The fledgling commercial UAV industry may be small today, but it is forecast for tremendous growth and transformation over the next five years. Industry revenues will reach $15bn by 2022, up from just $1.3bn in 2016. This includes revenues from hardware, software/analytics and drone services.
Energid's Actin toolkit facilitates the creation of many types of robots with fluid, human-like movement and skills. Actin enables these robots to do complex tasks requiring dexterous manipulation that are not easily supported by traditional control software. Actin's control software, coupled with machine vision, enables robots to dynamically avoid collisions with humans and other objects. It supports visual servoing, enabling accurate vision-based manipulation of objects in changing environments.

Sharper Shape and SkySkopes Successfully Execute First Transmission Line Cable Construction Mission using Drones
Matt Dunlevy, CEO and President of SkySkopes, said, "this use-case highlights how UAS are a safe and effective option for many applications in the utility industry beyond basic inspections."
Global commercial unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) revenues will reach $15bn in 2022, according to a new report from Interact Analysis. UAVs or drones, which are currently best known for their use by the military are finding their way into countless commercial applications the research found. The industry is predicted to grow on average by 50% per year over the next five years, reaching $15bn in 2022, up from just $1.3bn in 2016.

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
