Clone Robotics’ humanoid hand uses hydraulics to mimic complex human hand function.
Manipulator robots can be found anywhere from automotive factories to hospitals. Used to grab and move items of various sizes, manipulators comprise a multi-jointed arm and an end effector.
Robotic joints, which are sometimes known as axes, are the moveable parts of a robot that cause relative motion between adjacent links. These links refer to the rigid components that connect the joints to ensure their proper and straightforward operation. To guarantee precision and accuracy while using a robot, it is crucial to check that the joints are operating as intended. This article gives a detailed explanation of robotic joints, and the types of robots and mechanical joints used in robotic technology.
Exploring a new way to teach robots, Princeton researchers have found that human-language descriptions of tools can accelerate the learning of a simulated robotic arm lifting and using a variety of tools.
Franka Emika Robots are serving up mocktails, coffees and soft drinks to technology fans in Switzerland at the Smyze Robotic Bar. Thirsty customers simply order drinks via a touchpad and the robot then launches into action preparing the desired beverage.
Intelligent Flying Robots is a revolutionary approach to Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) that enables accurate contact-based inspection to fulfill industrial asset inspection standards with many advantages.
Franka Emika robots helped create the 2020 Philip Plein Digital Runway Show. The video and photoshoot replaced the usual city-based fashion show that was cancelled due to the Corona pandemic.
Franka Emika GmbH from Munich has developed the world's first automated corona test station. With the use of a specially developed cobot, the test station enables people to get tested without any human interaction.
In this video, we can see a Franka Emika Robot packing a mobile phone. The robot is able to be trained in the task using intuitive mimicry, and then it is able to repeat the task without break, theoretically indefinitely.
PCB testing requires high quantities (up to several tens of thousands) of printed circuit boards for in-circuit testing need to be inserted into a manual test fixture then removed after testing is complete.
Touch screen user interface is ubiquitous on everything from smartphones, and laptops to ATMs. In this video, the Franka Emika robot tests the touchscreen functionality of two phones.
The inner child in many of us feels an overwhelming sense of joy when stumbling across a pile of the fluorescent, rubbery mixture of water, salt, and flour that put goo on the map: play dough. (Even if this happens rarely in adulthood.)
In this episode, we talk about how engineers are tackling the problem of sorting through piles using robotics and a platform that leverages fake data to train robots more efficiently.
Columbia Engineers build a robot that learns to understand itself, rather than the world around it
