AutonomouStuff, the leader in enabling the future of transportation, will proudly unveil additions to their R&D Platform fleet and modular-based software applications at CES 2017. The fleet, which expands on their original Lincoln MKZ-based platform, now includes the Ford Fusion, Polaris Ranger and Polaris GEM.
Get a first look at the robots responsible for changing the way we live during the CES Robotics conference track and within the Robotics Marketplace, both presented by Robotics Trends.
Evan Ackerman for IEEE Spectrum: As sensors, computers, actuators, and batteries decrease in size and increase in efficiency, it becomes possible to make robots much smaller without sacrificing a whole lot of capability. There’s a lower limit on usefulness, however, if you’re making a robot that needs to interact with humans or human-scale objects. You can continue to leverage shrinking components if you make robots that are modular: in other words, big robots that are made up of lots of little robots. In some ways, it’s more complicated to do this, because if one robot is complicated, robots tend to be complicated. If you can get all of the communication and coordination figured out, though, a modular system offers tons of advantages: robots that come in any size you want, any configuration you want, and that are exceptionally easy to repair and reconfigure on the fly. MIT’s ChainFORM is an interesting take on this idea: it’s an evolution of last year’s LineFORM multifunctional snake robot that introduces modularity to the system, letting you tear of a strip of exactly how much robot you need, and then reconfigure it to do all kinds of things.

DRONE VOLT, the French professional drone manufacturer is launching the "DV WING". This flying wing drone is dedicated to precision agriculture and construction work and will enrich the company's range of professional drones.
Combat UAS veteran owned, Unmanned Systems and Solutions can repair consumer and commercial drones in our 120,000 square foot US facility. Most repairs take less than a week.
Milrem: In the Foreseeable Future Soldiers in Most Dangerous Situations Will Be Replaced by Smart Robotic Systems
Milrem has successfully tested the THeMIS as an unmanned weapons platform together with the Estonian Defence Forces and Singapore Technologies Kinetics, one of Asia's leading land systems companies and producer of the remote weapon station.
Developer of Wave Glider® ocean robot boosts ocean data collection capabilities
Osteopathic Emergency Physician Launches New Medical Disaster Drone for Audience of Homeland Security, Global Health Organizations
Technology demonstration showcases life-saving capabilities of medical disaster drones in a simulated active shooter scenario; gives emergency physicians rapid response capabilities--eyes, ears, and voice to remotely treat victims of disaster and terrorism
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) engineer Amy Kukulya teamed up with marine biologist and WHOI guest investigator Kara Dodge to use an underwater robot called TurtleCam to track and film leatherback sea turtles in their natural environment. The researchers tagged their first turtle in Massachusetts's Vineyard Sound in September 2016 and captured remarkable footage - from cameras on TurtleCam and on the turtle tag - that allows the researchers to record how much a turtle eats as well as how often it breathes.
Alan Boyle for Geekwire: The Boeing Co. says it has agreed to acquire Liquid Robotics, its teammate in a years-long effort to create surfboard-sized robots that can use wave power to roam the seas. The acquisition is expected to help Boeing create military communication networks that can transmit information autonomously from the sea to satellites via Sensor Hosting Autonomous Remote Craft, or SHARCs. Liquid Robotics was founded in 2007 and currently has about 100 employees in California and Hawaii. Once the deal is completed, the company will become a subsidiary of Boeing. The arrangement is similar to the one that applies to Insitu, a Boeing subsidiary that is headquartered in Bingen, Wash., and manufactures ScanEagle military-grade drones. Cont'd...
"These technologies are helping meet farm labor needs and making farming safer, more efficient, and more profitable," said NIFA Director Sonny Ramaswamy. "With each year of investment in agricultural robotic research we learn more about how humans can benefit from automation in the field."
The goal of ARIBO is to provide automated, on-demand transportation to wounded warriors traveling between the Warrior Transition Battalion barracks and the Womack Army Medical Center.
Consortium For Execution of Rendezvous and Servicing Operations (CONFERS) envisions consensus-based technical standards that would encourage responsible on-orbit commercial servicing operations
Imagine the potential in dissolving the boundary between humans and automation. Creating this collaborative human-automation technology will allow automation to transcend its current role of being a tool and elevate it to the role of a teammate. Human Automation Teaming Solutions Inc., a technology start-up that received a $1 million contract from NASA, has been tapped to create this technology.

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
