NREL Invites Robots To Help Make Wind Turbine Blades

Although robots have been used by the wind energy industry to paint and polish blades, automation has not been widely adopted. Research at the laboratory demonstrates the ability of a robot to trim, grind, and sand blades.

Terabase Energy Completes First Commercial Deployment of Terafab™ Solar Construction Automation System

The benefits demonstrated by this project underscore the transformative potential of automation in advancing solar construction practices, enabling us to accelerate and de-risk our project pipeline

How Robotics Can Help Global Renewable Energy Goals & Create Jobs

By buffering the dangerous aspects of solar module maneuvering and installation, these smart robotic arms are creating processes to move solar equipment faster and build sites with fewer errors.

How Can the Utilities Industry Benefit from Robotics?

For the utility industry, these new robotics could offer significant benefits - and, in some cases, we're already beginning to see how the adoption of robots can make utility work safer and more productive.

3 Trends in Robotics Energy Consumption

Energy efficiency is an increasingly prominent concern as electronics adoption and environmental consciousness both rise. Robotics must consume less energy to sustain their growth in the future.

Energy Saving in Die Casting Automation

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.

Robotic Assistance and the Future of Energy Sustainability

We already know that robotics can help protect our oceans in a number of ways, from improving wastewater treatment to improving fuel efficiency on ships. Thus, it makes sense that robotic assistance can have a positive impact on the sustainable energy sector.

Ingenious mini camera with 5 MP and autofocus

Ingenious mini camera with 5 MP and autofocus

Whether in a hand-held scanner, on a robot arm or in a photo booth: the tiny uEye XS makes sure that objects are always perfectly in focus. The tiny camera fits into any application. Discover now what the versatile 5 MP autofocus camera from IDS Imaging Development Systems is capable of! The uEye XS starter set is ideal for testing the camera. In addition to the compact USB2 camera, it includes a cable, a tripod adapter and a tripod. If the distance between the lens and the object is constantly changing, users benefit from industrial cameras with automatic focus. They eliminate the need for manual refocusing and ensure that objects or labels are always perfectly visible. However, there are more decisive factors for a good picture quality, such as natural colour reproduction and harmonious contrast. IDS has therefore equipped the uEye XS with many other practical automatic features familiar from consumer technology. This includes white balance, exposure and gain. As a result, it delivers the best possible result in every situation. If you want to fine-tune even more precisely, you can make the appropriate settings in the SDK (IDS Software Suite). Thanks to its small size and the proven USB2 interface, the uEye XS camera is suitable as a component in embedded vision systems. It is used, for example, in medical or security applications, in transport and logistics or in kiosk systems.
