Dassault Systèmes is planning to launch an integrated 3D printing platform in the next few months, according to a senior executive at the company.
In an interview with RoboticsAndAutomationNews.com, Philippe Bartissol, vice president, industrial equipment industry, Dassault Systèmes, says the the initiative will be announced in the next two months.
The initiative will “address the complete ecosystem of 3D printing”, says Bartissol, adding: “It will not be only one customer using our platform extensively.
Kinema Systems claims to have launched what it describes as “the world’s first deep learning 3D vision system for industrial robots”.
A large part of the world’s commerce moves in boxes arranged on pallets. Depalletizing boxes in warehouses, distribution centers and factories is a difficult task that has become more challenging with changing demographics and an increase in product mix.
Yamaha Motor says its internet of things automation system enables integrated control of multiple robot products with one controller

Three ways entrepreneurs can bring the rate of progress we’ve seen in computing and communication to car tech.
Throughout much of early-to-mid 20th century, cutting-edge design and technology found its way into cars. Following the invention of the integrated circuit, chips and bits started displacing pistons and gears in the hearts and minds of engineers.
Silicon Valley’s gravitational force began stripping Motor City of its talent, compounding with the success of every tech startup. Not long after the birth of the Internet, Silicon Valley experienced unencumbered prosperity, while Detroit struggled to hold on for dear life.
Automatic guided vehicles that optimize their own routes. Warehouses that automatically recognize missing inventory and order refills in real time.

Taylor Morrison, a US homebuilder and developer, and Legrand, a high-performance network infrastructure hardware company, have partnered to “revolutionize household automation” through the launch of Taylor Morrison’s newest high-tech product, the Interactive Home 2.0.
The new Interactive Home 2.0 features Intuity Home Intelligence, an intuitive home automation system by Legrand. With its in-wall interface and applications for tablets and mobile devices, users can effortlessly control their comfort, security, lighting and entertainment within their homes.
Schunk is about to launch a new robotic arm for autonomous assistance robots which the company is apparently finding difficult to explain.
“How could one describe a multi-functional handling solution that operates autonomously in a human environment?” asks Schunk in a statement revealing the new product.
Schunk, which claims to be “the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems”, presented the anthropomorphic gripper arm and said it is designed for intuitive virtual programming and widely differing successive gripping operations; it can also optionally be equipped to react to collisions.
