From the Rex Kickstarter : Why do you want Rex? There are two general classes of electronics used in robot hardware: microcontrollers (ex. Arduino) and single-board computers. Microcontrollers are great for projects that only require a single program to be run, quickly and without overhead, like controlling LEDs and motors. Single-board computers are great for anything you'd need a cheap, small computer for - like networking applications and image processing. Advanced autonomous robots require the strengths of both. A system developed around Rex, being made specifically for robots, brings it all together in one nice little package in a way that has never been done before. Hardware Specs: Texas Instruments DM3730 1GHz 32-bit ARM Cortex-A8 Processor core 800MHz DSP core 512MB LPDDR RAM USB Host port MicroSD slot Camera Module port 3.5mm Audio-in jack 3.5mm Audio-out jack 5V DC input for desktop development Each Rex will come pre-installed with Alphalem OS, a FOSS custom linux distribution. It includes a core set of built-in device drivers - ones that we've hand-picked as being the most useful for robots (like USB WiFi adapters and cameras). We'll publish the list in a wiki on our website. Here are the other main features: An Arduino-style programming environment with support for multiple programming languages (C, C++, Python). A special task manager called the Master Control Program (MCP). An API for message passing in multi-process applications. A standard Linux filesystem which will allow you to install just about any Linux software that can be cross-compiled for ARM. Libraries for common processes such as I2C communication, face detection, and sensor reading.
A leading voice in the industry of unmanned systems, Michael Toscano, president and CEO of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), will be among the featured guest speakers at the Academy of Model Aeronautics EXPO, January 10-12, 2014, at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario CA. Toscano will present "The State of the Industry" and will also participate in a panel discussion with James Williams, manager of the FAA's Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration Office, and Rich Hanson, AMA government and regulatory affairs representative.

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.
