Let’s face it. The public has a surface-level understanding of the robotic engineering industry. Thanks to the media, and some healthy imagination, we envision a new, progressive industry filled with modern engineers, hovercrafts and automated toys. But the robotic engineering industry is neither new, nor occupied by a new breed of engineers (at least not yet). For high school students preparing for STEM careers in this field, it’s important to separate the facts from the fiction and dive into the core of the matter. Here are few things to know: Read More

If you think of the food industry as a wheel, safety is the hub and its spokes are: production, cleanliness and labor. The rim tying these spokes together ought to be automation because it can directly improve each one. Here’s how:

Boosting Production...

Quickly grabbing and orienting a random part from a bin has never been an easy task for a robot. So it often falls to humans to find and process parts. Whether the piece is a plastic handle for a tote or a part for a car or computer, the process is similar. While machine designers have tried to automate a lot of this work, fickle lighting conditions in factories and parts of varying shapes can pose a problem just thorny enough to stump most robots Read More
