Machine control needs to evolve to handle ever more complex processes as operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) systems converge.
Remotely-operated aerial robots can operate in dangerous conditions, which make them ideal for certain oil and gas operations.
Many of the world's oil and natural gas resource lie beneath the oceans. Autonomous robots can help explore and dig them out.
A new control system developed by MIT researchers may broaden robots’ range of tasks and allow safer interactions with people.
As a part of Cyber Valley, the AI Innovation Center “Learning Systems” operated by Fraunhofer IAO and Fraunhofer IPA supports companies in their efforts to exploit the economic potential of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI).
Insect-sized drones have been developed with a soft actuator that allows them to withstand the physical travails of real-world flight, which could help their overall movement in many applications. See video.
The Artificial Intellience of Things (AIoT) can offer many potential benefits for edge and cloud computing applications for manufacturers.
There are many ways automation benefits can be tangibly realized now and they will be needed as the COVID-19 pandemic is changing how we realize value on the factory floor.
Labplas redesigns custom production machines with EtherCAT, robotics and AI for quality control, ensuring ROI of less than one year on all upgrades, for 15 to 35% machine productivity increases.
Robotic orders for 2020 were 3.5% higher than 2019 with non-automotive robotic orders surpassing automotive orders for the first time ever, according to the Robotic Industries Association.
