How Verizon 5G is Powering the Future of Robotics

5G, especially when combined with MEC (Mobile or Multi-access Edge Compute), can fundamentally change robotics. With massive and low-latency connectivity, robots can offload their computing and intelligence to edge servers that have much greater capacity and scalability.

AI AND ROBOTICS REDEFINING THE CULINARY EXPERIENCE

Moley is a pair of robotic arms powered with tactile sensors that come with an elaborate crew: an electric stove, an oven, a hob, and a touchscreen unit. A 3D camera and a wired glove integrated into the unit captures the actions of a human to store it in the database.

Robots or Cobots: Which to Choose?

Today's plant managers are faced with a dearth of automation technologies but it's not always obvious what will work best. There is rarely, if ever, a one-size-fits-all approach.

What is Machine Vision?

Machine vision is used in a variety of industrial processes, such as material inspection, object recognition, pattern recognition, electronic component analysis, along with the recognition of signatures, optical characters, and currency.

Robotic Automation is Reshaping The Future of Mobile Apps

Some new technologies helped the evolution of mobile apps towards automation. It all started with the advanced data analytics engines and APIs incorporated by enterprise app developers to address user needs more precisely and contextually.

Industrial Robots market slows in 2019 but long-term forecast is positive - Interact Analysis

New market research from Interact Analysis reveals that the growth of industrial robot revenues slowed in 2019, but is forecast to pick up again towards late 2020 and accelerate in 2021. -Automotive and smartphone production declines played a significant part in 2019 slowdown -New applications, lower prices and wider use cases will lead to a significant upturn by 2023 -China shows its strength, both domestically and in

AI PERFECTING THE ART OF PERFUME MAKING

In a move to accelerate their perfume development, 124-year-old Swiss flavor and fragrance giant Givaudan launched an AI program, Carto, which optimizes their production by making perfume recommendations based on a chart that details the individual properties of different fragrances.

Machine Automation Taken to the Next Level

Around 20 million cutter blades for hair clippers and beard trimmers leave the Philips plant at Klagenfurt every year. In order to make the complex grinding process as efficient as possible, the company has opted for a pioneering automation concept, where the loading of the machine and the delivery of the parts is fully automated.

How Are Robots Tested for Harsh Conditions?

Advanced robots can spare human workers from dangerous or life-threatening conditions and environments - like the intricate underwater terrain of a search-and-rescue mission or extreme pressures faced by oil and gas workers. Robots aren't invincible, however, and they need to be carefully designed to handle these extreme conditions. Here are some of the extreme environments that robots face - and how designers test them

Packaging the Future

Automating packaging processes can improve productivity, quality and safety on site. Unsurprisingly then, it has become a crucial investment for packaging facilities.

Wireless Charging to Bring 'True Autonomy' to Mobility Era in Robotics

Imagine a factory floor with fast wireless charging pads or stations that doesn't require a human operator to make a physical connection and placed strategically around a facility to enable maximum uptime.

Robotics Industry Set for Seismic Change as Growth Shifts from Fixed Automation to Mobile Systems in Enterprise

By 2022, the burgeoning mobile robotics space will start to overtake the traditional industrial robotics market. Currently, mobile autonomy is concentrated in material handling within the supply chain, but mobile robots are set to touch every sector of the global economy for a wide range of use-cases.

3 HR Headaches Robotics Can Solve

Not only can robots easily assist with large payloads and separate people from traditionally dirty tasks, but they also take mundane duties off of workers' plates, such as fastening.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
