PIWARS - MIKE HORNE'S WORLD OF RASPBERRY PI ROBOTICS

Robotics competitions have evolved from the time I participated in them during my college days. Thanks to microboards such as the Raspberry Pi, it's much more accessible - it could quite literally be described as 'child's play'. Mike Horne, the organizer of PiWars and co-organiser of CamJam, alongside his friend Tim Richardson, has taken his close connection to the Raspberry Pi project to inspire tech fans and hackers of all ages. PiWars is unique- it's not just about knocking over your combatant's robot, or following the terrain, it's about the entire learning and development process.I was lucky enough to get to talk to Michael about PiWars, robotics and the immense popularity of Raspberry Pi.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
