Robot R&D: Bearings

Robot R&D: Bearings
Accuracy describes how closely a robot reaches a commanded position. When the absolute position of the robot is compared to the commanded position, the error calculated is the measure of accuracy. Chris Johnson of SMB Bearings explains how quality bearings are integral for improving accuracy in the robotics industry.

Drones grounded after falling out the sky

Drones grounded after falling out the sky
  Drones are being used more and more frequently every day, and soon it seems that seeing one flying overhead will not be such a novelty anymore. However, due to a fault which can cause drones in the DJI Matrice 200 series to drop out of the sky, UK police have grounded some of their drones.

It's likely in the future you will be talking to robots

It's likely in the future you will be talking to robots
Automation has always lent itself to the manufacture of mass produced disposable medical devices and the bulk processing of samples - for two main reasons; initially for speed and repeatability, and then because human presence poses one of the biggest contamination risks in a clean production or processing environment.

Patrolling robots to destroy petrol plant explosions

Patrolling robots to destroy petrol plant explosions
Autonomous robots fitted with tiny chemical sensors that listen to the ‘sounds’ coming off gases will instantly detect gas leaks in petrochemical plants and pipelines to dramatically improve disaster responses. The risk of a petrol plant explosion or a potential disaster on an oil refinery could be dramatically reduced thanks to a new generation of tiny chemical sensors that use light and sound to ‘listen to’ gas leaks.

‘Robotic skin’ turns everyday objects into robots

‘Robotic skin’ turns everyday objects into robots
Robots are typically built with a single purpose in mind. In contrast, new elastic sheets full of high-tech gear turn almost anything into useful robots. Robotics are usually something rigid, heavy, and built for a specific purpose. New ‘Robotic Skins’ technology developed by Yale researchers flips that notion on its head, allowing users to animate the inanimate and turn everyday objects into robots.
