Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we've seen many industries go down due to different reasons. However, some industries were able to get past these hurdles and find in the current pandemic the source for their growth. Robotics is one of these industries.
• Mobile robots will take logistics sector by storm, with a 10-fold investment increase predicted between now and 2024 • COVID-19 will be a significant driver in long-term mobile robot growth • Sales of AMRs set to radically outstrip AGV revenues
Trucking is ripe for disruption, and technology like Internet of Things (IoT) devices and robotics are leading the charge.
Ironhand ® from the Swedish company BIOSERVOTECHNOLOGIES is a soft, active exoskeleton for the hands and fingers. Normally, a gripping action is made possible by the muscles in the lower arm and hand.
Can a robot have feelings? Some robots are programmed to show emotion, from online artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot assistants to Sophia the social humanoid robot who can give emotional responses in a conversation.
The novel coronavirus pandemic hit many industries hard, leaving analysts unsure of when things might bounce back for those sectors. However, the combination of the robotics industry and COVID-19 could be beneficial. Here are five reasons why.
When orders are placed in restaurants within the plaza via Baemin application, the robot delivers to the ground floor of customer's residence.
Six-storage delivery solution showcases the start-up's continued leadership in last inch drone delivery logistics
Die casting, the process of forcing molten metal into molds, is far from new. Today, casting processes use a lot more advanced technology, specifically robots, than in years past. These 'bots have many advantages in die casting, but energy saving is one of the most substantial.
A vast majority of manufacturers are integrating robotic systems in production facilities to enhance production capacity, boost profit margins, and cut operational costs. These trends have created a substantial demand for robotic components, including robot sensors like 3D vision.
From recreational robots such as drones, to critical operational robots in the medical field, robotic technology is changing our daily lives.
The recently developed intelligent mooring system from iDL, the intelligent Dock Locking System from Dutch company Mampaey Offshore Industries, is the world's first magnetic mooring system. It makes it possible for a London ferry to dock in just ten seconds.
Cleaning robotics were already on the rise pre-COVID. Now, sanitation has become a top priority for businesses and health organizations around the world. At the same time, many companies are dealing with a shortage of sanitation workers.
Self-driving vehicles have spent their fair share of time in the spotlight recently. Most conversations about the technology revolve around cars and public transportation, but that's not its only application. Driverless trucks are showing promise.
By the year 2022, robotics in law enforcement is expected to be a $5.7 billion industry. This statistic is on trend with a datasheet which found that police agencies recently acquired a record number of robotics available from the U.S. military.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent
• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
