Self-healing Circuits

We have created electronic circuitry that is soft and stretchable and capable of spontaneously reforming electrical connections when the material is cut, torn, or punctured. It is made of microscopic droplets of liquid metal that are suspended in a soft silicone rubber.

Case Study: Epson Robots at Taylor Guitars

The main feature that I like is just that it has kept the precision and repeatability over the last 5 years and we havent had to worry, we havent had to replace any parts. We have done virtually no maintenance what-so-ever.

Making Offshore Oil Rigs Safer with Robotics and Automation

Automation of the oil and gas industry has been slow, but we seem to be standing on the brink of a revolution in this niche. All eyes are now turned to the first fully automated robot starting its work in the North Sea and heralding a major change.

How Drones Can Change the Way we Drive

One of the major ways in which drones may change the way we drive and travel is by helping first responders to clear road collisions much more quickly and efficiently.

Neuroscientists Create Prosthetics to Help Amputees Feel Again

The most recent prosthetics can stimulate the nerves so that when a person comes in contact with something, they feel sensation with help from electrical impulses.

Using CNNs in Cars

Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are going to play a crucial role in the development of self-driving cars. Applications include driver alertness monitoring, driver gaze tracking, seat occupancy and more

How Self-driving Vehicles Contribute to a Culture of Safety

Companies recognize that maintaining a safe work environment is just as important as increasing productivity. Its maximizing the safety and efficiency of a facility that matters most, and SDVs are a tool both manufacturers and warehouses can use to makes this possible

Dürr Building Smart and Resource-efficient Paint Shop in Mexico

Dürr is building a paint shop in Mexico for its customer BMW Group that meets the requirements for connected Industry 4.0 production. This ultra-modern plant features the first integrated smart factory concept from Dürr in the world is being built at San Luis Potosi

Advancement of Robots in Medicine

Robotic surgery is deemed by and large safer than open surgery. The hospital stay is shorter, reducing the risk of infection; pain and discomfort is reduced; recovery time is faster; and blood loss and transfusions are lessened.

Robotic Process Automation vs. Business Process Automation in the Modern Customer Centric Enterprise

RPA is just one automation tool that can play a role in a larger automation / improvement strategy, where technologies such as Business Process Automation or Business Process Management (BPM) also play a role.

What's Driving Investments in Surgical Robots?

Ideally, hospitals and clinics would be able to justify the cost of a new robot based on scientific studies on its effectiveness and business cases on its usability. But for new platforms, these are very scarce.

How Industrial Self-driving Vehicles Use Sensors for Localization and Mapping

OTTO self-driving vehicles depend on three different sensors to identify its current position as well as to navigate where and how it needs to travel from point A to point B. As in any dense and dynamic environment, elements in OTTOs path can change minute to minute

Power Density in Robotics

A question of torque - Inspection robots for pipes and ducts, rescue robots in disaster areas, or humanoid robots - they all have one thing in common: They are mobile robots that aid humans.

What's the Difference Between Analog and Neuromorphic Chips in Robots?

Encompassing a mere four square centimeters and holding more than 5 billion transistors, the chip also features 1 million digital neurons that function via 256 million digital synapses. It's hard to ignore the chip's parallels to the human brain

Lending A Hand - Or Four: How A New, Four-Arm Robot Will Forever Change Neurosurgery

Two hands are better than one, so consider how doubling that to four hands - with robotic steadiness - will forever change neurosurgery, and especially life-threatening blood clots and brain tumor resections.
