Even 1 mm of misalignment between the robots end of arm tool and the position of the parts in the table could cause costly damage.
We covered a variety of recently developed ATI products including new Robotic Tool Changers, Utility Couplers, Tool Changer Modules, and other new robotic end effector products and applications.
Well look at electrically-powered vehicles in this load class of about 100 lb (45 kg) up to 2,000 lb (900 kg), and in particular the types of propulsion systems used in them, including fully integrated traction drive systems.
Teams are competing to develop and put to the test hardware and software designed to enable robots to assist humans in emergency response when a disaster strikes.
When you have the combination of high energy density and thin and flexible form factor, you can apply this solar material to anything with a battery that moves, can be carried, or worn.
Ethernet cabling has been standardized. The cables for an Ethernet-enabled Auto ID reader are common with all standard Ethernet equipment.
The goal is to completely automate the brake press to bend a variety of different parts.
In 1962, Rosie, the robot, was more than just a maid to the Jetson family. Well, Toyota is working on such a robotic maid, which should be released in the next few years.
Were seeing growing demand for interfaces that dont require a traditional frame grabber inside the personal computer (PC), as well as a migration towards smaller form factor PCs with embedded processing.
A properly selected current transducer for an application can easily give 25+ years of service. By acknowledging the details behind the data sheet, better performing applications and more robust designs are possible.
Bridging the gap between ease of use and performance, the QX Hawk features a high resolution modular optical zoom system, aggressive X-Mode decoding, and simple plug and play connectivity.
In the future, an autonomous archaeological robotic excavation system could be deployed in these and other extreme landscapes. The design of the robotic system, including its instrumentation and motion controls, descends directly from the fields of medical and construction robotics.
The implementation of ASIC based current transducers opens up functionality that the traditional discrete component transducers could never achieve.
Automatic Guided Vehicle industry sales projections for 2014 are very strong, particularly in distribution. Flexibility, versatility of systems, bolstered by evolutionary advances in controls are some of the key selling points.
While todays technology is highly advanced and offers sufficient end user applications, there is room for advancement in both the areas of research in the current technology as well as new and unique solutions in applications that have not been tried before.

Challenges on the loading dock are characteristic of greater pressures from the rise of e-commerce. Loading and unloading freight from trailers, trucks and shipping containers are arduous, repetitive tasks plagued by high turnover. Even with regularly available staff, manually unloading freight and the constant lifting and twisting results in fatigue and inconsistent, declining productivity. Robotics capable of fully automating unloading tasks bring a new paradigm to the dock. High performance and ﬂexibility push unloading from a labor-heavy, manual chore to an automated, reﬁned process. High-performing DC workers can take more desirable positions, with relief from unpleasant work conditions. Management gets to replace uncertainty and stafﬁng challenges with a reliable, automated process, with data to fuel continuous improvement.
