In the run up to the Next-Generation Collaborative Robots & Automation Technologies Conference - www.next-generation-automotive-automation.com - we have recently conducted an interview with Subaru in which they discussed how next-gen automation technologies and collaborative robotics can improve safety and productivity. A link to the interview can be found below: Steven Eakins, Manufacturing Engineer, Subaru of Indiana Automotive - http://www.next-generation-automotive-automation.com/media/downloads/4-speaker-interview-with-steven-eakins-of-subaru.pdf
Industrial robotics is changing the U.S. manufacturing industry portrait.
Following a hugely successful debut edition of TCT Asia in March 2015 and strong growth at the 2016 event (110 exhibitors, 10,521 visitors, 41 speakers, 530 conference delegates and a 45% increase in stand space) TCT Asia 2017 is moving to a larger and better equipped exhibition space for continued expansion.
ROS-I Asia Pacific Workshop will take place in Singapore July 14th and 15th. We are excited to bring the ROS-I workshop to Asia for the first time! Please visit the ROS-I Asia Pacific Workshop Website for updates and event details.
The 28th Annual National Robot Safety Conference will be held October 17-19, 2016, followed by the International Collaborative Robots Workshop October 20, 2016 in Cincinnati, Ohio, at the Westin Hotel according to the Robotic Industries Association (RIA).
John DiPietro for NHVoice: Lately, Boston Dynamics has released a new video of its robot called Mini Spot. In the video, the robot is seen running around outside, planning around objects in a home and climbing up stairs. The best part of the video is how delicately the robot picks up a wine glass and puts into the dishwasher. The wine-glass act has been highlight as it could be judged as to how much skilled is the robot in handling delicate things. For robots to safely operate around humans they need to be able to sense their environment and capable of knowing how mighty they are. Mini Spot weighs 55 lbs and is all electric and runs for around 90 minutes on a charge depending on what is it doing. The robot is having many sensors, including depth cameras, a solid state gyro and proprioception sensors in its limbs. Cont'd...
The system has been designed to enable the picking surface to be changed very quickly.

Freed from the isolation of the real-time system and from other functions such as the user interface, OEMs are able to explore more innovative solutions with less risk and overhead.
The event taking place in London, from 14th - 16th November is set to bring together those furthest along the maturity curve in automated and intelligent service innovation with those who are just starting out, for a frank and open discussion surrounding the best ways to compete in the digital business era.
Sometimes all it takes to get help from someone is to wave at them, or point. Now the same is true for robots. Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden have completed work on an EU project aimed at enabling robots to cooperate with one another on complex jobs, by using body language.
George Konidaris and Daniel Sorin of Duke University have developed a new technology that cuts robotic motion planning times by 10,000 while consuming a small fraction of the power compared to current options. Watch one of their robotic arms in action as they explain how their innovative solution works.
