UCSD's Switchblade Robot

Introducing Coordinated Robotics Lab of University of California San Diego's Switchblade robot . The treads provide traction over a variety of terrain, but Switchblade has some another trick up its sleeve, each tread assembly can pivot relative to the central chassis. We can use this ability to change the center of mass and climb over obstacles. Using internal sensors, we can also balance on the end of the treads and stand upright. Video from the onboard camera is streamed to a remote computer for teleoperation. The control system is robust to external disturbances and the robot will return to its original position if knocked out of the way.

AMT's Safety and Risk Assessment Expert Introduces New ANIS RIA R15.06 Robot System Safety Standard at Industry Conference

Vision-guided laser beaming powers remote vehicles

To power a UAV in-flight, LaserMotive has developed a system to transmit laser light from a ground station to a photovoltaic receiver on a UAV. Reflected light from the UAV is then captured and used to monitor its position and dynamically control the laser to deliver the power to the correct position

Motoman Robotics and Universal Robotics Introduce New 3D Vision Solution for Box Moving Applications

Used in box moving applications, MotoSight 3D Spatial Vision locates randomly positioned boxes ranging in size from 6 to 48 inches at rates up to 12 boxes per minute.

Cheap camera captures pictures of crops

Traditionally, near-infrared (NIR) images of vegetation have been acquired from large-format cameras that are carried on manned aircraft. But due to their size and weight, it is infeasible to mount such imagers on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

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.
