Offline Robot Programming is a technology that is quickly being implemented in manufacturing facilities all over the globe. This implementation results in an increase in efficiency, time and cost savings, and results in less down time.
Matt Simon for Wired: The United States has a serious problem with getting women into STEM jobs and keeping them there.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The reason is that programming a robot is no easy task, which presents challenges when it comes to deployment. That's particularly true of small- and mid-sized businesses, which are unlikely to have a qualified roboticist onboard.
Elizabeth Woyke for MIT Technology Review: At least 15 community colleges offer them, but its not clear how many students parlay their new skills into jobs.
PACK EXPO was held from September 25th - 27th in Las Vegas. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
WPI.edu: The programs stature as a successful academic pioneer in the robotics field has grown worldwide
Penns School of Engineering and Applied Science: Burka hopes to build up a database of one thousand surfaces to help coach robots on how to identify objects and also to know what theyre made of and how best to handle them.
The companys new "Education Bundles" introduce educators to the most innovative robotics platform on the market today.
Phys.org: A new interactive design tool developed by CMU's Robotics Institute enables both novices and experts to build customized legged or wheeled robots using 3D-printed components and off-the-shelf actuators.
Its called the CoRIS Institute, short for Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems. Institute director Kagan Tumer said the new center would conduct research in robotics and artificial intelligence, as well as machine learning, vision, sensors, devices, and new materials. The institute also will explore public policy and ethical questions surrounding the deployment of robots and intelligent systems.
RAMTEC Career center in Ohio is home to the largest, most comprehensive robotics education center in the U.S.
The Unmanned Safety Institute, the leading provider of Career and Technical Education (CTE) curriculum and industry certifications to students interested in a career as professional remote pilots, announced today at the National Science Teacher Associations National Conference, that it has launched a major CTE workforce development initiative in conjunction with high schools and colleges throughout the United States.
The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association recognizes Robomatter's excellence in developing engineering curriculum as part of Robomatter's Robotics Curriculum Continuum
Nick Heath for TechRepublic: Think it's tricky to build and program a robot arm? Think again. Powered by the Raspberry Pi, the MeArm Pi is a robot arm designed to be simple enough that kids aged 11+ can build and program it. The lightweight plastic arm, which can pick up small objects such as Lego bricks, comes as a kit that keeps the number of screws to a minimum and is relatively straightforward to assemble using the included hex keys. It can be controlled via the Pi, either using joysticks attached to the included Pi HAT add-on board or by programming it from the Pi. Cont'd...
