Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a rapid IT project, driven by non - IT staff and faces higher risks, because it demands prerequisites and some key best practices to be followed.
Hoosier Ag Today: A new poll finds 21 percent of farmers plan to operate a drone this year. The poll found 21 percent of farmers will operate the drone themselves, while another 12 percent of farmers indicated they would opt for a third-party entity to fly drones.
Lora Kolodny for TechCrunch: Marble is one of a handful of ventures developing ground-based robots that can navigate autonomously to a customer's address. Their machines look like a large kitchen appliance crossed with a Mars rover.
If you are interested in drones, intelligent robotics and unmanned systems, you might want to visit the AUVSI Xponential on May 8 - 11 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Dallas Convention Center.
ASU Now: Engineering professor to host, present at WearRAcon17 robotics conference in Phoenix.
Jen Judson for Defense The Army is poised to transform the ground robotics industry over the next year as it launches several competitions to define its future unmanned ground systems fleet.News:
A full analysis of a wheel drive's required performance, including peak torque for acceleration and average power needed for typical vehicle travel routines, is needed in order to choose the best wheel drive for an application.
Joel Griffin for Security InfoWatch: The thought of using robots as guards may seem like a far-fetched notion to some, but the technology itself is already mature and starting to gain traction in the security industry.
DroneDeploy Users Have Generated Nearly $150 million in Economic Value with 10 Million Acres Mapped.
The Unmanned Safety Institute, the leading provider of Career and Technical Education (CTE) curriculum and industry certifications to students interested in a career as professional remote pilots, announced today at the National Science Teacher Association's National Conference, that it has launched a major CTE workforce development initiative in conjunction with high schools and colleges throughout the United States.
James Vincent for The Verge: A pair of hospitals in the Swiss city of Lugano have been testing the use of drones to transport laboratory samples. Since mid-March, logistics company Swiss Post has operated more than 70 tests flights between the two hospitals, and announced today that it plans to establish a regular service by 2018.
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: There may indeed be laws limiting the places in which aerial drones can be flown, but if someone sees a drone breaking one of those laws - particularly if it's from a distance - how do they know who's responsible? Drone manufacturer DJI has suggested a solution, in the form of what amounts to an "electronic license plate." The idea is that all drones would come equipped with inexpensive radio equipment that transmits both their location and a user-specific identification code.
A perception of threat and an atmosphere of impending doom is not exactly what organizations want RPA to herald. It is a positive step in creating leaner, efficient and productive business processes.
Jonathan Vanian for Fortune: In addition to data about hobbyist-owned drones, the FAA said that it expects roughly 442,000 drones to be used by businesses by 2021 for tasks like taking pictures of farmland or inspecting cell phone towers. That's nearly ten times as many drones than the 42,000 the FAA said businesses used in 2016.
Reuters: Airspace is among some 70 companies working on counter-drone systems as small consumer and commercial drones proliferate. But unlike others, it aims to catch drones instead of disabling them or shooting them down.
