James Vincent for The Verge: Each muscle consists of a sealed bag filled with air or fluid, containing a folding origami structure that functions as the skeleton.
Cobots, or Collaborative robots, take away some of the environmental, and spatial, dangers traditional robots may cause, allowing them to work alongside humans. Their interaction with humans is more natural, they share the same workspace, and Cobots are very easily reprogrammed.
An Oregon State University computer science professor is part of a team that will receive up to $7.1 million to develop a drone swarm infrastructure to help the U.S. military in urban combat.
Without tool changers, we have to manually detach the tool from the robot with bolts and thumbscrews, wheel the tool away on a cart, and attach a new tool the same way. This is tedious and not possible for one person to do by themselves.
Abrar Al-Heeti for CNet: "We've done tests before with a screen or even the robot on a screen, and nobody cared," Deblieck said. "But from the moment the Zora solution came in, you saw people starting to move."
Efficient motion control technology replaces the heavy, power-hungry traditional mechanical and hydraulic components with accurate, efficient electro-mechanical control systems. Within the traction, steering and braking systems of these energy-efficient cars are brushless torque motors.
Matt Simon for Wired: The company is developing machine learning algorithms that will automatically detect diseased plants and kick them out of the system before the sickness spreads. Underdeveloped plants would also get the boot.
Drone-based inspections provide cost reduction and revenue enhancement opportunities of over $600/turbine when compared to ground-based inspections. The savings value is two folds ($1200/turbine) when compared to corrective/reactionary maintenance.
Home-use assistive devices will first require a great deal of training and effort for the user. As a result, we thought the integration of the Amazon Echo would greatly assist this process, and facilitate ease of use as Echo also continues to improve.
Researchers at Keio University's Haptics Research Center have developed a 'real-time-avatar-robotic arm' that transmits sound, vision, and highly sensitive feelings of touch to remotely located users. This innovative touch sensitive robotic technology was reported in the October 2017 issue of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics and demonstrated at CEATEC (October 2017, Tokyo). The technology is expected to find applications in areas such as industrial manufacturing, harvesting farm produce, and nursing care.
Robert Buderi for Xconomy: "helping people stay in their home as they age and maintain the lifestyle advantages of living at home." And that means, he says, "We're going to need a lot of robots."
Lauren Goode for The Verge: Martino calls this box "the gizmos," but its real name is Aeroscope. It's DJI's new solution for detecting rogue drones that are flying nearby.
Following a number of successful implementations, we're starting to see robots and their human counterparts work side by side in warehouses, deliveries and at sorting centers. Logistics plays a fundamental role in the success of the manufacturing process and by using robots, we are able to evolve business models to increase productivity - and profitability.
You can save yourself surprises by planning robot controller mounting and wireway routing ahead with your selected robot integrator's project team.
Catherine Clifford for CNBC: "The Internet lets every person reach out and touch all the information in the world. But robotics lets you reach out and touch and manipulate all the stuff in the world - and so it is not just restricted to information, it is everything,"
