Contrary to sci-fi tales of robots taking over, theres an abundance of ways that robots help keep people safe. Across a variety of industries, robots are minimizing the chances of injury and death at worksites.
Sensors and gripper arms can simply be attached and removed as needed. You dont even have to be a specialist to quickly and easily replace a defective part, which makes the robots extremely flexible and economical to operate.
The future of AI will require facing rapid change, vagueness, and difficulty. We need to be prepared for different adaptations of the future. There is no way to know what path the development of AI will take.
Modular construction isnt new, but robots are making it more efficient than ever while addressing a labor shortage. Bringing robotics into the equation allows more parts of the building process to happen in customized facilities.
725 exhibitors will showcase a full range of technologies, products and solutions in more than 370,000 square feet of space filled with hands-on exhibits, interactive demos, and new products.
There are 4 possible scenarios for collaboration between user and robot. The bottom line is that in truth the only safe way to work with a robot is to guard it.
AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2018 took place in Denver, CO April 30th - May 3rd. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Whether it is enabling mobility, improving the ability to handle material, or in the case of Nvidia Isaac simulating the learning required for intelligence, AI is delivering improved robotic capabilities and helping businesses to enhance operations through the use of robots.
Applications in which the environmental/atmospheric conditions are controlled are usually applications where having a pneumatic gripper is undesirable. Clean room, medical, pharmaceutical applications, etc.
CCD (charge coupled device) and CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) image sensors are two different technologies for capturing images digitally. Each has unique strengths and weaknesses giving advantages in different applications.
About a quarter of American workers think technology could take over their jobs within the next 20 years, and 13 percent say it may eliminate their jobs within five. Fears about robots taking jobs from human workers have swirled for years, and the concerns are understandable
We are seeing an increase in cognitive technology as companies look to have technology make some of the simpler decisions which humans traditionally have made, like, "Yes this invoice has been reviewed, it is accurate, it has the right purchase order number and can be paid."
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
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.
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.
