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.

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.
Robot orders and shipments in North America set new records in the first nine months of 2014, according to Robotic Industries Association (RIA), the industry’s trade group.
iRobot Corp., the leader in delivering robotic technology-based solutions, has received a $7.6 million order from the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division.
Within the aerospace and defense segment, four trends are driving the adoption of RFID to achieve improved process automation, efficiency and traceability.
Mitsubishi is recalling nearly 166,000 older small cars and SUVs in the U.S. because the engines can stall unexpectedly.
As industrial robots become smarter, faster, more affordable, and develop advanced capabilities such as sensing, dexterity, memory and trainability, industrial manufacturers across industries are looking to advanced robotics to gain a competitive business advantage.
With over 130 aircraft and an average of 1.6 million packages traveling through Worldport, a UPS facility in Louisville, on a daily basis, this facility is not just a massive (and efficient) mailroom, it is a wonder of contemporary automation.
The Department of Motor Vehicles in California has issued testing permits that allowed three companies to dispatch 29 computer-driven vehicles onto freeways and into neighborhoods — with a human behind the wheel in case the onboard computers make a bad decision.
With all the news about cars that will be able to drive themselves and new automotive technology in the works, I have begun to wonder whether things such as driver’s ed. will become obsolete for future generations.
There was more to see than any normal human could take in within the six-day show, so we’ve collected some of the best of IMTS 2014.
Today's Engineering Newswire looks at reaching 290 mph with the Hennessey Venom F5, 3D printing on the Stratasys Uprint, and taking a spin in the marine’s new self-driving jeep.
