Asensus Surgical CEO Anthony Fernando extrapolates from current trends, and provides insights into the future of robotics-assisted surgery, digitized surgery and telesurgery.
Voyant’s tiny, high performance, chip-based FMCW LiDAR provides a cost-effective 3D sensing solution for many use cases, including applications in vertical market segments characterized by high production volumes and equally high levels of cost-sensitivity.
Tactile sensing technologies allow collaborative robots to ‘feel’ many classes of objects – hard, soft, rigid, flexible, etc. As EU Automation’s Claudia Jarrett notes, this capability allows cobots to perform increasingly complex tasks while working in a collaborative manner with humans.
Tactile data and virtual sensing company raises additional funding round to expand into new market segments and accelerate growth.
Photoneo implements Parallel Structured Light technology in a 3D camera – MotionCam-3D – which allows the capture of objects moving up to 140 km/h, delivering a point cloud resolution of 0.9 Mpx (and 2Mpx in the static mode).
Ottonomy’s robots make outdoor last-mile deliveries, but the systems also convey items indoors, including within airport terminals.
