FRANKFURT — The International Federations of Robotics has published a new paper, “World Robotics R&D Programs," which explores various government-funding programs in Asia, Europe and America. These new technologies include artificial intelligence, big data and 5G.
In this insightful RoboBusiness Direct presentation, FedEx’s Aaron Prather will review the continuing opportunities for robotics solutions in the logistics sector. Prather has successfully deployed robotics applications within FedEx, and he has seen other initiatives go off the rail.
Bossa Nova Robotics is one of the leaders in the retail robotics sector, providing large retailers with inventory-scanning robots that move up and down aisles, tracking inventory supply levels via computer vision and artificial intelligence.
Robots have always struggled to match human touch. But, recent advances in sensor technology now enable the machines to process the sensitive forces needed for delicate assembly tasks, such as placing, inserting and tightening parts.
In this RoboBusiness Direct session, you will learn about one of the biggest opportunities for providers of robotics technologies—retrofitting manually steered vehicles used in various industries to support autonomous navigation. The session will include data on shipments and revenues, as well as overviews of well-known providers of autonomous navigation systems, including Brain Corp., BlueBotics, Built Robotics and Outrider.
Let's not sugarcoat this. The world's manufacturing base is at war with COVID-19 and its destructive, disruptive effects on everything from supply chains to daily production levels and, ultimately, the health of everyone. Getting ahead of this curve will require a much more aggressive approach to using data.
Robots are an important piece of the Industry 4.0 puzzle. Tomorrow's smart factories will depend on new types of machines, such as collaborative and mobile devices that are interconnected. Artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing and data analytics will also make industrial robots more reliable than ever.
Sir Humphry Davy did more than just invent electric welding in 1800 when he created electric arcs between two carbon electrodes using batteries. He set a precedent for welding innovation that continues to this day.
The fifth generation of wireless technology is quickly emerging. It will greatly expand the broadband capabilities of mobile networks and provide advanced wireless service for a wide variety of applications ranging from cell phones to assembly lines.
