Clever Autonomy for Mobile Robots - KUKA Navigation Solution

Mobile heavy-duty platforms, transport systems for internal logistics or flexible production assistants: anyone looking for mobile robots or platforms will find what they need at KUKA. This video highlights how fully autonomous operation can be implemented, using autonomous navigation systems. The KUKA "mobility" portfolio offers a wide range of mobile systems with numerous variants for all conceivable dimensions. The Mecanum wheel system ensures maximum freedom of motion and is predestined for transporting even heavy loads with the utmost precision. The mobile platforms and transport systems from KUKA are available both with and without KUKA robots and for different sizes and payloads. In this way, they can be customized to meet many different customer requirements. In the aerospace and automotive industries and in many other branches of industry: it has never been simpler to integrate autonomous robots and mobile platforms quickly, precisely and reliably into cells and systems. The KUKA "mobility" portfolio also offers with omnidirectional mobile systems for internal logistics. When it comes to direct cooperation between humans and machines or between humans and mobile platforms, rigid boundaries are being dispensed with – both parties work hand in hand, paving the way for the fourth industrial revolution: "Industry 4.0".

    Backdrivable Kinematically Redundant (6+3)-DOF Hybrid Parallel Robot – Part 1: Trajectory Control

    This video demonstrates the operation of a novel backdrivable kinematically redundant (6+3)-dof spatial hybrid parallel robot. This robot has a very large translational and orientational workspace. Redundancy is used to completely alleviate singularities and to operate a gripper without having to mount any actuator on the moving platform. The parallel hybrid architecture yields high dynamic capabilities, as demonstrated in the last part of the video.

    Royal Marines Jet Suit Boarding Ex

    Thanks to Royal Marines LLC for setting up a very successful exercise testing the capability of the Gravity Jet Suit to support RM boarding ops. Huge effort from 42cdo, 47cdo, HMS Tamar, Qinetiq and DSTL. With a rich family history in Aviation, former Oil Trader & Royal Marines Reservist, Richard Browning, founded pioneering Aeronautical Innovation company, Gravity Industries in March 2017 to launch human flight into an entirely new era. The Gravity #JetSuit uses over 1000bhp of Jet Engine power combined with natural human balance to deliver the most intense and enthralling spectacle, often likened to the real life Ironman. Gravity has to date been experienced by over a billion people globally and covered by virtually every media platform. The Gravity Team, based in the UK, have delivered over 100 flight & Speaking events across 30 countries including 5 TED talks. "The team and I are delivering on the vision to build Gravity into a world class aeronautical enginee

    Homemade Axial Jet Engine

    This is a short video showing you my high school science project. It's a pretty simple design based of the most simple jet engines. Unfortunately I've lost most of the photos i took of the interior. Note that the engine never became totally self sustaining so if you're going to replicate this design you might want to change some of the design features. Engine builders: Mattis and John. Photographer: Carl and Jesper. Source: Mattis Berntsson YouTube channel video .

    Mechatronic hand

    I'm building a new hand, and I thought that it might be interesting to document a portion of the approximately 600 hours that it takes to design and prototype such a device. That way, when the 3 to 4 people a day that are requesting that I build a custom device for their loved one, they can have a small idea of what would go into fulfilling such a request. By the way, I finally started a Patreon a couple of months ago, and a few of my subscribers found it and started backing me! Thank you so much to: Jamie Cann, Joe, Derek Shaw, Petr Khromov, Giel Berden, Travis Rice, Mathew Nelson, and Finley JH Barrass for supporting me! Source: Ian Davis YouTube channel video .
