Building a robot company is difficult, very difficult. It requires unwavering belief in yourself, in your idea, in your team and ultimately in your product. But it is also one of the most thrilling experiences anyone could imagine.
Space robotics is understandably conservative. When the cost of putting a robot on a planet, moon or asteroid runs into billions we need to be sure the technology will work. And with very long project lifetimes - spanning decades from engineering design to on-planet robot exploration - it's a long hard road from the research lab to the real off-world use for new advances in robotics.
“Appearing on CNBC yesterday, Musk explained that he’s invested in more than one AI research company not in hopes of an eventual payoff, but mostly to give himself the best possible vantage point on new advancements.
Illustration: Harry Campbell We already know that we won’t see fully autonomous vehicles until after 2030. But the systems that will form the brains of a driverless car are already being introduced piecemeal.

From 20 September to 3 October 2014 CMRE will host SAUC-E for the fifth year in a row andeuRathlon sea robotic challenge for the first time.
The NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (part of the NATO Science and Technology Organization) confirms and increases its commitment to foster a new generation of robotic engineers. In September 2014, in addition to the Student Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge - Europe (SAUC-E) hosted for the fifth year in a row in CMRE's sheltered harbour, the first euRathlon sea robotic competition will be held the following week.
Each year SAUC-E challenges multidisciplinary University teams (consisting at least of 75% students members) to design and build Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) capable of performing realistic missions. The students' AUVs must perform a series of tasks autonomously facing real life conditions such as limited visibility in the sea, with no control, guidance or communication from a person or from any off-board computer including GPS systems. This 9th edition will be held from 20 to 26 September 2014
“Flying robots that can show true autonomy – and even a bit of politeness – in working together and venturing into hostile environments are being developed by engineers at the University of Sheffield.” Source: www.sheffield.ac.uk At the University...
If you’re interested in building your own ASIMO, you’ve got to start somewhere. Kinematics’ modular TinkerBots provide a very great jumping-off point, letting you quickly assemble and program your own robots.
