The goal of the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) is to generate groundbreaking research and development so that future robotics can perform the most hazardous activities in future disaster response operations, in tandem with their human counterparts, in order to reduce casualties, avoid further destruction, and save lives. Disaster response robots require multiple layers of software to explore and interact with their environments, use tools, maintain balance and communicate with human operators. In the Virtual Robotics Challenge (VRC), competing teams applied software of their own design to a simulated robot in an attempt to complete a series of tasks that are prerequisites for more complex activities. Twenty-six teams from eight countries qualified to compete in the VRC, which ran from June 17-21, 2013. DARPA had allocated resources for the six teams that did best, but in an interesting twist, good sportsmanship and generosity will allow members of the top nine teams, listed below, to move forward: Team IHMC, Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, Pensacola, Fla. (52 points) WPI Robotics Engineering C Squad (WRECS), Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, Mass. (39 points) MIT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Mass. (34 points) Team TRACLabs, TRACLabs, Inc., Webster, Texas (30 points) JPL / UCSB / Caltech, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. (29 points) TORC, TORC / TU Darmstadt / Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Va. (27 points) Team K, Japan (25 points) TROOPER, Lockheed Martin, Cherry Hill, N.J. (24 points) Case Western University, Cleveland, Ohio (23 points)
TopCoder®, Inc., the world's largest competitive Community of nearly 500,000 digital creators, today announced registration has opened for an algorithm competition from Zero Robotics which seeks computationally efficient code solutions to control a satellite in space.
The latest release of the PlantPAx process automation system from Rockwell Automation allows companies across multiple industries to improve operator effectiveness with automated procedures, enhanced visualization and new skid-integration capabilities.
EVT introduces GWI Glass Wafer Inspection System to detect defects in glass wafers early in the production cycle. The system is based on a high resolution smart camera, which captures the image from the glass wafer. To meet the required accuracy in defect detection, a 5 MPixel sensor was selected. For higher requirements, sensors with higher resolutions are available.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface
With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
