Self-healing Circuits

We have created electronic circuitry that is soft and stretchable and capable of spontaneously reforming electrical connections when the material is cut, torn, or punctured. It is made of microscopic droplets of liquid metal that are suspended in a soft silicone rubber.

Case Study: Epson Robots at Taylor Guitars

The main feature that I like is just that it has kept the precision and repeatability over the last 5 years and we havent had to worry, we havent had to replace any parts. We have done virtually no maintenance what-so-ever.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute Professor Developing Origami-Inspired Robots

Professor Cagdas Onal receives $500,000 grant for robots that combine soft and rigid properties; Robots can help in disaster zones or assist those physically challenged with everyday tasks

How Sensors are Moving Materials Handling Towards Safe Automation

Affordable, highly accurate and extremely reliable sensing systems and controls are fueling the rise of AGV solutions for a wide range of material handling applications in warehouses, factories and industrial facilities.

Making Offshore Oil Rigs Safer with Robotics and Automation

Automation of the oil and gas industry has been slow, but we seem to be standing on the brink of a revolution in this niche. All eyes are now turned to the first fully automated robot starting its work in the North Sea and heralding a major change.

Automation of Internal Transportation

What Every Business Owner Needs to Know About the Technology Behind Autonomous Mobile Robots

Remote Manipulation with the Wing Control Device

The Wing can be moved about on a work surface like with a normal mouse, but additionally, the upper body can be pitched, rolled and moved vertically relative to the lower body. The yaw bar, positioned between the upper and lower bodies can also be twisted.

How Drones Can Change the Way we Drive

One of the major ways in which drones may change the way we drive and travel is by helping first responders to clear road collisions much more quickly and efficiently.

Neuroscientists Create Prosthetics to Help Amputees Feel Again

The most recent prosthetics can stimulate the nerves so that when a person comes in contact with something, they feel sensation with help from electrical impulses.

Robots Double Worldwide by 2020 - IFR Survey

Nearly 70 percent of employees believe that robotics and automation offer the opportunity to qualify for higher skilled work. This is the result of a worldwide automatica survey of 7,000 employees in seven countries.

Carnegie Mellon Designs Low-cost, High-Efficiency 3D Bioprinter

We have already made exciting advances to date, with the ability to print biological materials and cells with unprecedented resolution and fidelity. Put simply, we can do more than print something that looks cool-we can 3D print tissues that actually work.

Removing the Roadblocks of Machine to Machine Communication in Manufacturing

Solving the challenge of data interoperability exists for the IT function in many situations. For the connected factory this means enabling the flow of information between machines, which in the past has been easier said than done.

This New Kind of Robot Mimics Octopus to Change From Rigid to Soft

If robots are capable of rapidly adjusting their dampness, stiffing and dynamics, like octopi are, the added flexibility can make for more versatile robotics than ever.

Safe Cut

Safety gate system and safe interlocking for a core cutter. Where axles rotate, masses are in motion and cutting tools are in action, there is always the question of safety for man and machine.

RIA to Present Gudrun Litzenberger and Esben Østergaard with Engelberger Robotics Awards
