Mouser Electronics, Inc. announces the release of a new e-book titled Collaborative Robotics, the most recent offering in the Generation Robot series, part of Mouser’s Empowering Innovation Together™ program. Featuring a foreword by celebrity engineer and Mouser spokesperson Grant Imahara, Collaborative Robotics features a diverse selection of articles examining the history, design and use of robots, as well as their implications for a variety of industries.
“In the Generation Robot series, Mouser and Grant Imahara answer some of the most pressing questions related to the evolution of collaborative robots,” said Kevin Hess, Senior Vice President, Marketing at Mouser Electronics. “Robotics will certainly play an increasing role in the future of engineering, but there is still a lot of uncertainty around how we will work with our new robot partners. This new e-book offers fresh perspectives and valuable insights on some of the most interesting aspects of collaborative robotics.”
The new e-book focuses on how collaborative robots (or cobots) interact and coexist with humans as they work side by side. Topics include cobot design, uses in manufacturing and industrial applications, motion control, and artificial intelligence (AI) in future cobot technologies. The new e-book from Mouser also examines the human aspect of collaborative robots, including articles on the social impact of robotics and the importance of safety in robotics design.
The Generation Robot series, hosted by Imahara, features five videos filmed in locations around the world, highlighting the people, companies and machines that are changing how we view and interact with robots. The series showcases everything from robotic theory to real-world robotic use cases that seem like science fiction but are, in reality, a glimpse at how we will navigate in an equally human and robot world. The Generation Robot series is supported by Mouser’s valued suppliers Analog Devices, Intel®, Microchip Technology and Molex.
Since 2015, Mouser’s Empowering Innovation Together program has been one of the most visible and recognized programs in the electronic component industry, featuring projects ranging from 3D printing objects in space to the amazing benefits of technologies that are Shaping Smarter Cities. For 2018, Mouser’s goal is to reach even more innovators around the globe with the Empowering Innovation Together program through the focus of how robots impact humanity.
