Indianapolis 500 hosts ‘5G’ smart home

Sean Kinney for RCR Wireless:  In the run-up to the Indianapolis 500 race this weekend, a trio of tech heavy-hitters are demonstration pre-standardized 5G technologies in the context of a connected, smart home. Verizon, Ericsson and Intel are taking the opportunity to showcase consumer-facing entertainment aspects of ultra high capacity and ultra low latency network throughput including streaming virtual reality and 360-degree, 4K video.

For the showcase in Speedway, Ind., Verizon deployed a 5G trial network using Ericsson network equipment and Intel’s in-home gateway device. The user experience involves using a headset, which provides a 4K, 360-degree view of the track that supplemented with virtual reality elements. Other use cases touted by the companies include crystal-clear security camera feeds that can be tapped through the cloud, other VR and AR interactions, and providing a platform for internet of things devices and services.  Full Article:

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
