Worldwide, over 10M people require a wheelchair, but these individuals often run up against barriers to their use. Wheelstair’s solution, a wheelchair add-on technology, can overcome many of these obstacles.
Are you in a robotics start-up or intending to form one? Although the robotics and automation sectors are expanding rapidly, with funding for robotics start-ups at an all-time high, the process can be daunting. In this RoboBusiness special event – Robotics Startup Boot Camp: Tips of the Trade – young robotics entrepreneurs will be provided with insights from industry experts covering the major phases of forming and growing a successful robotics company.
In Episode 82 of The Robot Report Podcast, Steve Crowe and Mike Oitzman are joined by Niels Jul Jacobsen, CEO of Danish startup Capra Robotics, a developer of an innovative mobile robotics platform which uses a suspension system and unique wheel frame.
In this webinar, attendees will be provided with an overview of the agricultural robotics sector including a review of existing ag robotics systems, as well as highlighting current opportunities and gating factors. In addition, the latest platforms and technologies used to create agricultural robotics systems will be reviewed.
What is the state of the robotics and automation sector at 2022’s midpoint? ABI Research’s Lian Jye Su has a few thoughts, five in fact.
Manufacturers must continue to automate to remain competitive, but the introduction of robotics systems will impact their facilities and human workers. The results of a recent survey by Veo Robotics of 500 manufacturers the US, UK, and Japan provides insights into the optimal path forward when introducing robotics systems, and challenges conventional thinking.
In Episode 81 of The Robot Report Podcast, Steve Crowe and Mike Oitzman are joined by Jeremiah Robison, CEO of CIONIC, a developer of bionic clothing that enables the body to move with more freedom and control.
The Collaborative Robotics Sector continues to evolve with the addition of smaller platforms, as well as systems capable of handling much heavier payloads. Mobile collaborative robots are also under development.
For manufacturers and others, tow-lines for assembly line conveyance deliver solid ROI, but AGVs and AMRs can provide equal efficiencies and value, with the added benefits of greater scalability and flexibility.
In this Robot Report Podcast, Jack Morrison, co-founder and CEO of Scythe Robotics, discusses the commercial market for autonomous mowers and how Scythe is going to market using a Robots-as-a-service business model.
To optimize their effectiveness, increase human-robot collaboration, and reduce the risk of mishaps, autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) must understand, and take cues from, the social behavior of their human coworkers. Cloud-based technologies for deep learning training are key to making that happen.
In Episode 79 of The Robot Report Podcast, Steve Crowe and Mike Oitzman are joined by Amir Bousani, co-founder and CEO of RGo Robotics, to discuss the state of perception for mobile robots.
The Field Robotics Engineering Forum seeks session submissions that focus on the design and development of robotics systems that operate in outdoor, unstructured and dynamic environments, such as construction worksites, open mines, and farm fields, as well as busy urban centers.
Like all manufacturers, aerospace and defense firms must engineer existing or new facilities in preparation for much higher levels of robotic automation. To do otherwise places them at a competitive disadvantage.
The autonomous vehicle and robotics sectors often employ LiDAR as the primary system navigation sensor. But cameras and vision-based perception will increasingly serve as the technological underpinning for mobile robots going forward.
In Episode 78 of The Robot Report Podcast, Steve Crowe, Mike Oitzman and Dan Kara review the recently held Robotics Summit & Expo and Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum.
The robotics and automation sector’s premier business development event seeks session submissions that highlight commercial opportunities for robotics solution providers, and speak to robotics and business innovation in all its forms.
Technology providers such as Qualcomm are offering robotics development ‘platforms’ that incorporate ML and 5G enablers. But development platforms alone are not enough to drive robotics innovation forward, at least not until the supply robotics engineering talent exceeds demand.
This webinar focuses on how AI and machine learning SW / HW technologies and techniques are being employed in ground based, aerial and maritime systems to make robots more intelligent and functional.
