Robot workers in the world

South Korea has the highest density of robot workers in the world Written by Rob Smith, Formative Content             publishing  by  the World Economic Forum. Robot workers have increased by 9% in Asia                                                      Image: Ford-India/Reuters/Babu Industrial robots are no longer preserved for a select few companies. And they aren’t so much coming: they have now fully arrived. Between 2015 and 2016, the average number of robot workers globally increased from 66 units per 10,000 human workers to 74. This density shows no signs of slowing according to data from the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), that reveals the number of installed industrial robots within the global manufacturing industry in 2016. South Korea had 631 robots per 10,000 human workers, the most of any nation. The […]

CES 2018-Toy Robot

Sony Has a New Aibo Robot Dog and It’s a Bit Disappointing By Vamien McKalin –January 15, 2018 Not everyone might remember the Aibo robot dog Sony released back in the 90s, 1999 to be exact. It garnered a lot of attention at the time, but the technology of the 90s wasn’t good enough for Aibo to go on to become a long-term product. That might change with the revival of this cute robot dog. At CES 2018, the Japanese company showed off the newest version of the Aibo, and you know what? It’s not half bad. Sony manages to put a lot of tech into this little product, which includes around 4,000 parts for it to act life-like. To make things interesting, the robot has a camera on its nose in order for it to recognize family members and friends. Additionally, it has another camera on its tail to map your […]

   1.  Will Artificial Intelligence eliminate Humans life?      By Electronics Media – November 25, 2017 This is a topic which is being discussed for a long time. Many scientists have raised several questions about it and everyone has different views on this. On this topic, 75-year-old famous scientist Stephen Hawking said that we are moving towards destruction with increasing AI Technology. According to Mr. Hawking, the way we are becoming dependent on artificial intelligence; the day is no longer when Artificial Intelligence will replace human beings. We should think about this topic because we are standing in the phase of technology where it is impossible to return back. Global population is increasing, which is a threat bell for us. According to Hawking, we are in danger of self-destruction for which we have to think and not only think we have to act. Prior to this, SpaceX CEO Elon […]

Slippage applications with snake robots

Studying slippage on pushing applications with snake robots  (뱀 로봇을 이용한 밀기 공부시 미끄러짐 연구) Abstract In this paper, a framework for analyzing the motion resulting from the interaction between a snake robot and an object is shown. Metrics are derived to study the motion of the object and robot, showing that the addition of passive wheels to the snake robot helps to minimize slippage. However, the passive wheels do not have a significant impact on the force exerted onto the object. This puts snake robots in a similar framework as robotic arms, while considering special properties exclusive to snake robots (e.g., lack of a fixed-base, interaction with the environment through friction). It is also shown that the configuration (shape) of the snake robot, parameterized with the polar coordinates of the robot’s COM, plays an important role in the interaction with the object. Two examples, a snake robot with two […]

multiple robot path planning algorithm

A new multiple robot path planning algorithm: dynamic distributed particle swarm optimization Asma Ayari* and Sadok Bouamama Abstract Multiple robot systems have become a major study concern in the feild of robotic research. Their control becomes unreliable and even infeasible if the number of robots increases. In this paper, a new dynamic distributed particle swarm optimization (D2 PSO) algorithm is proposed for trajectory path planning of multiple robots in order to find collision-free optimal path for each robot in the environment. The proposed approach consists in calculating two local optima detectors, LODpBest and LODgBest. Particles which are unable to improve their personal best and global best for predefined number of successive iterations would be replaced with restructured ones. Stagnation and local optima problems would be avoided by adding diversity to the population, without losing the fast convergence characteristic of PSO. Experiments with multiple robots are provided and proved effectiveness of […]

Soft pneumatic actuator, Soft gripper

Comparison of different soft grippers for lunch box packaging Zhongkui Wang†Email authorView ORCID ID profile, Mingzhu Zhu†, Sadao Kawamura and Shinichi Hirai           †Contributed equally    Robotics and Biomimetics    2017 4:10             ©  The Author(s) 2017           Abstract Automating the lunch box packaging is a challenging task due to the high deformability and large individual differences in shape and physical property of food materials. Soft robotic grippers showed potentials to perform such tasks. In this paper, we presented four pneumatic soft actuators made of different materials and different fabrication methods and compared their performances through a series of tests. We found that the actuators fabricated by 3D printing showed better linearity and less individual differences, but showed low durability compared to actuators fabricated by traditional casting process. Robotic grippers were assembled using the soft actuators, and grasping tests were performed on soft paper […]
