Researchers, including Ken Goldberg’s team at UC Berkley, are hard at work developing robotic systems that assist surgeons by automating routine, often tedious subtasks common to all surgical procedures.
RBR essential announcements for the interval ranging from March 12 – 19, 2021 include notices from FORT Robotics, Piaggio Fast Forward, Trimble, Monarch Tractor, Cruise and AEye.
Anthony Levandowski, who pleaded guilty to one count of trade secret theft and was pardoned by Donald Trump, simultaneously built and undermined the autonomous vehicle sector. The long term impact is unclear.
In this Robot Report podcast, AMP Robotics CEO Matanya Horowitz discusses the economics of the recycling robots. Also, Festo’s Josh Fox describes winning the MassRobotics-GM Gripper Challenge.
The capabilities spectrum for robotics systems has been expanded from fixed manipulators and teleoperated mobile robots to now include their intersection – mobile manipulation systems. To reach their full potential, however, mobile manipulation robots must be able to move, interact, see, think, and communicate.
As this Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute (ARM) project illustrates, ARM is placing a great amount of emphasis on sewing and textile handling. The reason is completely in keeping with ARM’s charter to “accelerate transformative robotic technologies to increase U.S. global manufacturing competitiveness.”
The construction sector is huge, but famously stubborn in its adoption of new technology. That is changing as advances in construction automation continue apace… including the development of construction robotics solutions. Challenges remain, but they are being addressed.
In this Robot Report podcast, Terradepth’s founders discuss their autonomous, underwater data collection solution. Also, Exyn Technologies’ CEO describes the company’s autonomous aerial system for data collection in GPS-denied environments.
In this RoboBusiness Direct session, Nicolaus Radford, CEO and CTO of Houston Mechatronics, will describe the growing opportunity for commercial class, unmanned maritime systems, including new applications and markets.
DreamVu’s single-sensor solution simplifies robotics systems development, reduces computational load for image processing, and provides precise, omnidirectional, 3D visioning.
This webinar was presented on Thursday, November 12, 2020 Please click below to watch on demand ‘Motion’ in the physical world, whether in the form of changing place, position or posture, is perhaps the greatest differentiator between robotic systems and all other classes of engineered products. It is motion is that makes robotics systems ‘robotic’,…
As robotics systems become more globally interconnected and ubiquitous, cybersecurity risks for companies using and developing them increase. Alias Robotics address the challenge with a mixture of software, hardware and consulting services solutions.
Thanks to engineering partnerships with maxon and Solvay, Flybotix goes to market with a highly capable drone-based industrial inspection solution that addresses a real business need. For maxon and Solvay, their Flybotix work deepens their sector and technological expertise, extends their IP portfolio, and enhances their reputation in the commercial drone space. But is there more?
Robotics pioneer Rodney Brooks, who co-founded iRobot, Rethink Robotics, and Robust.AI, among other companies, will discuss mega trends pulling robotics development in the Oct. 1 RoboBusiness Direct keynote.
Increased automation—with its ability to significantly boost societal productivity—is needed to help modern nations address seemingly intractable challenges such as sluggish wage growth, aging populations, rising health care costs, environmental restorations, global competitiveness, and often-worrisome levels of public sector debt.
Monash University’s Dr. Nicole Robinson explains how social robots can play a role in diet and weight reduction without the need for human intervention.
