FAA Administrator Michael Huerta to keynote at largest dedicated commercial drone event
According to Laurent Porte, managing director of Metrologic Group, "Today's manufacturing world is looking for ways to inspect better and faster, driven by the ever increasing costs of defects. CMMs are simply too slow and cannot keep up with the production rates.
"We have been working with ABB products and personnel for over 19 years and value our relationship with this leader in automation technologies immensely," said Greg Whitney. "We are delighted to be recognized for our team's commitment to providing the most advanced robotic solutions using ABB product."
microdrones™ and DLRG Horneburg/Altes Land e.V. demonstrate promising new water rescue tactic using drones and compact flotation devices
Crowds watched in awe from the banks of the Elbe River as the UAV rapidly flew to the person in distress and dropped a compact rescue device called RESTUBE, which automatically inflated. The swimmer was able to grab onto the RESTUBE and float until they could be reached by a human lifeguard and brought back to safety.
Sony Establishes 'Research Award Program' for North American Universities to Accelerate Innovation and New Technologies
The Sony Research Award Program comprises two submission categories: Faculty Innovation Awards and the 2016 Focus Research Awards. Each award will create new opportunities for a faculty to engage and participate in forward-thinking research, leading to the introduction of breakthrough technologies that will help influence future industries and markets.

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
