LiDAR offers a number of advantages over other perception solutions, enabling smart machines to "see" far distances and generate a 3D representation of their surrounding environment to detect obstacles and make intelligent navigation decisions.
Walmart's BrainOS-powered floor scrubbers allow store associates to quickly map a route during an initial training ride and then activate autonomous floor cleaning with the press of a single button.
Before their first mission, the robots first travelled all over the factory floor and mapped out their future working environment. For this the robots rely on a powerful laser scanner. On this basis, the mobile robots can get their bearings later ...
RoboMaker extends the most widely used open-source robotics software framework, Robot Operating System (ROS), with connectivity to cloud services.
The company is expected to dissolve the project later this year and relocate employees involved in development to other departments within Alphabet or help them find jobs elsewhere.
Autonomous mobile robots are a simple, efficient and cost-effective way to automate material handling and in-house transportation tasks in nearly any situation where employees would previously have been required to push carts around the facility.
Automated transportation is not just limited to providing practical solutions for logistical problems, but it also ensures that its solutions enable enterprises to pinpoint and address their logistical inefficiencies in real-time.
The South Korean tech giant said the robot will be developed by its research lab, which has been releasing various robots under the CLOi brand.
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.
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.
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.
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.
LM Industries low speed, electric and autonomous vehicle, Olli, uses carbon fiber-reinforced polymer thermoplastics in its 3D printing process. Additionally, Ollis chassis is nearly 90 percent 3D-printed
I believe well 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.
Atlas does parkour. The control software uses the whole body including legs, arms and torso, to marshal the energy and strength for jumping over the log and leaping up the steps without breaking its pace.

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
