Despite Recent Advancements, Robots Still Limited

Posted March 12, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Experts estimate that programming consumes as much as 60% of robotic deployment budgets. In an effort to reduce programming time and improve overall versatility, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced a competition comprising task-related challenges common to industry. Goals of the simulation-based competition include improved failure identification and recovery, advancement of automated planning technologies, plug-and-play designs, and the ability to operate in fixtureless environments. Winners will be unveiled at this summer's IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering, Fort Worth, TX.
