Teaching Robots to Help People in their Homes

This method teaches a robot how to perform a single example task, while simulation addresses the problem in a more statistical way, conducting tens of thousands of virtual experiments to find the right solution for performing that task.

Sensorless Control of Brushless Motors

Many applications would benefit from a brushless motor without a sensor. There are various options for realizing this. A method developed by maxon is now setting new standards for precision and reliability.

Continuous operation excellence

Food and beverage production is becoming continuous to keep up with rising demands. To maintain the flow of products and to make sure there are low levels of waste, spoilage or contamination inside a continuous system, automation must be integrated into the production line.

Slotless Brushless Servo Motors Improve Machine Performance.

From the outside it looks just like any other industrial brushless servo motor but inside it utilized advanced manufacturing techniques to provide higher torque, higher speed, smoother operation, higher efficiency, and better inertial matching in a smaller package.

Vision in Challenging Lighting Environments

Digital image sensors work based on the Photoelectric effect. When the image sensor is exposed to light (photons), an equivalent charge is produced by the image sensor. It is then converted to image data.

ABB demonstrates concept of mobile laboratory robot for Hospital of the Future

• Mobile and autonomous YuMi® laboratory robot will be designed to work alongside medical staff and lab workers • New robotics technologies will be developed in ABB's first global healthcare research hub at Texas Medical Center (TMC) Innovation Institute in Houston

Smart Gripper for Small Collaborative Robots

With the growth and proliferation of collaborative robots, there has become an increased need for a wide variety of grippers and end effectors in general. One of the more challenging applications is for automated gauging and measurement of small parts.

World's first haptic telerobot hand (Tactile Telerobot) to officially launch at first public event at CEATEC 2019 in Japan

The exhibit will be divided into several scenario-based themes, each demonstrating a distinctive way to implement the technology. There will be scenarios for the use of robots in a kitchen, school, fish market, living room, laboratory and skill sharing.

Robofill 4.0 - Robot and Gripper-assisted Filling Concept for Customized Bottle Supply

The Zimmer Group development team also faced a tremendous challenge in developing special gripper fingers, which were intended to handle any potential type of bottle from 0.33 l up to 0.75 l by gripping the neck and body of the bottle.

Rapid Launches and Strategic Acquisitions Propel Growth of Warehouse Robotics

The warehouse robotics have offered a more efficient, reliable, and accurate way of handling demand and supply equation by letting robots perform functions such as pick-place, packaging, transportation, and palletizing.

Where Is The Industry Leading In Terms Of Autonomous Car Tech?

With the rising enhancement in technology, the autonomous car industry is flourishing day-by-day. Along with the behemoths in the automobile sector, various tech firms in the industry are brainstorming to launch their autonomous cars.

Next-Gen Control System for Prosthetics

At its core, the Coapt Gen2 system uses algorithmic pattern classification to determine wearers' intuitive, real-time intent for moving the joints of a prosthetic arm and/or hand.

Industry Develops Realistic Future for Autonomous Cars

The good news is progress is being made as the industry's best minds address each issue when it comes up. The one thing we can say with confidence is that tomorrow's vehicle will run on data...tons and tons of data which is comforting for flash industry people.
