"Swiss Quality, Made Locally" a Core Strategy for GĂĽdel's US marketplace
From the projects' kickstarter ($104,217 pledged of $5,000 goal): uArm is a 4-axis parallel-mechanism robot arm, inspired by the ABB PalletPack industrial robot arm IRB460. ($185 for complete black kit and a gripper) The basic design is Arduino-controlled with 4 degrees of freedom. Three servos on the base control the main movement of the arm and the mini servo on the top moves and rotates the object. The end-effector of the arm is always kept parallel to the ground. Right now we have already developed a Windows application that allows the uArm to be controlled with keyboard or mouse. With some basic controlling skills, you can use basically any input device to control it, for example, we have also used other remote controller to control the arm. With our imbedded inverse-kinematics algorithm, the uArm can be precisely controlled using coordinates. We have also written an Arduino library specifically for controlling the uArm. So if you are familiar with Arduino, you can program it directly with Arduino IDE. By calling different functions, you can easily move uArm to your desired position without doing tons of hard math... cont'd

Robot Sidekicks: With NSF Funding, Worcester Polytechnic Institute Researchers Tackle the Challenges of Putting Robots on the Shop Floor and in Our Homes
Researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) have received awards through the National Science Foundation's (NSF) National Robotics Initiative to investigate and overcome fundamental challenges involved with robots working alongside people. Dmitry Berenson will develop algorithms that will permit robots to collaborate with people on small-scale manufacturing operations. Sonia Chernova will draw on the experience of thousands of online "teachers" to learn more about how "everyday people" can teach robots to do simple tasks.

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
