Robotic sight and machine vision systems can help our automata pick up on visual cues that we humans would probably miss or ignore, and they can deliver considerable value to companies that adopt them. Here's a look at where the technology has been and where it's headed.
From Boston Dynamics: Atlas uses its whole body -- legs, arms, torso -- to perform a sequence of dynamic maneuvers that form a gymnastic routine. We created the maneuvers using new techniques that streamline the development process.
Traditionally, robots have been purchased as capital equipment and used to automate a part of the workflow. Recently, companies have been exploring the idea of hiring robot workers similar to the way people are hired: as contractors.
While many Baby Boomers pursued trade or vocational jobs, Millennials and Gen Xers were encouraged to attend college and apply for white-collar jobs.
If robots are to solve the labor shortage in US manufacturing, then they will need to significantly expand the type of tasks that they can carry out.
What are the differences between these two CNC and robotics systems? What are their characteristics and how do you determine which one is best suited to the needs of your industry?
A threat to jobs, a health and safety risk and a technological nightmare. Despite these common protests against robotic technology, demand is growing, creating a new challenge for robot component suppliers.
Innovation Stage Q&A with SICK Inc. - To explore the impact of I4.0 and sensors in automated pharmaceutical manufacturing, we spoke with Ron Stuver, director of business consulting at SICK, Inc. (Booth LS-6419), a leading provider of manufacturing sensors.
ISO 15066 is the emerging standard for collaborative robotics and covers all aspects of robot safety. The ISO15066 definition of a collaborative workspace is the operating space where the robot system and a human can perform tasks concurrently.
Harmonic Drive is well-known for our zero-backlash strain wave gear products. Many machine designers and builders don't realize that we also manufacture Planetary gears. Booth #LS6068
Packaging Professionals Address Innovation Stage Topics set for PACK EXPO Las Vegas. By: Sean Riley, senior director, media and industry communications, PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies
We are developing a general purpose, robotic control software platform that allows the user to use semantic commands, in a simulated VR environment.
Three-quarters of total robot sales are currently attributed to just five countries - China, the Republic of Korea, Japan, the United States and Germany.
Whether you're looking to maximize shelf impact, create a more e-commerce friendly package, increase sustainability, functionality or achieve other product differentiations, you'll find the packaging solutions you want at PACK Expo.
Various technologies are available on the market for bringing an automated guided vehicle (AGV) to its destination. Let us first of all say: many roads lead to Rome. There is no right way and no wrong way.
