Digital Hazard Prevention for Cobotic Workstations

Humans and robots are sharing workspace in more and more sectors, whether they be manufacturing, logistics or medicine. Safety plays a major role in this. Up to now, range-finders on robots have prevented severe impacts or crushing when collisions occur but these sensors do not function when humans and machines have to stand close to Read more about Digital Hazard Prevention for Cobotic Workstations[…]

Machine learning accelerate to discover new advanced materials

If everything moved 40,000 times faster, you could eat a fresh tomato three minutes after planting a seed. You could fly from New York to L.A. in half a second. And you’d have waited in line at airport security for that flight for 30 milliseconds. Thanks to machine learning, designing materials for new, advanced technologies Read more about Machine learning accelerate to discover new advanced materials[…]

6G technology will bring haptic internet, mobile edge computing and holographic communications

Imagine you’re a fisherman living by a lake with a rowboat. Every day, you row out on the calm waters and life is good. But then your family grows, and you need more fish, so you go to the nearby river. Then, you realize you go farther and faster on the river. You can’t take Read more about 6G technology will bring haptic internet, mobile edge computing and holographic communications[…]
