Getting Started with Collaborative Robots - Part 2 - How to Identify Potential Processes for Automation
At this point, we need to discuss the strengths and limitations of process automation with collaborative robots.

Using the ROS Navigation suite from the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF), we highlight a solution employing the Rhoeby Dynamics R2D LiDAR, a low-cost LiDAR device
Medical device manufacturer Tegra Medical faced profit erosion as costs went up and customers demanded price cuts. Deploying three collaborative robot arms from Universal Robots to tend the machines manufacturingmedical instruments doubled throughput, freed up 11 full time positions and enabled the manufacturer to keep up with customer demand while keeping costs down.
My research involves developing techniques to 3D print electric motors and electronics. This goes beyond the usual 3D printed structures - structures don't do anything. To do things, we need motors and electronics to control those motors.
The first-of-its-kind solution consists of a standard commercially available robot, composite deposition end-effector hardware and a comprehensive software suite.
There is research going on at the University of New South Wales in Australia, to determine the behavior of humans, as they interact with Geminoids-the name given these life-like robots because of their similarity to humans. The next step is to study whether a human being can get used to interacting with Geminoids.
DARPA's FLA program aims to create unmanned nano robot like insects & birds that can go into buildings & perform key activities that will not be possible by Humans.
One of the technology breakthroughs of Alpha 2 is the servo technology that was designed specifically for this robot. The servos are miniaturized while providing maximum torque giving Alpha 2 the dexterity and range of movements currently only seen in robots costing 20K or more.
The new metric (PUAV) is a way to compare solar technologies specifically for UAV applications.
Driverless and Zero Emsision are REALITY by 2020.
Here are a few projects we think are worth looking into. Be careful... it is crowdfunding.
SkyTech 2016 is a two-day B2B tradeshow for the commercial UAV industry. In 2016 SkyTech will incorporate an exhibition, three conferences, workshops, product launches, live demonstrations and marketing opportunities for the commercial UAV community.
By being able to design diffusers in 3D and print them, we streamline the prototyping process tremendously. We can do virtual simulations with the 3D models to get a sense of the effectiveness, and we can make aesthetic or functional changes before it's printed.

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
