The Three Vital Elements That Will Make Autonomous Shipping a Reality

Autonomous shipping has become a topic of discussion over the past year with large industry players stating their interest in developing this technology.

Acting Like a Muscle, Nano-Sized Device Lifts 165 Times its Own Weight

Rutgers University-New Brunswick engineers have discovered a simple, economical way to make a nano-sized device that can match the friendly neighborhood Avenger, on a much smaller scale. Their creation weighs 1.6 milligrams (about as much as five poppy seeds) and can lift 265 milligrams (the weight of about 825 poppy seeds) hundreds of times in a row.

Japan Bebot, the World's Most Advanced AI Concierge

Multilingual correspondence through smartphones can be realized in real time at any time, 365 days, for foreigners' inquiries and requests to visit Japan. The service is in full use offering accommodation facilities like Holiday Inn and Grand Bell Hotel and car rental service "Times Car Rental".

Implementing Robots in Healthcare

The main drivers included improving productivity and efficiency, improving repeatability and consistency of processes, increasing operations capacity, increasing operational agility and flexibility, reducing labor costs, and increasing speed of operations.

EU's future cyber-farms to utilise drones, robots and sensors

Anthony King, From Horizon Magazine: Bee-based maths is helping teach swarms of drones to find weeds, while robotic mowers keep hedgerows in shape.

The Less is More Approach to Robotic Cable Management

Current systems try to keep the cables on a six-axis robot static while everything operating around them is dynamic. Instead, consider a six-axis robot as three separate sections: the sixth to third axis; the third to second axis; and the second to first axis.

Neurotechnology and the Future of Hope

If researchers can use implanted BCIs to allow people to bypass their muscles, indeed, if these scientists can find a cost-effective, reliable way to work around a damaged or compromised nervous system, people suffering paraplegia, amputation, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's, and a host of other diseases that rob them of their independence, may soon find that the frustrations of daily life are lessened.

Robot Delivery: New Tests in Japan

Japanese scientists and technology companies are coming up with new ways to deal with employee shortages in the sphere of delivery and courier service. How exactly? By introducing a robot that can deliver food to your home.

Robotic Hospitals

Healthcare providers say that the robots can help reduce costs, make operations more efficient and serve as a marketing tool to position hospitals as early adapters of futuristic technology.

Education in Robotic Surgery

The Florida Hospital Nicholson Center and Adventist University of Health Sciences are partnering with the STAN Institute in Nancy, France to launch the Basic Robotic Surgical Course. The multi-disciplinary, five-day course was designed to incorporate the safe acquisition of robotic surgical skills through the use of simulation & comprehensive robotic platform training.

Interview with Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE Team Eauligo

For the competition we will launch a horde of miniature robotic submarines called Marine Bees. They take their design from real bees, not just for the way they look, but also because they mimic the behavior of real bees and the operation of a hive to explore and image the ocean floor.

Interview with Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE Team ARGGONAUTS

We are building two types of animals: one animal which runs at the water surface (the "water strider") and one which goes down (the "great diver"). These pairs are the basic units of our system.

Robotic Welding 101

Robotic welding design from the ground up.

Edge Following

With OCTOPUZ, you are able to quickly modify tool orientation for entire path to avoid errors, tilt all positions forward, backward or sideways, increase or decrease the number of path positions or spacing points, and control cutting depths.
