Robotics in Education

Robotics and STEM education can be deployed as part of other school curricula, and not just science. As an example, there are programs in which teachers are using robotics in art and history classes.

Vacuum Systems For Successful Robot Implementation

The design of a vacuum system and choice of vacuum components for robot end effectors can be of crucial importance for a successful robot installation. This paper discusses vacuum solutions for robot end effectors, which increase the possibility of a successful robot installation. At the same time, I would like to resolve the misunderstanding that all vacuum ejectors are expensive to operate.

Compliance In Motion - An Automotive Parts Application

Even 1 mm of misalignment between the robots end of arm tool and the position of the parts in the table could cause costly damage.

ATI's 7th Annual Technology Training Fair

We covered a variety of recently developed ATI products including new Robotic Tool Changers, Utility Couplers, Tool Changer Modules, and other new robotic end effector products and applications.

Integrated Wheel Drives for Electric Utility Vehicles

Well look at electrically-powered vehicles in this load class of about 100 lb (45 kg) up to 2,000 lb (900 kg), and in particular the types of propulsion systems used in them, including fully integrated traction drive systems.

The DARPA Robotics Challenge Rundown

Teams are competing to develop and put to the test hardware and software designed to enable robots to assist humans in emergency response when a disaster strikes.

Solar Powered Unmanned Vehicles

When you have the combination of high energy density and thin and flexible form factor, you can apply this solar material to anything with a battery that moves, can be carried, or worn.

Six Advantages of Ethernet for Auto ID Readers

Ethernet cabling has been standardized. The cables for an Ethernet-enabled Auto ID reader are common with all standard Ethernet equipment.

Case Study: Robotic Press Brake - Automated Metal Bending

The goal is to completely automate the brake press to bend a variety of different parts.

Lucky guesses or accurate predictions?

In 1962, Rosie, the robot, was more than just a maid to the Jetson family. Well, Toyota is working on such a robotic maid, which should be released in the next few years.

Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces and Robotics: John Phillips, Pleora Technologies

Were seeing growing demand for interfaces that dont require a traditional frame grabber inside the personal computer (PC), as well as a migration towards smaller form factor PCs with embedded processing.

Closed Loop Current Transducer Characteristics

A properly selected current transducer for an application can easily give 25+ years of service. By acknowledging the details behind the data sheet, better performing applications and more robust designs are possible.

Microscan Imagers Ensure 2D Code Readability During Manufacturing of Miniature Identifiers

Bridging the gap between ease of use and performance, the QX Hawk features a high resolution modular optical zoom system, aggressive X-Mode decoding, and simple plug and play connectivity.

Can robots find the hidden treasures of history?

In the future, an autonomous archaeological robotic excavation system could be deployed in these and other extreme landscapes. The design of the robotic system, including its instrumentation and motion controls, descends directly from the fields of medical and construction robotics.

ASIC Based Current Transducers

The implementation of ASIC based current transducers opens up functionality that the traditional discrete component transducers could never achieve.
