    Mobile robotics is the new mega-trend at Hannover Messe this year. Whether autonomous or on a platform, mobile robots represent the third robotics revolution, one that opens a new era of cyber-physical production systems. In our video report, we talked to Kuka and Stäubli and met with their newcomers.

    Hannover Messe saw SCHUNK win this year’s Hermes Creative Award for its Co-act Gripper JL1. One of a series of grippers designed for human-robot collaboration, the Co-act was conceived for smart production applications in the context of Industry 4.0, with software providing artificial intelligence. Co-act features...

    Roboy is a humanoid robot developed by the Universities of Munich and Zurich and 3D printed by EOS. Equipped with an advanced cable system that mimics muscles, it can exhibit human-like behaviors. DirectIndustry e-magazine shook hands with Roboy at Hannover Messe (watch our video) and met with Rafael Hostettler,...

    More than 100 Japanese companies were exhibiting at the Hanover trade fair in late March. Japan established a new economic partnership with Germany and is an official CeBit partner this year, underscoring its leadership in future technologies. Watch our highlights made in Japan.

    The new wave of cobotics—robots that can safely work alongside humans—offers tremendous possibilities for industry. And with artificial intelligence (AI), smart robotics is changing the game. Thanks to new cognitive capabilities, robots can perform more than just repetitive tasks. DirectIndustry e-magazine interviewed...
