First-Ever Commercial Drone Expo Debuts in Los Angeles on December 13, 2014 Event Rallies Commercial Drone Community of Makers, Users and Enthusiasts Across All Sectors and Industries
Having conquered automotive manufacturing, the latest industrial robots are about to capture other industrial sectors that, to date, have remained undeveloped. Opportunities are huge. Even in those countries where the application of robotics is at its greatest (Japan, Germany and the USA), the density of robots in the automotive sector is seven times greater than in all other industrial areas. So says the 2014 World Robot Statistics, by the International Federation of Robotics (IFR).
Rethink Robotics' Baxter Robot Helps Klingspor ship more than 1.5 million sanding disks per week
For the Harvest Automation engineering team to get an accurate view of what the robot is seeing, we've constructed a tool that we call Mindprobe which collects all the sensor data, interprets it and displays this in a graphical form.
The Robotics Application Engineers at In-House Solutions are continually developing ways to improve OCTOPUZ, an intelligent CAD-to-Path and offline robot programming and simulation software solution ideal for any path-sensitive application or complex simulation. By standardizing how posts are written, OCTOPUZ saves everyone time while increasing efficiency and accuracy. OCTOPUZ - Complex Made Simple
Standing on top of a ladder several meters high, pad and pen in hand, just to count boxes? Inventories in large warehouses could soon appear quite different and proceed to take flight, in the truest sense of those words: The goal of the InventAIRy Project is to automatically localize and record existing inventories with the aid of flying robots.

From Wired: Ten years ago, WIRED contributing editor Joshua Davis wrote a story about four high school students in Phoenix, Arizona—three of them undocumented immigrants from Mexico—beating MIT in an underwater robot competition. That story, La Vida Robot, has a new chapter: Spare Parts, starring George Lopez and Carlos PenaVega, opens in January, and Davis is publishing abook by the same title updating the kids’ story. To mark that occasion, WIRED is republishing his original story... ( full article )
With the strong support of Ministry of Science and Technology of the People's Republic of China and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China, China International Robot Show(CIROS) jointly hosted by China Machinery Industry Federation in 2012 is the top professional robot exhibition of whole field in China, the official exhibition platform of China Robot Industry Alliance and the only exhibition project supported by International Federation of Robotics(IFR) in China. As the top, largest-scale and most professional robot exhibition, CIROS attracts hundreds of robot enterprises and the full report of CCTV News.
Novotechnik, U.S. introduces the SP1600 Series of compact angle sensors. Housing profile to connector is 26 mm.
From Biomimetics MIT Cheetah project: The high speed legged locomotion of the MIT Cheetah requires high accelerations and loadings of the robot’s legs. Because of the highly dynamic environmental interactions that come with running, variable impedance of the legs is desirable; however, existing actuation strategies cannot deliver. Typically, electric motors achieve their required torque output and package size through high gear ratios. High ratios limit options for control strategies. For example, closed loop control is limited to relatively slow speed dynamics. Series elastic actuation adds additional actuators and increases system complexity and inertia. We believed a better option existed. In the end, we developed a novel actuator, optimal in many applications... ( project homepage ) ( full published article )
