The devices will be world premiered at the CONTROL tradeshow held next week in Stuttgart, Germany (Hall 5, booth #5108).
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has deployed a robotic instrument that will monitor red tide offshore Maine and carry out analysis on board, so people don't have to collect samples and manually process them.
A forward-deployed cell from U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan has outfitted iRobot's 310-SUGV with a new attachment that soldiers say increases their safety from the danger of roadside bombs.
Unmanned systems are drawing increasing interest from not only police and first responders but journalists and environmentalists alike, although privacy fears must be addressed and operational rules created, according to speakers at a Tuesday conference.

SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing 2013 Highlights Vital Role of Photonics for Defense and Commercial Applications
Capabilities essential to the work of first responders, military forces, researchers, and manufacturers were on display last week at SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing (DSS), the largest annual international meeting featuring light-based technologies for defense and commercial applications. DSS 2013 drew more than 6,000 registered attendees and nearly 500 companies to Baltimore, illustrating the essential role the event plays in the development of mission-critical, dual-use technologies such as night-vision and thermal-imaging devices used to thwart terrorism, and chemical-sensing systems for rapid risk assessment in man-made disasters.
Roboteq launches a kickstarter project aimed at creating an amazingly powerful Robot Navigation Computer for its low price and size, and targetting applications in sea, land or airborne unmanned robotics vehicles applications, as well as in more traditional automation and machine control systems
Kinova to unveil MICO, a new state of the art robotic manipulation platform at ICRA 2013 in Karlsruhe, Germany.
Coral ecosystems support around 500,000,000 people, but are severely threatened; the Coralbots team aim to revolutionize how such threats are tackled. Their Kickstarter campaign (closing May 26th) seeks individuals and corporations who wish to make a lasting positive impact on the marine environment, offering ways for individuals, schools and corporations to be directly involved.
Hamilton has collaborated with kit manufacturer MACHEREY-NAGEL® to create the Genomic STARlet™, an automated liquid handling workstation that extracts nucleic acids from biological samples and purifies PCR products in a non-IVD environment.
More than a century ago, an estimated 180,000 female Atlantic sturgeon arrived from the coast in the spring to spawn in the Delaware River and fishermen sought their caviar as a lucrative export to Europe. Overfishing contributed to steep population declines, however, and today numbers have dwindled to fewer than 300 adults.

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
