Autonomous Transports Provide Safe, Contactless Delivery of Essentials

Contactless delivery isn’t just an option for your takeout or groceries. Thanks to intelligent robotic transport solutions that use IoT, sensors, and cameras—including Intel RealSense Depth cameras—people can now get contactless deliveries in hospitals and hotels and even mail delivery on a college campus.

How Edge Computing Increases Manufacturing Flexibility, Agility, and Cost-Effectiveness

Today’s manufacturers are more frequently turning to edge computing to optimize processes, increase yields, reduce defects, and improve quality. What is the current state of edge adoption, and what challenges to adoption do businesses face? Two Intel experts offer their insights into this promising technology.

Mid-Size Manufacturers Release Cobots into Automation Workstreams

Automation on factory floors isn’t just for large manufacturers anymore. Cobots, or collaborative robots that work alongside humans, are a more reasonably priced alternative for small and medium-sized manufacturers. Cobots can perform quality control, move and sort objects, handle repetitive tasks, and more, and companies are already seeing the benefits.

6 Good Reasons to Adopt Edge Computing

Up to 55 percent of IoT data could soon be processed near its source, according to a new report from Deloitte that makes the case for more edge computing. The edge offers many benefits like lower latency, efficient use of bandwidth, and fewer connectivity interruptions, and along with the cloud, it will drive tomorrow’s IoT architecture.
