Mass Production of Soft And Stretchable Electronics


This new technical paper titled "Scalable Manufacturing of Liquid Metal Circuits" was published by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University. The work presents "a novel technique for scalable and reproducible manufacturing of LM-based SSEs [soft and stretchable electronics] with integrated solid-state microelectronic components. The manufacturing technique is based on a selective metal-alloy... » read more

Robots Need More Human Skills


Robots need freedom. At least if they are working intelligently with humans. Out of the cage, into the open shop floor of a factory. However, with freedom, great challenges await robots, which previously only knew their small world behind protective grids and their highly specialized activities. Here they have to cope with humans who are vulnerable, sometimes unpredictable, but in any case al... » read more

Partial Abstract: "The aim of this roadmap is to present a snapshot of the present state of neuromorphic technology and provide an opinion on the chall... » read more

Risks Rise As Robotic Surgery Goes Mainstream


As robotic-assisted surgery moves into the mainstream, so do concerns about security breaches, latency, and system performance. In the operating room, every second is critical, and technology failures or delays can be life-threatening. Robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) has around for a couple decades, but it is becoming more prevalent and significantly more complex. The technology often include... » read more

The Kria™ KR260 Robotics Starter Kit is a Kria SOM-based development platform for robotics and factory automation applications. It enables roboticists and industrial developers without FPGA expertise to develop hardware accelerated applications for robotics, machine vision, industrial communications and control. Developers benefit with greater flexibility from native ROS 2 (Humble Hawksb... » read more

New Robots Require New Ways To Think About Processors


We’re on the cusp of a revolution in robots. After years of relatively moderate growth, sales of commercial and industrial robots are slated to grow by 25% to 35% per year over the next decade, according to Boston Consulting Group, and could reach $260 billion by 2030 to meet the demands of manufacturers, retailers and others to streamline supply chains, enhance safety and boost productivity.... » read more

Robots Become More Useful In Factories


Most people associate factory automation with large robotic machines, such as those that weld automobile chassis on assembly lines. But as prices drop and technology improves, robots are being deployed for smaller and more varied tasks, and they are getting better at all of them. Inside of factories, robots can significantly improve output, consistency, and reliability. They can work around ... » read more

Data Association Between Perception and V2V Communication Sensors


Abstract: "The connectivity between vehicles, infrastructure, and other traffic participants brings a new dimension to automotive safety applications. Soon all the newly produced cars will have Vehicle to Everything (V2X) communication modems alongside the existing Advanced Driver Assistant Systems (ADAS). It is essential to identify the different sensor measurements for the same targets (... » read more

Benchmarking Highly Parallel Hardware for Spiking Neural Networks in Robotics


Abstract: "Animal brains still outperform even the most performant machines with significantly lower speed. Nonetheless, impressive progress has been made in robotics in the areas of vision, motion- and path planning in the last decades. Brain-inspired Spiking Neural Networks (SNN) and the parallel hardware necessary to exploit their full potential have promising features for robotic applica... » read more

Development Of Distributed Intelligent Systems With The Robot Operating System


Networked robotic systems are increasingly prevalent. In addition to industrial robotics now firmly ensconced in manufacturing, applications are also being developed in the areas of logistics, medical technology, and even unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV). In general, robotic systems are still centrally controlled by a PLC based on statically planned tasks... » read more
