News briefs for the week take a look at new automation to help productivity gains in construction both in mobile and assistive robotics, robots as lifeguards for grain bins, factory robots retrofitted rather than purchased new, Canada’s amazing gains in self-driving trucks, and an Australian couple looking to make their agrobots world leaders.

新的安全帽建造者滚动

While every other industry has seen productivity gains over the last 50 years, some by large orders of magnitude,why does construction continue to lag behind?Lack of automation is one gaping oversight.

baubot400最近,传出来的破坏性力量to the construction industry, like the well-known SAM (Semi-Automated Mason) that can lay 3,000 bricks a day.

最兴趣的添加之一是最近引进了来自维也纳,奥地利维也纳的多才多艺移动机器人的BAUBOTPrintstones,从维也纳技术大学分拆。由于公司在其网站上说,他们出局了“改变建设的未来”......以自2017年以来一直在建立移动机器人。

BAUBOT是该方向的重要产品。BAUBOT移动机器人不仅具有运输重载(超过一吨材料),铺设砖和挤出混凝土的能力;而且,随着其机器人臂(82英寸伸展),可以砂碎片,切割,钻头,并使用抽吸特性将重物升高到正确的位置。开始费用:180,000美元。

This robot always has your back

随着“私营行业雇主在2019年报告280万非职业工作场所 - 与建筑工地,特别是脆弱的机器人快速即将到来的解决方案:外骨骼。似乎没有公司正在努力 -wearablerobots600预防前骨骼更严重sarcos机器人. The company has a website that looks like a video game, but it’s all real.

SARCOS GUARDIAN XO EXOSKELELON公司标签为“今年的可能性胜利。“我们的全身动力外骨骼增强了操作员实力而不限制运动自由,以提高生产力,同时大大减少伤害。”

Next year, Sarcos will follow with mid-2022, Guardian XT highly dexterous force feedback industrial tele-operated robot.

Both exoskeletons will round out the firm’s commercial lineup, with the aim of delivering a full suite of robots capable of performing physically demanding work that requires human-like skill, dexterity, and range of motion.”

谷物箱的机器人救生员

谷物箱子可以成为农民的危险场所。超过400吨谷物的平均谷物箱就像Quicksand的海洋,总是准备好吸引农民到他或她的死亡。

grain-bins350Zack Hunnicutt’s wife makes him check in every time he enters or exits a bin. His seven grain bins have a total storage capacity of about 500,000 bushels.

通过进入谷物垃圾箱来消除丛生或腐烂的谷物,每年数千名农民和商业谷物处理人员都会冒着生命。在谷物中被困大约五秒钟。22秒后,一个完全受损的人对生存的浓度很少。2019年,美国中有38种籽粒夹带;23是致命的。

进入谷物象鼻虫 - 来自内布拉斯加州的26磅机器人JLI Roboticsthat uses “auger-based propulsion to move across the top of grain to address several safety issues including breaking up crusts, leveling bins, doing inspections, and helping with [farmer] extractions.”

According to Chad Johnson, whose father founded the company: “We have created a robot that will fundamentally change how grain bins are managed,” Johnson says. “In the next five to seven years, we believe nearly every farmer will adopt some sort of grain bin robot.”

Don’t buy new. Retrofit with a robot

United Grinding,迈阿密堡哦,拥有新的磨削机客户的新产品。不要买一个新的研磨机。让联合对现有研磨机的机器人招标进行改装。

当客户选择重建或再制造服务联合磨削的服务时,就较旧的沃尔特赫勒尔座电源系列工具磨床说,他们现在可以选择无缝安装新的高级自动化技术进入改装重建研磨机机器。曼联磨他们取代ori说ginal gantry beam-type loaders with faster, more productiveFANUC LR Mate 200irobots, which are the same robots now featured on all the new on brand new model WALTER HELITRONIC machines.

“In addition to speed, the new robots handle an increased number of workpieces/tools, are more compact and consume less energy. They also support the latest WALTER HELITRONIC Tool Studio and Robot Manager software that allows users to load multiple trays with various workpiece diameters for lights out unattended production.”

Best of all, a rebuilt grinding machine costs roughly 75 percent less than new equipment. In short, don’t buy new. The old machine will do just fine.

自驾车,加拿大风格!

两个小加拿大公司击败了像GM和FORD的大男孩谈到自主卡车吗?看起来那样。到目前为止,较少的钱。

媒体被称为:一流的世界自主货运技术

加拿大轮胎公司. and Toronto-based startupNuPort Robotics Inc., an autonomous trucking company, who bills itself as Canada's First Autonomous Trucking Company, have partnered with the Ontario government to invest $3 million on an automated heavy-duty trucking project.

nurobot.The self-driving truck technology provides “运输解决方案对于中英里,短途班车在每天的分销中心,仓库和终端之间进行半拖拉机拖车。“

“The trucks are currently transporting goods between a Canadian Tire distribution center in the Greater Toronto Area and nearby rail terminals within a 20 kilometer radius, and early results are promising,” said Raghavender Sahdev, CEO of NuPort Robotics.

“该项目的目的是开发一个系统,该系统将传统卡车与驾驶员融入自动驾驶仪功能,导致最有效的驾驶方式和增加安全性。传感器作为“安全茧”作为覆盖盲点,防止事故,最终结果是峰值燃油效率,意味着碳排放量降低,以及整体更优越的交通经验的峰值驾驶性能。“

Aussie agrobots looking to dominate

Andrew and Jocie Bate'sSwarmFarm Robotics有十四名Agrobots目前在果园工作,棉花和谷物属性以及在草坪农场。很快南澳大利亚葡萄园也将有一个削减草,喷洒杂草,以及检测和杀死蜗牛。

Fourteen robots are way not enough for this Australian couple. They have partnered with ag-tech venture capital firm顽强的企业to raise $4.5 million in a push “to lead the world in the production of agricultural robots.” Tall order!

Jamie Grant, Queensland cotton farmer, has two. Grant says has cut his chemical use by nearly 80 per cent since he started using the robots. "This is good for the environment and good for the longevity of the chemicals because we're taking out small weeds, and we're not building resistance to chemicals," he said.

他说,当杂草出现时,“我的农场从来没有清洁过。他的眼睛不能匹配磨练的相机,在微小的杂草上磨练,防止他称之为使用珍贵的土壤水分的”大杂草杂草“。

“贝特认为,他的低预算初创公司在全球农业机械巨头之前推动,因为他的团队与他密切合作,找到了对他粮食财产的土壤压实和杂草抵抗问题的解决方案。”

As the couple put it: “The way robots can be used is only limited by what can be mounted on the frame. "A robot with one use is a one-trick pony. Our robots are a platform that's going to deliver the next wave of change in agriculture."
