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.

Trends in robotics: Cobots, agribots and medical robots

From recreational robots such as drones, to critical operational robots in the medical field, robotic technology is changing our daily lives.

Speed and Precision or Compact to Power Pack? Drive Solutions for Laboratory Automation

Countless samples are tested daily in analytical laboratories. The benefits of automation in this area is obvious: They make it possible to achieve faster results, higher throughput, fewer errors and lower personnel costs.

New system reduces emissions and fuel consumption - FERRY IN LONDON MOORS MAGNETICALLY

The recently developed intelligent mooring system from iDL, the intelligent Dock Locking System from Dutch company Mampaey Offshore Industries, is the world's first magnetic mooring system. It makes it possible for a London ferry to dock in just ten seconds.

Gecko Robotics Scales to New Heights with Digital Manufacturing Partnership

For a world that relies on that infrastructure for essential access to everything from water to electricity, it's a frightening reality, and most feel powerless to do anything about it. From there came the lightbulb inspiration for Gecko Robotics.

Q4 2020 Trend: Immediate Delivery Autonomous Forklifts

Fewer than 2% of forklifts sold in North America are automated, yet there has never been a greater need for this technology. Many manufacturers are looking to automate material handling processes because it reduces the potential for COVID-19 exposure by reducing human contact.

Intelligent Image Processing Supports Production Workers in Industrial 4.0 Applications

Automation plays a major role in Industry 4.0. Cost reduction, increased productivity and zero-defect quality are factors that are increasingly prompting companies to digitalize their processes. But often full automation also means high investments.

5 Ways Automation Will Change the Nature of Work

Now that AI is on the scene, industry and commerce are on the verge of perhaps the greatest rush into automation ever, and the questions have turned philosophical. What will change in the day-to-day way that work gets done, and what will be required of tomorrow's workers?

ATI Develops Space-rate Force /Torque Sensor for Mars 2020 Rover

JPL needed an automated system for collecting and handling space material as well as moving it through the indexing process. Engineers developed the Adaptive Caching Assembly, an application that resembles a pick and place operation commonly found on a factory floor.

ElectroCraft Drives Feature Easy Setup and Operation

The ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Universal Drive takes the guesswork out of selecting and configuring a drive and motor combination by incorporating all of the features and functions necessary to provide optimal control of a wide variety of brushless DC motors.

How Robots Are Used to Improve Structural Health and Design

Increasingly robots help maintain the structural health and integrity of our buildings and infrastructure, inspecting and repairing bridges, dams, skyscrapers, you name it, in order to keep people safe and make the world more efficient.

How COVID-19 is Accelerating Robot and Drone Technology for use in Everyday Activities

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.

AGILOX Autonomous Mobile Robots are substantially saving costs by applying Artificial Swarm Intelligence

Swarm Intelligence (SI) and bio-inspired computing have attracted great interest in almost every area of science and engineering, including robotics, over the last two decades.

Linux-based Software for Automation

Linux has a lot to offer the automation industry. It is a stable and scalable alternative to Windows operating systems that allows for arguably greater connectivity between devices and systems.

Oasis - Engineering Success With People and Automation

Looking at robots I wanted something adaptable, flexible and quick to set up. We could have gone down the route of engineering our own solution to hold the parts, but this was an off the shelf unit interfaced to our machine with an automatic door, and it just does it all.
