Point Grey, a world-leading designer and manufacturer of digital cameras for industrial, scientific, and traffic applications, today announced the addition of new 5 megapixel models to its Flea®3 GigE Vision digital camera line.
Global Industrial Robotics Market to Reach 204 Thousand Units by 2017, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.
GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on the Industrial Robotics market. World market for Industrial Robotics is projected to reach 204 thousand units by the year 2017, driven primarily by strong growth opportunities in developing countries in Asia-Pacific, especially China. The low robot density in most industrial sectors in developing countries offers strong potential for growth. Also poised to drive future growth is increasing market penetration in non-conventional industries, such as, cosmetics, food and beverage, rubber and plastics, among others.

Advanced Motion Controls announces the release of EtherCAT® servo drives and new 'DxM' (Demultiplexed Motion) technology
As part of our highly successful Z-Drives platform of plug-in servo drives, ADVANCED Motion Controls is proud to formally release powerful DZE & DZS series of servo drives for EtherCAT enabled control networks but with package size that can easily fit in the palm of your hand. These products not only provide precise motion but also at reduced cost when applied in a multiple networked axes system.
Achu Wilson is building a personal robot called Chippu. Using Julian, a special version of Julius Speech Recognition Library , he was able to recognize and execute voice commands. He details the process of getting the library working with ROS in his blog post here.
VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the latest VIA COMe-8X90 module, featuring a 1.2GHz VIA NanoTM X2 E-Series dual core processor and the VIA VX900H media system processor (MSP).
The main new features since the latest stable 1.2 release are a new generalized IO functionality and file format for octrees, support for per-voxel color information in a specialized tree class (e.g. from the Kinect) and full support for Linux, Mac OS and Windows (the latter still experimental). The API remained mostly unchanged.

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
