Traditionally, robots have been purchased as capital equipment and used to automate a part of the workflow. Recently, companies have been exploring the idea of hiring robot workers similar to the way people are hired: as contractors.
A threat to jobs, a health and safety risk and a technological nightmare. Despite these common protests against robotic technology, demand is growing, creating a new challenge for robot component suppliers.
Three-quarters of total robot sales are currently attributed to just five countries - China, the Republic of Korea, Japan, the United States and Germany.
Insurance companies already employ 17% of all commercial drones. Drones can play a part in all the stages of the insurance lifecycle, especially claims management and fraud prevention.
RobotUnion offers a total of 4M€ in equity-free funding in two open calls for startups and SMEs within the framework of the Horizon 2020 program funded by the European Commission.
The process of training robots through virtual Reality is referred to as Imitation learning. This technique assists a robot to absorb several skills in a low-cost and low risk environment. The robots can easily mimic the human, guided by machine learning algorithms.
Using drones, automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence, companies are leveraging these important warehouse metrics to better serve their customers while improving their own bottom lines.
Drones offer fantastic, labor-efficient technology for close up view of roofs, and can be operated from the ground. They are well-equipped with modern software which makes inspection and report generation easier.
The cost and risks for small to mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) to train employees as well as implement and deploy robots for immediate impact is still too high.
RPA or systems that are augmented with a form of automation - even software based - will completely transform the world of business as we know it. They have a place in nearly every industry in existence and can help improve output and efficiency ...
Top Article for 2018 - How Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Can Create More Employment Opportunities
The impact of AI and robotics on employment goes far deeper than just job creation. AI, and subsequently, robotics, are niche technologies that demand an extensive understanding of every associated parameter.
Module delivers up to 32 TOPS of performance, fits in palm of your hand. Developers can use Jetson AGX Xavier to build the autonomous machines that will solve some of the worlds toughest problems, and help transform a broad range of industries.
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.
This brief coverage of some of the emerging uses of servo motors and drives emphasizes the improvements made possible as these components become increasingly advanced. Such progress should continue over the foreseeable future...
LM Industries low speed, electric and autonomous vehicle, Olli, uses carbon fiber-reinforced polymer thermoplastics in its 3D printing process. Additionally, Ollis chassis is nearly 90 percent 3D-printed

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
