UK launches social care robot challenge

The Challenge runs from now, and will culminate in a daylong public presentation of collaborative learnings in Central London on Friday June 30, 2017, during the second annual UK Robotics Week 2017 (taking place from 24th – 30th June 2017).

The collaborative research themes will be agreed via themed workshops to be held during Spring 2017, addressing issues including assisted mobility; personal hygiene; social support; preventative and rehabilitation monitoring; remote assistance; and food preparation.

AI ethics under scrutiny

Initially funded with $27 million from the Knight Foundation; LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman; the Omidyar Network; the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation; and Jim Pallotta, founder of the Raptor Group, the new fund will also seek to advance public understanding of AI.

Featured product: OptiMOS™ 5 150 V power MOSFET (IPB048N15N5)


  • perfectly suitable for low voltage drives such as service robots and automated guided vehicles (AGVs)
  • lower RDS(on) (up to 25% compared to the next best alternative in SuperSO8) and Qrr
  • not compromising FOMgd and FOMoss
  • with an ultra-low reverse recovery charge (Qrr= 26 nC in SuperSO8) commutation ruggedness is increased
  • reduced paralleling, smaller size, improved EMI behavior




Service robotics and automated guided vehicles (AGVs)

The reason why we call ourselves a one-stop robotics shop is our seemingly endless portfolio of everything that one may need for developing, prototyping, building, and testing robotics applications. Service robotics and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are two out of four categories Infineon provides innovative robotics solutions for. Hence, we consider it part of our responsibility to constantly keeping up with latest trends (AI, HMI, wireless power, non-stop connectivity, IoT, smart homes, etc.).

0.39 inch colour AMOLED panel delivers XGA at 1000cd/m2

Aimed at viewfinders and wearables, the unit provides an XGA resolution of 1024x768 pixels, with 24-bit colour depth and a luminance up to 1000cd/m2. The OLED module integrates both a panel driver and a logic driver to achieve a small and flexible light weight display solution. Response time is in the order of 1 microsecond. The EX334XC comes with a power saving mode, and scanning can be selected from all four directions (top/bottom/right/left). The units, with both sub-LVDS and 120p-LVDS interfaces, can be easily integrated into OEM devices.

Bosch tops two of five pressure sensor rankings

Bosch is likely to continue to prosper as automotive and industrial applications will drive the global MEMS pressure sensor market over the next several years, according to the market research firm's data.

The market for MEMS pressure sensors will increase from about $1.6 billion in 2017 to just over $2.0 billion in 2023, experiencing a compound annual growth rate of about 4 percent over the period, Yole said.

SoftBank confirms sell-off of ARM China stake

The move had been previously reported (see Report: Control of ARM's China business passes to JV) and was thought to include China Investment Corp:, Silk Road Fund, Singapore's Temasak Holdings, ARM, Hopu Investment Management and Shum Yip Group.
