There are concerns regarding the use of fully autonomous security robots which may get in the way of bringing them to market. Whether those concerns are legitimate or not may impact how quickly robotics will be adopted for security purposes.
Teams from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia have concocted using robots to screen honey bees while they work. An automated vehicle flies around, catching pictures of the bug, which PCs subsequently examine to uncover potential mines covered up in the ground.
Researchers have developed a passive acoustic remote sensing method for unmanned underwater vehicles, which was demonstrated in Charles River field experiments, pictured here.
The deployment of latest technologies in the UGV to enhance navigation and communication systems will positively influence the unmanned ground vehicles market outlook.
Search and Destroy: Worcester Polytechnic Institute Students Build a Robotic System to Find and Safely Detonate Landmines
Student teams are developing an autonomous rover and payload-deploying drone to find and safely destroy hidden munitions that kill or maim as many as 20,000 people around the world each year.
Acquisition of Proven Leader in Mission-Critical Robotics Systems for $385M Will Provide FLIR Entry Into Attractive Unmanned Ground Vehicles Market for Military, Public Safety, and Critical Infrastructure
Japanese investment and telecoms giant SoftBank puts $37m into next generation robotics company Boston Dynamics after it bought the business from Google.
Using an all-terrain wheelchair as a platform, the undergraduates are building a communications network and algorithms for autonomy, navigation, and vision processing as part of a student challenge
These embedded module solutions or COM are being used in an increasing number of drone applications because they allow for a greater degree of flexibility, scalability, as well as longevity, within a very small form factor.
Mariella Moon for EnGadget: While the team's UAVs are scanning the skies, their tactical plane will focus on what's happening down below. The plane is equipped with high-resolution CCTVs with facial recognition
The Economist: "Slaughterbots" is fiction. The question Dr Russell poses is, "how long will it remain so?" For military laboratories around the planet are busy developing small, autonomous robots for use in warfare, both conventional and unconventional.
David Z. Morris for Fortune: Mountain View-based Knightscope has said in a statement that the robot "was not brought in to clear the area around the San Francisco SPCA of homeless individuals," but only to "serve and protect the SPCA."
Robotic bugs are a game changing technology, opening up possibilities that were fiction a generation ago.
David McNally, ARL Public Affairs: Teams of researchers gave 17 live demonstrations of the technologies they've been working on over the past several years. The University of Pennsylvania showcased a group of autonomous quadcopters that self-organize into formations.
Future of Life: Open letter by leaders of leading robotics & AI companies is launched at the worlds biggest artificial intelligence conference as UN delays meeting till later this year to discuss the robot arms race

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
