OSHBot | Penguin-Bot | Sword-Fighting Robots


Hi guys, and welcome to my weekly Robot Update. This is where I do a
round up of what is going on in the Robot news around the world, so
stay tuned. Hi Guys, I’m Philip English from robophil.com, and welcome to the
Robot Weekly update number 3. Autonomous Retail Service Robot Lowe’s Innovation Labs is introducing Autonomous Retail Service
Robot (ARSR) technology to amplify the shopping experience for
customers and employees. The concept will debut during the 2014 holiday season when two
OSHbot retail service robots will be installed in an Orchard Supply
Hardware store in midtown San Jose. On all retail service robot ,you have Natural Language Processing Autonomous Store Navigation Real Time Product Information 3D Scanning Remote Connectivity Inventory Management Collision Avoidance Standing 5 ft (152 cm) high and weighing 85 lb (38.5 kg) OSHbot looks like a white pillar with a couple of flat screens
stuck on front and back. In its “head” is a 3D scanner that can detect and identify a human body standing in front of it and
a smart laser sensor, along with a second in the base, for collision avoidance. To tackle the task at hand, the robot features wireless networking, voice recognition product information and location inventory integration and design prototyping. When first turned on it can spend an evening roaming the store while
using the scanning technology created for the Lowe’s Holoroom home improvement simulator  to build up a map for
autonomous navigation In addition, its 3D camera can identify objects for customers and help locate them. Lowe’s points out that the OSHbot provides information in real time about products and inventory and, being, a sales
robot, pushes store promotions. It speaks several languages and can connect to live employees if enquiries are beyond the robot’s ability. It can also help with inventory management allow employees to communicate between stores. Penguin-bot Meet penguin-bot. Remote-controlled rovers disguised as penguins
could reduce stress to wild animals during behavioural research A group of European scientists working together with a UK wildlife filmmaker have developed a remote-controlled robot rover disguised
as a penguin in order to intimately study colonies of shy Emperor
penguins in Antarctica. Sending in a robot penguin armed with scanning equipment causes far less stress to the actual penguins than they feel when being observed by humans, researchers said. When approached by a human, a penguin’s heart rate increased by an average of 35 beats per minute – a sign that the creature is stressed. Therefore, the researchers decided to disguise the robot rover as a baby penguin The penguin rover helped to get close enough to scan the micro-chipped birds. It took five different versions to create a chick that the penguins were not afraid of. The
birds’ stress levels plummeted so much so that the penguins even took the robot baby
under their wings. Sword-fighting robots a recent exhibition, ABB Robotics had two of there robots doing
katana sword fighting ABB is a global leader in power and automation technologies. Based in Zurich, Switzerland, the company employs 145,000
people and operates in approximately 100 countries. The firm’s shares are traded on the stock exchanges of Zurich,
Stockholm and New York. ABB’s business is comprised of five divisions that are in turn organized in relation to the customers and industries they
serve. it is particularly proud of its record for innovation widely recognized through countless awards and scientific accolades. Many of the technologies we take for granted today, from ultra efficient high-voltage direct current power
transmission to a revolutionary approach to ship propulsion, were developed or commercialized by ABB. Today ABB is the largest supplier of industrial motors and drives, the largest provider of generators to the wind industry
and the largest supplier of power grids in the world. That’s it guys, for a weekly world Robot News, I am your host Philip English If you like this weekly robot update and want to see more of the latest Robot
