From Evan Ackerman at IEEE Spectrum: IEEE Spectrum has learned that Unbounded Robotics, a spin-off of Willow Garage that developed the UBR-1 mobile manipulator, is currently "in the process of shutting down." The UBR-1 is no longer for sale. Recently, a source (who asked not to be named) forwarded us an email from Unbounded Robotics CEO Melonee Wise. Our source received the message after requesting a quote for a UBR-1 robot: "Unfortunately Unbounded Robotics is in the process of shutting down due to issues with our Willow Garage spin off agreement that prevents us from raising series A investment. Unbounded Robotics is no longer selling the UBR-1.... ( cont'd )

Heriot-Watt University Hosts 2014 International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication
A major international symposium at Heriot-Watt University this week will be considering the future development of robots as they provide care for the elderly and infirm, conduct emergency rescue and security work in inhospitable environments, learn to work increasingly independently and react to human body language to become more effective human companions.
Robotics Alley is an initiative to spur public-private partnerships in the business, research, and development of robotics and automation systems. Leaders in Agriculture will share their insights into the present and future of robotics and autonomous systems on September 16-17, 2014, at the Robotics Alley Conference & Expo.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
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.
