As part of a focus project at ETH Zurich, eight Bachelor students built a flying manipulator that can hover in any orientation and grasp objects. The drone is more maneuverable than a quadrocopter and has been designed with the aim of pushing aerial robotics to new heights.
Recent FAA rule changes will shift how drones may operate over people and moving vehicles. These more flexible rules relating to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) use may lead to significant changes in how drones are used in manufacturing.
Teams from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia have concocted using robots to screen honey bees while they work. An automated vehicle flies around, catching pictures of the bug, which PCs subsequently examine to uncover potential mines covered up in the ground.
American Robotics Becomes First Company Approved by the FAA To Operate Automated Drones Without Human Operators On-Site
A seminal milestone in the drone industry, American Robotics now meets the safety requirements needed to make drones scalable for widespread commercial use.
As barriers between human activities and robotic capabilities diminish - moving beyond the fenced activities of last-generation industrial robots - new collaboration and workflow models are bringing humans and robots together in industry.
With the breakthrough in vaccination and when situation is under control, last mile delivery will certainly not look the same, as the companies are preparing for innovation shift post lift of the restrictions to rapidly assess and adapt their supply chains.
The defence sector is a valuable contributor to the economy, providing a large number of jobs and investing in a number of industries. However the relationship is mutualistic, with advancements in industry benefitting the defence sector.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced changes to our daily lives, but when it comes to technology, not all changes have been unwelcomed. In many ways, shifting the way we live has accelerated the use of technology to a level that we were only beginning to dip our toes into.
By the year 2022, robotics in law enforcement is expected to be a $5.7 billion industry. This statistic is on trend with a datasheet which found that police agencies recently acquired a record number of robotics available from the U.S. military.
Warehouses and distribution centers (DCs) are an integral part of the move towards intelligent automation. It is a trend that will accelerate, as the world responds to a normalization of consumer demand.
The capabilities of the UVH-170 unmanned helicopter address many social (medical, pharmaceutical, remote communities, humanitarian aid, etc.) and economic (mining, oil & gas, courier, etc.) use-cases being requested by the customers.
The Aertos drones are able to fly stably indoors without external navigational aids such as GPS, VOP, LORAN, magnetic bearings, optical flow, or similar external navigational aids.
Drones offer some promising solutions to some of our perennial public challenges. We'll take a look at a few key areas in which they're already starting to make a difference across various community issues.
