The Future is Smart Robotics 

Use of smart robotics tech is no longer confined to traditional sectors like manufacturing and automation as it is becoming a part of every business growth story with a diverse range of applications across multiple industries such as logistics, banking, retail, agriculture, healthcare and so on. The integration of smart robotics tech is expected to increase operational efficiency. According to an industrial source, by 2023, 40 percent of G2000 manufacturers will digitally connect at least 30 percent of their robots to cloud platforms improving operational efficiency. Robotics industry has also shown significant growth in the developments of sensor technology attracting investors to invest in intelligent robotics enabled by AI Artificial Intelligence. IoT Internet of Things is also making companies increase the demand for more smart machines and smart robots for personalizing user experience, improving productivity and ramp up efficiency.   The robotics industry is also giving impetus to the use of robots for activities such as robots that kill germs, robots as teaching assistants, and robots for crop harvesting. Other uses include robots that learn the concept of ownership, robots used by people remotely to earn income and robots that prevent seriously ill students from social isolation. With such unconventional usage of robots, the robotics industry is revolutionizing future for smart robotics purposes.  Also the robotic manufacturing companies will be able to see how robots that have been experimented for the use of unconventional ways have value for the marketplace as commercial success. The Andro-humanoid robot that expresses feelings and emotions like humans can perform household tasks and also helps older adults. The robot is smart, advanced and equipped with many sensors. The robot has motorized systems such as human joints, sensors such as human eyes and controls like the human brain. Also, another living example is Sophia, the world’s first humanoid built by Hanson Robotics, a Hong-Kong based company. Such intelligent innovation with the help of machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence is worth proving the future to be smart and fast-paced.

In first GeekWire Robotics Cup, school kids engineer a spirited and inspiring competition 

Teammates work to position their robot during the GeekWire Robotics Cup at the GeekWire Bash in Seattle on Thursday. GeekWire Photo Kurt Schlosser “We love STEM! We love STEM!” There wasn’t a more spirited chant to be heard at Thursday night’s GeekWire Bash in Seattle as more than 200 kids from across Washington state participated in the first GeekWire Robotics Cup. The FIRST LEGO League competition, organized by the non-profit FIRST Washington, featured future engineers, designers and coders putting miniature robots through a series of three, 2 12-minute rounds. It was as riveting as the Bash’s annual dodgeball and ping-pong tourneys, just a little more geek pride and singing. Here’s just a taste of the enthusiasm at this first-ever competition inside the Bash: RO-BOT-ICS! Kids celebrate their success at the first ⁦geekwire⁩ Robotics Cup at #gwbash … Well done, ⁦first_wa⁩! pic.m9WrkLcbtz8 — Alan Boyle b0yle March 8, 2019 Y-M-C-A!!!

Throughout the night, kids huddled around laptops and over piles of LEGO bricks, tweaking code and machines. Teachers, mentors and parents cheered and captured the action on smartphone cameras. Displays from each team were set up science-fair style to show off the work that went into understanding and tackling the “Into Orbit” task. Teammates decked out in festive geek gear cheered on each other and their robots, and they danced during downtime. “Stronger than steel, hotter than the sun! Wall-E won’t stop until he gets the job done!” one team chanted during their round, with all the enthusiasm of a traditional sporting event. LEGO astronauts. GeekWire Photo Kurt Schlosser Scott Bradley was the director of clinical information systems for the University of Washington for years, and now he’s retired and coaching his granddaughter’s Kirkland, Wash.-based robotics club called LEGO Lassies. “Right down here they’re going to try to make that rocket go up to the top!” Bradley said, as he watched the team of 6th-grade girls and their robot complete missions during a round. “Now they’re going to try to put that tube inside the space station. … Then they’re gonna do our satellite … there! They did it. Isn’t that cool?” The space theme, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, was even picked up in the makeshift names attached to the four tables where kids competed — Johnson, Vaughan, Jackson and Ride. The first three for the NASA mathematicians chronicled in the film “Hidden Figures” and the last for astronaut Sally Ride.

