How Robotic Technology Can Mitigate COVID-19

No matter how expertly designed or rigorously tested, every robot is bound to encounter edge cases at some point or another. How the issues are handled and how field ops are done, determines the longevity of the robot system or product.

Putting Food Safety First With Robots - Could Robots Lead the Fight Against Contamination in Food Production Lines?

The CDC reports that around 70 per cent of all foodborne diseases are caused by contaminated individuals. How can food manufacturers better manage the risks that human workers pose to food quality and safety?

The Colossus Robot on the Front Line Against Covid-19

These remote control and highly modular autonomous robots are proving to be valuable assets in the fight against Covid-19. Fitted with maxon motors, these versatile robots are also capable of supporting the unit in large-scale incidents. A report on an heroic collaboration.

How to Improve Worker Safety Around Robotics

Industrial robots offer increasingly compelling opportunities to help companies get more done and promote consistency in the workplace. Robot safety is another area of concern, especially since robots can reduce some of the risks that cause accidents.

Food Safety in Large Scale Picking of Produce

We've talked with many customers who struggled with the cleaning and waste associated with vacuum-based EOAT systems. The air these systems use to attach to a food item is sucked back into the device - and along with it, food particles.

5 More Ways Robots Keep People Safe

Robots may have been accused of stealing jobs, but they're actually doing more than most people realize to keep workers safe as they go about their daily tasks. Let's take a closer look at five more ways that robots are helping to accomplish this.

Maintenance Free UR Cobots Operate Continuously in Harsh Environment

Aircraft Tooling, a Texas-based repair center for the aviation industry, was surprised to find that Universal Robots could withstand the high temperatures and harsh environment while performing metal powder and plasma spray processes. The UR "cobots" have now been in operation for three years without breakdown or service requirements.

Automate for Accident Reduction

Box opening robots, while on a smaller scale, can eliminate the need for workers to handle blades. Unfortunately, box opening robots are not as common as the more traditional six-axis or SCARA robot models.

Practicalities of Small Collaborative Robots

ISO 15066 is the emerging standard for collaborative robotics and covers all aspects of robot safety. The ISO15066 definition of a collaborative workspace is the operating space where the robot system and a human can perform tasks concurrently.

Addressing Safety when Introducing Cobots to the Workforce

Cobots are safer than ever, but care must still be taken during implementation. These 4 steps will help.

SICK is taking safety to the next level with collaborative robot systems

There is an increasing demand for collaborative robots that can work autonomously and adapt to changing production conditions. This requires reliable sensors that detect human presence and can overcome future challenges with the development of collaborative technologies.

University of Texas "opens Doors" to Safer Nuclear Waste Retrieval

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."

Robots & Humans Cooperating and Coexisting in the Future

I believe that systems will receive high-level strategic goals ("Build one car according to the following specification: ...") and will be autonomous in the way of how they achieve these goals, together with people

RoboCup 2018: S&T Test Methods Used to Evaluate Rescue Robots

Without standards and benchmarks for developing and testing machines, there are no clearly-defined rules by which the robots can be compared.

Safe Cut

Safety gate system and safe interlocking for a core cutter. Where axles rotate, masses are in motion and cutting tools are in action, there is always the question of safety for man and machine.
