How a "Wild Idea" About LiDAR Transformed the Aerial Mapping Industry

In 2012, Phoenix LiDAR CEO Grayson Omans had the revolutionary idea to mount a Velodyne LiDAR sensor on a UAV-and he transformed the aerial mapping industry in the process.

Is Drone Delivery Good for the Environment?

Constantine Samaras and Joshuah Stolaroff for Smithsonian: Reducing the need for trucking by delivering some packages with electric drones could save fuel, and potentially carbon emissions. But how much?

Why robotics needs a radical reboot

Laboratory News: For artificial systems to behave anything like living systems we need to fundamentally rethink the standard view of what behaviour is all about says Dr Rupert Young

Autonomous Trucks Will be Rolling on the Highway

The future of autonomous trucks is already here. Several states are laying the groundwork for these self-driving behemoths. California, Florida, Michigan and Utah have passed laws allowing autonomous trucks to drive in platoons.

Artificial Intelligence in the Factory

Because kinetic mesh is a mobile network, radios can go on any fixed or mobile asset on a manufacturing floor and still provide constant communications.

This four-legged robot can open doors and we're all doomed

Mike Murphy for MarketWatch: Boston Dynamics showed off its latest advanced robot Monday, which left some people wondering if it was a technological marvel or dystopian nightmare fuel.

Why Being Innovative With Automation Should Be a Priority for Your Company

Just automating existing processes may not be enough to stay competitive in international markets. What's needed is a complete rethink of what happens now, coupled with the imaginative application of emerging robotic innovations.

Robotics Advanced Research Alliance - Universities and Corporations

The project -which incorporates machine learning, teleoperation, and human-robot collaboration-- demonstrates what happens when you combine AUBO Robotics' commitment to building symbiotic alliances among researchers and research institutions with robotics specialists

The Tale of the Painting Robot that didn't Steal Anyone's Job

Matt Simon for Wired: Today, three of these machines from Universal Robots handle the brute sanding and painting, while humans handle more complicated tasks like assembly. Some of these workers even turned into robot technicians.

Japan lays groundwork for boom in robot carers

Daniel Hurst for The Guardian: Japanese government wants to increase acceptance of technology that could help fill the gap in the nursing workforce

Danish "Robot Hands" Pack Delicate Herbs

The two "fingers" of the robot gripper have built-in intelligence and advanced technology that mimics the way humans instinctively use our sense of touch when we grab things to move them.

Five Myths About Robotic Vision Systems

While the vision systems of old were unreliable, clunky and expensive, todays systems are anything but. Proper vision systems can make the difference between an efficient robotic system and one that is not working optimally.

Drone catchers and face-detecting planes will guard the Olympics

Mariella Moon for EnGadget: While the team's UAVs are scanning the skies, their tactical plane will focus on what's happening down below. The plane is equipped with high-resolution CCTVs with facial recognition

The Drones of CES 2018: In Company with AirSelfie, Volocopter, and PowerDolphin

As you can see, the continued growth in the creation of drones only shows the shocking improvement in the world of software and tech devices. Just like Artificial Intelligence, its another fantastic glimpse into the future!

RTOS for Safety Critical Systems

Designing the right RTOS architecture requires delicate attention and decisions. Basic real-time operating system services such as inter-process communication, process synchronization, process management and interrupt handling must unfold efficiently.

Harmonic Drive Introduces New Lightweight Versions of Select Gearhead Products.

Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces new lightweight versions of select gearhead products. The new gearheads are ideal for designs where weight is a critical factor. Building on the success of Harmonic Drive LLCs current gear units, new lightweight versions were the next logical evolution of the CS/ SH product lines. With weight reductions of 20-30% without any reduction in torque ratings, the Lightweight (LW) gear units provide exceptional torque density.
