Stephanie Cannon of Pitney Bowes discusses deploying robotics systems from Ambi Robotics to support E-commerce. Plus Waymo’s self-driving cars and Sword Defense’s robotic sniper rifle.
While deep learning methods have proven useful for autonomous navigation, the approach requires vast amounts of data and computing power, and produces solutions that are inefficient, fragile and unaffordable for many classes of applications. Opteran’s “Natural Intelligence” approach, based on the function of insect brains, provides an alternative for generating complex, autonomous behaviors for machines.
In this podcast, Right Hand Robotics’ Yaro Tenzer discusses discuss bin-picking solutions. Plus Waymo expands service into San Francisco and Locus Robotics celebrates their 500Mth pick.
It is advanced software, working in conjunction with hardware systems, that has driven the commercial drone sector to new heights. Similarly, software is the key capabilities enabler for other types of robotics systems going forward, including mobile robots.
The Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute’s Suzy Teele recently interviewed READY Robotics’ Juan Aparicio about overcoming the barriers to entry in the industrial automation and robotics sectors.
