Exploring the Business, Applications, and Financial Markets of Robotics
HUBweek celebration showcases explosion of region's robotics industry and ingenuity
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.
Nilfisk and Blue Ocean Robotics announce strategic partnership to develop portfolio of cleaning robots
Today Nilfisk and Blue Ocean Robotics announce that the two companies enter a strategic partnership to develop intelligent cleaning machines and robots for both the Danish and global markets. The partnership complements Nilfisk's existing robotics activities - an area that is expected to comprise up to 10 percent of the company's turnover within 5-7 years.
The objective of IUVO is to create wearable, intelligent and active tools for a better quality of life. The first concrete examples are robotic exoskeletons capable of aiding and improving the quality of life for workers in industrial and service fields and for patients in need of improved mobility.
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.
Six-Legged Robots Inspire Students to Study STEM
Production is expected to start in the latter part of the 2017 fourth quarter and be at full production levels within the first quarter of 2018.
The investment will be used to scale up the existing prototype to carry heavier loads, and implement machine learning for improved control and autonomy.
With the acquisition, iRobot will further extend its overseas control of market activities, including consistent global messaging, that will help drive greater adoption of robotic vacuum cleaners and affirm iRobot's segment leadership.
Andrew Cave for Forbes: The Alpine nation is now "the Silicon Valley of robotics," according to Chris Anderson, chief executive of 3D Robotics.

Personal & Service Robots - Featured Product
The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
