The outcome for Rethink Robotics demonstrates that even when companies are in a popular sector, they still face challenges that could make it hard to thrive. As such, the company's closing should not be viewed as a sign of a struggling robotics industry.
LiDAR offers a number of advantages over other perception solutions, enabling smart machines to "see" far distances and generate a 3D representation of their surrounding environment to detect obstacles and make intelligent navigation decisions.
Robotic devices for clinical rehabilitation of patients with neurological impairments come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and employ different kinds of actuators.
Stanford researchers have developed an electronic glove that bestows robotic hands with some of the manual dexterity humans enjoy.
The Nuclear and Applied Robotics Group, based in the University of Texas at Austin, has a mission to "develop and deploy advanced robotics in hazardous environments to minimize risk for the human operator."
Funded by a five-year, $3.5 million NIH grant, the academic-industry partnership aims to develop an MRI-compatible robotic technology to provide minimally invasive brain tumor therapy that is ready for clinical trials.
Universal Robots Offers Rapid Response Delivery, Enabling Manufacturers to Meet Tax Deduction Deadline
With an industry leading manufacturing process, Universal Robots can meet delivery deadlines for the Section 179 tax deduction incentive that can dramatically reduce the cost of collaborative robots to address repetitive and difficult-to-fill manufacturing jobs
We identified more than 30 vendors that are currently marketing over 80 cobot models, and we expect this number to grow. More than 80 percent of collaborative robot suppliers generated less than $10m in revenues last year.
Well-designed smart technology tools can help government agencies, the environment and residents. Smart cities can upgrade the efficiency of city services by eliminating redundancies and finding ways to save money, as well as provide higher-quality services at a lower cost.
By working in tandem with AI and robotics in healthcare, humans can deliver a higher quality of care for patients in very measurable ways.
Automated transportation is not just limited to providing practical solutions for logistical problems, but it also ensures that its solutions enable enterprises to pinpoint and address their logistical inefficiencies in real-time.
The iTENDO is the world's first intelligent toolholder with real-time process control. In an interview, developers Friedrich Bleicher and Johannes Ketterer explain how the embedded systems solution makes production smart and economical.
The goal of our project is to create a dual-arm collaborative robot with a humanoid shape entirely designed, made, and built at Polytechnique Montreal (Canada).
Yeti has the goal to develop an autonomous snow clearing service for use on future airports. The product will be introduced in steps, in parallel with the development of technology for self-driving vehicles.
A stable wheelchair is automatically heavier. The same thing applies to exoskeletons. For a wearer to move about freely for an entire day, the battery has to be very powerful. But this means that it is also large and heavy.

ATI Industrial Automation's MC-10 Manual Tool Changer provides a cost-effective solution for quickly changing tools by hand. Its compact yet robust design is optimized for collaborative robot applications. The ergonomic twist-collar locking mechanism ensures a secure attachment of the tool and easy manual operation with tactile feedback. This Manual Tool Changer can carry payloads of up to 22 lbs and includes multiple fail-safe features that resist vibration and prevent loosening. The MC-10 Manual Tool Changer has integrated air pass-through connections and options to connect electrical utilities if needed. ATI will feature the new MC-10 along with a variety of other robotic demonstrations and product displays at this year's IMTS show in Chicago (Booth #236417).
