How Unmanned Underwater Vehicles Could Become Easier to Detect - new research from Draper, MIT

Researchers have developed a passive acoustic remote sensing method for unmanned underwater vehicles, which was demonstrated in Charles River field experiments, pictured here.

American Robotics Becomes First Company Approved by the FAA To Operate Automated Drones Without Human Operators On-Site

A seminal milestone in the drone industry, American Robotics now meets the safety requirements needed to make drones scalable for widespread commercial use.

Talking to Machines - New Operating Concepts With Artificial Intelligence

A simple request, a short sentence, for the human brain to interpret what is meant, make the connection and initiate an appropriate reaction is easy. For a machine this is much more complicated. To control technical devices with speech requires many individual steps.

Cybathlon: A Success for the Maxon Teams

The CYBATHLON 2020 Global Edition is history. Due to the Covid-​19 pandemic, the teams had to compete in different time zones and locations. And out of the 50 teams participating, one in four teams were using maxon products.

Examples of Rescue Robotics Changing Emergency Response Times

Robots have worked in emergency services for decades, and they're only becoming more prevalent. Here are some leading examples of these machines improving first responders' response times.

Ways to Optimize Manufacturing Cybersecurity

Manufacturing facilities are at an increasingly high risk of cyberattacks, especially as they feature more connected, advanced machines that play vital roles in operations.

Triad of Torque, Speed and Precision. Applications? Step Into the Ring.

Many applications require drive solutions that have a central opening through which parts of the application can be guided. Examples of this can be found in optics and photonics for laser steering systems or in automation and robotics for semiconductor handling systems.

Readers Choice 2020: Smarter Robotics Are Changing Security

While robots already play a prominent role in logistics and manufacturing, industry leaders are just beginning to realize the potential of this technology in security measures.

Readers Choice 2020: How Robots Are Changing On-Site Construction

The introduction of construction robotics may prove to be a tipping point for this industry. How are robots changing on-site construction today, and where can we expect to see them in the future?

Challenges of Developing a Safety System for an Autonomous Work Site

There are many safety standards - most have been developed in the age of the fixed autonomous robot - behind a cage - in a factory, for example. Today, these robots are moving.

Using Robots For Inspection, Maintenance, And Repairs

Several global organizations are already developing more and more uses for robots for inspection, maintenance, and repairs. Let's look at some reasons why robotic units are more popular now

Better Data equals Better Navigation

To achieve navigation accuracy, sensors use algorithms that look at a series of measurements (as opposed to a single measurement) and generate output numbers that compensate for measurement errors. These algorithms are known as sensor fusion algorithms or Kalman filtering.

How Top Modules Make AMRs Possible

An AMR without a top module is like a robotic arm without an end-effector tool such as a gripper-it lacks functionality. The benefits of AMRs are only realized-and maximized-with top modules and high-quality gates and carts that transfer the transported materials.
