Today, we have robots building our cars (see BMW's plant in Germany that uses robotic arms to assemble cars). Robots also work at warehouses (see Kiva Systems' pick-pack-ship solution), package our food (see Bosch Packaging Machines' delta robots), or work on production lines (see RG Luma Automation's Staubli robots tending three-off presses).
Jeffrey Harrow, principal technologist at the Harrow Group, in "I Am Robot and I Am Home," says robots have gone beyond the "traditional" factory robots, and now vacuum our carpets and guide us in traffic jams. Read this article at www.controlglobal.com/i-am-robot.html to find out more.We also inspire children to be robot builders. FIRST holds annual competitions, where children form teams to design and build robots that can perform tasks. This year's FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) challenge was "Rebound RumbleSM," where teams competed to score as many basketballs points as possible during a two-minute, 15-second match. See this year's winning teams and video of their robots at www.controlglobal.com/frc-2012.html.
Lastly, if you need a robot, we can help you find one. Maybe you need to sell your current robot. In either case, you should check our industry link "Used-Robots." Buy or sell a used robot at www.controlglobal.com/used-robots.html.