She called the robotics league a great experience for students. “We have a great mix of girls and boys,” Gotti said. “I’m really pushing our district for more robotics,” she said, adding that her kids built their robot for the GeekWire Cup in a week and a half — “dedication, dedication, dedication, dedication!” High school teams from Issaquah and Mountlake Terrace were also on hand to volunteer and show off their advanced skills to the younger kids. The Issaquah Robotics Society has about 65 active members and 15 adult coaches and mentors, and those at the Bash wore gold ties and showed off a robot named Gimli, which was able to catch a ball rolled up to its base and then toss it back to kids waiting nearby. Issaquah High School students show off their much larger robot. GeekWire Photo Kurt Schlosser “We love to do outreach,” robotics coach Julie Irwin said, as she talked about the various competitions, including world championships, that Issaquah has attended. Issaquah student Aedan Henry said students take on assorted responsibilities in the club, with engineers working on product and others working on other tasks. They just won an award at a competition for their business strategy. “It’s sort of like a small, real world tech company,” Henry said. “It’s really great for real world experience.” Eagle Power, a team from Nespelem, Wash., competes.

GeekWire Photo Kurt Schlosser The event was extra special for students who traveled 4 12 hours to Seattle from Nespelem, Wash., a tiny rural town on Washington’s Colville Tribal Reservation. Science teacher Christina Christopherson said the kids had a great day in the city, where they rode the Monorail and went to the Pacific Science Center. After a tough early round, the kids appeared bummed to not complete any missions. “So we have work to do, right?” Christopherson said, as she pumped up team Eagle Power and sent them back to the drawing board — and LEGO table. High fives for everyone. GeekWire Photo Kurt Schlosser The competition wrapped up with recognition for each team, as they ran through a line of judges and volunteers and officials from FIRST Washington to collect high fives.

NASA Administrator visits Oklahoma for robotics competition 

NASA Administrator, and former Oklahoma congressman, Jim Bridenstine visited Oklahoma City on Saturday to encourage youth involved in robotics during the FIRST Robotics Competition at the Cox Convention Center. Bridenstine, who was picked by President Donald Trump to lead the space agency last year, congratulated all of those who competed in the event, which featured dozens of teams from Oklahoma and teams from neighboring states. This year’s competition was themed “Destination: Deep Space,” and challenged teams to remotely operate their robots to collect samples on a fictitious planet while combating unpredictable terrain and weather. “If this is something you love to do, regardless of what happened today, keep doing it, because you can always do more and you can always achieve and you never know what the future holds,” Bridenstine told competitors and visitors during the closing ceremony. Bridenstine spoke of the scientists and engineers who successfully landed the Mars lander InSight last year. “The people who put this together, friends, 15 years ago were in your seats,” he said. “A lot of them participated in FIRST robotics. These are young folks, the new imagination of the future. Friends, 15 years from now you could be dedicating your life to putting a robot on another world.”

A different kind of sport: The Alexandria Area High School robotics team pursues recognition 

