As the continued e-commerce wave drives industry-wide pressure to deliver orders on time, there has been an explosion of cobot startups focused on improving the efficiency of picking and packaging boxes of mixed items.
IMTS is the North American launch pad for our new flagship line of cobots, the e-Series. With e-Series, we raise the bar for cobots, strengthening the core principles that define collaborative robots: Visit us at Booth #236861 for more.
It is only an imagination in which robots are behaving like humans and getting smarter day by day. However, the distance between imagination and reality has reduced considerably.
Contrary to sci-fi tales of robots taking over, theres an abundance of ways that robots help keep people safe. Across a variety of industries, robots are minimizing the chances of injury and death at worksites.
Bill Ibelle for News@NorthEastern: While drones and driverless cars dominate the headlines, another breakthrough-robot dexterity-is likely to have an even greater impact in both business and everyday life
Chris Preimesberger for eWeek: CA Technologies is adding collaborative robot research and development to its already-packed product dance card.
Cobots, or Collaborative robots, take away some of the environmental, and spatial, dangers traditional robots may cause, allowing them to work alongside humans. Their interaction with humans is more natural, they share the same workspace, and Cobots are very easily reprogrammed.
April Glaser for RECODE: Collaborative robots are expected to account for a third of that market.
Pradeep David for Financial Express: The government of India launched the 'Make in India initiative in 2014 to enhance skill development as well as build a strong manufacturing infrastructure
Devin Coldewey for TechCrunch: Everyone knows the robots are coming, so we should probably get to work figuring out how we can coexist. Thats the mission of Veo Robotics, which is working on a system that gives robots spatial awareness of every object in their reach.
Automate 2017 will be held from April 3rd - 6th at Chicago's McCormick Place. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
CSAIL system enables people to correct robot mistakes using brain signals. Adam Conner-Simons via MIT News: For robots to do what we want, they need to understand us. Too often, this means having to meet them halfway: teaching them the intricacies of human language, for example, or giving them explicit commands for very specific tasks. But what if we could develop robots that were a more natural extension of us and that could actually do whatever we are thinking? A team from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and Boston University is working on this problem, creating a feedback system that lets people correct robot mistakes instantly with nothing more than their brains.

Charlotte Whistlecroft for DigitalSpy: If you think you're happy with your job, Madeline Gannon will definitely make you question your life, as this woman has managed to train giant robots to do things for her. Nope, we're not joking - the founder of the Madlab Research Studio created "big, monstrous, industrial robots" and then tamed then, and she even has a nickname to prove it: The Robot Whisperer. Which is all pretty impressive, if not terrifying, stuff. Speaking at the WIRED Next Generation event in London, Madeline passed on her robot-taming skills to the audience of 12-18 year olds and shared her passion for turning 6-foot-tall factory line robots into tools any human can communicate with.

Humans and robots can now share tasks - and this new partnership is on the verge of revolutionizing the production line. Today's drivers like data-driven services, decreasing product lifetimes and the need for product differentiation are putting flexibility paramount, and no technology is better suited to meet these needs than the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot. With force feedback, collision detection technology and an intuitive, hand-guided teaching mechanism, the TM Series cobot is designed to work in immediate proximity to a human worker and is easier than ever to train on new tasks.
