KAIRO 3 – Autonomous stair climbing with the snake-like inspection robot

(Published on Aug 5, 2015)

The reconfigurable inspection robot KAIRO 3 with its snake-like kinematics can autonomously climb up unknown obstacles like stairs. An integrated rotating laser scanner (KaRoLa) is used to capture precise 3D point clouds. Multiple point clouds are registered and a 2.5D map is generated. Based on this map paths over obstacles are planned and motions with joint angles are generated. The resulting paths depend on the current configuration (amount of modules) of the reconfigurable inspection robot KAIRO 3.

Name the robot in the Deakin Universirty’s new robot

Published on Aug 5, 2015

Deakin Universirty are calling on all VCE creative arts and media students to help us find a name for  new mechanical colleague! The  humanoid robot will be used across a range of research and arts projects, with the goal of teaching the robot to dance. Live motion capture data will be used to help Deakin Motion.

Robot Spins a Web of Carbon Fibers To Make Large Rocket Parts

Published on Aug 4, 2015

A new composite robot performs an elaborate “dance” as it moves up and down a 40-foot track releasing carbon fibers from 16 spools and placing them in intricate patterns to make composite parts for space vehicles. The robotic fiber placement system resides in the Composites Technology Center that is part of NASA’s National Center for Advanced Manufacturing at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. http://www.nasa.gov/centers/marshall/…

Robotic Wrap-Around Case Packing System – Brenton Engineering | FANUS

Published on Jul 29, 2015

FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Brenton Engineering specializes in developing end-of-line packaging solutions for a variety of industries. In this video a system comprised of Brenton Engineering’s Series 100 Case Packing frame with four FANUC M-20iA robots make up a case packing solution for continuously moving products. The pucks carrying the product never stop in normal operation to allow for smoother operation.

The four FANUC M-20iA robots pick products from the inbound pucks and place them into the moving cases. Each of the FANUC M-20iA robots attend to a fixed area of the puck and case conveyors. Each robot controls the expansion of a specified product tool that is unique to the product type.  The robot’s end-of-arm-tool adjusts to pick bottled product from a pre-positioned matrix of pucks, then collapses the end-of-arm-tooling to form the smaller matrix size necessary for insertion of the product into pre-positioned cases.

Robotic Shelf Picking – IAM Robotics Automated Storage & Retrieval System (AS/RS) | FANUS

FANUC America Authorized System Integrator IAM Robotics develops mobile autonomous robots that retrieve products from distribution centers. These FANUC LR Mate robots are designed to pick products for e-commerce and small-quantity order fulfillment. Industry trends have strained the capabilities of manual labor and increased the need for warehouse automation. These robotic retrieval units allow warehouse customers to support rapidly growing sales and new demands for faster delivery.

See How Robotics Is Changing What It Means to Be Disabled | TIME

Published on Aug 4, 2015

At the Human Engineering Research Laboratories (HERL) in Pittsburgh, Pa., veterans, engineers, doctors and researchers are working together to improve the lives of people with disabilities. Since 1994, Dr. Rory Cooper and his team have been solving everyday problems of people with disabilities and inventing new technologies to change the way people with disabilities interact with and experience the world around them.
