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
A way to expand training data sets for manipulation tasks improves the performance of robots by 40% or more
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.
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.
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!
The system could provide teleoperated endovascular treatment to patients during the critical time window after a stroke begins.
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.
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).
The Franka Emika Robot cobot has quick precision screwing capabilities for a variety of applications. The seating control strategy capability, for example, secures a precise clamping torque by adjusting the final target torque based on the seating torque.
