Today cobots represent the fastest growing segment of industrial robotics. Here Sophie Hand traces a brief history of collaborative robots and looks into the most promising future developments in the industry.
Event to feature 950 exhibits, 150 education sessions and keynotes from Ambassador Nikki Haley, Tan Le, Peyton and Archie Manning.
Last mile delivery is the most expensive part of the delivery chain, often representing more than 50% of the overall cost. This is mainly because it is the least productive and automated step. As such, many are seeking to bring automation into the last mile.
The development of robotic technology and artificial intelligence (AI) is increasing at a rapid pace. Where once, robots were experimental lab-based creations that were a little shaky on their feet. They are now ready to come into our home to 'help' us with our lives.
Picnic™ Announces Its Automated Pizza Assembly Robot Will Serve Attendees of the Consumer Electronics Show, January 7-10, 2020
Working with hospitality partner and Las Vegas Convention Center food service provider, Centerplate, Picnic will allow CES attendees, for the first time, to enjoy pizza produced by its acclaimed robot using AI, cloud and automation technology
Moley is a pair of robotic arms powered with tactile sensors that come with an elaborate crew: an electric stove, an oven, a hob, and a touchscreen unit. A 3D camera and a wired glove integrated into the unit captures the actions of a human to store it in the database.
Advanced robots can spare human workers from dangerous or life-threatening conditions and environments - like the intricate underwater terrain of a search-and-rescue mission or extreme pressures faced by oil and gas workers. Robots aren't invincible, however, and they need to be carefully designed to handle these extreme conditions. Here are some of the extreme environments that robots face - and how designers test them
Robotics Industry Set for Seismic Change as Growth Shifts from Fixed Automation to Mobile Systems in Enterprise
By 2022, the burgeoning mobile robotics space will start to overtake the traditional industrial robotics market. Currently, mobile autonomy is concentrated in material handling within the supply chain, but mobile robots are set to touch every sector of the global economy for a wide range of use-cases.
New 2019 cobot market report from Interact Analysis reveals: • The growth rate of collaborative robots is leading the robotics industry • Logistics will surpass automotive to be the second largest end user of cobots by 2023, with electronics in first place • In the next five years, the fastest growing regions for collaborative robot shipments will be China and the USA
In "Boston Ivy", two Hachi Auto vehicles shuttle between the community's bus stop and its food court, passing its underground parking, main garden, as well as its activity, marketing, and children's centers along their route.
A 250-Billion-Dollar Revolution: IDTechEx Research Looks at Mobile Robots and Autonomous Vehicles in Delivery and Fulfillment
e-commerce is changing the way warehouses are constructed and operated. One way or another, warehouses must become more adept and efficient in handling multi-item instant order fulfillment. The use of automation is an essential part of the answer to this requirement.
Controlled by HoloBuilder's SpotWalk app, the Boston Dynamics' Spot robot can walk job sites autonomously, capturing 360° images that record the progress of a construction project over time.
This, in turn, is driving inventory stakeholders to move their top-tier sites from majority bulk storage to majority racking, and from traditional aisles to very narrow aisles (VNAs). Rack heights have steadily increased from 25 feet, on average, to 35 feet or more.
The BionicOpter, an ultra-light flying object based on the dragonfly, is named there as the world record winner for biggest flying robotic insect. "It is fascinating what we can learn from nature.
