Galil Motion Control, an industry pioneer in motion control technology, is announcing Frequency Analysis Software (FAS) which allows tuning of servo control systems in the frequency domain.
The newest episode of the robotics podcast, Flexible Elements, is up now. Host Per Sjöborg interviews Juan Gómez of Robotics Lab about the snake modular robots he is developing. In the Robotics Lab of his modular snakes have acquired new gates (styles of moving) that include rotating, rolling, turning, moving forward and moving backward. Everything is fully open source with full plans available for 3D printing. The audio is available here . With a full synopsis and links from the discussion on Sjöborg's website here.
FANUC Robotics robots will be out in force at this years PPMA Exhibition being demonstrated by FANUC Robotics UK and also by several of its strategic partners. Besides demonstrating the many benefits of FANUC robots for the packaging sector, the underlying theme focuses on affordability.
Ford Motor Company is investing $100 million globally to install robotic plant laser inspection technology to improve quality through reduced wind noise and more refined fit and finish.
Jaybridge Robotics in cooperation Kinze agricultural equipment manufacturer have unveiled the first autonomous grain cart system. The driverless system is fully controlled by advanced software and is capable of performing a complete workflow during the harvest process. This includes locating a moving harvester in the field, synchronizing with it, collecting its grain and delivering that grain to trucks near the field for transportation.
Kinze Manufacturing, Inc. today unveiled an innovative solution to increase productivity on the farm-the Kinze Autonomy Project. The technology, which is the first of its kind in row crop production worldwide, utilizes autonomous agricultural equipment to complete many tasks on the farm with minimal direct human input.

Pursuant to the agreement Precision Optics agreed to assign to Intuitive Surgical all of its currently issued and non-expired patents and pending patent applications, and Intuitive Surgical agreed to grant to Precision Optics a royalty-free, worldwide license to these patents in fields outside of medical robotics.
TurtleBot.eu , the official European store for Willow Garage's open source, Kinect enabled, TurtleBot have been working hard at getting the original US design compatible with EU standards. The conversion meant swapping swapping the original iRobot Create base for normal consumer Roombas as well as creating a new power board, and adapting trays. The design plans for EU compitable power board and adapter are now available here . The original Willow Garage design can be found here .
KCF Technologies has developed a Smart Tether system for Kongsberg-Mesotech sonar units which integrates Smart Tether positioning functionality with the Kongsberg Mesotech MS1000 software.
In early 2008 I asked my Merrill Lynch broker for a list of stocks of American robot manufacturers. He couldn't provide me with more than two. So I went online with Bloomberg and found a list of 120 companies involved with automation. When I researched them, there were only a few in the U.S. and fewer still where robotics was the principle business.
Harvard Apparatus has developed a new way to utilize infrared imaging technology to allow clear visualization of histological, physiological, morphological and metabolic phenomena down to the cellular level.
The Robotic Highway Safety Markers system was developed by Shane Farritor a Professor at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The Robotic Safety Barrel (RSB) replaces the heavy base of a typical safety barrel with a mobile robot. The mobile robot can transport the safety barrel and robots can work in teams to provide traffic control. Independent, autonomous barrel motion has several advantages. First, the barrels can self-deploy, eliminating the dangerous task of manually placing barrels in busy traffic. To save costs, the robots work in teams. A more expensive "shepherd" robot with built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation would position itself precisely, and then guide the placement of less expensive units, which measure out their positions based on wheel movement (a "dead reckoning" system). In tests, the robots were able to deploy themselves just about as well as humans could place them - their big wheels let them turn on a dime.
The U.S. Army Rapid Equipping Force, through the Robotics Technology Consortium, selected the Lockheed Martin [NYSE:LMT] Squad Mission Support System (SMSS) to deploy to Afghanistan for a first-of-its-kind military assessment. SMSS will deploy as the winner of the Project Workhorse Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) competition sponsored by the Army.
