The awards recognize outstanding individuals from all over the world. Since the awards inception in 1977, it has been bestowed upon 126 robotics leaders from 17 different nations. This year the awards will be presented in the categories of leadership and technology.
Markets tend to fluctuate, for example we have not had much interest from the pharmaceutical world in recent years. However there has been a big increase in the use of robots for product testing.
Dürr is building a paint shop in Mexico for its customer BMW Group that meets the requirements for connected Industry 4.0 production. This ultra-modern plant features the first integrated smart factory concept from Dürr in the world is being built at San Luis Potosi
One Master-and-Tool plate pair picks up and holds the protective cardboard in place, while the other Master-and-Tool plate pair carries the staple gun to the load and secures the cardboard pieces to the finished bundle.
Teradyne, Inc. and the shareholders of Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) today announced the acquisition of privately held MiR of Odense, Denmark for €121 million ($148 million) net of cash acquired plus €101 million if certain performance targets are met extending through 2020
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.
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.
Contrary to sci-fi tales of robots taking over, theres 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 future of AI will require facing rapid change, vagueness, and difficulty. We need to be prepared for different adaptations of the future. There is no way to know what path the development of AI will take.
Modular construction isnt new, but robots are making it more efficient than ever while addressing a labor shortage. Bringing robotics into the equation allows more parts of the building process to happen in customized facilities.
VTT's proof of concept demo showed that a range of sensors or smart identifications can be added to 3D printed metal parts during manufacture, in order to track the performance and condition of machines or devices, or verify the authenticity of the parts.
There are 4 possible scenarios for collaboration between user and robot. The bottom line is that in truth the only safe way to work with a robot is to guard it.
Whether it is enabling mobility, improving the ability to handle material, or in the case of Nvidia Isaac simulating the learning required for intelligence, AI is delivering improved robotic capabilities and helping businesses to enhance operations through the use of robots.
As the plant floor has become more digitally connected, the relationship between robots and machine vision has merged into a single, seamless platform, setting the stage for a new generation of more responsive vision-driven robotic systems.
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.

MiR200 is a safe, cost-effective mobile robot that automates your internal transportation. The robot optimizes workflows, freeing staff resources so you can increase productivity and reduce costs. MiR200 safely maneuvers around people and obstacles, through doorways and in and out of lifts. You can download CAD files of the building directly to the robot, or program it with the simple, web-based interface that requires no prior programming experience. With its fast implementation, the robots offers a fast ROI, with payback in as little as a year.
