Autocalibration(TM) method for intelligent control of robots reduces set-up and replacement time for wafer-handling robots by giving them the intelligence to "teach themselves." A robot controlled with this method moves to a coarse wafer placement, and then, using proprietary methods, fine-tunes the precise placement location. This keeps transport reliability high because robot action is based on real position information rather than the commanded tolerances of subjective operator-based teaching.

When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
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.
