Slideshow: Great Space Rovers
The Canadian Space Agency, makers of the International Space Station's 30-year robotic Canadarm project, is working on lunar and Mars robot rovers.
Video: Robot Turns Your Dreams Into Art
Ever wondered what your nightly tossing, turning, and snoring would look like if turned into art by a robot? Winners of a chance to stay at a European hotel chain will find out when their sleep pattern data is captured by sensors and painted by an ABB robot.
Robots Take Human Factor Out of Mining
Engineers have developed robots to take the human factor out of mining work and provide automation in the process, making it more efficient and less dangerous for the people involved.
Here are some of the top-paying jobs available to engineers as they grow in their careers.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Ford Motor Co. announced plans last week to join an ever-growing number of automakers who intend to produce fully autonomous vehicles in the next five years.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
