American Grippers Inc

Open Robotics University  - 
 
Massimo Temporelli to help create an exciting #robotics project using the world’s first #Arduino based open source industrial controller, the Industrial Shields PLC, as the driving hardware.

Massimo Temporelli is President and Founder of The Fablab, a shared digital fabrication workshop and a central hub for maker culture in Italy. For 20 years he has worked at the intersection of science, technology, and innovation, bringing his expertise to universities, top museums, publications, and on television, radio, and the web. His latest book, Innovatori!, explores the mindsets and perspectives of the world’s biggest innovators.

Researchers, from Leibniz University of Hannover, are developing an “artificial robot nervous system to teach #robots how to feel pain” and quickly react in order to avoid potential damage to their motors, gears, and electronics. They described the project last week at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in Stockholm, Sweden, and we were there to ask them what in the name of Asimov they were thinking when they came up with this concept.

+Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences +Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)  A tiny aerial #robot about the size of a bee (nicknamed RoboBee) uses static electricity (electrostatic adhesion) to cling to the underside of a leaf and perch on other materials, study coauthor Robert Wood of Harvard University and colleagues report in the May 20 Science.

It's incredible the direction robotics is going and the innovations that have happened within the last few years.

ROS interface supporting all standard messages (extendable), and which naturally duplicates the #ROS C++ API Octree objects, that are collidable, measurable and detectable Point cloud objects, that are collidable, measurable and detectable a new custom user interface plugin based on Qt, for Window-style dialogs improved Velodyne sensors, new API function, new scenes, etc.

V-REP is the Swiss army knife among #robot simulators: you won't find a #simulator with more functions, features, or more elaborate APIs.

The robot simulator V-REP, with integrated development environment, is based on a distributed control architecture: each object/model can be individually controlled via an embedded script, a plugin, a ROS node, a remote API client, or a custom solution. This makes V-REP very versatile and ideal for multi-robot applications. Controllers can be written in C/C++, Python, Java, Lua, Matlab, Octave or Urbi.

V-REP is used for fast algorithm development, factory automation simulations, fast prototyping and verification, robotics related education, remote monitoring, safety double-checking, etc.

V-REP simulation ( www.coppeliarobotics.com ) showing an octree being built step-by-step. Octrees, as well as point clouds, meshes and points, can be used for collision detection, minimum distance calculation, and proximity sensor detection. Octrees and point clouds will be available in release 3.3.1.

A new control mechanism based on impendence control theory, which will simultaneously manage the position and the force of a robot arm. Given a clearly defined maximum force limitation by its human associate, such a robot will extrapolate optimized movements, thus making it a safe and autonomous assistant while maintaining a high level of accuracy.

Large, heavy, static, and dangerous to humans – forget how you’ve pictured robots so far. Our researchers in China are developing a so-called data glove that helps train robots by teaching them smooth hand movements and gentle gestures. http://sie.ag/1Xc2vNQ

Robot is set-up to show different collisions avoidance strategies if #robotic arm cooperate and interact with humans. Furthermore, various control modes are used and the different behaviors that result from these modes are shown. The Reflexxes Motion Libraries provide a set of on-line trajectory generation algorithms, such that deterministic and immediate reactions can be realized. These algorithms are fed by a collision avoidance system that uses the depth images of a Microsoft Kinect device. The system is very robust and highly reactive. Furthermore, jerk-limited continuous robot motions are guaranteed in any case.

+UC Berkeley  Cloud Robotics has potential to improve #robot performance in at least five ways: 1) Big Data: indexing a global library of images, maps, and object data, 2) Cloud Computing: parallel grid computing on demand for statistical analysis, learning, and motion planning, 3) Open-Source / Open-Access: humans sharing code, data, algorithms, and hardware designs, 4) Collective Robot Learning: robots sharing trajectories, job planning, and outcomes, and 5) Crowdsourcing and call centers: offline and on-demand human guidance for evaluation, learning, and error recovery. Ken Goldberg is a Professor of #Industrial #Engineering and Operations Research (IEOR) at the University of California, Berkeley as introduced by Matei Ciocarlie. He also holds an appointment in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, San Francisco. He is an artist, writer, inventor, and researcher in the field of robotics and automation.

Placing a #vision system or other sensor in the #gripper hand of a #robot has become feasible as sensors have grown smaller and more power-efficient
 
Before a robot's arm can reach into a tight space or pick up a delicate object, the robot needs to know precisely where its hand is.

That's important for a number of applications, including inspection tasks, says Matthew Klingensmith, a Ph.D. student in robotics at CMU. He's part of a team which is using a camera attached to a robot's hand to rapidly create a 3-D model of the real world.

+University of Washington Computer Science & Engineering  Vikash Kumar's developments with the ADROIT Manipulation Platform along the lines of hardware capabilities and #robotic   manipulation behaviors. Researchers in UW’s Movement Control Laboratory have built a dexterous robot hand that learns from experience. In contrast to a typical robotics application in which each individual movement must be programmed, the autonomous learning system developed by #UWCSE Ph.D. student Vikash Kumar, CSE and Applied Mathematics professor Emo Todorov, and CSE professor Sergey Levine enables the robot to refine its movements as it practices a task.

:) this is what I just happened to post about on Medium as well. It's such a good idea.
