A Guide to Lasers for Robots (Part 2)

Keep in mind that sensor manufacturers are in direct competition with each other. This means specifications can sometimes be put on a slightly over-optimistic spin. For example, range specifications are sometimes measured using retro-reflective targets

What Are Autonomous Robots, and Why Should We Care?

The ins and outs of the technology can admittedly get very complicated but, essentially, autonomous robots are a fusion of (sometimes artificially intelligent) software, physical robotics hardware, and sensors.

Artificial Skin for Robots

If a robot is dealing with electronics, it needs to know whether its hand is sliding along a wire or pulling on it. If the robot needs to hold a medical instrument, it needs to know if the object is slipping or in a firm grip.

Why Custom Robot Integrations With Rotary Index Drives Makes Financial Sense for a Variety of Manufacturing Applications

As manufacturing is increasingly interwoven with automation, companies seek cost-effective options for integrating rotary index drives with a variety of robotic applications such as spray painting, welding, assembly, material handling and more.

New Exoskeleton is Revolutionizing Work Processes

The Airframe is designed like a backpack and can be adjusted to almost any body size with an adjustable frame and straps. It supports the upper extremities of professionals and skilled trade workers who are exposed to repetitive arm motions and/or stationary arm elevation.

How Robots Are Changing the Way We Do Surgery

As we see more widespread acceptance for robots in general, we'll likely see even more automation in health care - but some of it is already here.

Carnegie Mellon Research - Invisible, Stretchable Circuits

The mission of my lab is to discover new types of materials that will allow machines, robots, and electronics to be more compatible with our everyday environment.

The Many Uses of Bellows

Bellows are most often used to protect critical components. Actuators used in motion control equipment are often exposed to contaminants ranging from dust and abrasive grit to metal chips and weld spatter.

Getting Exoskeletons and Transporters into Every Home

We picture a reality where they have safe robots in the home to help lift heavy pots off the stove or heavy baskets off the floor, or walking robots that can carry groceries home or carry luggage.

Integrating Robotics in the Enterprise Infrastructure

With new advanced programming methods, even small- and medium-sized companies can easily integrate robots into their production line or service area to enhance revenues and process efficiencies.

Glide-Line Conveyor Case Study: Automating in-context Conveyor Configuration With Solidworks

We needed a powerful configuration platform so customers would have access to complete assemblies, could easily put systems together using automated snaps, and manage operational states

The Pros and Cons of Pneumatic Robots

Like anything else, pneumatic robots have associated pros and cons. The case studies and other specifics here indicate how essential it is to evaluate the task at hand and determine whether the process is best carried out with a pneumatic system or another method

Reskilling Our Workforce for the Age of Automation

Technology is rapidly outpacing many traditional educational institutions, as they are prone to being slowed by bureaucracy and arent agile enough to embrace the necessary changes needed to provide employable graduates to todays workforce.

Investing in Robotics

The sub-group of surgical robotics is the fastest growing area of robotic and automation adoption in the healthcare industry. We now have the ability to perform surgery with a higher level of accuracy than ever before and even perform surgeries in remote locations

Shortage of Professional Welders Leaves Room for Robots in the Field

It seems likely robots will continue to be instrumental in helping companies cope with the persistent welding skills shortage. This is a strong example of how technology can assist with overcoming factors that cant always be easy to control or solve.
