The main drivers included improving productivity and efficiency, improving repeatability and consistency of processes, increasing operations capacity, increasing operational agility and flexibility, reducing labor costs, and increasing speed of operations.
Anthony King, From Horizon Magazine: Bee-based maths is helping teach swarms of drones to find weeds, while robotic mowers keep hedgerows in shape.
Current systems try to keep the cables on a six-axis robot static while everything operating around them is dynamic. Instead, consider a six-axis robot as three separate sections: the sixth to third axis; the third to second axis; and the second to first axis.
If researchers can use implanted BCIs to allow people to bypass their muscles, indeed, if these scientists can find a cost-effective, reliable way to work around a damaged or compromised nervous system, people suffering paraplegia, amputation, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's, and a host of other diseases that rob them of their independence, may soon find that the frustrations of daily life are lessened.
Japanese scientists and technology companies are coming up with new ways to deal with employee shortages in the sphere of delivery and courier service. How exactly? By introducing a robot that can deliver food to your home.
Healthcare providers say that the robots can help reduce costs, make operations more efficient and serve as a marketing tool to position hospitals as early adapters of futuristic technology.
The Florida Hospital Nicholson Center and Adventist University of Health Sciences are partnering with the STAN Institute in Nancy, France to launch the Basic Robotic Surgical Course. The multi-disciplinary, five-day course was designed to incorporate the safe acquisition of robotic surgical skills through the use of simulation & comprehensive robotic platform training.
For the competition we will launch a horde of miniature robotic submarines called Marine Bees. They take their design from real bees, not just for the way they look, but also because they mimic the behavior of real bees and the operation of a hive to explore and image the ocean floor.
We are building two types of animals: one animal which runs at the water surface (the "water strider") and one which goes down (the "great diver"). These pairs are the basic units of our system.
Robotic welding design from the ground up.
With OCTOPUZ, you are able to quickly modify tool orientation for entire path to avoid errors, tilt all positions forward, backward or sideways, increase or decrease the number of path positions or spacing points, and control cutting depths.
The main target is to get the traffic and the parking under control, calm the traffic on the square, inform drivers where they can park the car, and send them to the parking place directly.
The largest submarine of WWII has been sitting on the bottom of the ocean off the Japanese coast for 70 years. Researchers finally found the lost wreck with the aid of an underwater robot - and Swiss drive technology.
Kyle Mizokami for Popular Mechanics: A drone carrying a grenade infiltrated an ammunition dump in the Ukraine, setting off an explosion that caused an astounding billion dollars worth of damage.
When the sensor is integrated into a wearable device and placed across a joint, it is stretched when the joint moves. We can correlate the joint's movement and sensor's capacitance change in order to monitor motion.

EPC is excited to announce our NEW online 3D Configurator. This new tool makes it even easier to configure EPC's products exactly how you need them for your application. The 3D Configurator interface is intuitive and works in any web browser for both desktop and mobile. It'll only take you a moment to learn your way around the program. Careful, though: it's so fun to play with, you may spend a whole afternoon on it!
