New robotic hand 'can feel' A team of scientists from Italy and Sweden has developed what is believed to be the first artificial hand that has feeling. It has been attached to the arm of a 22-year-old man who lost his own hand through cancer. Researchers say it works by connecting human nerve endings with tiny electronic sensors.

ABB Robotics - Picking and packing salami snacks High-speed ABB FlexPicker robots equipped with specially developed grippers are making sure that Peperami salamis are packaged at the highest cycle rates at Unilever's plant in Ansbach, Germany. The robots are fitted with triple grippers which are able to pick up three randomly positioned salami snacks one after the other from a conveyor belt in a one step process, and place them individually in a rollstock machine. The positioning and location data required comes from an upstream image processing system which is positioned to capture the information on the individual sausages and pass it on to a master computer. Unilever commissioned ABB Robotics partner, robomotion GmbH from Stuttgart, to plan and design the fully automated solution; and install and commission the entire system at Unilever within 10 days. "This high-speed technology is not only of interest in the foodstuffs sector, as it can be used anywhere where small items have to be handled at high speeds" says Andreas Wolf, a director of robomotion. Unilever's chief engineer, Carim Gad, concludes "With the new system, we're running the packaging machine at full capacity, giving us a performance increase of up to 25 percent compared with manual loading. The ability to cover peak loads is of particular interest. For example, in the run-up to the Football World Cup, special production shifts were operating at the weekend. This alone gave us a competitive edge, enabling us to deliver Peperamis to our customers on ...

ABB Robotics - Fanta Can Challenge- Level II - Superior Motion Control Superior motion control is the hallmark of all ABB industrial robots. In the first FANTA Can Challenge we set a test that none of our competitors could come close to. Now with the Level II challenge we have "raised the bar another notch" by introducing a THIRD robot & tightening the tolerances. The gap between the cans & pin is now only 1mm. And as always with ABB robots "What you program is what you get - AT ANY SPEED".

Robotic Liberation by PWP (VIC-20) Are machines going to take over the world? A "music video" completely performed by an unexpanded Commodore VIC-20 and a 1541 disk drive. Note that there are only 5120 bytes and 1024 nybbles of RAM available, and the total disk size of the demo is a mere 16 KB. No one had ever pushed VIC-20 programming this far before the new millennium. And don't forget: even the original Terminator was based on the 6502 microprocessor! More:
