What's the Difference Between Analog and Neuromorphic Chips in Robots?

Encompassing a mere four square centimeters and holding more than 5 billion transistors, the chip also features 1 million digital neurons that function via 256 million digital synapses. It's hard to ignore the chip's parallels to the human brain

Securing The Robots

There is no magic bullet for robot security. They are simply devices executing code, which are just as likely to be compromised as any other device in an organisation.

What is Structured Light Imaging?

Structured Light imaging is commonly used for machine vision because it can yield high resolution results. Some of the methods can be used effectively in moderate and high-speed applications.

Lending A Hand - Or Four: How A New, Four-Arm Robot Will Forever Change Neurosurgery

Two hands are better than one, so consider how doubling that to four hands - with robotic steadiness - will forever change neurosurgery, and especially life-threatening blood clots and brain tumor resections.

USA Ranks 9th In Global Robotics & Automation Job Loss Report

John Koetsier for Forbes: In worst-case scenarios, 800 million jobs could be lost globally; in best-case scenarios, robots squeeze humans out of just a few at-risk occupations.

5 Ways Robots Help Keep People Safe

Contrary to sci-fi tales of robots taking over, there's an abundance of ways that robots help keep people safe. Across a variety of industries, robots are minimizing the chances of injury and death at worksites.

The Art of Building a Robot

Sensors and gripper arms can simply be attached and removed as needed. You don't even have to be a specialist to quickly and easily replace a defective part, which makes the robots extremely flexible and economical to operate.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with  Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
