Rob thank you for bringing this important issue to light, I think it is in deed a great idea. As time goes there are some great changes with technology. This course will actually help many people to keep up to what they already know and new things as well. Since it is also online based, I think it will be more interactive and enjoyable course. This is the best avenue of exploring the robot world. @Jeniffer, it is very true that this is a cant-miss course.

I second the motion for a webinar on this. Getting a closer look would indeed allow us to see just how far we've come in regards to our mechanical friends.

FOCUS ON FUNDAMENTALS

Thank you Rob for the information.  As with any technology, the evolution of components and products keeps growing and growing.  I'm finding a refresher course in the fundamentals is almost needed each year just to stay up to date. I think robotic systems will only improve as time goes by with dramatic changes over the next decade.  We are a long way from "rise of the machines" but the advances are absolutely striking.  Thank you again.

Great idea for a webinar, Rob, and a good chance to look under the hood of the robots we're all writing about.

I can't think of a better topic than Robotics to start off our Focus on Fundamentals series. This is definitely a can't-miss course.

Latest Analysis
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
