FIRST® Kicks Off World's Largest Celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math for Students
This week, more than 15,000 students from around the world traveled to Houston, putting their innovation skills to the test at the annual FIRST Championship Presented by Qualcomm Incorporated, held at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Minute Maid Park and Discovery Green.
Lora Kolodny for TechCrunch: Marble is one of a handful of ventures developing ground-based robots that can navigate autonomously to a customers address. Their machines look like a large kitchen appliance crossed with a Mars rover.
ASU Now: Engineering professor to host, present at WearRAcon17 robotics conference in Phoenix.
Human-machine interaction, communication, relationships, emotional intelligence, social skills, and how robotics will have a more central role in our everyday lives, through virtual assistance in homes and buildings
Jen Judson for Defense The Army is poised to transform the ground robotics industry over the next year as it launches several competitions to define its future unmanned ground systems fleet.News:
The world's first robotic mobile phone RoBoHon, a pocket-size walking and dancing robot, started sale in last year in Japan offers a variety of services to Tourists.
We believe that this technology will allow senior people and Alzheimer's disease patients to fully experience the joy of communication.
The eighth annual National Robotics Week event will be held April 8-16, 2017. RoboWeek 2016 was awesome and 2017 promises to be even better! Activities can be small, large, and everything in between.
Joel Griffin for Security InfoWatch: The thought of using robots as guards may seem like a far-fetched notion to some, but the technology itself is already mature and starting to gain traction in the security industry.
The present wave of automation, driven by artificial intelligence (AI) - the development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence - is creating a gap between current legislation and new laws necessary for an emerging workplace reality, states a report published today by the International Bar Association Global Employment Institute (IBA GEI).
Telepresence devices create a sense of virtual reality whereby you experience the feeling of being elsewhere. The VGo robot becomes your Avatar.
How robotics and automation are helping to deliver resources and healthcare, medication, treatments, assisted living care to the elderly population-how robotics can monitor senior patients and communicate with clinicians etc.
In robotic surgical education and privileging, we led the development of a standard curriculum and testing device for surgeons learning to use the da Vinci robot. This is the Fundamentals of Robotic Surgery (FRS).
Spencer Ives for Security Systems News: The Unmanned Security Expo will have its own section of the show floor, marked by banners and different colored carpeting. The area will feature a "flying cage" that allows ground-based robots and aerial drones to display their movement capabilities. The expo currently has about 30 exhibitors, according to Sessa, with more still joining as of mid-March.
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: There may indeed be laws limiting the places in which aerial drones can be flown, but if someone sees a drone breaking one of those laws - particularly if it's from a distance - how do they know who's responsible? Drone manufacturer DJI has suggested a solution, in the form of what amounts to an "electronic license plate." The idea is that all drones would come equipped with inexpensive radio equipment that transmits both their location and a user-specific identification code.
