10. Sensor breakdown: How does the robot vacuum cleaner move
Over the past few years, robotic vacuums have evolved significantly. Prototypes tend to go up randomly across the room, often missing key areas on the floor during their runtime. Since those early days, these negatives have been turned into advantages through the innovative use of sensors and motor controllers combined with open source custom software and drivers. Here’s a look at some of the different sensors used in today’s robot vacuum to improve mobility and cleaning. Read more
9. How can the AI chip ban affect Chinese robotics companies
NVIDIA and AMD have said the US government has ordered them to stop exporting some AI chips to China, which is the world’s second-largest economy. Both companies are now requesting licenses to sell AI chips to China. Read more

4. Gripper launches MAXXgrip
Gripper has officially launched the MAXXgrip, the first gripper solution designed specifically for warehousing and logistics applications. The new MAXXgrip uses a vacuum cleaner and four soft moving fingers to solve the problems that robotic grippers have in handling parts in warehouse picking and sorting jobs where there are so many different types of items to deal with. A hinged vacuum clutch is used to obtain the initial element, then the fingers are deployed to hold the element caught during transportation by the robot. Read more
3. Amazon is testing disk-powered bots for e-commerce
The robots that pick out items in Amazon warehouses need to be able to handle millions of different items of different shapes, sizes, and weights. Right now, the company primarily uses a suction clutch, which uses air and an airtight seal to lift items, but Amazon’s robotics team is working on developing a more flexible clutch to reliably pick up items that suction grippers struggle to pick.

2. FTC Investigating Amazon’s Acquisition of iRobot
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has officially launched an antitrust investigation into Amazon’s plans to acquire robotic vacuum maker iRobot for $1.7 billion. Politico Reports that the Federal Trade Commission is investigating a number of potential issues. The FTC’s investigation is said to focus on whether data provided by iRobot’s Roomba robot vacuum gives Amazon an unfair advantage in the retail industry. Read more
1. The Linux system that embraces Rust will strengthen the bot community
linux Dictator is good for life Linus Torvalds recently mentioned that the programming language Rust It will be used in the upcoming Linux 6.1 kernel. Currently, the Linux kernel is in preview version 6.0-rc6 (codenamed “Here’s my role as a sloth ninja’) So we have some time before we all have Rust to run the kernel, but just the announcement is worth the news. The author believes that embracing Rust at the core of Linux would be a huge boost to the bot community. Read more
