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.

Benefits of PCB Testing with robots

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.)

Robots play with play dough

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.

Podcast: Teaching Robots To Find Buried Objects

Columbia Engineers build a robot that learns to understand itself, rather than the world around it

A Robot Learns to Imagine Itself

A way to expand training data sets for manipulation tasks improves the performance of robots by 40% or more

'Fake' data helps robots learn the ropes faster

In a recent project, Professor Edward Adelson and Sandra Liu — a mechanical engineering PhD student at CSAIL — have developed a robotic gripper using novel “GelSight Fin Ray” fingers that, like the human hand, is supple enough to manipulate objects.

A flexible way to grab items with feeling

In this episode, we talk about how ostriches are inspiring a new generation of bipedal robots and the innovation enabling remote endovascular surgery.

PoleAttraction™ is an advanced stage of electroadhesion technology, developed by Engimotion which promises to revolutionize industrial automation.

Understanding the Fundamentals of PoleAttraction™ Technology

One of the main things people are interested in when solving a complex robotic manipulator problem is the DoF and Functions. These two distinct pieces of terminology help to shortcut conversations and make sure everyone is talking on the same page!

'Degrees of Freedom' vs 'Functions' of a Robotic Arm

The system could provide teleoperated endovascular treatment to patients during the critical time window after a stroke begins.

Joystick-operated robot could help surgeons treat stroke remotely

The aim of this article is to provide a high-level answer to the question: “What do people use underwater robotic arms for?” If you’ve worked with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) before, this article probably isn’t for you. For everyone else, let’s go.

Top Uses of Underwater ROV Manipulators

In this video, Franka Emika cobot is carrying out assembly operations on a task board designed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
