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.

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.

Artificial Intelligence Drives Advances in Collaborative Mobile Robots

While the robots use sensors and algorithms to safely navigate even dynamic environments, they aren't able to apply this sensory input for advanced decision-making.

Companies Are Buying Services Instead of Robots

Traditionally, robots have been purchased as capital equipment and used to automate a part of the workflow. Recently, companies have been exploring the idea of hiring robot workers similar to the way people are hired: as contractors.

Why Robots Are a Cure Rather Than a Curse for Manufacturing

If robots are to solve the labor shortage in US manufacturing, then they will need to significantly expand the type of tasks that they can carry out.

The Robot Army is Moving

A threat to jobs, a health and safety risk and a technological nightmare. Despite these common protests against robotic technology, demand is growing, creating a new challenge for robot component suppliers.

Who's Winning the Robot Race?

Three-quarters of total robot sales are currently attributed to just five countries - China, the Republic of Korea, Japan, the United States and Germany.

Service Robotics to Reach Greater Feats With Innovation and Advanced Technologies

Service robotics is an emerging field that aims to eliminate labor and improve efficiency by replacing manual and labors tasks. Innovation has taken place across the world to solve the labor shortage issue with cooking robots.

6 Disrupting Trends in Industrial Robotics Poised To Transform Manufacturing

As it is clear that industrial robotics would continue to transform every sector in several ways, here are some of the prominent trends that would play a vital role in the coming years.

Is Robotization Destroying or Creating Jobs?

The human vs. robot topic in workplaces has been in the spotlight for quite a while. While many people are concerned about the risk that robots would massively replace humans, the truth is that robotization is actually creating jobs.

Industrial Robots Stepping in to Help Economies with Inadequate and Expensive Labor Force

The process of training robots through virtual Reality is referred to as Imitation learning. This technique assists a robot to absorb several skills in a low-cost and low risk environment. The robots can easily mimic the human, guided by machine learning algorithms.

A.I. -Rules, Learning and Reason

There needs to be standards by which developers are held accountable for the use and impact of their A.I. technology. Appropriate laws need to be written to govern the use of A.I. And most importantly, A.I. is a tool not a replacement for humans.

The Perfect Storm of Automation, Autonomous Machines and Artificial Intelligence

What if you need to be an expert by the time you graduate from school simply because autonomous machines and automation have taken over work that is predictable and regular?

AgBots: The Fourth Agricultural Revolution, Ready to Take Over Farms

In a nutshell, by bringing artificial intelligence and around-the-clock activity, the robots will help optimize the yield of the farms far beyond what could humanly be possible. Maximizing the production while minimizing the costs in energy, water, time.

What are Service Robots?

Most professional service robots are semi-autonomous or fully autonomous robots that have some mobility and interact with people, usually in a retail, hospitality, healthcare, warehouse or fulfillment setting

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

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.