From the start of January to the middle of February, the robotics team has six weeks to build a functioning robot that can accomplish the tasks assigned to high school teams around the world. Thousands of kids have their mental toughness tested. The highs of winning and the lows of losing are drastic. However, this impressive group of kids wants something bigger for their program. They don't want to be called a club. How it started In 2009, AAHS submitted its final paperwork to For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology FIRST Robotics, a worldwide competition league, and was assigned the number 3313. "The number is the most important thing about your team," head coach Jennie Mounsdon said. "It's what identifies you. It becomes a part of you." AAHS was the 3,313th team around the world to join FIRST Robotics. The coach before Mounsdon worked at Alexandria Technical and Community College in a mechatronics class. He combined that class with his new team and named it 3313 Mechatronics. In 2013, Mounsdon got her first coaching job in Tower before heading back to her hometown of Alexandria. "I don't have a specific expertise like electrical engineering or anything like that," she said. "A lot of this comes down to organization and getting sponsors. If we don't have sponsors, we don't have a team. It's part of my job to make sure everything is worked out on that end." Each member of the team has a different role. One group is in charge of building the robot, and then there is the public relations staff. Each plays a crucial role in the overall operation. 3313 Mechatronics' goal Each season 3313 Mechatronics has to build a brand new robot from scratch. "The game is different every year," sophomore Kailei Johnson said. "We learn what the game is and what we have to do in January and then we have six weeks to build this thing that can compete in the game." With a limited amount of time, 3313 Mechatronics has to make the most of its time in the shop. When Mother Nature brings too much snow for school, it makes the task at hand even more challenging. "Snow days were intensely stressful," Johnson said. "They don't give us those day back to prepare. Usually we want the robot done early so we have time to practice with it. Once those six weeks are up, we can't bring it out unless it's for a promotional event." This year, the team named its robot Scorpion. The game is made up of basic tasks that range in difficulty. Scorpion should be able to pick up large vinyl-sized discs and place them on three different levels. Scorpion also has to be able to pick up rubber balls roughly the size of a basketball and shoot them into three different slots. To round out the game, Scorpion will then attempt to hoist itself up onto boxes at three different heights. The robot is controlled by 3313 Mechatronics veterans Ford Johnson and Logan Filipiak. The team's goal is to qualify for the world tournament in Detroit, but it will have to place well in two regional events to qualify. The first comes this weekend in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The games are set up with three robots competing against three other robots. Schools are randomly paired in qualification matches. Win or lose, teams get ranked by points for how well they did individually. At the end, the top-ranked teams get to pick other teams they want to work with. This is called an alliance. "We have a better chance than in years past," Johnson said. "Even if we aren't one of those top teams, I think we will get picked to be on a team." They have two chances to qualify for the world tournament. After this weekend, they head to one more regional event in Minneapolis at the end of March. The world event is in April. Mechatronics 3313 can qualify for the MSHSL state tournament on May 18 based on the seasonal rankings. The state tournament is separate from the FIRST Robotics organization. Striving for recognition The battle the robotics team endures is not only on the playing field, but within the community. Equipment costs are not cheap. The team relies on its sponsors for support. "The entry fees are thousands of dollars alone," Mounsdon said. "We have a ton of people that help us out, including our main sponsor, 3M. They paid for a lot of this stuff and we are happy to show them what our robot can do." The robotics team held a promotional event a week ago for sponsors and community members, showing off what the robot is capable of and allowing little kids a chance to drive it around the Discovery Middle School hallway. "A lot of people around the area don't know much about our team," Johnson said. "Maybe they've read about us or have seen us in a parade. We just wanted to show people what we do." When most people think of robotics, a sanctioned Minnesota State High School League sport doesn't come to mind. For Mounsdon, it's the stigma about robotics that she hopes to change. "We don't call ourselves a club because that's not what we are," Mounsdon said. "Robotics is one of the largest-growing sports in Minnesota. We put in just as much work as the other sports in this school. I am proud of these kids every year. "We are not a club. We are a team."

