Follow as we explore the changing worlds of science and technology.
Roboticists at GE Global Research in Niskayuna, N.Y., are investigating the future of manufacturing. They are looking at the possibility of deploying industrial robots throughout our global operations.
Rethink Robotics’ Baxter, the machine above that is now being tested in Niskayuna for possible future use, is specially designed to work around people. A human supervisor can program its moving arms to complete simple repetitive actions, and the appendages stop when they make contact with something that gets in their way. This could mean safer and healthier future working conditions.
