With 'material robotics,' intelligent products won't even look like robots

Oregon State University via Science Daily: "The point here with something like a self-adjusting shoe is it no longer resembles a robot -- that's kind of the direction of ubiquity we're imagining."

UTA's Emotional Robotics Living Lab Will Research How Robots Can Be Integrated Into Homes as Companions and Caregivers

The University of Texas at Arlington has launched a new Emotional Robotics Living Lab to investigate what our future will look like with robots and how they can be integrated into the home to provide physical and emotional support.

Trucks First: Moving Goods Will Have A Larger Impact in Autonomy and Economy

The autonomy of trucking needs more governmental attention and support than personal vehicles or business and commerce will be stuck in some warehouse … somewhere.

Verizon Uses Drones During Disasters like Hurricane Harvey

We use drones to survey cell sites when our engineers are not able to safely access sites to visually survey them. In specific situations, drones can save time by surveying multiple sites during one flight and by sharing information in real time.

Soft robot muscles with origami skeletons can lift 1,000 times their own weight

James Vincent for The Verge: Each muscle consists of a sealed bag filled with air or fluid, containing a folding origami structure that functions as the skeleton.

Benefits of Collaborative Robots/Cobots!

Cobots, or Collaborative robots, take away some of the environmental, and spatial, dangers traditional robots may cause, allowing them to work alongside humans. Their interaction with humans is more natural, they share the same workspace, and Cobots are very easily reprogrammed.

OSU researcher part of DARPA grant for autonomous drone swarms

An Oregon State University computer science professor is part of a team that will receive up to $7.1 million to develop a drone swarm infrastructure to help the U.S. military in urban combat.

Case Study: ATI Tool Changers Transform Schmalz's Design-Test Center

Without tool changers, we have to manually detach the tool from the robot with bolts and thumbscrews, wheel the tool away on a cart, and attach a new tool the same way. This is tedious and not possible for one person to do by themselves.

Robot companions are just what the doctor ordered

Abrar Al-Heeti for CNet: "We've done tests before with a screen or even the robot on a screen, and nobody cared," Deblieck said. "But from the moment the Zora solution came in, you saw people starting to move."

How Motion Control Puts the Robo in Robotics

Efficient motion control technology replaces the heavy, power-hungry traditional mechanical and hydraulic components with accurate, efficient electro-mechanical control systems. Within the traction, steering and braking systems of these energy-efficient cars are brushless torque motors.

The Hydroponic, Robotic Future of Farming in Greenhouses

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.

Drones in the Wind Industry

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.

RoboticsTomorrow.com - Q&A with Bionik Laboratories

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.

Keio University Research: Innovative touch sensitive avatar-robotic arm based on real time haptics

Researchers at Keio University's 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.

IRobot's Colin Angle on the Home Run of Robotics (It's Not A.I.)

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, "We're going to need a lot of robots."
