Mech-Mind Robotics, which combines 3D vision, deep learning, and motion planning to make industrial automation more intelligent, has raised nearly $15 million to accelerate development and marketing.
Einride said NVIDIA’s Orin processors will help make the next generation of its autonomous Pods for freight transport safer and more functional.
AutoX said its RoboTaxi fleet in downtown Shenzhen is the first to be deployed without accompanying safety/backup drivers in China.
Ayanna Howard, the first female dean of Ohio State University’s College of Engineering, discusses her new book on Sex, Race, and Robotics.
GrAI Matter Labs, which raised a $14 million venture round, is enabling low latency edge computation for many robotic applications.
Increasingly, artificial intelligence systems known as deep learning neural networks are used to inform decisions vital to human health and safety, such as in autonomous driving or medical diagnosis. These networks are good at recognizing patterns in large, complex datasets to aid in decision-making. But how do we know they’re correct? Alexander Amini and his…
Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, said that combining neural networks with motion-planning software will give robots the speed and skill to assist in warehouse environments.
The IEEE surveyed 2,000 millennials with children worldwide and found growing acceptance of robotics for maintaining the healthcare and wellbeing of their families. U.S. respondents were more wary than averaage.
BIONIK Laboratories, which provides three InMotion therapeutic robots for neurological rehabilitation and the InMotion Connect data management system, is an example of how developers of assistive technology can work with hospitals.
OSARO is working to combine its AI software for piece picking with INNOTECH’s product expertise in a mobile robot to serve supply chains and manufacturing.
Panagiotis Tsiotras, an IEEE Fellow and Georgia Tech professor, describes some of his research into improving autonomy on the ground and in space and why it’s an exciting time to be a robotics student.
JAZZ Venture Partners led the $22 million Series A funding round for Robust.AI which is planning to expand platform development and early partnerships.
Kespry said its Kespry Perception Analytics cloud-based system is designed for industries including chemicals, pulp and paper, energy, food and beverage, and ports.
When using Jetson devices, Formant users can now enable real-time video and image analytics in the cloud and perform PII scrubbing at the edge, writes CEO Jeff Linnell in this column.
NVIDIA said its Jetson Nano 2GB kit is designed to enable students and developers to affordably get started with AI, robotics, and IoT.
Princeton’s REVISE uses statistics to inspect datasets for biases along three dimensions: object-based, gender-based and geography-based.
Toyota Research Institute demonstrated its research into machine learning, simulation, and manipulation in a virtual open house, which included a ceiling-mounted kitchen gantry robot.
Hailo said its new M.2 and Mini PCIe modules, which use the Hailo-8 AI processor, will make it easier for developers to build high performance into edge devices than other current systems.
Forests cover 30 percent of the Earth’s landmass, but that number is on the decline. Despite forests’ crucial role in conserving wildlife and processing carbon dioxide, many are threatened by deforestation and wildfires. Complicating these threats is the lack of quantitative information that foresters and environmental researchers need for making important decisions to preserve forests.…
OrionStar said its new Robotic Coffee Master has two six-axis arms and relies on 3,000 hours of machine learning to simulate master-level brewing techniques.
Omnirobotic, which has been developing a “cognitive engine” for general manufacturing, raised $5 million toward further developing and commercializing its Omniscanner and Omnibrain AI platform.
AI provider NVIDIA said it plans to acquire chipmaker Arm from SoftBank for about $40 billion and expand research and development facilities in the U.K. for a new supercomputer.
