Leading robotics maker also weighs in on how the cloud makes robots smarter
Personal assistance robots may represent a major breakthrough in home care as the global population of seniors grows rapidly.
Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode and vision traceability solutions for packaging and production environments, announces it will showcase the latest AutoVISION™ machine vision product suite in Booth #1472 at next month's Pack Expo 2012, taking place Oct 28-31.
Microscan announces the availability of the MS-2D imaging engine with dual optical field for linear barcode, 2D symbol and direct part marks (DPM) decoding applications. The new MS-2D engine offers advanced technologies for decoding and is designed specifically for embedded applications.
World's First Dual Channel Brushless DC Motor Controller Targets Small Electric Vehicles and Robotics
The controller also includes protection against overheat, stall, and short circuits.
The controller accepts commands from analog joystick, standard R/C radio, or RS232 interface, and can switch automatically from one mode to the other.
Emergency responders now have a new remotely piloted unmanned helicopter to use when inspecting dangerous or difficult to reach areas. The Draganflyer aircraft streams wireless digital video down to the operator and displays it on a handheld screen.

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.
