Vecna Robotics, a leader in intelligent, next-generation, robotic material handling autonomous ground vehicles (AGVs), was awarded first place in the DHL & Dell Robotics Mobile Picking Challenge 2017. The event was held last week at the DHL Innovation Center in Troisdorf, Ge
There Is no experience like CES with the largest global gathering of innovation and the connected future of technology with 4,000 exhibiting companies-600 of which are new.
Carolyn Said and Benny Evangelista for the SF Chronicle: San Francisco's ordinance resembles laws enacted in the early days of "horseless carriages" that required a person to walk in front of a car waving a red flag, said Bob Doyle, spokesman for A3.
Patrick Caughill for Futurism: The feature would use the onboard computing system to analyze conditions to determine the best course of action.
Robots as inconspicuous as they are ubiquitous represent the vision of researchers in the new and burgeoning field of material robotics.
Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Its first product is a sensor-laden suit that a person can wear to demonstrate actions so that a robot can then replicate what they do.
With expertise in robotics, bioengineering, behavioral science, nerve regeneration, electrophysiology, microfluidic devices, and orthopedic surgery, the research team is creating a living pathway from the robot's touch sensation to the user's brain
The group will bring together members of the security industry, end users, technology experts and other interested parties to promote best practices regarding the use of robots in security
Oregon State University via Science Daily: "The point here with something like a self-adjusting shoe is it no longer resembles a robot -- that's kind of the direction of ubiquity we're imagining."
UTA's Emotional Robotics Living Lab Will Research How Robots Can Be Integrated Into Homes as Companions and Caregivers
The University of Texas at Arlington has launched a new Emotional Robotics Living Lab to investigate what our future will look like with robots and how they can be integrated into the home to provide physical and emotional support.
James Vincent for The Verge: Each muscle consists of a sealed bag filled with air or fluid, containing a folding origami structure that functions as the skeleton.
Abrar Al-Heeti for CNet: "We've done tests before with a screen or even the robot on a screen, and nobody cared," Deblieck said. "But from the moment the Zora solution came in, you saw people starting to move."
Home-use assistive devices will first require a great deal of training and effort for the user. As a result, we thought the integration of the Amazon Echo would greatly assist this process, and facilitate ease of use as Echo also continues to improve.
Researchers at Keio University's Haptics Research Center have developed a 'real-time-avatar-robotic arm' that transmits sound, vision, and highly sensitive feelings of touch to remotely located users. This innovative touch sensitive robotic technology was reported in the October 2017 issue of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics and demonstrated at CEATEC (October 2017, Tokyo). The technology is expected to find applications in areas such as industrial manufacturing, harvesting farm produce, and nursing care.
Robert Buderi for Xconomy: "helping people stay in their home as they age and maintain the lifestyle advantages of living at home." And that means, he says, "We're going to need a lot of robots."
