Deep-learning technique optimizes the arrangement of sensors on a robot's body to ensure efficient operation.
Stretch's mobile base allows it to go to where repetitive box lifting is required - unloading trucks, building pallets of boxes and order building. Stretch makes warehouse operations more efficient and safer for workers.
Not every deployment of new robots goes smoothly. There are significant challenges to adopting any new technology, and the complexity of cutting-edge robotics means there is serious room for error when deploying industrial robots
To customize a robot interface, the only thing required is the robot HMI. However, there is a wide array of HMIs that differ from each other based on several factors. The challenge is to determine which is the best HMI.
Trade publications offer significant benefits for manufacturers in need of boosting inbound leads and sales, fast.
AI brings efficiency through big data analytics and performance insights on an unprecedented scale. With this power, AI is advancing supply chains for a cleaner, more cost-effective future. Preparing for this future starts with understanding AI implementation in the present.
Let's take a closer look at next-generation, AI-enhanced industrial robots - today's ripe conditions for emerging use cases, their benefits and promised opportunities - to find out why.
Energy efficiency is an increasingly prominent concern as electronics adoption and environmental consciousness both rise. Robotics must consume less energy to sustain their growth in the future.
Automation in the supply chain isn't a new phenomenon, but it carries new urgency now. What was once a competitive edge is now a necessity. Robotics will power the logistics industry this year, and here's how.
The COVID-19 crisis has spurred life sciences labs to ramp up output at warp speed - and Stäubli Robotics is helping to meet critical needs.
Robots are rapidly changing operations in numerous industries - from agriculture to medicine. The construction sector is also investing in them, and that trend seems set to continue.
While American manufacturers took a hit early on, the sector experienced a 30-month high in December as some U.S. companies calmed supply chain chaos by turning to domestic sourcing options.
With a clear shift towards more digitally enabled roles and a growing need for more automation and/or robotics across all industries, this requires more skilled people within these environments.
There is no doubt that the robotics industry will keep developing in the upcoming years. But the problem is that this industry is already experiencing serious labor shortages and a lack of talent.
Researchers have developed a passive acoustic remote sensing method for unmanned underwater vehicles, which was demonstrated in Charles River field experiments, pictured here.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent
• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
