ROBOTIC OCEAN CONDITIONER - This vessel is designed to operate in fleets to target ocean waste before it settles on the ocean floor where nobody can recover it. There is nothing like it in existence today, though other ideas for trapping plastic waste are being developed, such as that of Boyan Slat and the Seabin. SeaVax is made more cost effective in operational terms with AmphiMax versatility that slashes the cost of production and servicing by using a portable dock for assembly, launch and servicing.
Robotics is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering and science that includes mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, and others. Robotics deals with the design, construction, operation, and use of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing.
Robots are essential for exploring inhospitable regions, including underwater on earth and outer space, where man cannot go (at present).
RASPBERRY - The Raspberry pi micro computer was originally designed in Cambridge and manufactured in Wales in the UK. Micro computers like this are suitable for controlling the hydraulic actuators for larger robotic machines. We are using them for our experimental energy harvesting rig that is being mounted on a Ford Transit (April 2019).
These technologies are used to develop machines that can substitute for humans. Robots can be used in any situation and for any purpose, but today many are used in dangerous environments (including bomb detection and de-activation), manufacturing processes, or where humans cannot survive. Robots can take on any form but some are made to resemble humans in appearance. This is said to help in the acceptance of a robot in certain replicative behaviors usually performed by people. Such robots attempt to replicate walking, lifting, speech, cognition, and basically anything a human can do. Many of today's robots are inspired by nature, contributing to the field of bio-inspired robotics known as animatronics.
ROBOT CONFERENCE - Collaborative Robots and Advanced Vision are two of the most cutting-edge topics in automation today. At this two day conference you will explore a range of current advancements in both fields focusing on technology, applications, safety implications, and human impacts. Whether you're looking to implement your first ever automation system, take your current system past its limitations, grow your understanding of the available technology, or learn more about the market in general, this conference is right for you!
The concept of creating machines that can operate autonomously dates back to classical times, but research into the functionality and potential uses of robots did not grow substantially until the 20th century. Throughout history, it has been frequently assumed that robots will one day be able to mimic human behavior and manage tasks in a human-like fashion. Today, robotics is a rapidly growing field, as technological advances continue; researching, designing, and building new robots serve various practical purposes, whether domestically, commercially, or militarily. Many robots are built to do jobs that are hazardous to people such as defusing bombs, finding survivors in unstable ruins, and exploring mines and shipwrecks and disposing of nuclear waste. Robotics is also used in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) as a teaching aid.
