AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2018 took place in Denver, CO April 30th - May 3rd. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Applications in which the environmental/atmospheric conditions are controlled are usually applications where having a pneumatic gripper is undesirable. Clean room, medical, pharmaceutical applications, etc.
"At its core, National Robotics Week brings STEM experiences to all education levels across the country, providing greater access and opportunity for the next generation of innovators."
The SCOTâ„˘ solution is ideal for perimeter surveillance for critical infrastructure, distribution and storage centers, data centers, high-value outdoor areas, homeowners associations and other restricted properties.
CCD (charge coupled device) and CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) image sensors are two different technologies for capturing images digitally. Each has unique strengths and weaknesses giving advantages in different applications.
About a quarter of American workers think technology could take over their jobs within the next 20 years, and 13 percent say it may eliminate their jobs within five. Fears about robots taking jobs from human workers have swirled for years, and the concerns are understandable
"The startups that have made it to the final competition are indicative of the levels of innovation in the machine vision and imaging industries," according to Jeff Burnstein, President, AIA. "I don't envy the job in front of our judges having to select only one winner."
The ins and outs of the technology can admittedly get very complicated but, essentially, autonomous robots are a fusion of (sometimes artificially intelligent) software, physical robotics hardware, and sensors.
If a robot is dealing with electronics, it needs to know whether its hand is sliding along a wire or pulling on it. If the robot needs to hold a medical instrument, it needs to know if the object is slipping or in a firm grip.
The Airframe is designed like a backpack and can be adjusted to almost any body size with an adjustable frame and straps. It supports the upper extremities of professionals and skilled trade workers who are exposed to repetitive arm motions and/or stationary arm elevation.
As we see more widespread acceptance for robots in general, we'll likely see even more automation in health care - but some of it is already here.
Known mostly for their smart warfare systems - Milrem Robotics - is entering the commercial market with its firefighting and search and rescue unmanned ground vehicle being developed together with rescue services.
The mission of my lab is to discover new types of materials that will allow machines, robots, and electronics to be more compatible with our everyday environment.
Using an all-terrain wheelchair as a platform, the undergraduates are building a communications network and algorithms for autonomy, navigation, and vision processing as part of a student challenge
We picture a reality where they have safe robots in the home to help lift heavy pots off the stove or heavy baskets off the floor, or walking robots that can carry groceries home or carry luggage.
