How to Design a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS)

Real-time operating systems rely on kernel designs to expedite process communication and synchronization functionalities.

Industrial Robots: Encoders for Tool Center Point Accuracy

The use of secondary encoders on all of a robot's axes, as well as the use of linear encoders for positioning the robot relative to the workpiece, enables a level of accuracy at the tool center point

Autonomous Underground Mining Vehicles Are a Thing Now

Depending on how tests of below-ground and above-ground equipment progress, multiple technologies could be incorporated into single vehicles to make them maximally adaptable to operator needs.

Mobile Robotics: Thinking in Terms of Fleet Productivity Is Key to Success

In this article, we will explore the basis and the future implications of this major transition. We will focus on two applications in particular: agriculture and last mile delivery.

The Delivery Robots are Coming!

When people look up at the sky, they see more and more drones. Yet the breakthrough for delivery robots will take place on the ground - if the lawmakers give the green light.

University of Virginia Maps Historic Tunnel Using Jackal UGV

The team was able to easily visualize and monitor collected data as they were conducting the survey. As one team member tele-operated the Jackal, another member connected wirelessly via SSH to the robot to visualize the data in RViz on a laptop.

Special Tradeshow Coverage for ATX West 2018

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.

Soft, Self-healing Devices Mimic Biological Muscles, Point to Next Generation of Human-like Robotics

The soft devices can perform a variety of tasks, including grasping delicate objects such as a raspberry and a raw egg, as well as lifting heavy objects. HASEL actuators exceed or match the strength, speed and efficiency of biological muscle.

MIT Develops Autonomous "Socially Aware" Robot Using Jackal UGV

The problem of navigating safely among pedestrians poses unique challenges. These include the increased unpredictability of pedestrians' actions, as well as the lack of navigation guidelines, such as lane lines.

This New Kind of Robot Can Adapt to Physical Damage

Upon detecting a force that results in damage to one of its extremities, the machine immediately begins coordinating the movements of the remaining parts, allowing it to continue operating despite the injury sustained.

Autonomous Industrial Drones

The PerceptoCore enables us to have autonomous navigation including autonomous landing and a variety of real time missions done without needing human intervention. In addition, it provides a unique safety layer so even if the communication is cut, the drone still understands

Offline Programming Software is Single Solution for Robotic Hammer Peening of Automotive Stamping Dies

Total programming time for one workpiece, including the time to import a CAD file and create a toolpath, was reduced from 12 hours to only 3.5 hours.

Robotics for Attorneys

"Good morning, I would like you to meet your legal team." Artificial intelligence has proven useful in scanning and predicting what documents will be relevant to a particular case.

Forms of Closed Loop Stepper Control

2017 - Most Popular Article - To achieve the highest performance, the stepper motor can be treated as a 2 phase brushless servo motor. Current to the motor will then be controlled as a function of the error signal just as with standard servo motors.

Reduce​ ​Injuries​ ​and​ ​Increase​ ​Productivity​ ​with​ ​the FT​ ​300​ ​Force​ ​Torque​ ​Sensor

Programming a robot movement that must follow a volume in space is a complicated thing to do. We were able to do it with the path recording function of the FT 300.
