The Future of Service Robots

There has been a lot of investment by retailers in recent years to achieve a true omni-channel fulfillment strategy. Robots are enabling companies to improve the fulfillment process both in the warehouse and will soon be doing so in the retail store.

Meet the Robots Taking Over a Tokyo Airport for the 2020 Olympics

The majority of incoming tourists will first encounter robots in the Tokyo Airport. At the time of this writing, there are seven different robots stationed at the airport. Each one features a unique and friendly archetype

How to Design a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS)

Real-time operating systems rely on kernel designs to expedite process communication and synchronization functionalities.

Industrial Robots: Encoders for Tool Center Point Accuracy

The use of secondary encoders on all of a robot's axes, as well as the use of linear encoders for positioning the robot relative to the workpiece, enables a level of accuracy at the tool center point

Autonomous Underground Mining Vehicles Are a Thing Now

Depending on how tests of below-ground and above-ground equipment progress, multiple technologies could be incorporated into single vehicles to make them maximally adaptable to operator needs.

Mobile Robotics: Thinking in Terms of Fleet Productivity Is Key to Success

In this article, we will explore the basis and the future implications of this major transition. We will focus on two applications in particular: agriculture and last mile delivery.

University of Virginia Maps Historic Tunnel Using Jackal UGV

The team was able to easily visualize and monitor collected data as they were conducting the survey. As one team member tele-operated the Jackal, another member connected wirelessly via SSH to the robot to visualize the data in RViz on a laptop.

Soft, Self-healing Devices Mimic Biological Muscles, Point to Next Generation of Human-like Robotics

The soft devices can perform a variety of tasks, including grasping delicate objects such as a raspberry and a raw egg, as well as lifting heavy objects. HASEL actuators exceed or match the strength, speed and efficiency of biological muscle.

This New Kind of Robot Can Adapt to Physical Damage

Upon detecting a force that results in damage to one of its extremities, the machine immediately begins coordinating the movements of the remaining parts, allowing it to continue operating despite the injury sustained.

Autonomous Industrial Drones

The PerceptoCore enables us to have autonomous navigation including autonomous landing and a variety of real time missions done without needing human intervention. In addition, it provides a unique safety layer so even if the communication is cut, the drone still understands

Offline Programming Software is Single Solution for Robotic Hammer Peening of Automotive Stamping Dies

Total programming time for one workpiece, including the time to import a CAD file and create a toolpath, was reduced from 12 hours to only 3.5 hours.

Robotics for Attorneys

"Good morning, I would like you to meet your legal team." Artificial intelligence has proven useful in scanning and predicting what documents will be relevant to a particular case.

Reduce​ ​Injuries​ ​and​ ​Increase​ ​Productivity​ ​with​ ​the FT​ ​300​ ​Force​ ​Torque​ ​Sensor

Programming a robot movement that must follow a volume in space is a complicated thing to do. We were able to do it with the path recording function of the FT 300.

Making Parts for Robots

Robotics requires very high quality hardware to maintain the accuracy and durability of its application and function. Using a domestic manufacturer will help alleviate any communication problems between the hardware supplier and the OEM as the product is engineered

Drones and the Evolving Smart World

Currently there are millions of drones in circulation, in amateur and professional use. With the continued premise that they are an unrestricted danger, it should warrant thought as to why there are not more major accidents or incidents than are currently being reported.
