Matt Simon for Wired: Give it coordinates, tell it what size the hole should be, hit enter, and it tears off and digs the thing with impressive accuracy.
Matt McFarland for CNN Money: Google, a company that's built everything from a search engine to a self-driving car, will now try its hand at a city neighborhood.
Warehouses should be thinking about safety, simplicity and software.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The process begins on a robotic assembly line in a centralized kitchen, but pizzas finish cooking in ovens inside of trucks en route to delivery.
Amit Katwala for IMECHE: The new model will incorporate internet connectivity and have the ability to control domestic appliances with voice commands, like the Amazon Echo or Google Home devices, but will also behave and move like a real dog.
Using our technology, we are able to reduce the cost of the whole vehicle (including the chassis, the computing hardware, and the sensing hardware, and the software stack) under $10,000 USD.
Guanhong Hu for Quartz: Shuhei Miyashita and his team used the origami concept to make exoskeletons for a magnetic cube robot, called "Primer", letting it morph on demand to do various things in different conditions.
Elizabeth Woyke for MIT Technology Review: At least 15 community colleges offer them, but it's not clear how many students parlay their new skills into jobs.
A self-contained soft actuator three times stronger than natural muscle, without the need of externals, signals a breakthrough in soft robotics.
The module allows rapid development of new robots by providing all the sensors and sensor processing software in one compact, pre-calibrated device with multiple interfaces supported to meet varying developer requirements.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The biomechanics of bipedal walking are preposterously complex. A French firm claims to have built a robotic suit that can emulate the way we walk.
Unlike memory folks in the audience who like to keep their secrets secret, Hyundai/Kia and Bzeih have laid out their roadmap for the next decade with some autonomous systems by 2020 and mass production by 2022.
The Atlas Pro is particularly suited to infrastructure inspection, emergency response, security and reconnaissance. The Blue-J fixed-wing UAV is ideally for security HLS missions and long-range infrastructure inspections
Andrew Cave for Forbes: The Alpine nation is now "the Silicon Valley of robotics," according to Chris Anderson, chief executive of 3D Robotics.
Andy Pasztor for The Wall Street Journal: Prompted by the proliferation of drones, international aviation authorities on Friday will kick off a first-of-its-kind symposium soliciting industry ideas about potential global operating standards.
