Anirban Nag for Bloomberg: Robots to offset negative impact of slower labor force growth. Emerging markets won't be so lucky, Moody's report says
James Anderton for Engineering.com: Robotics are an ideal technology for fine assembly tasks, such as those in the electronics industry.
Collaborative robots need safe, sensitive and flexible end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT) and there were many vendors - and some breakthrough technologies - demonstrated at the two shows.
Quora via Forbes: I think we'll see this across industries where basic tasks that can be easily automated eventually will be, and it will pave the way for a workforce that is more productive and efficient.
Trend Micro recently released the first in-depth, hands-on research that demonstrates the extent to which industrial robots can be compromised.
Ellen Huet for Bloomberg: A Silicon Valley startup is the guardian of the building blocks of robot life.
Adam Conner-Simons, CSAIL via MIT News: CSAIL approach allows robots to learn a wider range of tasks using some basic knowledge and a single demo.
The Amazon Robotics Challenge will award up to $250,000 in prizes and encourages idea sharing and innovation within the robotics and automation community
Retailers and logistics companies have been opening facilities at a record pace and in this fast-paced world, warehousing and logistics managers are looking for robotics solutions to remain competitive.
By Mira Rojanasakul and Peter Coy for Bloomberg: Are you about to be replaced by a robot? The question has broad implications for the U.S. economy, especially the manufacturing sector.
The category positively correlates with the data speed. I.E. the higher the category, the higher the possible frequency and the higher the frequency, the higher the possible data rate.
Devin Coldewey for TechCrunch: Everyone knows the robots are coming, so we should probably get to work figuring out how we can coexist. That's the mission of Veo Robotics, which is working on a system that gives robots spatial awareness of every object in their reach.
Michael Kahn for Barron's: With the sector soaring, we found two smaller players - Cognex and Mazor Robotics - to keep an eye on.
Leigh Buchanan Editor-at-large, Inc. magazine: Industrial robots typically sell for $75,000 or more, a significant capital outlay. And that price tag escalates dramatically with operational costs. Ready Robotics, a startup housed in City Garage, a Baltimore center for makers, charges $1,500 to $4,000 a month for use of one of its robots, called the TaskMate.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
