To coincide with the 15th birthday of its platform, TraceParts challenged its users to take part in a competition
A manufacturing cell can reduce part transportation because the close proximity of the cells resources makes part transportation almost non-existent.
Researchers will develop and validate systems that enable teamwork between autonomous vehicles
Yuri Kageyama for News Factor: The U.S. robotics expert tapped to head Toyota's Silicon Valley research company says the $1 billion investment by the giant Japanese automaker will start showing results within five years. Gill Pratt [pictured above] told reporters that the Toyota Research Institute is also looking ahead into the distant future when there will be cars that anyone, including children and the elderly, can ride in on their own, as well as robots that help out in homes. Pratt, a former program manager at the U.S. military's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, joined Toyota Motor Corp. first as a technical adviser when it set up its artificial intelligence research effort at Stanford University and MIT. He said safety features will be the first types of AI applications to appear in Toyota vehicles. Such features are already offered on some models now being sold, such as sensors that help cars brake or warn drivers before a possible crash, and cars that drive themselves automatically into parking spaces or on certain roads. "I expect something to come out during those five years," Pratt told reporters recently at Toyota's Tokyo office of the timeframe seen for the investment. Cont'd...

RE2 Robotics and Endeavor Robotics Integrate IOP-Compliant, Advanced Manipulators onto a Widely-fielded Less than 20-lb. Robotic System
The Interoperability Profile (IOP) standard was developed to dramatically reduce the integration effort required when introducing new capabilities, payloads, and sensors to robot systems.
With the UK's first robotics week taking place in June 2016, Graham Mackrell, managing director of Harmonic Drive UK, looks at how high precision gears will be as vital for the advancement of the robotics sector.
The program will assess the usefulness of various Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and a variety of sensors for up close property inspection.
Cooperative Agreement Focuses on Developing Robotic Mobility Technology at Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Manufacturing Demonstration Facility
Identifying the departments with the biggest backlog, the most amount of overtime or the area that receives the highest number of complaints is a straight forward way to prioritize which areas of the organization to automate.
While the exterior mechanics of a robot may be fascinating, it is their programming and software that has the most utility for future workforces.
From MIT News: Video-trained system from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab could help robots understand how objects interact with the world. Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have demonstrated an algorithm that has effectively learned how to predict sound: When shown a silent video clip of an object being hit, the algorithm can produce a sound for the hit that is realistic enough to fool human viewers. This “Turing Test for sound” represents much more than just a clever computer trick: Researchers envision future versions of similar algorithms being used to automatically produce sound effects for movies and TV shows, as well as to help robots better understand objects’ properties...

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
