A robotic platform that operates using a precision system of cables is the next big thing in motion simulation.
Look at any sufficiently advanced CNC machine or robot, and you’ll notice something peculiar. On one hand, you have a computer running a true operating system for higher-level processing, be it vision or speech recognition, or just connecting to the Internet. Show More Summary
Delivery robots are not a new concept and several systems have been in operation in past decades. For example, delivery robots have been used in hospital environments to deliver medicine. In fact, delivery was on the first imagined practical applications for mobile robots. However, in the early days of robotics, the delivery robots were slow, […]
