John Deere’s Fully Autonomous Tractor for Large-scale Production

John Deere’s Fully Autonomous Tractor for Large-scale Production

John Deere's new autonomous tractor is all the fast-growing population needs for large-scale production. The tractor can do the job autonomously while the farmer is doing other tasks, and they can monitor its status through an app on their mobile phone. Image credit: John Deere Key features: GPS guidance systemsix pairs of stereo cameras for 360-deg visual perceptionimages are processed through a deep neural network for obstacle detection This tractor will be available to all farmers in late 2022!

A Wheeled-Quadruped Robot for Logistics and Delivery Applications

A Wheeled-Quadruped Robot for Logistics and Delivery Applications

A team of six people from the Robotic Systems Lab of ETH Zurich developed Swiss-Mile, a wheeled-quadruped robot for autonomous delivery and logistics. image credit: the Robotic Systems Lab of ETH Zurich and Swiss-Mile The AI-powered quadruped can act like a car, a legged robot, and a humanoid robot, all in one robot for applications in delivery and logistics. Watch the robot in action in the following video: Key features: locomotion skills are performed using reinforcement learningdriving speed of up to 6.2 m/s (22.32 km/h or 13.87 miles/h)can stand up on two legs More information: https://rsl.ethz.ch/https://www.swiss-mile.com/ Mecharithm links:linktr.ee/mecharithm Thanks for…

Other Explicit Representation for the Orientation in Robotics: Roll-Pitch-Yaw Angles

Other Explicit Representation for the Orientation in Robotics: Roll-Pitch-Yaw Angles

In the previous lesson, we learned about Euler Angles Representation which is one of the ways to explicitly represent an orientation. This lesson will continue with explicit ways to represent the orientation, and we will learn about Roll-Pitch-Yaw Angles. This lesson is part of the series of lessons on foundations necessary to express robot motions. For the full comprehension of the Fundamentals of Robot Motions and the necessary tools to represent the configurations, velocities, and forces causing the motion, please read the following lessons (note that more lessons will be added in the future): https://www.mecharithm.com/category/learning-robotics-mechatronics/fundamentals-of-robotics-course/fundamentals-of-robot-motions/ Also, reading some lessons from the…
