Supporting ongoing robotic innovation

Supporting ongoing robotic innovation
Exciting new opportunities for greater proliferation of robotics in modern society are emerging all the time. Robots are now capable of performing a wide array of different tasks. They are revolutionising the factory floor by dramatically boosting production throughput. In the form of collaborative robots (or cobots), they can work directly alongside humans in manufacturing facilities, as well as helping with the education of our children and providing care to the elderly.

Pushing the barriers of autonomous systems

The Swarm Technology are not just any ordinary unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). They fly together. Better still, they swarm together, for any Star Trek fans out there. They can also team up with a manned aircraft and act like a force multiplier. This kind of unmanned aircraft can bring significant improvements to almost every area of national and homeland security, from enhanced surveillance to missile defence.  Guest blog written by Andreea Volosincu, Wind River.

Robot swarms to offer truly precise agriculture at a plant level

Robot swarms to offer truly precise agriculture at a plant level
Swarm robots – small, simple and inexpensive – promise to reverse the trend in agriculture towards ever bigger machines. These little workers behave autonomously, interacting with each other and the environment to achieve the desired outcome. The benefits include less damage to soil structure and greater precision for weeding and harvesting. But how close is this to reality and what is needed to ensure their safe, responsible usage on-farm?

83% of brits want robots to do the dirty work
Industrial robot installations in the UK increased for the third year in a row to around 2,300 units (IFR World Robotics Report 2018). This is an increase of 31% (2016–2017). When asked about the workplace of the future, UK employees said they want robots to take over the unhealthy (83%), hazardous (77%) or monotonous (72%) jobs. These are the findings of the automatica Trend Index. In the UK, 1,000 employees were interviewed by a market research institute on behalf of automatica.
