Intel RealSense Camera Now Accessible to Robot Operating System (ROS) Developers
In most industrial settings, robots speak one language and the plants within which they work speak another.
ABB's Robotics business unit recently sought a more user-friendly tool to develop high-fidelity manipulator models that can be integrated with other software tools for simulation. Using MapleSim, engineers eliminated the need to derive and manipulate equations.

by Patrick Davison, Director of Standards Development, Robotic Industries Association: Last week, an unfortunate fatality involving an industrial robot and a worker occurred at a Volkswagen plant in Baunatal, Germany. The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) and its member companies express its deepest sympathies to the victim’s family, friends, and colleagues. According to news sources, the worker was part of a contracting crew responsible for setting up the robot, and was working inside the safeguarded space when the incident occurred. A second member of the contracting crew was standing outside of the safeguarded space and was not harmed. The international media response to the incident was aggressive, swift, and expounded on topics that were not relevant to the incident. AWashington Post article referenced the dangers of Artificial Intelligence and posed the question, “Should the world kill killer robots before it’s too late?” In another story, a Financial Times journalist with a name similar to a popular character in The Terminator franchise started a social media frenzy with a tweet. A video from Ireland expounds on random tweets regarding the incident with backdrop footage of the Honda ASIMO robot and manual automotive operations. Also, according to this article on an automotive news and gossip site, a Times of India article posted a photo of a gun-wielding toy robot beside the story. Cont'd...

Single Pair Ethernet enables high speed communication up to 1 Gb/s in a cost-effective solution that reduces complexity, space and weight by transmitting over two wires rather than four of eight. In robotics and industrial applications, this weight reduction enables faster movements and lowered energy consumption while enabling data and power up to 50W over a single twisted pair. TE Connectivity is a proud founding partner in the Industrial Partner Network who is driving the adoption of Single Pair Ethernet technology.
