The outcome for Rethink Robotics demonstrates that even when companies are in a popular sector, they still face challenges that could make it hard to thrive. As such, the company's closing should not be viewed as a sign of a struggling robotics industry.
In millions of years of evolution, nature has produced many sophisticated locomotor systems that engineers use as inspiration for creating better robots. We show some current technical developments that are highly advanced.
Universal Robots Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary of Selling the World's First Commercially Viable Collaborative Robot
Universal Robots marks a decade of pioneering collaborative robots, now the fastest-growing segment of industrial automation. The company is poised for continued growth as its cobots continue to lower the automation barrier within a wide range of industries.
LiDAR offers a number of advantages over other perception solutions, enabling smart machines to "see" far distances and generate a 3D representation of their surrounding environment to detect obstacles and make intelligent navigation decisions.
Walmart's BrainOS-powered floor scrubbers allow store associates to quickly map a route during an initial training ride and then activate autonomous floor cleaning with the press of a single button.
Robotic devices for clinical rehabilitation of patients with neurological impairments come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and employ different kinds of actuators.
Stanford researchers have developed an electronic glove that bestows robotic hands with some of the manual dexterity humans enjoy.
Before their first mission, the robots first travelled all over the factory floor and mapped out their future working environment. For this the robots rely on a powerful laser scanner. On this basis, the mobile robots can get their bearings later ...
Plug-and-play cobots offer a perfect transition from manual handling or assembly to more automated operations. But, it is important to choose one with a powerful and safe grip!
RoboMaker extends the most widely used open-source robotics software framework, Robot Operating System (ROS), with connectivity to cloud services.
The Nuclear and Applied Robotics Group, based in the University of Texas at Austin, has a mission to "develop and deploy advanced robotics in hazardous environments to minimize risk for the human operator."
Funded by a five-year, $3.5 million NIH grant, the academic-industry partnership aims to develop an MRI-compatible robotic technology to provide minimally invasive brain tumor therapy that is ready for clinical trials.
Universal Robots Offers Rapid Response Delivery, Enabling Manufacturers to Meet Tax Deduction Deadline
With an industry leading manufacturing process, Universal Robots can meet delivery deadlines for the Section 179 tax deduction incentive that can dramatically reduce the cost of collaborative robots to address repetitive and difficult-to-fill manufacturing jobs
The company is expected to dissolve the project later this year and relocate employees involved in development to other departments within Alphabet or help them find jobs elsewhere.
Industry 4.0 represents a giant leap in the evolution of machines - an evolution that has already pioneered leaps in productivity and quality of life over several hundred years. Today, our machines are connected with each other, their physical environments, and to people
