The future of farming
Whether in the field, in the barn, or in the greenhouse, robots and drones already handle a lot of tasks. Here’s what they can do.
Webinar: Agriculture 4.0 and drive technology
Watch this webinar to discover how maxon drives are being used in the fourth agricultural revolution.
Cybathlon teams #drivenbymaxon
At Cybathlon 2020, all of the attention will be focused on our main players: The teams. They are competing all around the world in a unique event. Every fifth
team uses maxon products. A small selection:
New drive developments for autonomous agriculture technology
The agricultural sector is undergoing significant changes and is modernising. To take the strain off farmers, many robots are being developed to automate tasks. What specific technical characteristics should agricultural machinery manufacturers take into account to assist farmers?
Drive technology and integration: how much design freedom?
While the development of e-commerce requires the design of compact AGVs, the democratisation of autonomous and connected e-mobility vehicles poses safety challenges. In this context, companies need to develop motorised solutions, with specific designs.
Challenges for the packaging industry
The packaging world needs solutions that offer greater profitability and meet environmental requirements.
Training robots revolutionize therapy
When two Swiss robotics engineers developed a new computer-controlled leg press, that was surprisingly effective in the rehabilitation therapy.
The bionic glove
A stroke, an accident — and suddenly your hand no longer works as it should. A novel product by two medical technicians promises help.
Robots in the vineyard
In France’s Bordeaux region, autonomous robots ensure that the wine is organically good.
The docking system for safe space rendezvous
The European Space Agency (ESA) is working on a new system to enable easy docking between two spacecraft.
How to optimize your drive system
Drive technology is a basic building block for the performance of machines, robots, and hand-held devices. However, there is much more to consider than just the design and the motor selection.
