Now that’s what I call robotics

Now that’s what I call robotics
We’ve seen robots pick fruit, walk your dog and even protect you from the rain, but now they’re really taking centre stage. YuMi, ABB’s collaborative dual-arm robot, made its conducting debut in Italy on 12th September. Not one to shy away from the spotlight, YuMi directed none other than world famous tenor, Andrea Bocelli (pictured left). At a charity concert for the gala of the First International Festival of Robotics, YuMi entertained over 800 guests from around the world.

Industrial robots offer preicise speed measurement as if by magic

Industrial robots offer preicise speed measurement as if by magic
No matter how hard we try humans cannot live up to the speed and precision of robots. No human can do it as quickly and as precisely. Modern robots can move workpieces around at a speed that you could once only dream of. Precise measuring instruments are needed to avoid mistakes occurring due to the incredibly quick cycle times required in modern production. For this, the manufacturer Omron Adept Technologies of Dortmund relies on systems made by Wachendorff Automation.

My teacher is a robot!

My teacher is a robot!
EU-funded scientists have developed a robot that can assist teachers and may replace them in the classroom for certain tasks. ‘If society is not willing to invest in putting enough humans in front of classrooms to get a high level of individualised teaching that caters to the different ways a child learns, the only answer is technology,’ says project coordinator Paul Verschure, professor of cognitive science and neurorobotics at Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain.
