Matt Simon for Wired: The company is developing machine learning algorithms that will automatically detect diseased plants and kick them out of the system before the sickness spreads. Underdeveloped plants would also get the boot.
Drone-based inspections provide cost reduction and revenue enhancement opportunities of over $600/turbine when compared to ground-based inspections. The savings value is two folds ($1200/turbine) when compared to corrective/reactionary maintenance.
Home-use assistive devices will first require a great deal of training and effort for the user. As a result, we thought the integration of the Amazon Echo would greatly assist this process, and facilitate ease of use as Echo also continues to improve.
Researchers at Keio Universitys Haptics Research Center have developed a 'real-time-avatar-robotic arm that transmits sound, vision, and highly sensitive feelings of touch to remotely located users. This innovative touch sensitive robotic technology was reported in the October 2017 issue of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics and demonstrated at CEATEC (October 2017, Tokyo). The technology is expected to find applications in areas such as industrial manufacturing, harvesting farm produce, and nursing care.
Robert Buderi for Xconomy: "helping people stay in their home as they age and maintain the lifestyle advantages of living at home." And that means, he says, "Were going to need a lot of robots."
Lauren Goode for The Verge: Martino calls this box "the gizmos," but its real name is Aeroscope. Its DJIs new solution for detecting rogue drones that are flying nearby.
Following a number of successful implementations, were starting to see robots and their human counterparts work side by side in warehouses, deliveries and at sorting centers. Logistics plays a fundamental role in the success of the manufacturing process and by using robots, we are able to evolve business models to increase productivity - and profitability.
You can save yourself surprises by planning robot controller mounting and wireway routing ahead with your selected robot integrators project team.
Catherine Clifford for CNBC: "The Internet lets every person reach out and touch all the information in the world. But robotics lets you reach out and touch and manipulate all the stuff in the world - and so it is not just restricted to information, it is everything,"
BitFlow, Inc., a manufacturer of frame grabbers for machine vision cameras, annually gives its top five industry trends for the upcoming year.
Hiking, going cycling with friends. With the right prosthetic leg, amputees can once again lead an active life. Ottobock and maxon motor are helping to improve the quality of their lives.
My view is that companies (1) start with a problem that is suited to be solved by a robotic solution, then (2) design and build a robot that solves that problem and finally (3) build a business model that makes the robot the best economic solution to the problem.
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.
Embedded vision solution with USB 3.0 board-level camera.
