Matt Simon for Wired: Today, three of these machines from Universal Robots handle the brute sanding and painting, while humans handle more complicated tasks like assembly. Some of these workers even turned into robot technicians.
Eric Rosenbaum for CNBC: The Global X Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Thematic ETF has attracted more than $650 million from investors in January, one-fourth of its total assets raised in less than a month.
Bill Ibelle for News@NorthEastern: While drones and driverless cars dominate the headlines, another breakthrough-robot dexterity-is likely to have an even greater impact in both business and everyday life
Chris Martin for Bloomberg Business Week: Even before Trump's tariffs, the U.S. panel maker underpriced Chinese rivals with a spray-on, energy-absorbing metal and largely automated factories.
John Revill, Oliver Hirt for Reuters: "The last couple of years ABB was in the repair shop and now we are coming out. With political stability and digitalisation we have positive conditions and a better platform to participate in the upturn,"
Chris Preimesberger for eWeek: CA Technologies is adding collaborative robot research and development to its already-packed product dance card.
William G. Lovell for Electronic Design: I began using it for a new type of robot called the "Omni-chassis." This is a powered robotic chassis that can carry different payloads or functioning modules.
Matt Burgess for Wired: The ARMAR-6 prototype robot can help humans with basic maintenance tasks in prescribed scenarios. But it still needs to get smarter
Scott Schrage, University of Nebraska-Lincoln via Phys.org: The technique, which creates a stronger chemical bond between silicone and an unprecedented array of plastics, could greatly reduce the time, complexity and expense needed to produce the microfluidic devices.
Matt Simon for Wired: "Companies like Amazon and others are now delivering products at an unprecedented rate, something like 500 packages per second. And that is only going to grow."
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.
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.
Matt Simon for Wired: The company is developing machine learning algorithms that will automatically detect diseased plants and kick them out of the system before the sickness spreads. Underdeveloped plants would also get the boot.
Alison DeNisco Rayome for TechRepublic: By 2023, we will see an increasing use of humanoid robots for education, as well as in the retail industry, to better personalize customer support.
The importance of robotics for Europe's regions will be the focus of a week-long celebration of robotics taking place around Europe on 17-27 November 2017

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
