With this new application in mobile robotics, the company plans to use its Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) technology combined with deep learning and to pioneer in a new generation of robots.
Loomo can follow the rider autonomously as a robot sidekick, and also has a playful personality. Loomo also comes with a free Android-based SDK for professional developers and enthusiasts alike to build on top of Segway's mobility + AI platform.
Hydro-Qu©bec has developed a robot to inspect transmission line conductor bundles. This world first is a product of the inspection and maintenance robotics team that works out of the company's research centre, IREQ.
World's First Self-driving, Commercial-class Snow Clearing Robot from Left Hand Robotics Operating at Pilot Customer Locations Across North America
The SnowBot Pro is a self-driving, GPS-navigated robot that clears walks more efficiently than shovelers -- dramatically reducing labor costs for snow management operators. The Left Hand Robotics team's deep expertise spans software, automation and robotics, and in 2018 the
"We are demonstrating that it is possible to have a much better customer experience when robots and humans work together," says Sam Blum, Community Manager at Cafe X.
Can a robot have a better bedside manner than a doctor? Perhaps. But a humanoid robot packed with the latest technology can certainly spend more time with a child in the hospital, become his or her confidant and utilize technological abilities that exceed humans.
Faye Flam for Bloomberg View: And in terms of gathering data, we can't catch up to the robots, which have in recent years been plunging beneath Jupiter's thick cloud cover and exploring the exotic moons of Saturn with their methane lakes and roiling ice geysers.
An index-based ETF that provides exposure to companies engaged in artificial intelligence, robotics and automation.
Constantine Samaras and Joshuah Stolaroff for Smithsonian: Reducing the need for trucking by delivering some packages with electric drones could save fuel, and potentially carbon emissions. But how much?
Laboratory News: For artificial systems to behave anything like living systems we need to fundamentally rethink the standard view of what behaviour is all about says Dr Rupert Young
Mike Murphy for MarketWatch: Boston Dynamics showed off its latest advanced robot Monday, which left some people wondering if it was a technological marvel or dystopian nightmare fuel.
Daniel Hurst for The Guardian: Japanese government wants to increase acceptance of technology that could help fill the gap in the nursing workforce
Mariella Moon for EnGadget: While the team's UAVs are scanning the skies, their tactical plane will focus on what's happening down below. The plane is equipped with high-resolution CCTVs with facial recognition
Katie Fehrenbacher for GreenTechMedia: For drone makers, that means a drone could fly farther and longer on a single charge. For example, a drone surveying acres of crop land could fly for an hour instead of just 20 minutes with a standard battery.
David K. Williams for Forbes: The result: production has moved from one machine every 4-6 weeks to an average of 5 machines per month for a total of 130 worldwide and predominance in its sector, with pre-orders booked through June 2018.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface
With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
