A busy commuter is ready to walk out the door, only to realize they’ve misplaced their keys and must search through piles of stuff to find them. Rapidly sifting through clutter, they wish they could figure out which pile was hiding the keys. Researchers at MIT have created a robotic system that can do just […]

Researchers investigate how to use training data from multiple companies without requiring participants to hand over sensitive company data.
The Robotics Week series consists of three digital events focused on autonomous mobile robots, cobots, and robotics engineering.
Universal Robots, PickNik, and Forschungszentrum Informatik released a beta version of a ROS 2 driver. The driver works across UR’s entire cobot line, including the newer e-Series cobots.
In this RoboBusiness Direct session moderated by MassRobotics Executive Director Tom Ryden, Motional CTO Laura Major and MIT Professor Julie Shah will discuss the future of human-robot interaction.
On Dec. 3, learn from a Robot Operating System expert at the Southwest Research Institute how do develop safe advanced automation. In addition, a DreamVu robotics expert will discuss how omnidirectional 3D vision can help disinfection robots.
Nicolaus Radford, co-founder, CEO, and CTO of Houston Mechatronics, will explain market opportunities for maritime robotics, using his own and his company’s experience as examples, in this RoboBusiness Direct presentation.
Digital transformation through automation is a strategic imperative for most companies. In his RoboBusiness Direct session, John McEleney, corporate vice president of strategy at PTC, will share his insights on how to design and develop robots in today’s digital era.
Despite economic hardships imposed by trade conflicts and the coronavirus pandemic, businesses can benefit from a digital manufacturing ecosystem, according to a RoboBusiness Direct speaker and Fictiv co-founder.
Conor Walsh, a recognized Harvard University professor, will share his insights on how soft, wearable robotics has evolved for industrial use in his RoboBusiness Direct session.
Grabbing some beer is now possible for packaging and palletizing robots, thanks to a new gripper from Piab. It has designed a vacuum system that can handle six-packs without damaging them.
Vecna Robotics has added noted MIT AI researcher Daniela Rus to its board of directors, shortly after appointing an executive to lead its autonomy division.

The ARMAR-6 humanoid robot, developed by the SecondHands consortium to help warehouse and factory workers, includes advances in machine learning, robotic manipulation, and human-machine interaction.
The Red Dot international design competition gave two awards to 6 River Systems’ Chuck mobile robot for “incomparable functionality.”
The Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum seeks speakers for its second conference, which will be in Boston in September.
Robotics Summit & Expo 2020 seeks industry leaders to share their expertise about developing the next generation of commercial-class robots.
Providing the right motor for small precision devices can be challenging, as New Scale Robotics found when it designed a parallel gripper for cobots.
When programming a robot to perform a task, it is very often the case that the robot motions involved must not cause the robot to collide with itself, its environment, its tooling and/or payload, or other robots. Robot programmers can either manually teach the robot trajectories/waypoints that move the robot and its end effector to […]
Many work processes would be almost unthinkable today without robots. But robots operating in manufacturing facilities have often posed risks to workers because they are not responsive enough to their surroundings. To make it easier for people and robots to work in close proximity in the future, Prof. Matthias Althoff of the Technical University of […]
