Joshua Brustein for Bloomberg: Teams competing in Amazon's third-annual contest tackle a problem that has kept companies from automating warehouses entirely.
Action, gesture, motion, and robots can be kept under control through a wearable, small but powerful electronic board.
WPI.edu: The program's stature as a successful academic pioneer in the robotics field has grown worldwide
The company was looking to integrate a robot system that could handle placing a product sheet label in at least 5 different, smaller container models. The customer came to us with the hope of being able to improve throughput and consistency in their label placement process.
Stuart Nathan for The Engineer: Like several concepts in mobile additive manufacture, the Spider bots grew out of a concept to build bases for exploration on the Moon and other planets.
Penn's School of Engineering and Applied Science: Burka hopes to build up a database of one thousand surfaces to help coach robots on how to identify objects and also to know what they're made of and how best to handle them.
Two mobile robots independently transport goods internally in the Austrian location of Flex, one of the world's leading technology companies. The automation of these monotonous tasks keeps processes lean, efficient and flexible and takes the strain off the employees and enables them to devote more time to more important activities.
Farason Corporation Chooses Dorner Conveyors to Integrate with its Robotic Machine to Successfully Assemble Coin Proof Sets
Placing coins into a coin presentation case insert sounds like an easy thing to do, right? But when the application calls for placing several thousand coins in exact places on moving inserts every day, the task becomes much more demanding.
Service Advantage is a substantial addition to Ricoh's services suite that offers businesses access to its global network of highly skilled and certified services employees to assist with lifecycle management for electromechanical devices.
Payload and inertia are both important factors when designing End of Arm Tooling and selecting a robot. The differences between the two and how they affect choosing a robot is explained in this article.
Either electric servo actuators or pneumatic cylinders can be used in robotic resistance spot welding; however, there are distinct advantages to going electric.
Tom Simonite for MIT Technology Review: Melonee Wise's of Fetch Robotics spoke with San Francisco bureau chief Tom Simonite.
Tactile sensing and force feedback are - and have been - problem areas for robot grasping. Humans could see, select and pick so much faster. Yet to handle the millions of different everyday items in our factories and warehouses, costly positioning and camera systems have been required.
Wayne Duggan for U.S. News: The shift toward automation will no doubt raise demand for robotics hardware, but Loup Ventures analyst Andrew Murphy says the robotics software industry could be even bigger.

Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces new lightweight versions of select gearhead products. The new gearheads are ideal for designs where weight is a critical factor. Building on the success of Harmonic Drive LLCs current gear units, new lightweight versions were the next logical evolution of the CS/ SH product lines. With weight reductions of 20-30% without any reduction in torque ratings, the Lightweight (LW) gear units provide exceptional torque density.
