Robot companions are just what the doctor ordered

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."

How Motion Control Puts the Robo in Robotics

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.

The Hydroponic, Robotic Future of Farming in Greenhouses

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.

Drones in the Wind Industry

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.

RoboticsTomorrow.com - Q&A with Bionik Laboratories

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.

Keio University Research: Innovative touch sensitive avatar-robotic arm based on real time haptics

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.

IRobot's Colin Angle on the Home Run of Robotics (It's Not A.I.)

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."

Tracking rogue drones with DJI's new Aeroscope system

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.

Robotic Solutions in the Supply Chain

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.

Where Should the Robot Controller Go?

You can save yourself surprises by planning robot controller mounting and wireway routing ahead with your selected robot integrator's project team.

Boston Dynamics CEO: 'Robotics will be bigger than the Internet'

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,"

BitFlow Identifies Five Machine Vision Trends for 2018

BitFlow, Inc., a manufacturer of frame grabbers for machine vision cameras, annually gives its top five industry trends for the upcoming year.

The Intelligent Prosthetic Leg

Hiking, going cycling with friends. With the right prosthetic leg, amputees can once again lead an active life. Ottobock and maxon motor are helping to improve the quality of their lives.

Interview with Bruce Welty, co-founder of Locus Robotics

My view is that companies (1) start with a problem that is suited to be solved by a robotic solution, then (2) design and build a robot that solves that problem and finally (3) build a business model that makes the robot the best economic solution to the problem.

Humanoid robot market to double by 2023, industrial robotics to hit $72B

Alison DeNisco Rayome for TechRepublic: By 2023, we will see an increasing use of humanoid robots for education, as well as in the retail industry, to better personalize customer support.
