Emerging Labs began as a place for business leaders to blend technical experience in product development and rapid prototyping. The Lab provides an open and creative environment for clients to achieve their goals through, experimentation and prototyping. Clients have access to the Lab’s workspace, infrastructure, and resources to develop prototyping techniques to test new ideas that will translate their visions into a reliable product.
What is the difference between a robot and a drone. The short answer by hobby roboticist, Swapnil Kalhapure, is that a robot is an electro-mechanical device that is guided by a computer to do certain tasks on its own. A drone is a specialized robot that is meant to fly. So any robot that has the ability to fly and do some automated task is a drone.Industrial robots have been around since the early 1960s and have been used mainly in automotive plants. As they have gained more sophisticated sensors in the past decade or so, they have increasingly been used in other fields, including manufacturing, healthcare, military and public safety. Robots have even been used for underwater applications. Robots can also be purchased with a camera, microphone, and video display on a motorized platform. As robotic avatars become more popular, there is no telling how prevalent robots will become. Robots are creating a function in business today and will be around for a long time.Drones are gaining functionality in many businesses today. Drones are used in agriculture, real estate, cinematography, military, and others. As the price comes down and the functionality increases, more businesses are finding relevant uses for drones. Will drones be part of your business’s future? The short answer is yes.
New worlds come alive with Virtual Reality. It is a computer-simulated reality that replicates an environment, real or imagined, and simulates a three-dimensional physical presence in a way that allows the user to interact with it through manipulation and exploration while feeling as if he/she were in that world. Virtual experiences are limited only by imagination and creativity.
Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of devices, embedded with electronics, software, and sensors, that enable an exchange of data. Imagine smarter, more connected things that allow responsive solutions, create innovative products, provide efficient manufacturing, and ultimately, amazing new ways to do business by enhancing collaboration between machines, humans, and enterprise systems.
