Festo partners with several international companies and universities to develop the capabilities of FLAIROP – Federated Learning for Robot Picking
The base policy and adaptation module are run asynchronously and at different frequencies, which allows RMA to operate robustly with only a small onboard computer.
Created at NASA’s JPL, the open-source flight software called F Prime powered humanity’s first interplanetary helicopter.
NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover completed its first drive using its auto-navigation feature, which allows it to avoid rocks and other hazards without input from engineers back on Earth.
Teleoperation platforms must have built-in safety protocols that account for remote operator error.
Waymo provides a glimpse at its SimulationCity software environment that it uses to test and validate driving algorithms.
SVT Robotics releases a connector between SVT’s SOFTBOT Platform and the RightHand Robotics RightPick 3 item-handling robot system.
NVIDIA releases the Isaac Sim version of its NVIDIA Omniverse simulation software, including new features to help train machine learning models.
rideOS’ routing and fleet management technology will enable Gopuff innovate faster, power multi-modal deliveries, and reduce delivery times.
KUKA releases version 4.0 of the KUKA.sim virtual robot simulation software. The release includes advanced programming features along with new safety simulation capabilities.
Creating ‘commercial-grade’ software that is robust enough to be deployed in thousands of robots in the real world, at prices that make that scale achievable, is the next challenge for the industry.
634AI selects the RTI Connext databus for the real-time communications between AMRs operating under its MAESTRO solution.
The robotics industry has long been fragmented. Heck, Bill Gates mentioned it back in 2008. Progress has been made, sure, but a lack of common standards and platforms, as well as programming complexity, remain major hurdles for the industry. A tour of READY Robotics‘ headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, however, showcases just the opposite. The robotics…
Real Time Innovations releases the latest version of its remote operation software platform RTI Connext 6.1.
Some new features enabled by ROS 2 include decreased latency, improved security, and more flexibility with middleware configuration.
The DARPA Subterranean Challenge enters the homestretch as the final 8 teams are announced for the last competition event.
For more than ten years, the Robot Operating System (ROS) has been enabling innovators around the world to develop robot platforms and applications. Through its collection of tools, libraries, and conventions, ROS simplifies the task of creating complex and robust robot behavior. Ubuntu has been the primary platform for ROS from the very beginning. That…
KUKA Robotics launches a new open source operating system called KUKA iiQKA.OS – designed from its core, to be easy to use. The new OS will initially be available on KUKA collaborative robots.
Developing a robot is more complicated than a standard embedded software implementation. There are unique challenges to overcome to ensure that a robot will meet its requirements, function as intended, and be delivered on time and on budget. The teams developing robotics software must coordinate well within their own team while also working in parallel…
Goldberg on Ambi Robotics’ Sim2Real technology, how Dex-Net is powering its robots, lessons learned over the years, and the challenges of universal grasping.
There seems to be a renewed focus on automating the grueling task of unloading trailers. Boston Dynamics revealed its Stretch mobile manipulator at the end of March, while Memphis-based robotics startup Dextrous Robotics recently emerged from stealth with its Chopstick system. Dextrous co-founder Evan Drumwright discussed the system in the RoboBusiness Direct session “Advances in…
Open Robotics released the latest version of its Gazebo simulator, called Edifice. The release includes the latest rendering features, as well as new sensors and controllers.
