ABB to exhibit at International CES for the first time, featuring innovative robotic technology at the 2015 show in Las Vegas
Highlights include two sizes of patented RoboScreen system, and smallest 6-axis robot, ideal for electronic products assembly
Winter break homework from John Carmack. Gamasutra reprint article "In-depth: Functional programming in C++": A large fraction of the flaws in software development are due to programmers not fully understanding all the possible states their code may execute in. In a multithreaded environment, the lack of understanding and the resulting problems are greatly amplified, almost to the point of panic if you are paying attention. Programming in a functional style makes the state presented to your code explicit, which makes it much easier to reason about, and, in a completely pure system, makes thread race conditions impossible... ( full article ) Also "Lessons to learn from Oculus development team when using the “Modern C++” approach": Modern C++ doesn’t imply necessarly the overuse of templates Andrei Alexandrescu says about the Modern C++ design: "Modern C++ Design defines and systematically uses generic components - highly flexible design artifacts that are mixable and matchable to obtain rich behaviors with a small, orthogonal body of code." Modern C++ has a close relation with generic programming; probably it’s the reason that makes many developers neglect the modern C++ approach. They think that the code will be mostly implemented as templates, which makes the code difficult to read and maintain. In the SDK, the templates represent only 20% of all types defined and most of them are related to the technical layer... ( full article )
LORD Corporation MicroStrain® Sensing Systems was recently selected by Energy Harvesting Journal for having the "Best Technical Development of an Energy Harvesting Device."
TUSExpo, the first fully integrated European trade show and conference focused on the Unmanned Systems industry, has revealed its line-up of speakers.
In another demonstration that brain-computer interface technology has the potential to improve the function and quality of life of those unable to use their own arms, a woman with quadriplegia shaped the almost human hand of a robot arm with just her thoughts to pick up big and small boxes, a ball, an oddly shaped rock, and fat and skinny tubes.
Humanistic Robotics and Critical Solutions International (CSI) Partner to Offer Comprehensive Route Clearance Package
HRI landmine and IED rollers complement CSI's Husky vehicle to create a safer route clearance toolbox for the end user
U.S. Army and U.S. Navy refurbish TALON Counter IED Robots
At Walnut Creek Planing, Rethink Robotics' Baxter is Feeding Wood-Shaping Machines and Facilitating Smooth Transitions on New Lines
PurePixel Solution Now Includes Leaf Chlorophyll Concentration Index to Enable Farmers to Better Determine Crop Maturity and Harvest Readiness
Robots are proving to be flexible tools for aircraft manufacturing and assembly. Their full potential however can be limited by the challenges of programming a robot in a CAD/CAM environment. Software that integrates offline programming, simulation, code generation, and path optimization makes the process seamless and error-free.
From MODLAB (The modular robotics laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania): We derive thrust, roll, and pitch authority from a single propeller and single motor through an underactuated mechanism embedded in the rotor itself. This allows new types of conventionally-capable micro air vehicles which only require two motors for practical control. This contrasts with the many servos and linkages of conventional helicopters or the many drive motors found in quadrotors... ( cont'd )
Growing Demand for Güdel Robot Tracks and Gantry Robots Leads to Major Investment in US Manufacturing
Installation of the machining center is slated for the first quarter of 2015.
UK-based global mining major, Anglo American, partners with Autonomous Solutions, Inc. for a multi-year, autonomous haulage program.
The WSG series of servo-electric 2-Finger Parallel Grippers are versatile, sensitive and simple to use.
If you think about the global population growth and the need to feed this mounting population, farmers must become more efficient at the harvesting and production of all crops. In the future, robots will be utilized to accomplish most tasks, from seeding to fertilizing as well as chemical application.
