UAVs and UGVs: not just pie in the sky

UAVs and UGVs: not just pie in the sky
Though consumer-level drones have received a lot of bad press in recent times - near misses with aircraft, incidents where members of the public have been injured and flying contraband into prisons - within the defence sector, the high end versions of this technology has the potential to save lives.  By Giorgio Potenza, Strategic Market Manager for High-Rel Systems, Harwin.

Why no one can score against the unbeatable RoboKeeper

Why no one can score against the unbeatable RoboKeeper
As the world cup kicked off in Moscow on June 14th,  the German team failed to notice they were short one player, a world-class goalie. Neymar couldn’t beat him, Ronaldo failed, but the German keeper would not have conformed with the rules - it is a robot. Called ‘RoboKeeper’, the computer-controlled football machine is a development of the Fraunhofer-Institut für Materialfluss und Logistik (IML). Back in 2006, when Germany was in the thralls of its own home world cup, Dipl.-Ing. Thomas Albrecht and his team of scientists set about to develop RoboKeeper.

Controlling robots with brainwaves and hand gestures

Controlling robots with brainwaves and hand gestures
Getting robots to do things isn’t easy: Usually, scientists have to either explicitly program them or get them to understand how humans communicate via language. But what if we could control robots more intuitively, using just hand gestures and brainwaves? A system spearheaded by researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) aims to do exactly that, allowing users to instantly correct robot mistakes with nothing more than brain signals and the flick of a finger.

How to set up the motor controller for the drylin E linear robot

How to set up the motor controller for the drylin E linear robot
In this week’s video, Rene Erdmann, head of the drylin E electric drive technology business unit at igus, shows how easy it is to set up the dryve motor controller for the drylin E linear robot. The web-based system can interface easily to a desktop PC, tablet or smartphone – simply type in the IP address and connect directly to the controller’s interface. Here, different parameters, such as the drive profile, can be set.
