Milking robot systems are amazing. As the price points for milk remain low, it is touger for dairy farmers to stay in business. Deluxe milking robot aytomation systems allow the cow to determine its own milking time which leads to a healthier herd with better milk production.
Solid story, Ann. There certainly are a lot of opportunities for service robots. In manufacturing, I wonder if another factor is the number of robotic mechanisms and arms that are being designed into the machine themselves rather than a robot as a standalone system. Thanks.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
