Robots as inconspicuous as they are ubiquitous represent the vision of researchers in the new and burgeoning field of material robotics.
Drone deliveries drastically reduce the cost of last-mile deliveries while meeting customers' demand for receiving their orders as quickly as possible. In Iceland, Flytrex's partner, e-commerce marketplace AHA, has experienced a 60% reduction in cost per delivery.
Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Its first product is a sensor-laden suit that a person can wear to demonstrate actions so that a robot can then replicate what they do.
Robotic bugs are a game changing technology, opening up possibilities that were fiction a generation ago.
With expertise in robotics, bioengineering, behavioral science, nerve regeneration, electrophysiology, microfluidic devices, and orthopedic surgery, the research team is creating a living pathway from the robot's touch sensation to the user's brain
Our approach is to drive modularity and mobility into the core system architecture so that the automation is less static and monolithic, and can adapt to the changing nature of scientific research.
The group will bring together members of the security industry, end users, technology experts and other interested parties to promote best practices regarding the use of robots in security
Oregon State University via Science Daily: "The point here with something like a self-adjusting shoe is it no longer resembles a robot -- that's kind of the direction of ubiquity we're imagining."
UTA's Emotional Robotics Living Lab Will Research How Robots Can Be Integrated Into Homes as Companions and Caregivers
The University of Texas at Arlington has launched a new Emotional Robotics Living Lab to investigate what our future will look like with robots and how they can be integrated into the home to provide physical and emotional support.
The autonomy of trucking needs more governmental attention and support than personal vehicles or business and commerce will be stuck in some warehouse … somewhere.
We use drones to survey cell sites when our engineers are not able to safely access sites to visually survey them. In specific situations, drones can save time by surveying multiple sites during one flight and by sharing information in real time.
James Vincent for The Verge: Each muscle consists of a sealed bag filled with air or fluid, containing a folding origami structure that functions as the skeleton.
Cobots, or Collaborative robots, take away some of the environmental, and spatial, dangers traditional robots may cause, allowing them to work alongside humans. Their interaction with humans is more natural, they share the same workspace, and Cobots are very easily reprogrammed.
An Oregon State University computer science professor is part of a team that will receive up to $7.1 million to develop a drone swarm infrastructure to help the U.S. military in urban combat.
Without tool changers, we have to manually detach the tool from the robot with bolts and thumbscrews, wheel the tool away on a cart, and attach a new tool the same way. This is tedious and not possible for one person to do by themselves.

Dynatect's Gortite VF (Vertical Fabric) Automated Machine Safety Door is intended for automation and safe machine access to minimize cycle time and maximize production time. The automated roll-up door separates machines with hazardous operations from other processes, material handling equipment, and people. The Gortite VF Door contains typical machine/process generated hazards including light debris, fluid splatter/mist, and weld smoke/sparks/flash.
