Can Robots Work Alongside Humans Safely?

The same technology that has provided value for warfighters can be brought into the commercial world to provide safety and efficiency for forklifts, golfcarts, lawnmowers and porters to carry your luggage in resorts and shopping carts that can follow or lead you in retail stores.

Case Study: Alignment Device With On-center And Off-center Locking

The KA device's ability to lock to center and also off center is critical to this application. That ability, coupled with the device's reliability and repeatability, makes for a great solution in this application.

Romo - Robot Powered by a SmartPhone

Romo is an adorable miniature robot that harnesses the powerful processor in your smartphone, making him an affordable personal robot you'll want to take home to your family.

Rethink Robotics' Baxter and Universal Robots UR5 and UR10 are Succeeding

Low-cost robots are marching into Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)

What is the best way to explore Mars?

No matter how we look at it, robots are the logical choice at this time to explore the red planet and as we make robots more autonomous, they will be better at their assignments than humans.

A Conversation with Henri Seydoux, CEO of Parrot

The success of the AR.Drone and now the AR.Drone 2 has proven Henri's conviction that there is a large consumer market for this type of entertainment product and that there are other related high-potential markets on the horizon.

Machine Vision System Detects Defective Parts for Precision Stampings Supplier

With production rates of 3,200 pieces per hour for a single production line and an acceptance rate of virtually 100% required by mobile phone and hard drive manufacturers (one defective piece per 120,000), 100% inspection of the components is necessary to ensure that all orders will be accepted by the end customer.

Grizzly - Robotic Utility Vehicle (RUV)

We build all our robots around a popular open source robotics development framework, called Robot Operating System (ROS). Since it is open source, it makes it quite simple to integrate with other open source initiatives, like Android.

Unmanned Systems Markets: What People Are Saying

Nobody is sure how much the DoD will decrease spending on unmanned systems, but the fear of such cuts has spurred developers to accelerate the transition to civilian applications.

Is That Robot Thinking?

Presently, most robots are programmed to perform definite tasks and they perform them with absolute precision, but when precise movements are replaced with thoughtful movements, the robot will need to learn how to perform a task and then proceed. The robot will no longer be the precise machine that it was, but one that is prone to errors as we humans are.

Interview with Mitch Rosenberg, Rethink Robotics

This year, Rethink Robotics will offer a Software Development Kit that enables customers and third parties to develop unique task applications. As a result, Baxter will be more than just a robot, it will be a platform for third-party capability development-much like mobile phones and PCs are today.

Multi-application Robot Arm Is 'Child's Play' To Program

"Teaching the robot is child's play, both Julian and I taught ourselves within a day," Steve Blease continued. "The teach mode is ideal for establishing the basic approach and then it's just a question of fine-tuning for final positioning."
