Columbia Engineering researchers have made a major advance in robotics by creating a robot that learns what it is, from scratch, with zero prior knowledge of physics, geometry, or motor dynamics.
Universal Robots Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary of Selling the World's First Commercially Viable Collaborative Robot
Universal Robots marks a decade of pioneering collaborative robots, now the fastest-growing segment of industrial automation. The company is poised for continued growth as its cobots continue to lower the automation barrier within a wide range of industries.
Milestone investment will combine connected digital technologies, state-of-the-art collaborative robotics and cutting-edge artificial intelligence research to create the most sophisticated, automated and flexible Factory of the Future.
As the continued e-commerce wave drives industry-wide pressure to deliver orders on time, there has been an explosion of cobot startups focused on improving the efficiency of picking and packaging boxes of mixed items.
A recent report from QY Research looked at the global construction robots sales market and forecasted that the market would hit $420 million by 2025.
IMTS 2018 takes place at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL September 10th - 15th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
The UR3 was integrated in the assembly line by Hirebotics, a Universal Robots Certified System Integrator that basically works like a staffing agency for cobots, letting startups like Creating Revolutions rent cobots by the hour without any upfront capital.
Top of the line SCARA in speed and precision is designed for easy integration into the production line with predictive maintenance functions
Matt Simon for Wired: Today, three of these machines from Universal Robots handle the brute sanding and painting, while humans handle more complicated tasks like assembly. Some of these workers even turned into robot technicians.
Bill Ibelle for News@NorthEastern: While drones and driverless cars dominate the headlines, another breakthrough-robot dexterity-is likely to have an even greater impact in both business and everyday life
William G. Lovell for Electronic Design: I began using it for a new type of robot called the "Omni-chassis." This is a powered robotic chassis that can carry different payloads or functioning modules.
Matt Burgess for Wired: The ARMAR-6 prototype robot can help humans with basic maintenance tasks in prescribed scenarios. But it still needs to get smarter
ATX West will be held from February 6th - 8th in Anaheim, California. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Micah Kaats for BIEN: The researchers suggest that basic income may ease the strains of job displacement, provide support for individuals engaged in volunteer or social enterprises, and encourage entrepreneurial risk-taking.
Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Its first product is a sensor-laden suit that a person can wear to demonstrate actions so that a robot can then replicate what they do.
