A Gripping Tale

2007-11-01: One of the keys to the advancement of robotics is the development of new and innovative grippers. Welcome to the future. Advancements in robotics are about doing more with less, and about copying human arm movements for maximum efficiency. But robots do more than human arms can – they lift more, faster and tirelessly. Greater flexibility, lighter weight materials, new technical advances in sensors, a finicky retail environment where purchasing managers are buying less but more variety (mixed palletizing), and a move into new industries like food processing (hygienic design) – these are some of the dominant trends in…

Rourkela girl invents ‘air bike’ – Bicycle without pedals can travel 60km on 10kg of compressed air

Bhubaneswar, Nov. 1: A 14-year-old girl from the state, Tejaswani Priyadarshani, has come up with an innovative bicycle that propels on air. Without pedals, the “air bike” can run up to 60km on just 10kg of compressed air pumped into a cylinder mounted on the bicycle carrier. The innovation holds importance at a time when world leaders are coming together to cut down on the use of fossil fuels derived from natural resources such as coal, oil, gas, petrol and diesel.   “Fossil fuels are produced from old and dry plants and animal remains. They are used in vehicles, industries…

Rapid prototyping & MVP development

Rapid Prototyping Rapid prototyping is a design process used to create an early working, interactive, and visual model of your martech solution. It consists of many traditional design products (e.g. wireframes), but also some new features that take it from being just a design to an interactive model. A rapid prototype consists of the following: Screen flows Wireframes Low-fidelity prototype High-fidelity prototype (including interactive components, e.g., buttons and navigational features)   The Benefits Of Rapid Prototyping 1. Bring your ideas to life. While screen flows and wireframes allow you to see your martech platform, an interactive rapid prototype allows you…

Internships may soon be a must for technical degrees

AICTE effort to make students more industry-ready Technical education institutions in India will soon have internships as a mandatory requirement for the award of degrees. The All-India Council for Technical Education — the regulator for maintaining norms and standards in technical education — has set the ball rolling to make internships a mandatory part of technical education in the country.   “For a beginning, we are asking institutions providing technical education to arrange for internships for 75% of their students. We will also help by trying to get industry bodies and MSMEs on board for this. The institutions can then…

The importance and uses of the educational robotics for the students

The robotics is the branch of the computer science, the mechanical engineering, and the electrical engineering that deals with the construction, the design, the operation and the application of robots as well as the computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing.   The educational robots strengthen  and support  the students skills, and they develop their knowledge through the creation, the design, the assembly and the operation of robots .   The educational robotics are very useful in learning that they improve the design and construction of creation which are given in the first instance and later mental form…

Why are schools obsessed with turning kids into robots?

Standardized tests aren’t the only way of measuring intelligence.   Anya Kamenetz is very clear when she says she didn’t set out to write about standardized testing. A 2014 New America fellow and lead education blogger at National Public Radio, she had already written two books about the future of education and wanted her next project to be about innovations in K-12 education. But as she began researching her new book, The Test: Why Our Schools are Obsessed with Standardized Testing—But You Don’t Have to Be, she found something surprising: Innovations weren’t at the center of the story for K-12….

How AR technology can help farmers stay relevant

Augmented reality(AR) and robotics are closely related . Both model their environment to some degree. Robotics uses that model to guide the behaviour of a machine , whereas AR uses it to provide an enhanced sensory experience to a human.   The exact nature of that enhanced experience is bounded only by available sensory, computational, and display (audio, haptic) hardware, and by how the data gathered can be usefully transformed into overlays that argument the natural perception of the human user. What is useful is a function of both the content of those overlays and the latency, how much lag…

Robotic Engineering: Scope in India

Let’s accept it. Robots have always fascinated us from our childhood. The entire idea of having someone else do the hard and mundane job with the help of the computer, while with sit back and relax is definitely interesting. However, with the development of technology and extensive research and experiments on robots, it has been found that the Robotics has much depth than can be seen. Much like the tip of the iceberg, the depth of which cannot be gauged with the naked eye. And the scope of opportunities with Robotic Engineering is also on the rise. Let’s take a…
