Acquisition of snake arm robotics manufacturer will expand jet engine repair capabilities.
The use of compact devices that run embedded software is becoming increasingly popular in industrial environments. From smart cameras and vision sensors to smart phones, tablets, and handheld devices, it is almost impossible to imagine connected and highly automated Industry 4.0 processes without these small devices.
Daniel Liberto for Investopedia: San Francisco-based Momentum Machines debuted its prototype burger-making machine in 2012, eliciting awe from tech geeks and criticism from employment activists.
Naomi Tajitsu for Reuters: Unveiling its mid-term Vision 2030 strategy plan, Honda said it would boost coordination between R&D, procurement and manufacturing to tame development costs.
Companies to Collaborate in Advancing the Development of Smart Robotics Technologies
Tolerances refinement is a well-known concept for manufacturers in the aerospace industry. This new reality has a direct impact on how they do things. To succeed reaching new market standards, an upgrading of their plants and equipment is inevitable.

Liat Clark for Wired: Driverless cars will pander to our every whim, predicts Audi's CEO, but none of that will be possible until the public trusts artificial intelligence
Pradeep David for Financial Express: The government of India launched the 'Make in India initiative in 2014 to enhance skill development as well as build a strong manufacturing infrastructure
If I make a change on a design, I have to be able to apply the changes quickly. And since we are competing against bigger, high-end eyewear manufacturers, we have to deliver the highest quality even if we do quite smaller productions.
Frame grabbers are no longer exclusively used in machine vision; they are today an essential component of dozens of industries. It is therefore important that the frame grabber manufacturer is involved in standards committees and other groups monitoring the evolution of this fast-changing technology.
Megan Harney for Business Insider: CallisonRTKL wants to transform the shell of the former mall into a delivery warehouse that's ideal for drone takeoff and delivery.
Nick Statt for The Verge: Kindred thinks the path to smarter software is by giving it a physical body
Kari Paul for MarketWatch: The robot revolution may not have replaced us yet, but automation is undoubtedly creeping its way into many careers.
By continuing to add more computing capabilities for AI on edge devices with NVIDIA Jetson, and more tools and platforms to accelerate robotics development, like Isaac and the Jetson robotics reference platforms, we can help researchers and companies build robots that are more capable, less expensive, and safer to deploy.

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
