MassRobotics AMR Interoperability Working Group, comprised of AMR vendors, engineers and AMR end-user companies, has published a consortium-built standard to guide robotic automation interoperability.
New motion dataset offers object trajectories and corresponding 3D maps for over 100,000 segments, each 20 seconds long and mined for interesting interactions with cars, people, and more.
Amazon launched SageMaker Reinforcement Learning (RL) Kubeflow Components, an open-source toolkit designed to help manage robotics workflows. SageMaker RL is designed to make it faster to develop machine learning capabilities for everything from perception to controls and optimization. Amazon SageMaker is a service built on Amazon’s two decades of experience developing real-world machine learning applications.…
Training data is collected in Unity and used to train a deep neural network that predicts the pose of a cube. This model is then deployed in a simulated robot pick-and-place task.
For tens of thousands of students globally, over the last two decades, a part of their education involved an open-source software toolkit known as the Robotics Toolbox for MATLAB. This started as a modest collection of tools to help me in my PhD research in the early 1990s. It leveraged MATLAB, at that time a…
Real-Time Innovations said that robotics developers can now use RTI Connext DDS scalability and productivity tools within the ROS 2 ecosystem.
The Robotics Handbook focuses on the hottest global robotics sectors and analyses key trends enabling the development of robotics systems.
Energid Technologies’ Actin software is helping Schilling Robotics’ GEMINI remotely operated underwater vehicle with more sophisticated manipulation.
While many of the ROS 1 to ROS 2 ports basically amount to a find-and-replace of the various ROS interfaces and CMake directives, navigation got a fairly extensive re-architecture.
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.
