming while cutting fertilizer use

From direct seeding, pesticide spraying to fertilizer application, XAG's agricultural drones have seen its increasing popularity among rural youth who are keen to earn a decent salary as drone pilot.

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.

6 Emerging Trends in Marine Robotics
