The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) is helping to accelerate the field of soft robotics by sharing the design source files and full build instruction for its innovative domestic robot hands.
New developments in robotics – including smart robotics, collaborative automation, and similar technology – may be essential for processors handling these modern challenges.
The 2020 Honeywell Intelligrated Automation Investment Study revealed that e-commerce (66 per cent) grocery, food and beverage (59 per cent) and logistics (55 per cent) industries are most willing to invest more in automation.
Retrofit machines can bring legacy devices into the Internet of Things. Sensors and digital controls provide valuable information and integrate older machines into new, intelligent factory management systems.
According to a recent report from the World Economic Forum, 85 million jobs could be lost and displaced by new technologies in the next five years. It’s no surprise that workers, particularly in manufacturing, worry how these developments will affect their jobs.
Valet Market is a new way for consumers to shop for everyday items. They simply download the app and use their phone to check in to the store. Once inside, shoppers can select desired items and walk out without having to wait in line to check out.
The manufacturer of the robot processing cell is the Zimmer Group from Rheinau in Germany. On its way towards Industry 4.0, the Zimmer Group has evolved from a classic component supplier to a system provider and has thus produced an entire robotic cell at once.
With more companies bringing robotics and automation into their facilities, many people understandably wonder if machines will eventually replace their jobs.
As the use of robotics and automation increases, so too does the need to protect these valuable assets.
The risk to humans in warehouses is well known with the UK logistics sector reporting around 28,000 non-fatal accidents at work annually but businesses are now realising the risk of safety to highly sophisticated and expensive assets noting that these too require protection.
Running a well-optimized warehouse can help maintain high productivity levels, reduce error rates and keep clients satisfied. There are many ways to achieve better optimization, and installing automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) is a popular solution.
Watch this MIT startup’s robot unload a trailer blazingly fast. The secret? Keep people in the picture.
Teams from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia have concocted using robots to screen honey bees while they work. An automated vehicle flies around, catching pictures of the bug, which PCs subsequently examine to uncover potential mines covered up in the ground.
Zimmer Group is announcing the introduction of an updated version of its established XYR1000 axis compensation module series.
Deep-learning technique optimizes the arrangement of sensors on a robot’s body to ensure efficient operation.
Stretch’s mobile base allows it to go to where repetitive box lifting is required – unloading trucks, building pallets of boxes and order building. Stretch makes warehouse operations more efficient and safer for workers.
