Can robots find the hidden treasures of history?

In the future, an autonomous archaeological robotic excavation system could be deployed in these and other extreme landscapes. The design of the robotic system, including its instrumentation and motion controls, descends directly from the fields of medical and construction robotics.

ASIC Based Current Transducers

The implementation of ASIC based current transducers opens up functionality that the traditional discrete component transducers could never achieve.

Automated Guided Vehicles: The Hot Trend in Distribution Centers

Automatic Guided Vehicle industry sales projections for 2014 are very strong, particularly in distribution. Flexibility, versatility of systems, bolstered by evolutionary advances in controls are some of the key selling points.

UAV Positioning and Communications

While today's technology is highly advanced and offers sufficient end user applications, there is room for advancement in both the areas of research in the current technology as well as new and unique solutions in applications that have not been tried before.

AUVSI 2013 Special News Report

This is our special news page where you can read about and post news and announcements about products and services exhibited at AUVSI 2013 Unmanned Systems.

All Things Plastics Injection Molding

Many injection molders have begun their Continuous Improvement Journey and as these small teams study reduction in waste, redundancy, and efficiencies, they bring forward ideas to make more use of production robots.

The Cyton Robotic Solution

We like to use the term train rather than program. The simplest way to train the Cyton is by using what we call assistive mode. In this mode the operator grabs onto the gripper and manually moves it where it needs to go. This information is used by the software to create a path which can be repeated or modified through an intuitive graphical interface.

Case Study: Harvest Automation HV-100 Robots Are The Key That Unlock Production Efficiencies

The robots require minimal training to operate, while reducing production costs and improving productivity. They are flexible to deploy on open beds, hoop houses and greenhouses with any type of plant on all common ground surfaces including ground cloth, poly, and gravel.

Next Great Thing: Chasing Innovative Products is a Long, Hard Trek

The boss' challenge is to figure out which are the good ideas and which are great ideas. But the real innovator? It's the customer … he/she/they determine what idea is insanely great and which is…

Robots In Architecture

The emergence of robotic technologies for architectural design raises questions about how methods of construction might change in the future. Effective architectural robots have a great future in structured environments.

Portable Danish Robot Expands Production With California Manufacturer

Total setup time including all programming and tooling took eight hours. Moving the robot from one application to the next now takes about 30 minutes.

After 5,000 Years, Automation Finds Its Way Into The "Lost Wax Process"

With home-grown innovation and ABB robots, MPI, Inc. has discovered the secret to incredible increases in productivity and quality for today's most competitive foundries.

Six Axis Robots Benefit Plastic Molders

Six axis robots provide all the advantages of the simple Cartesian systems (high speed, slim forearm and simple programming) but have none of the limiting features that restrict the incorporation of additional tasks. The 6 degrees of freedom in movement provides an extremely large work envelope within a small footprint.

Flexible Seals for Robotics Systems

The Roxtec system is based on a rubber-sealing module that consists of two halves, a center core, and removable black and blue layers. This construction ensures adaptability to different sizes of cables and pipes.

Global Future 2045 Takes A Hard Look At Today

Bottom line of all of the interfaith / spiritual speakers was to emphasize that we are preoccupied with the "how" of change and not the "why."
