FlytBase, Inc., an enterprise drone automation company, releases a white paper highlighting the role of autonomous drones in the digital transformation of warehouses. Driven by safety, cost and revenue benefits, warehouses across the world are adopting technologies such as Internet-of-Things, Artificial Intelligence, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Drones are playing a central role in the intelligent automation of warehouse operations – given their ability to fly & hover autonomously, avoid obstacles, navigate indoors without GPS, land precisely on docking stations, operate in fleets and be remotely managed.
The modern workforce needs people with STEM competencies in almost every industry, but many educators are trying to figure out how to effectively deliver a STEM education that makes students truly 21st century ready. Intelitek has released a new white paper, “Crossing the Chasm to Mainstream STEM Education,” that addresses misconceptions about STEM learning and explains how to use technology to revolutionize classrooms and teaching behaviors.
The 4th Edition of UL 1740 is an important leap forward in requirements, aligning it with globally published robotics standard ISO 10218. This update was essential because associated standards ANSI/RIA R15.06 and ISO 10218 had been previously updated to incorporate allowances for a risk/performance based approach to safety as opposed to a prescriptive based approach. In addition, updates made to NFPA 79 and other industrial standards over the past few years needed to be addressed. While many of the changes to the UL 1740 standard are modest, there are a few important modifications that can potentially impact current and future certifications of robotic equipment. The purpose of this paper is to outline those changes, the potential impact and your responsibilities based on the update to the 4th Edition of UL 1740.
Modern robotics is helping organizations address business process challenges in new ways with flexible automation designed to enhance the capabilities of humans within the process — including security. This paper, produced exclusively for SIA members by research firm IDC, examines the opportunity, benefits, and reasons for growth in the robotic security market.
Service Robots provides examples of how service robots differ from collaborative robots, presenting familiar robot forms we already see around us, as well as emerging trends in service robotics. Topics in the e-book include anatomy of a service robot, a companion robot for the International Space Station, and the challenges of creating an appendage with the dexterity of the human hand.
