Robots can now pick up any object after inspecting it
Humans have long been masters of dexterity, a skill that can largely be credited to the help of our eyes. Robots, meanwhile, are still catching up.
World's first hearing aid with integrated sensors and AI
Livio AI is the world's first hearing aid to utilize integrated sensors and artificial intelligence and the first device to track physical activity and cognitive health as measured by hearing aid use in social situations.
They provide a gas sensing data analytics subscription service, enabled by their proprietary CNT chemiresistive gas sensors, to analyze and detect multi-gases with high selectivity in complex environments
Blue Spark Technologies
Batteries from Blue Spark Technologies are being used in sensor based and battery assisted passive (BAP) RFID labels, in addition to powered cosmetic patches. Recent innovations include a new printed zinc anode.
Computer models could replace animal testing
A study suggests that advanced algorithms working from large chemical databases can predict a new chemical's toxicity better than standard animal tests. The computer-based approach could replace many animal tests commonly used during consumer product testing. It could also evaluate more chemicals than animal testing, a change that could lead to wider safety assessments.
Closing the loop for robotic grasping
Roboticists have developed a faster and more accurate way for robots to grasp objects, including in cluttered and changing environments, which has the potential to improve their usefulness in both industrial and domestic settings.
Amazon's drones vs. on-road electric delivery vans
The transportation industry is renewing itself from within finds new IDTechEx Research report "Electric Trucks and Delivery Vans 2018-2028".
Teaching chores to an artificial agent
For many people, household chores are a dreaded, inescapable part of life that we often put off or do with little care. But what if a robot assistant could help lighten the load?
Autonomous mobile robots: more diversity than first meets the eye
Autonomous mobility, in the general public's eye, is now synonymous with cars. Whilst this might be the largest ultimate prize, it is by no means the only commercial manifestation of this technology. Indeed, as the IDTechEx Research report New Robotics and Drones 2018-2038: Technologies, Forecasts, Players demonstrates, numerous autonomous mobile robots are being commercialized in applications where there is (a) a clear commercial purpose and (b) a more structured and predictable environment.
Geek+ is a warehouse and logistics robot manufacturer and service provider. It started operations in late 2015.
