What Are Robots Doing at Schools?

With the help of telepresence robots, teachers can teach a lesson from anywhere. The robots are in classrooms. Their cameras and sensors are the eyes and ears of the teacher.

Preparing Students for the New Industry Standard

Offline Robot Programming is a technology that is quickly being implemented in manufacturing facilities all over the globe. This implementation results in an increase in efficiency, time and cost savings, and results in less down time.

Can Robots help get more Girls into Science & Tech?

Matt Simon for Wired: The United States has a serious problem with getting women into STEM jobs and keeping them there.

There's a huge opportunity in robotics for early career computer scientists

Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The reason is that programming a robot is no easy task, which presents challenges when it comes to deployment. That's particularly true of small- and mid-sized businesses, which are unlikely to have a qualified roboticist onboard.

Colleges Are Marketing Drone Pilot Courses, but the Career Opportunities Are Murky

Elizabeth Woyke for MIT Technology Review: At least 15 community colleges offer them, but it's not clear how many students parlay their new skills into jobs.

CMU's interactive tool helps novices and experts make custom robots

Phys.org: A new interactive design tool developed by CMU's Robotics Institute enables both novices and experts to build customized legged or wheeled robots using 3D-printed components and off-the-shelf actuators.

OSU College of Engineering establishes institute for robotics, intelligent systems

It's called the CoRIS Institute, short for Collaborative Robotics and Intelligent Systems. Institute director Kagan Tumer said the new center would conduct research in robotics and artificial intelligence, as well as machine learning, vision, sensors, devices, and new materials. The institute also will explore public policy and ethical questions surrounding the deployment of robots and intelligent systems.

Collaborative robots in the classroom deliver hands-on learning

RAMTEC Career center in Ohio is home to the largest, most comprehensive robotics education center in the U.S.

The Unmanned Safety Institute launches drone STEM program.

The Unmanned Safety Institute, the leading provider of Career and Technical Education (CTE) curriculum and industry certifications to students interested in a career as professional remote pilots, announced today at the National Science Teacher Association's National Conference, that it has launched a major CTE workforce development initiative in conjunction with high schools and colleges throughout the United States.

Robomatter's Robotics Curriculum First To Be Certified By ITEEA

The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association recognizes Robomatter's excellence in developing engineering curriculum as part of Robomatter's Robotics Curriculum Continuum

Raspberry Pi-powered arm: This kit aims to make robotics simple enough for kids

Nick Heath for TechRepublic:  Think it's tricky to build and program a robot arm? Think again. Powered by the Raspberry Pi, the MeArm Pi is a robot arm designed to be simple enough that kids aged 11+ can build and program it. The lightweight plastic arm, which can pick up small objects such as Lego bricks, comes as a kit that keeps the number of screws to a minimum and is relatively straightforward to assemble using the included hex keys. It can be controlled via the Pi, either using joysticks attached to the included Pi HAT add-on board or by programming it from the Pi.   Cont'd...

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
