Black Diamond Advanced Technology has been selected by Carnegie Robotics, LLC to develop an Operator Control Unit (OCU) for ground robotic command and control applications.
ABB, the leading power and automation group, has deployed a tailored technological solution to transform Boliden AB’s Garpenberg mine in central Sweden into one of the most-efficient and productive mines in the world. Autonomous processes stretching a kilometer underground are unified in a single system driving efficiency and productivity to the next level.
TechNavio, a tech-focused research firm, has published a new report on the Global Underwater Robotics Market, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.92 percent from 2014-2019.
When Adam Steltzner, PhD, NASA’s engineer in charge of the Mars Curiosity rover sky-crane landing, was on the Washington University in St. Louis campus recently to deliver an Assembly Series talk, a group of undergraduates was eager to meet him and talk about engineering and robots.
Metso has opened a new service center in the City of Lappeenranta, Finland. It was officially inaugurated on October 24, 2013, in connection with a customer seminar and in the presence of about 120 guests.
Neptec Technologies Corp., a leading developer of innovative 3D robotic vision products, today announced the successful demonstration of its OPAL-360 obscurant-penetrating LiDAR scanner at Barrick Gold Corp.’s Goldstrike mine in Nevada.
Carnegie Mellon University has signed a five-year master agreement with one of the world's largest mining companies, London-based Anglo American PLC, to develop robotic technologies for mining.
Quantum International Corp. took a big step toward what is expected to be a very profitable alliance this week by preparing a term sheet for presentation to Clelland DataSciences, Inc. (CDS).
In the last few years, Navy scientists, along with research institutions around the world, have been engineering resilient robots for minesweeping and other risky underwater missions. The ultimate goal is to design completely autonomous robots that can navigate and map cloudy underwater environments— without any prior knowledge of those environments — and detect mines as small as an iPod.
U.S. robotics company iRobot has received a patent approval for a system that allows a robot to return autonomously to its operator if wireless communications fail. The patent is for the “retrotravese” technology that it has developed for its 510 PackBot. It is also the hundredth patent that the company had received for its robotic technologies.
