Underwater Robot Completes Sampling Operation

2020-04-28T18:12:24-04:00

The first ever automated underwater robot has now completed its first operation, diving down 500 meters and collecting a sample. The robot, named Nereid Under Ice (NEI), was development in partnership with The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and NASA’s Planetary Science and Technology from Analog Research (PSTAR) program. [...]

Bin Picking With 3D Robots

2020-04-28T18:12:26-04:00

In the United States the unemployment rate is at its lowest in nearly fifty years. As a result, the need to automate bin picking is urgent. In the U.S., where 38% of the manufacturing labor force moves parts between bins and manufacturing machines, 500,000 jobs remain unfilled. […]

Use Of Infrared Cameras In Reconnaissance Robots

2020-04-28T18:12:30-04:00

Various infrared and thermal-imaging devices help detect covert threats, objects, and suspects. Unlike standard image intensifiers that amplify low levels of light, thermal imagers are more sensitive to infrared (IR) light. Therefore, they are not susceptible to ‘blooming’, which is a condition caused when a bright-light source relative to the [...]

Robotic Vision Using IR And QR

2020-04-28T18:12:39-04:00

Think about it – talking speakers (Alexa); Vacuum Cleaners (Roomba); The Clapper (lights on, lights off) – robots are in the house. In the not so distant past, we watched and laughed as The Jetson’s invaded our living rooms with robots that did almost all of the housework. Without robotic [...]
