Using machine vision inspection with high-performance Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) cameras, ISW GmbH designs turnkey hardware/software solutions for the pharmaceutical industry to specifically ensure accurate dimensions and fill levels of ampoules in production, replacing error-prone manual quality control processes.
With a reach growing far greater than factory floors, robots will continue to aid and assist wherever needed. Here are five of the medical applications for robots in use today.
May was another big month of money flowing into robotic ventures. But May was even bigger in launching new robotics-focused venture funding groups.
Although farming has become mechanized, the evolution of agricultural techniques to include unmanned robots provides a unique opportunity.
The recent developments in algorithms and sensor technologies make it possible to efficiently implement vision guided robotics tasks for manufacturers.
The most immediate benefit of cleaning robots is what is called "Daytime cleaning": the fact that there is no need to keep the facility lights on at night for cleaning purposes.
Understanding an applications requirements is critical in choosing the best device for successful data acquisition.
Lean manufacturing is thinking "out of the box". Removing time, effort, and cost from the manufacturing processes is the solution to Lean manufacturing and competitiveness.
Capturing and processing camera and sensor data and recognizing various shapes to determine a set of robotic actions is conceptually easy. Yet Amazon challenged the industry to do a selecting and picking task robotically and 28 teams from around the world rose to the competition.
Here are some crowd funding projects of interest.
RPA can bring about a "virtual integration" of multiple systems while executing repetitive work more accurately and reliably than humans can.
Essentially, USAR robots act as the eyes and ears in environments that that are too difficult or too dangerous for humans to go.
A dashboard is a single rqt window with one or more plugins displayed in movable, re-sizable frames.
Taking first place and the $2 million in prize money that goes with it is Team Kaist of Daejeon, Republic of Korea, and its robot DRC-Hubo
Drones will eventually be "as ubiquitous as pigeons", London-based futurist Liam Young recently predicted. They will be used for a lot of different tasks. One overlooked drone application even has the potential to become a trillion dollar business. And to save the world.

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is one of the most reliable methods for parts sensing in factory automation today. SICK has made this technology affordable and easy to use! Click on the video link below to learn about the TiM1xx LiDAR sensor and how it provides: - Area scanning LiDAR technology in a standard sensor package - 200-degree field of view and 3 meter sensing range allows for 169 square feet of area scanning - Compact size and light weight enables ease of deployment in "non-standard" type applications, like end-of-arm robotic tooling - Wide area scanning without having to mount a transmitter and receiver makes installation much easier - IO Link for easy configuration
