Advanced robotic solutions on display at Automate 2017

Advanced robotic solutions on display at Automate 2017
On booth 270 at Automate 2017, TQ Systems will showcase its RoboDrive technology as part of its first public appearance in North America. RoboDrive motors were designed by researchers at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) for the International Space Station. TQ RoboDrive is suited for robotics because the motors are compact, are half the weight and half the power losses at the same torque as other commercially available motors, and feature strong dynamics and precision.

What morals do robots have and need?

What morals do robots have and need?
In industry and in ETH Zurich’s research laboratories, intelligent robots are now being developed and used for transport, health care and manufacturing applications, and you already can find offers for security, maintenance and service robots on the market. What’s more, there are now also less obvious uses for artificial intelligence, such as for financial trading, social networks and digital advertising.

A robotic ‘golden ticket’ for UK companies

A robotic ‘golden ticket’ for UK companies
A European-wide initiative has been launched to enhance robotic technology and several UK businesses have secured one of 25 available ‘golden tickets’ to get involved. Automata Technologies, Hexagon Metrology, Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK) and Russell Finex are the latest UK beneficiaries from the second and final round of the ROBOTT-NET Voucher Programme, which saw the in-demand vouchers handed out.

Helping the Red Cross to save lives using UAVs

Helping the Red Cross to save lives using UAVs
Unmanned Ariel Vehicles, (UAVs), have shown their potential to save lives during a trial that took place last month in Erzberg Mine, Austria, as part of a joint collaboration between Roke and Jaguar Land Rover.

Quadruped robot exhibits spontaneous changes

Quadruped robot exhibits spontaneous changes
The research group of Professor Akio Ishiguro and Assistant Professor Dai Owaki of Tohoku University have, for the first time, successfully demonstrated that by changing only its parameter related to speed, a quadruped robot can spontaneously change its steps between energy-efficient patterns (gait transition phenomena). Until now, the manner in which changing speeds cause quadrupeds to change their gaits - walking, trotting and galloping - is poorly understood.

DIY robotics kit helps automate biology experiments

DIY robotics kit helps automate biology experiments
Elementary and secondary school students who later want to become scientists and engineers often get hands-on inspiration by using off-the-shelf kits to build and program robots. But so far it’s been difficult to create robotic projects to foster interest in the “wet” sciences – biology, chemistry and medicine – so called because experiments in these field often involve fluids.

Flying around fighting crime is all in a hard day's work

Flying around fighting crime is all in a hard day's work
A round-the-clock drone unit has been launched by the Devon and Cornwall police force, to help them tackle and keep down crime. A ‘drone team manager’ was advertised for by nine policing centres across the two counties and Dorset, to come and set up and manage an ‘operational and dynamic drone response’.

Looking at practical applications within AI in robotics

Looking at practical applications within AI in robotics
Not so long ago discussions around artificial intelligence in robotics were limited to theoretical ideas and possible applications. But now the existing systems are already capable of taking advantage of advanced AI to help make robotics and automation more efficient. And it doesn’t have to stop at laboratories and research facilities either. Artificial intelligence is already being used in production lines and other practical applications.

Gel material could help control movements of soft robots

Gel material could help control movements of soft robots
A material that naturally adapts to changing environments was inspired by the strength, stability, and mechanical performance of the jaw of a marine worm. The protein material, which was designed and modeled by researchers from the Laboratory for Atomistic and Molecular Mechanics (LAMM) in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), and synthesised in collaboration with the AFRL expands and contracts based on changing pH levels and ion concentrations.
