Upon detecting a force that results in damage to one of its extremities, the machine immediately begins coordinating the movements of the remaining parts, allowing it to continue operating despite the injury sustained.
Micah Kaats for BIEN: The researchers suggest that basic income may ease the strains of job displacement, provide support for individuals engaged in volunteer or social enterprises, and encourage entrepreneurial risk-taking.
Guy Cherni, Opinion Contributor for The Hill: Surprising though it may seem, the key for increasing drone-based value can only come through increased restriction and regulation of the industry.
"Good morning, I would like you to meet your legal team." Artificial intelligence has proven useful in scanning and predicting what documents will be relevant to a particular case.
Michael Belfiore for Bloomberg: Makr Shakr's robotic arms pull cocktail ingredients selected via touchscreen or app from a network of bottles above the bar.
2017 - Most Popular Article - To achieve the highest performance, the stepper motor can be treated as a 2 phase brushless servo motor. Current to the motor will then be controlled as a function of the error signal just as with standard servo motors.
The Economist: "Slaughterbots" is fiction. The question Dr Russell poses is, "how long will it remain so?" For military laboratories around the planet are busy developing small, autonomous robots for use in warfare, both conventional and unconventional.
David Z. Morris for Fortune: Mountain View-based Knightscope has said in a statement that the robot "was not brought in to clear the area around the San Francisco SPCA of homeless individuals," but only to "serve and protect the SPCA."
Shelby Rogers for Interesting Engineering: Each robot has its own functions, and all of them have names reminiscent of Star Wars droids.
Vecna Robotics, a leader in intelligent, next-generation, robotic material handling autonomous ground vehicles (AGVs), was awarded first place in the DHL & Dell Robotics Mobile Picking Challenge 2017. The event was held last week at the DHL Innovation Center in Troisdorf, Ge
There Is no experience like CES with the largest global gathering of innovation and the connected future of technology with 4,000 exhibiting companies-600 of which are new.
Carolyn Said and Benny Evangelista for the SF Chronicle: San Francisco's ordinance resembles laws enacted in the early days of "horseless carriages" that required a person to walk in front of a car waving a red flag, said Bob Doyle, spokesman for A3.
Patrick Caughill for Futurism: The feature would use the onboard computing system to analyze conditions to determine the best course of action.
Robots as inconspicuous as they are ubiquitous represent the vision of researchers in the new and burgeoning field of material robotics.
Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Its first product is a sensor-laden suit that a person can wear to demonstrate actions so that a robot can then replicate what they do.

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
