Cheaper, better robots will replace human workers in the world's factories at a faster pace over the next decade, pushing labor costs down 16 percent, a report said.
Lighting and software engineers are working on a breed of new LED lights containing sensors that gather traffic data. They could help drivers avoid busy roads and intersections, and ease congestion.
In addition to the Swiss Franc and the ECB, what else is being talked about at Davos? Robotics and AI have been taking some interest, so here's the low down of what to keep an eye out for this year.
Bluefin Robotics designs, develops, builds and operates Autonomous Underwater Vehicles for defense, commercial and scientific customers from all over the globe. However, their products are now most notably being employed for plane recovery.
Last week, we published "Friendly Robots: The Future Of Advanced Manufacturing," about the creation of Baxter, the manufacturing robot. Here is a look at the purpose behind Baxter, his role in automating manufacturing, his interaction with humans, and his day-to-day work.
GE’s venture capital arm, Goldman Sachs, Bezos Expeditions and a group of other big names have invested $26.6 million in the company to fund new research and growth. This new investment round brings the company’s total funding to more than $100 million since it was founded by the Australian roboticist, iRobot co-founder and former MIT professor Rodney Brooks in 2008.
According to Nager's January 2015 report, "It is easy to get the impression that American manufacturing has entered a new and exciting period of revival. Many in the media, along with consulting firms and economists, now tout the term “manufacturing renaissance” to describe this so-called revival...if only that were true."
Expert Steve Mustard suggests many risks are caused by a lack of attention towards cybersecurity, reliance on third-parties, and the use of USB drives.
A Spanish company has combined technology with cuisine to develop the 'Foodini,' a 3D printer designed to print the perfect cookie for Santa.
Amazon Senior Vice President Worldwide Operations Dave Clark discusses the company’s army of Kiva robots that help box and ship products.
In the Product Design & Development Brainstorm, industry leaders share their ideas on the continuous and future integration of robots in manufacturing, as well as the ways robotics may change the way we design and create in the future.
Amazon.com Inc., which faces its single biggest day of online shopping on Monday, has invested heavily this year in upgrading and expanding its distribution network, adding new technology, opening more shipping centers and hiring 80,000 seasonal workers to meet the coming onslaught of holiday orders.
Researchers in South Korea are developing a robotic pilot that could potentially replace humans in the cockpit. Unlike drones and autopilot programs which are configured for specific aircraft, the robots' humanoid design will allow it to fly any type of plane with no additional sensors.
The new K5 robot features laser scanning and a 360-degree live video camera, but it won't be chasing down the bad guys. It's designed to move around people as it sends images back to a command center.
Ford developed robots to drive their trucks on the worst roads imaginable. Some courses are so bad they'd injure human passengers. Peter Valdes-Dapena rides shotgun.
The cars of the future — those that can drive themselves thanks to an array of sensors and computing power — will have near-perfect perception and react based on preprogrammed logic. While cars that do most or even all of the driving may be much safer, accidents happen.
GE’s Industrial Solutions business celebrated the grand opening of its new Advanced Manufacturing Lab (AML) in Plainville, Connecticut. The AML is using sophisticated robotics and automated manufacturing systems to design and build production lines.
Pittsburgh is experiencing major economic growth due to a booming robotics industry.
American manufacturing has had great success in automating factories with robots and computers in the last 50 years, and computers are now eliminating many service jobs. This has caused a lot of speculation about how far artificial intelligence can be developed.
The robots are coming. Lowe's is testing whether new bots on wheels can improve its customer service, like helping a shopper find a match for something as simple as a nail.
