Advances in technology over the years have led to a wide range of innovations for people with disabilities. These include quality of life inventions for people with mobility issues as well as speech impairments and even common color blindness.
ROEQ has launched two new top modules and accompanying accessories designed to boost the payload and lifting capabilities of autonomous mobile robots from Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR). The new ROEQ TMS-C1500 allows MiR AMRs to transport up to 1500 kg for the first time.
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.
Another issue is the inability of some AGVs and AMRs to drive smoothly while operating slowly, an important consideration for scenarios where the AGV or AMR itself may perform part or component assembly.
In the following article we will discuss how one company employs creative design techniques and online configuration tools to provide customized motors and gearheads for their latest robotic arm and gripper - able to fit into a wide variety of applications.
There are concerns regarding the use of fully autonomous security robots which may get in the way of bringing them to market. Whether those concerns are legitimate or not may impact how quickly robotics will be adopted for security purposes.
The turning of the lead screw transfers the motor power to the spring. It presses from the lower belt on the upper belt, supports the upper body and relieves the lumbar spine.
Insurance can generate high costs, with general liability alone costing businesses a median of $500 a year. If robots can reduce premiums and claims, it would make a strong argument in their favor.
The GPU is constantly evolving, and not just for gaming or 3D graphics for product design, but it is increasingly be tasked with supporting machine learning and AI inference analysis through its parallel processing with the ability of simultaneous multiple computations.
Modern transportation wouldn't be the same without robots, and the future will only serve to solidify this. Here's how robots are pushing the transportation industry forward and where they could go from here.
The RTOS must evolve to meet the rising demand of artificial intelligence and other intelligent edge technologies. Clear synergies and dependencies among AI, security, connectivity, and data analytics can only be addressed with modern RTOS development.
Scientists propose a novel mechanism for inducing high-speed bending in thick crystals by heating them up with light
If you are an investor, business leader, or technology user who seeks to understand the technologies you are investing in, this article is for you. What follows is an explanation of vision-guided robotics and deep-learning algorithms.
Using Access Control Lists (ACLs) to establish rules that grant or deny access to different data types includes sensitive data. Every user in an application has a role, and every role has a set of permissions configured to perform or restrict actions to entities and system capabilities.
We are currently focused on two main solutions - human presence detection with depth for autonomous mobile robots and UV-C disinfection robots. We also focus on obstacle detection and avoidance as well as localization and mapping for AMRs.

OCTOPUZ makes complex robot programming simple through cutting-edge Offline Robot Programming Software (OLRP) that enables detailed robot operations, complete with machinery and manufacturing components, to be first simulated on a computer, then output for the real world. Within this virtual cell, OCTOPUZ uses built-in machine logic to identify the optimal toolpath trajectory and program the required code for a multitude of industrial tasks. The code is then output for the specific robot brand, for use in the real world.
