When most think of sustainability in business, the concept of green processes is not always top of mind. However, incorporating technology, and more specifically robotics and cloud connected devices, creates a secondary sustainability effect that is markedly more streamlined
It's plotting a new course to the destination utilities are already sailing to (a proactive condition based asset management) and that this new course or technology is often seen as a disruption first before realizing it as an opportunity.
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.
As robots grow in popularity, expect to see them in more common, repeatable tasks - like oil changes and tire replacements and rotations - to create increased efficiencies in service operations.
Backed by True Ventures and Ubiquity Ventures, the Austin-based robotics company is announcing its first full-time hospital customer implementing the robot full-time
XPRIZE and California Governor Gavin Newsom Partner To Design an Incentive Prize For Innovation To Battle Wildfires
This competition hopes to leverage cutting edge sensors, networks, artificial intelligence, robotics and material sciences to both detect wildfires at their earliest inception and extinguish them before they spread.
Cross-country expansion kicks off at the Beverly Hills branch, introducing the social, humanoid robot Pepper for an enhanced customer experience in the Los Angeles area
Autonomous robot showcases contextual awareness and next-generation natural UI
The company is expected to dissolve the project later this year and relocate employees involved in development to other departments within Alphabet or help them find jobs elsewhere.
The South Korean tech giant said the robot will be developed by its research lab, which has been releasing various robots under the CLOi brand.
Industrial inspections, regardless of the reason for inspection, can be a very dirty and dangerous job. While not necessarily dull, industrial inspections definitely cover two of the three Ds of robotics deployment (dull, dirty, and dangerous).
The traditional industrial robots, engineered with advanced sensors and AI, have found several applications in manufacturing and electronics, which boosted the growth of the service robotics market.
A recent report from QY Research looked at the global construction robots sales market and forecasted that the market would hit $420 million by 2025.
The Spraybot delivered inch-accurate positioning and instantaneous heading. Its autonomous navigation had built-in obstacle selection and avoidance. It was designed to both detect and identify plants and rows and deliver spot spraying.

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.
