Structured Light imaging is commonly used for machine vision because it can yield high resolution results. Some of the methods can be used effectively in moderate and high-speed applications.
Two hands are better than one, so consider how doubling that to four hands - with robotic steadiness - will forever change neurosurgery, and especially life-threatening blood clots and brain tumor resections.
John Koetsier for Forbes: In worst-case scenarios, 800 million jobs could be lost globally; in best-case scenarios, robots squeeze humans out of just a few at-risk occupations.
Contrary to sci-fi tales of robots taking over, there's an abundance of ways that robots help keep people safe. Across a variety of industries, robots are minimizing the chances of injury and death at worksites.
Sensors and gripper arms can simply be attached and removed as needed. You don't even have to be a specialist to quickly and easily replace a defective part, which makes the robots extremely flexible and economical to operate.
Collaborative effort proves the business case of 3D LiDAR, sending autonomous navigational technologies into perfect flight
The future of AI will require facing rapid change, vagueness, and difficulty. We need to be prepared for different adaptations of the future. There is no way to know what path the development of AI will take.
Modular construction isn't new, but robots are making it more efficient than ever while addressing a labor shortage. Bringing robotics into the equation allows more parts of the building process to happen in customized facilities.
VTT's proof of concept demo showed that a range of sensors or smart identifications can be added to 3D printed metal parts during manufacture, in order to track the performance and condition of machines or devices, or verify the authenticity of the parts.
725 exhibitors will showcase a full range of technologies, products and solutions in more than 370,000 square feet of space filled with hands-on exhibits, interactive demos, and new products.
There are 4 possible scenarios for collaboration between user and robot. The bottom line is that in truth the only safe way to work with a robot is to guard it.
AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2018 took place in Denver, CO April 30th - May 3rd. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Whether it is enabling mobility, improving the ability to handle material, or in the case of Nvidia Isaac simulating the learning required for intelligence, AI is delivering improved robotic capabilities and helping businesses to enhance operations through the use of robots.
As the plant floor has become more digitally connected, the relationship between robots and machine vision has merged into a single, seamless platform, setting the stage for a new generation of more responsive vision-driven robotic systems.
Applications in which the environmental/atmospheric conditions are controlled are usually applications where having a pneumatic gripper is undesirable. Clean room, medical, pharmaceutical applications, etc.

AS40 Conveyors are designed for ease of use and simple integration with robotic applications. Built on a rigid aluminum frame, they feature tee slots for rapid accessory mounting and a tail that flips up at the push of a button for easy under-belt cleaning and belt changes. Nosebar tails are available for transferring small parts between conveyors. All conveyors include a 10 Year Warranty and most are available with a fast five day lead time.
