Alison DeNisco Rayome for TechRepublic: By 2023, we will see an increasing use of humanoid robots for education, as well as in the retail industry, to better personalize customer support.
Sandra Erwin for Space News: DARPA pioneered the concept of using robots for in-space repairs and more recently invested millions of dollars in a public-private partnership with Space Systems Loral to build an autonomous vehicle for servicing satellites 36,000 kilometers above Earth.
The importance of robotics for Europe's regions will be the focus of a week-long celebration of robotics taking place around Europe on 17-27 November 2017
Tim Johnson for McClatchy DC: "It's very reasonable to believe that by the end of next year, we'd have a couple of hundred of these out."
The humanoid robot, Sophia, told the audience at the Future Investment Initiative summit how honoured she was being made a Saudi citizen. „Thank you to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," Sophia said, „I am very honoured and proud of this unique distinction."
James Vincent for The Verge: The retailing giant says the robots' introduction won't lead to job losses, and that the company wants to save employees from carrying out tasks that are "repeatable, predictable, and manual."
Ben Wolff, CEO of Sarcos via IEEE Spectrum:
Matt Simon for Wired: The United States has a serious problem with getting women into STEM jobs and keeping them there.
Matt Simon for Wired: Give it coordinates, tell it what size the hole should be, hit enter, and it tears off and digs the thing with impressive accuracy.
Matt McFarland for CNN Money: Google, a company that's built everything from a search engine to a self-driving car, will now try its hand at a city neighborhood.
Tim Sandle for Digital Journal: A newly created robotic gripper has researchers at University of California - San Diego excited. The 'friendly' new robot could help advance the automation of construction and building works.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The process begins on a robotic assembly line in a centralized kitchen, but pizzas finish cooking in ovens inside of trucks en route to delivery.
Amit Katwala for IMECHE: The new model will incorporate internet connectivity and have the ability to control domestic appliances with voice commands, like the Amazon Echo or Google Home devices, but will also behave and move like a real dog.
Guanhong Hu for Quartz: Shuhei Miyashita and his team used the origami concept to make exoskeletons for a magnetic cube robot, called "Primer", letting it morph on demand to do various things in different conditions.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The biomechanics of bipedal walking are preposterously complex. A French firm claims to have built a robotic suit that can emulate the way we walk.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent
• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
