    Epson Robots used September’s Las Vegas Pack Expo to launch a new line of all-in-one SCARA robots. The first model, the T3, has a built-in controller to simplify setup and reduce its footprint. The line is designed to be cost-effective and easy to integrate into existing systems. The T3 is meant for assembly,...

    Rather than simply taking jobs on production lines, the new generation of service robots is finding its place alongside humans, boosting both productivity and safety.   Industrial robots began life as hefty mechanical arms that could spot-weld cars faster than human workers. But today’s robots have developed a delicate...

    Better safety systems and easier programming are making robots practical for an increasing number of manufacturers. For some experts, achieving cognition is the ultimate goal of the fourth robotics revolution.   Dr. Werner Kraus is an industrial robotics team leader at Stuttgart-based Fraunhofer Institute for...

    Soft robots are great helpmates for humans and are well-adapted to dynamic activities requiring flexibility and delicate intervention. But they are susceptible to cuts and punctures from contact with hard or sharp objects. Now, a research team at the Université Libre de Bruxelles seems to have found a solution....

    Mobile robotics is a new mega-trend. Either autonomous or on a platform, mobile robots represent the third robotics revolution…one that opens a new era of cyber-physical production. Last April, at Hannover Messe, we talked to KUKA and Stäubli and met with their new models. More flexible, their robots can navigate...

    According to MIT News, today’s water distribution systems lose an average of 20% of their supply to leaks, even as demand for this precious resource is climbing. Leaks also cause damage to surrounding structures and pollutants may enter the system through breaks in piping. Current leak detection technology is...

    Yaskawa Motoman will introduce its YRC 1000 robot controller at São Paulo’s FEIMAFE 2017 tradeshow this month. The new model can control up to eight robots at a time, is more compact and has a faster processor. The company proposes custom solutions to respond to specific client needs. CEO Icaru Sakuyoshi said the...

    Mobile and collaborative robots, virtual assembly lines, digital manufacturing. It’s not science fiction, but the fourth industrial revolution. Whether it’s Germany’s Industry 4.0, Made in China 2025, or France’s Creative Industry, the goal is the same—build tomorrow’s factory. The nature of international competition...

    Singapore-based Otsaw Digital recently introduced its O-R3 automated ground-aerial surveillance system, a world first. It combines an autonomous robotic security vehicle and a companion drone. Thanks to machine learning, the surface vehicle can avoid obstacles, spot abandoned bags and other suspect objects, and use...

    Service robots, AGVs, virtual reality. We’re at Industrie Lyon, the largest French industrial trade show. Every two years, 1000 small and medium-sized companies introduce their latest technologies. One of this year’s leading themes is cybersecurity. We’re talking to Manoel Bizien, a Stormshield engineer. Specializing...
