Drone-based inspections provide cost reduction and revenue enhancement opportunities of over $600/turbine when compared to ground-based inspections. The savings value is two folds ($1200/turbine) when compared to corrective/reactionary maintenance.
Home-use assistive devices will first require a great deal of training and effort for the user. As a result, we thought the integration of the Amazon Echo would greatly assist this process, and facilitate ease of use as Echo also continues to improve.
Researchers at Keio University's Haptics Research Center have developed a 'real-time-avatar-robotic arm' that transmits sound, vision, and highly sensitive feelings of touch to remotely located users. This innovative touch sensitive robotic technology was reported in the October 2017 issue of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics and demonstrated at CEATEC (October 2017, Tokyo). The technology is expected to find applications in areas such as industrial manufacturing, harvesting farm produce, and nursing care.
Following a number of successful implementations, we're starting to see robots and their human counterparts work side by side in warehouses, deliveries and at sorting centers. Logistics plays a fundamental role in the success of the manufacturing process and by using robots, we are able to evolve business models to increase productivity - and profitability.
You can save yourself surprises by planning robot controller mounting and wireway routing ahead with your selected robot integrator's project team.
BitFlow, Inc., a manufacturer of frame grabbers for machine vision cameras, annually gives its top five industry trends for the upcoming year.
Hiking, going cycling with friends. With the right prosthetic leg, amputees can once again lead an active life. Ottobock and maxon motor are helping to improve the quality of their lives.
My view is that companies (1) start with a problem that is suited to be solved by a robotic solution, then (2) design and build a robot that solves that problem and finally (3) build a business model that makes the robot the best economic solution to the problem.
Embedded vision solution with USB 3.0 board-level camera.
The NSpect family of Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI) Systems from Genesis Systems Group is making quite an impression. By combining ATI End Effectors, KUKA Robots, and vast engineering expertise, Genesis creates more efficient methods of NDI that encourage safety and increase quality. Genesis' customers have confidence in NSpect Products as well-the company has integrated more than 30 NSpect Systems in the last five years.
Patents are extremely important for robotics companies in all stages. For early-stage companies, patents are often the only way for investors to place a value on a company's technology during development. In this way, patents can make up a significantly greater portion of enterprise value for early-stage robotics companies.
Using 3D data for the autonomous robot.
The Halcyon Showcase was designed to be only the beginning of a national and global dialogue on the future of robotics policy. Several recommendations in the report are centered around the creation of groups of experts and advisory structures designed to continue the expansion of knowledge and policies pertaining to robotics and AI.
Building a simulation for a palletizing cell helps the integrator and customer start on the same page. Once rate, product, and pallet information is input into the software, realistic cycle times can be shown for any layout/configuration.
The combination of new applications for robotics for automotive, military and healthcare applications and lower cost sensor technology is causing significant growth in the sensors for robotics market, according to BCC Research's recent report on the topic.
