The Drones of CES 2018: In Company with AirSelfie, Volocopter, and PowerDolphin

As you can see, the continued growth in the creation of drones only shows the shocking improvement in the world of software and tech devices. Just like Artificial Intelligence, it's another fantastic glimpse into the future!

RTOS for Safety Critical Systems

Designing the right RTOS architecture requires delicate attention and decisions. Basic real-time operating system services such as inter-process communication, process synchronization, process management and interrupt handling must unfold efficiently.

Machine Vision Technology Update

Machine vision technologies based on CNNs and deep learning can be used profitably in a wide range of different industrial sectors and applications, allowing the automation and significant acceleration of inspection processes in the electronics industry, for example.

These Robots Crawl Into Every Nook and Cranny

The latest addition is a small crawler robot that magnetically "sticks" to metal walls and is able to move in all directions. It carries cameras, sensors and tools for inspection or maintenance work in tight pipes and on the outer hulls of tanks or ships.

Robotics and Automation Transformation Omni-channel and Supply Chain

Decades of supply chain implementation translates to a strategic partnership in designing, implementing, and maintaining complex end-to-end supply chain enterprise solutions from transportation, labor, warehousing, and supply chain visibility.

What is a Botnet?

A bot herder, is an individual who controls and maintains a botnet by installing malicious software in many computers, placing these devices under his/her control. These "herds" of bot machines, also called zombies, can then be used to attack or infect other computers.

The Future of Service Robots

There has been a lot of investment by retailers in recent years to achieve a true omni-channel fulfillment strategy. Robots are enabling companies to improve the fulfillment process both in the warehouse and will soon be doing so in the retail store.

Meet the Robots Taking Over a Tokyo Airport for the 2020 Olympics

The majority of incoming tourists will first encounter robots in the Tokyo Airport. At the time of this writing, there are seven different robots stationed at the airport. Each one features a unique and friendly archetype

How to Design a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS)

Real-time operating systems rely on kernel designs to expedite process communication and synchronization functionalities.

Industrial Robots: Encoders for Tool Center Point Accuracy

The use of secondary encoders on all of a robot's axes, as well as the use of linear encoders for positioning the robot relative to the workpiece, enables a level of accuracy at the tool center point

Autonomous Underground Mining Vehicles Are a Thing Now

Depending on how tests of below-ground and above-ground equipment progress, multiple technologies could be incorporated into single vehicles to make them maximally adaptable to operator needs.

Mobile Robotics: Thinking in Terms of Fleet Productivity Is Key to Success

In this article, we will explore the basis and the future implications of this major transition. We will focus on two applications in particular: agriculture and last mile delivery.

The Delivery Robots are Coming!

When people look up at the sky, they see more and more drones. Yet the breakthrough for delivery robots will take place on the ground - if the lawmakers give the green light.

University of Virginia Maps Historic Tunnel Using Jackal UGV

The team was able to easily visualize and monitor collected data as they were conducting the survey. As one team member tele-operated the Jackal, another member connected wirelessly via SSH to the robot to visualize the data in RViz on a laptop.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
