The 35mm x 35mm, ARM-based ANTS device allows engineers to easily program specific, embedded functionality into a device, system or remote application
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.

Sinema Server software from Siemens shortens troubleshooting and response times by quickly and easily identifying problems in Industrial Ethernet networks and connected terminal devices.
STMicroelectronics Shows Unique Metal Alloys Improving Cameraphone pictures and Other Innovative Solutions for Comprehensive Mobile Experience
During MWC, ST will reveal a new approach to deliver OIS to mobile phones. OIS uses feedback from motion sensors embedded in the mobile device to control the mechanical actuator that compensates for slight movements of the user's hand, resulting in sharper images even in low-light conditions. The new technology uses actuators made of Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) that offer the unique ability to contract upon heating.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
