How AI and Robotics are Used in the Welding Industry

In many industrial and construction applications, soldering metal to metal is an essential process. The use of artificial intelligence AKA (AI) and robotics can help to improve worker performance, keep them very safe(from injuries) and reduce the amount of cash it takes to be successful. In this blog post, we'll take a look at some of the ways that AI and robotics are being used in the welding industry.

Getting started with ROS security scanning

It’s a new year, and an especially great time to reflect on the security of your robots. After all, those interested in breaching it are probably doing the same. In previous articles, we discussed ROS security by detailing practical steps for securing your robots on Ubuntu and the challenges the community faces. In this blog post, I’ll give you some strategies, tips and open-source tools you can integrate into your development process today to ramp up the security of your project.

Kria KR260 - a scalable robotics platform powered with Ubuntu

Today, robotics developers have something to look forward to with the release of AMD Kria™ KR260 Robotics Starter Kit. Robotics is a challenging endeavour. By reducing the barriers to entry on embedding design, AMD aims to accelerate robotics innovations in every industry. The latest addition to the Kria portfolio of adaptive system-on-modules (SOMs) showcases this work.

The State of Robotics - January 2022

What a way of starting the year! Setting milestones, helping those in need, and daring to dream. January 2022 starts with one of the biggest technological conferences — CES. So, in this piece, you will find a breakdown of three robots in our usual style. But there’s more… we also bring a story to inspire you all. It’s a great experience writing this blog, where every month news are abundant. Thank you all for contacting us and sharing your stories.

Robotics and Ubuntu rewind 2021

A year packed with news and events. A year where great competitions came to an end. A year that made us dream with new robots. 2021 inspired us to reach new heights and pursue new breakthroughs. As we power millions of robotics developers with Ubuntu and our robotics open source tools, we present a recap of what marked this year. Discover the victories and defeats of 2021. Those product launches that made the front page. Our best tutorials and whitepapers.

Security vulnerabilities on the Data Distribution Service (DDS)

If you are currently running the Robot Operating System 2 (ROS 2), this piece is especially relevant to the security of your robots. A few weeks ago, a group of security researchers reported 13 security vulnerabilities affecting some of the most used implementations of DDS, the default middleware used by ROS 2.

The State of Robotics - November 2021

Learning how to fly. Again. Because certain technologies and processes can always be optimized. Take laptops, for instance (I always wanted to become a laptop designer!). From foldable screens to computers that incorporate e-readers, we are always pushing for new designs that address ergonomic requirements but also improve the way we work. We are doing the same with drones. This month features innovations that dare to challenge the status quo of how we fly.
