Creating a Collaborative Humanoid Robot

The goal of our project is to create a dual-arm collaborative robot with a humanoid shape entirely designed, made, and built at Polytechnique Montreal (Canada).

Swift Navigation Case Study:
Yeti Snow Technology

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.

It Will Be Possible to Integrate Exoskeletons Into Clothes

A stable wheelchair is automatically heavier. The same thing applies to exoskeletons. For a wearer to move about freely for an entire day, the battery has to be very powerful. But this means that it is also large and heavy.

Robots & Humans Cooperating and Coexisting in the Future

I believe that systems will receive high-level strategic goals ("Build one car according to the following specification: ...") and will be autonomous in the way of how they achieve these goals, together with people

Five Collaborative Mobile Robots Applications

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.

The Benefits of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Similar to UPC, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has had delayed acceptance in the industry. Patented in 1983, initial RFID research completed in Los Alamos during the 1970s has seen limited acceptance.

5 Reasons To Consider Robots for Industrial Inspections

Industrial inspections, regardless of the reason for inspection, can be a very dirty and dangerous job. While not necessarily dull, industrial inspections definitely cover two of the three Ds of robotics deployment (dull, dirty, and dangerous).

Autonomous Cars - Safety and Traffic Regulations

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.

RoboticsTomorrow - Special Tradeshow Coverage
FABTECH 2018

FABTECH takes place in Atlanta, GA November 6th - 8th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.

Talking FABTECH with Octopuz

Booth #C13174 - The OCTOPUZ team will walk through the entire programming process from importing the CAD geometry of the part to posting the code and running it on a robot.

Transportation Shift: Autonomous Transportation Has Too Much Going For It

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 - A Digital OEM

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

Autonomous Vehicles: The Impacts Are Huge, But How Quickly Will They Be Adopted?

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.

In the Cloud with Zimmer Grippers

Not only are KUKA products integrated into the SmartProduction environment, but all active components of the cell are integrated as well. The data is collected in the KUKA Connectivity Box, then forwarded to the cloud.

Understanding Torque Ripple in Servo Motors

Torque ripple must be defined as a function of output load and speed. For load specification the most sensible rating point is the continuous duty thermal torque rating for the servo motor.

 IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
