Hyundai Motor Group Develops Wearable Vest Exoskeleton to Alleviate Burden in Overhead Work

- New Wearable Vest EXoskeleton (VEX) is up to 42% lighter than competing products - The VEX functions without the need for a battery by imitating human shoulder joint and using multilink lift assistant module

Compact Mechatronic Drive for Robotic Applications

This document presents a new optimized integration of a compact gear reducer, specific designs of BLDC motor and magnetic absolute position sensor for high torque per volume demanding applications.

It Will Be Possible to Integrate Exoskeletons Into Clothes

A stable wheelchair is automatically heavier. The same thing applies to exoskeletons. For a wearer to move about freely for an entire day, the battery has to be very powerful. But this means that it is also large and heavy.

Exoskeleton Market to Accrue Commendable Gains via Healthcare Applications Over 2017-2024

Exoskeletons are rapidly gaining momentum across myriad geographies. The huge presence of exosuit manufacturers and escalated product demand across military & healthcare sectors are anticipated to stimulate North America exoskeleton industry outlook.

Humanizing Exoskeletons for Soldiers, Workers and Paraplegics

Combat troops, miners, fire-fighters, EMS and disaster personnel are among those who can benefit from Draper's new approach to developing exosystems.

New Exoskeleton is Revolutionizing Work Processes

The Airframe is designed like a backpack and can be adjusted to almost any body size with an adjustable frame and straps. It supports the upper extremities of professionals and skilled trade workers who are exposed to repetitive arm motions and/or stationary arm elevation.

Getting Exoskeletons and Transporters into Every Home

We picture a reality where they have safe robots in the home to help lift heavy pots off the stove or heavy baskets off the floor, or walking robots that can carry groceries home or carry luggage.

RoboticsTomorrow.com - Q&A with Bionik Laboratories

Home-use assistive devices will first require a great deal of training and effort for the user. As a result, we thought the integration of the Amazon Echo would greatly assist this process, and facilitate ease of use as Echo also continues to improve.

Why Human-Controlled, Force-Multiplying Robots Are the Future of Work on Earth

Ben Wolff, CEO of Sarcos via IEEE Spectrum:

The future of robots could be tiny origami bots that fold into different shapes

Guanhong Hu for Quartz: Shuhei Miyashita and his team used the origami concept to make exoskeletons for a magnetic cube robot, called "Primer", letting it morph on demand to do various things in different conditions.

Has a French firm finally achieved the holy grail of robotics?

Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The biomechanics of bipedal walking are preposterously complex. A French firm claims to have built a robotic suit that can emulate the way we walk.

How Robots Using Amazon Alexa Could Help Injured People Be More Mobile at Home

Barb Darrow for Fortune: A Canadian-American robotics company is turning to the popular Amazon Alexa-Echo combo to help people with spinal or lower-body injuries be more mobile and autonomous in their homes.

Human Locomotion, Robotic Exoskeleton and Prostheses

Why is it so difficult to make walking more efficient in humans? There are a few challenges. People are highly complex, in the dynamics of our movements, in our hundreds of muscles and tendons, and in our wildly complex nervous systems.

ReWalk Unveils Soft Suit Exoskeleton for Stroke Patients

"Restore" NextGen Exoskeleton System Developed in Collaboration with Harvard's Wyss Institute

Researchers developing robotic prosthetics to help restore balance in fall victims

Ryan Terry for Phys.org: Hur's prior research helped him answer two questions: "Can we predict a fall? Can we then reduce the number of falls?"

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