Indian Creek High School robotics team gears up for competition season 

Just a few years ago, their team was being rebuilt. Now, members of the Indian Creek High School robotics team have made a robot that will compete at multiple competitions across the state and are funding it with mostly student-led donations. Th Indian Creek High School FRC Robotics Team 3180 won an IN-Mac grant that will help them buy tools and parts for their robot. After spending about six weeks building their robot, they will now have the chance to compete at statewide competitions and possibly earn a bid to state and world competitions. Students worked to get the money they needed to compete and to build a robot they can compete with. A robotics team has existed at the school for about a decade. About three years ago, students were left without a leader to help them get through their season, coach Dwight Baxter said. Baxter had worked with the Center Grove team for years when his own children joined Center Grove’s team. Indian Creek students had a working robot and needed someone to see them through their season, so Baxter volunteered. Other parents and community engineers and those with STEM careers have joined in, and the robotics team is now in the throes of their season. “It is really a lot of fun,” Baxter said. “I can see the benefit.” Now their robot is built, and they just competed in their first competition of the season over the weekend. The team met at the school in early January, where robotics teams from across the world received the video that detailed the theme of the season and what they had to build their robot to do. After that, teams brainstorm what they want to do with the help of their adult advisers and have about six weeks to execute what they wanted to do. Team members met most school evenings to spend time working on their robot. More evenings will be spent at the school in the next month or so as they gear up for competition. Indian Creek’s 13 team members made a pro and con list for how to make their robot complete the mission — which includes covering holes on a spaceship with a hatch and lifting a ball multiple feet into the air — and then got to work. They built it in the time allotted and bagged it up, per FIRST rules. Bags are only allowed to come off of robots during competition season for a certain amount of time each week, Baxter said. Now, they are gearing it up for competition. The very basics of getting into FIRST robotics costs $5,000 each season. That money buys a basic robot kit for each team and gains them entry into a few competitions, Baxter said. Additional parts they need have to be paid for by sponsors, donated or scavenged. More money is also needed to get students to and from each competition and for overnight accommodations. That additional money is funded by students. “You have to raise money each step of the way,” Baxter said. Students ask local businesses for money, earning thousands in sponsorships that way. They participate in corporation-wide fundraisers. Team members sold brownies and drinks, planned games and did robotics demonstrations at last fall’s Music at the Creek event, which brought them money. Team members believe they have found their niche in their school, spending time after school and making friends, sophomore team member Zach Dyer said. “After school, I get to think of something with friends,” he said. And students are learning things after school that there is no time for during the school day, according to coach Lauren Nielsen. “There is no other classroom that would support that,” she said.

A FIRST in Amarillo: Robowranglers emerge as top seed in regional robotics competition 

More than 1,500 students and parents from the tri-state area took over the Coliseum of the Amarillo Civic Center for the FIRST For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology Robotics Competition. After competing in 12 of 58 two-minute matches during the two-day event, the Robowranglers were the top seed. The team from Greenville, Texas, was the highest scoring of three finalists who are heading to the state competition in Austin. The teams had just six weeks to design and build their robot to function under the event's deep space theme. “When we get the game, we analyze scoring, we analyze what robots can do and we come up with a plan of what we think we can do to win the competition,” said Adrienne Emerson, Robowranglers lead teacher. Emerson said her team of 32 ninth-12th grade students, along with 17 mentors, prioritize the important components, then split into groups to best achieve that outcome. “We prototype as many different ways that we can think of to do that as we can,” she said. The collective team is broken down into sub-teams to ensure everyone has a pivotal role to play. Sub-teams include mechanical, electrical, programming, marketing, social media and scouting responsibilities. “It’s not just kids that are interested in being engineers that participate," she said. "We have kids that want to be web designers, graphic designers or social media coordinators. We also have kids that want to be programmers and engineers, and we can give all of them a place to practice those things ... outside of school and in a team environment.” It's their 28th season as a team, which Emerson has been a part of for 20 years, having started as a sophomore student on the team. “I’ve gone full circle as a student, and now I’m a mentor," she said. The reigning 2018 world champions are automatically guaranteed a spot in the 2019 world competition, but Emerson said they aren't resting on that assurance. She said, “From our perspective, we still want to be competitive so we have to practice and work the robot and make the robot better and better until the world championships.” The Robowranglers scored 12-0, followed by Rockwall, Texas’ Black Hawk Robotics 11-1 score and Deming, Mew Mexico’s Zia Robotics score of 9-3. The teams won't see their robots again until six hours prior to the state competition April 3-6 in Austin. Emerson said they can bring 30 pounds of custom parts to make the upgrades they will plan between competitions. “We learned a lot this weekend," she said, "and there are some things that we want to fix and upgrade.” Sponsored by Amarillo Technology Initiative, along with FIRST in Texas, the Amarillo Area Center for Advanced Learning, the Texas Computer Education Association, Amarillo College, Dell and the Amarillo Convention and or Council, the event's presence was a first in Amarillo. “The kids all get the same problems that they have to solve, and they all find a different way to do it. It’s fascinating,” said Richard Gagnon, ATI chairman. “It’s amazing to see how intelligent these young people are and the creativity and diversity of solutions that they come up with.” Gagnon said Amarillo will host the competition again next year.
