in Additive Manufacturing and Robots”
report has been added to’s

This Advanced Manufacturing Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine
(TOE) profiles advancements in additive manufacturing and robots. A
powder-based 3D printing method that uses predictive simulation software
for high quality prints, additive manufacturing of micrometer level
components, a robust soft gripper for heavy lifting, and an automated
Hemming robot have been discussed in this TOE. Also in focus are an
outdoor valet parking robot, an autonomous logistics robot for
warehouses and retail stores, and butler robots for the hospitality

The Advanced Manufacturing Technology TOE covers global innovations and
developments related to manufacturing and industrial automation on a
weekly basis. Innovations are focused toward improving product
traceability, energy efficiency and reducing environmental footprints,
integrating product design and manufacturing aspects for reducing

Research focus areas include rapid prototyping (additive manufacturing),
lightweighting (multimaterial joining, plastics and metals
manufacturing, carbon fiber-based composite manufacturing), smart
robotics (agile robots, consumer robots, swarm robotics, cobots),
monitoring and control (wireless control networks, human machine
interface), and simulation and modeling (design and simulation software).

The Advanced Manufacturing and Automation (AMA) Cluster covers
technologies that enable clean, lean and flexible manufacturing and
industrial automation. Technologies such as three-dimensional (3D) and
four-dimensional (4D) printing, wireless sensors and networks,
information and communication technology, multimaterial joining,
composites manufacturing, digital manufacturing, micro- and
nano-manufacturing, lasers, advanced software, and printing techniques,
are covered as part of this cluster.

The technologies covered here impact a wide range of industries, such as
the impact semiconductor, automotive and transportation, aerospace and
defense, industrial, healthcare, logistics, and electronics industries.
