Catbot - the new generation of smart assistant robotic arms

Catbot - the new generation of smart assistant robotic arms
Human-robot collaborations are happening across factories worldwide, yet very few are using it for smaller businesses, due to high costs or the difficulty of customisation. Elephant Robotics, a new player from Shenzhen, the Silicon Valley of Asia, has set its sight on helping smaller businesses gain access to smart robotics. They created a Catbot (a collaborative robotic arm) that will offer high efficiency and flexibility to various industries.

Should robotics education be compulsory in schools?

Should robotics education be compulsory in schools?
Robotics education should be made part of the school curriculum, according to a fifth of UK adults polled to mark the official start of UK Robotics Week (20th to 27th June 2019). Twenty percent of a representative sample of UK adults want compulsory lessons to be given in the nation’s schools so that children can fully engage with learning about robotics technology.

Scanning eye providing robot sight

Scanning eye providing robot sight
Robots must be equipped with sensors and software for three-dimensional vision in order to gain a spatial understanding of and precisely control objects in their environment. A research team at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) has been developing and manufacturing micro-scanner mirrors, ‘MEMS’ scanners, which provide robots an ability similar to human vision needed to perceive objects and perform demanding tasks.
