Creating a Collaborative Humanoid Robot

The goal of our project is to create a dual-arm collaborative robot with a humanoid shape entirely designed, made, and built at Polytechnique Montreal (Canada).

Swift Navigation Case Study:
Yeti Snow Technology

Yeti has the goal to develop an autonomous snow clearing service for use on future airports. The product will be introduced in steps, in parallel with the development of technology for self-driving vehicles.

It Will Be Possible to Integrate Exoskeletons Into Clothes

A stable wheelchair is automatically heavier. The same thing applies to exoskeletons. For a wearer to move about freely for an entire day, the battery has to be very powerful. But this means that it is also large and heavy.

Five Collaborative Mobile Robots Applications

Material handling and the inhouse transportation is often still done manually by humans spending valuable time just pushing carts from A to B. With collaborative mobile robots these tasks can be automated in a simple, efficient, and cost-effective way.

The Benefits of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Similar to UPC, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has had delayed acceptance in the industry. Patented in 1983, initial RFID research completed in Los Alamos during the 1970's has seen limited acceptance.

Autonomous Cars - Safety and Traffic Regulations

Software developers must anticipate that laws and regulations will inevitably change over time, and they should consider developing processes to update and adapt to new or revised legal requirements.

Transportation Shift: Autonomous Transportation Has Too Much Going For It

When people start thinking of a car as something you subscribe to and/or share, we can dramatically reduce the number of vehicles on the road and cities around the globe can recycle the land and convert it into something really useful, like affordable housing.

Autonomous Vehicles: The Impacts Are Huge, But How Quickly Will They Be Adopted?

I believe we'll see at least 10 percent of all miles driven in Level 4 vehicles (fully autonomous in most situations) by 2030, with the initial deployment in large metro areas.

Traffic Control Software Redefines Value Proposition of Mobile Robots

The flexibility and easy integration of AGVs with a Fleet Control System, coupled with a minimally invasive installation, mobile robot systems can provide a rapid return on investment and become a substantial contributor to reduced operating expenses.

How To Quickly Build Your Own Reliable, Inexpensive, And Precise Autonomous System

The OpenIMU open-source development chain is a big step forward - revolutionizing the development process of navigation in autonomous vehicles.

Talking PACK EXPO with Dorner

Booth #N4936 - Dorner will be showcasing 6 different demos with 13 unique conveyor platforms. Two of the demos showcase our new redesigned AquaGard 7350 Series which is scheduled to launch this October.

Talking PACK EXPO with QC Conveyors

Booth #S4314 - Introducing our AS40 conveyors with backlights. These backlights are specially designed to fit within the frame of our conveyors and, when coupled with a translucent belt, provide extra contrast for vision systems to aid in inspection applications

When Cars Think for Us: Autonomous Vehicles and the Role of Energy Storage

In this article, I discuss the primary reasons why autonomous vehicles are emerging, what factors go into developing self-driving cars, and how energy storage is a vital part of autonomous vehicle design.

The Next NBA Star Could Be a Robot

Human employees at Toyota decided to build a basketball-shooting robot inspired by a manga character. The artificial intelligence is named CUE, an articulated humanoid robot that can balance the ball, squat and throw with perfect accuracy.

Case Study: Increasing Solar Inspection Efficiency with Drones

Comparing drone inspection time to relevant manual inspections across the 4 sites, we saw an increase in inspection efficiency of 97%. On a per MWdc basis, cost savings due to efficiency gains ranged from $1074 to $1717 per MW, for an average of $1254/MW cost savings.
