The primary uses for inertial sensors are platform stability and global positioning, but we are seeing increasing use as feedback in articulated limbs.
An inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a device that directly measures the three linear acceleration components and the three rotational rate components (6-DOF) of a vehicle.
The high-costs and inefficiency of last-mile delivery make it prime real estate for automation, with the autonomous delivery market looking poised for exponential growth in the coming years.
By using this unmanned technology, scientists have the rare opportunity to study the effects of the lava entering the ocean, the plume it creates and the interactions of the lava and seawater directly from the surface of the ocean.
These exhibitors will be displaying cutting-edge airframes, components, software and services as well as end-to-end solutions focused on commercial applications.
Robots in Retail Environments Pivotal to Filling Information and Automation Gaps
Rapid pace of global innovation acceleration on display across AI, AR, VR, 5G and more
Instead of attempting to produce complex robots that mimic the insect form, researchers have hijacked bugs to turn them into robots. These cyborg insects have varied uses, from spying to search-and-rescue missions.
The BionicFinWave uses its two side fins to move along. They are completely cast from silicone and do without struts or other support elements. This makes them extremely flexible and thus able to implement the fluid wave movements of their biological role models
Professor Cagdas Onal receives $500,000 grant for robots that combine soft and rigid properties; Robots can help in disaster zones or assist those physically challenged with everyday tasks
Affordable, highly accurate and extremely reliable sensing systems and controls are fueling the rise of AGV solutions for a wide range of material handling applications in warehouses, factories and industrial facilities.
The Wing can be moved about on a work surface like with a normal mouse, but additionally, the upper body can be pitched, rolled and moved vertically relative to the lower body. The yaw bar, positioned between the upper and lower bodies can also be twisted.
One of the major ways in which drones may change the way we drive and travel is by helping first responders to clear road collisions much more quickly and efficiently.
We have already made exciting advances to date, with the ability to print biological materials and cells with unprecedented resolution and fidelity. Put simply, we can do more than print something that looks cool-we can 3D print tissues that actually work.
Solving the challenge of data interoperability exists for the IT function in many situations. For the connected factory this means enabling the flow of information between machines, which in the past has been easier said than done.
