I see three exciting and significant trends taking place right now that I think will begin to gain some very real traction in 2015.
Precise Automation Introduces a New Collaborative 6-axis Articulated Robot with Integrated Controller and Harnesses
Designed as an intrinsically safe mechanism, it will not injure a user even if it accidentally impacts them at full speed.
BOURBON has commissioned 3 next-generation Heavy Duty Work ROVs (Remote Operated Vehicle) designed by FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics. Capable of operating at depths of up to 3000 m, these underwater vehicles will be deployed on Multi-Purpose Support Vessels (MPSV) such as the Bourbon Evolution 800 series.

Trimble Adds Analytic Tool for Determining Field Profitability in its Connected Farm Solution; Introduces New Field Record-Keeping App
New Feature Enables Increased Financial Awareness by Enabling Growers to Easily Determine Profitability of their Fields and Crops
From DARPA: The teams using the DARPA-developed Atlas robot got their first look at the newly upgraded system during a technical shakeout the week of January 12th in Waltham, Mass. The upgraded Atlas is 75 percent new—only the lower legs and feet were carried over from the original design. Lighter materials allowed for inclusion of a battery and a new pump system with only a modest increase in overall weight; the upgraded robot is 6-foot-2 (1.88 meters) and weighs 345 pounds (156.5 kilograms). The most significant changes are to the robot’s power supply and pump. Atlas will now carry an onboard 3.7-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, with the potential for one hour of “mixed mission” operation that includes walking, standing, use of tools, and other movements. This will drive a new variable-pressure pump that allows for more efficient operation... ( full details )
