Trucking is ripe for disruption, and technology like Internet of Things (IoT) devices and robotics are leading the charge.
Ironhand ® from the Swedish company BIOSERVOTECHNOLOGIES is a soft, active exoskeleton for the hands and fingers. Normally, a gripping action is made possible by the muscles in the lower arm and hand.
Can a robot have feelings? Some robots are programmed to show emotion, from online artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot assistants to Sophia the social humanoid robot who can give emotional responses in a conversation.
The novel coronavirus pandemic hit many industries hard, leaving analysts unsure of when things might bounce back for those sectors. However, the combination of the robotics industry and COVID-19 could be beneficial. Here are five reasons why.
When orders are placed in restaurants within the plaza via Baemin application, the robot delivers to the ground floor of customer's residence.
Six-storage delivery solution showcases the start-up's continued leadership in last inch drone delivery logistics
Die casting, the process of forcing molten metal into molds, is far from new. Today, casting processes use a lot more advanced technology, specifically robots, than in years past. These 'bots have many advantages in die casting, but energy saving is one of the most substantial.
A vast majority of manufacturers are integrating robotic systems in production facilities to enhance production capacity, boost profit margins, and cut operational costs. These trends have created a substantial demand for robotic components, including robot sensors like 3D vision.
From recreational robots such as drones, to critical operational robots in the medical field, robotic technology is changing our daily lives.
The recently developed intelligent mooring system from iDL, the intelligent Dock Locking System from Dutch company Mampaey Offshore Industries, is the world's first magnetic mooring system. It makes it possible for a London ferry to dock in just ten seconds.
Cleaning robotics were already on the rise pre-COVID. Now, sanitation has become a top priority for businesses and health organizations around the world. At the same time, many companies are dealing with a shortage of sanitation workers.

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.
