Trends in robotics: Cobots, agribots and medical robots

From recreational robots such as drones, to critical operational robots in the medical field, robotic technology is changing our daily lives.

Public Benefits of Drone Technology

Drones offer some promising solutions to some of our perennial public challenges. We'll take a look at a few key areas in which they're already starting to make a difference across various community issues.

Integration of Robotics & AI in Architecture for Future Homes

So, will AI replace the architect? With the aid of AI, the role of the architect or designer will change. Artificial intelligence will have the ability to generate rapid mass production in the future.

AgBots: The Fourth Agricultural Revolution, Ready to Take Over Farms

In a nutshell, by bringing artificial intelligence and around-the-clock activity, the robots will help optimize the yield of the farms far beyond what could humanly be possible. Maximizing the production while minimizing the costs in energy, water, time.

MiR500 Mobile Cobots Make Traffic Safer in Kverneland's Factory

"The robot saves at least five hours in transport time a week, and the working day is quieter and calmer," Broberg said. "I already take 15,000 to 17,000 steps a day in my job, so I definitely don't miss the walk to the pallet stacker."

From Robot Farm to Table: Iron Ox Unveils the First Fully Autonomous Indoor Farm

Robotics startup with deep roots in plant science aims to feed the world through intelligent farming

Swift Navigation Case Study: Prairie Robotics

The Spraybot delivered inch-accurate positioning and instantaneous heading. Its autonomous navigation had built-in obstacle selection and avoidance. It was designed to both detect and identify plants and rows and deliver spot spraying.

How Robotics Can Transform Agriculture

Its not a stretch to imagine solo and small farm owners keeping up with the major organizations in the business thanks to improved efficiency, maximized output and faster harvest and care times.

Danish "Robot Hands" Pack Delicate Herbs

The two "fingers" of the robot gripper have built-in intelligence and advanced technology that mimics the way humans instinctively use our sense of touch when we grab things to move them.

How A Formerly Struggling AgTech Provider Dominated An Industry Sector, In 3 Steps

David K. Williams for Forbes: The result: production has moved from one machine every 4-6 weeks to an average of 5 machines per month for a total of 130 worldwide and predominance in its sector, with pre-orders booked through June 2018.

How Robotics and Automation Will Affect Labor in the Food System

FoodTank: From seed to table, a revolution in technology that prioritizes robotics and automation is on the cusp of transforming the work required to produce, transport, sell, and serve food.

The Hydroponic, Robotic Future of Farming in Greenhouses

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.

As California's labor shortage grows, farmers race to replace workers with robots

Geoffrey Mohan for LA Times: Now, the $47-billion agriculture industry is trying to bring technological innovation up to warp speed before it runs out of low-wage immigrant workers.

Robotics Ignite Agricultural Revolution

Advanced robotics will make jobs such as harvesting easier for farmers. In time, when robots finally learn how to harvest each individual crop, farms will be able to produce more yields for human consumption.

American Robotics Secures $1.1 Million In Seed Funding

American Robotics, a drone developer specializing in agricultural automation, today announced it has raised $1.1 million in seed funding.
