Battling The Recycling Crisis With Robotics

If robotics technology is going to keep oceans and rivers clean, it will need human help. Humans and robots working together is essential in order to effectively manage the recycling crisis.

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.

Interview with Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE Team Eauligo

For the competition we will launch a horde of miniature robotic submarines called Marine Bees. They take their design from real bees, not just for the way they look, but also because they mimic the behavior of real bees and the operation of a hive to explore and image the ocean floor.

Interview with Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE Team ARGGONAUTS

We are building two types of animals: one animal which runs at the water surface (the "water strider") and one which goes down (the "great diver"). These pairs are the basic units of our system.

In Search of a Lost Veteran

The largest submarine of WWII has been sitting on the bottom of the ocean off the Japanese coast for 70 years. Researchers finally found the lost wreck with the aid of an underwater robot - and Swiss drive technology.

Discover how human-robot collaboration can take flexibility to new heights!

Humans and robots can now share tasks - and this new partnership is on the verge of revolutionizing the production line. Today's drivers like data-driven services, decreasing product lifetimes and the need for product differentiation are putting flexibility paramount, and no technology is better suited to meet these needs than the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot. With force feedback, collision detection technology and an intuitive, hand-guided teaching mechanism, the TM Series cobot is designed to work in immediate proximity to a human worker and is easier than ever to train on new tasks.
