Andrew McManus joined Gannon & Scott as general manager in 2016. Previously, he spent 15 years at a recycling company that processed electronic waste and precious metal scrap. Early in his career, McManus worked in environmental and opera- tions positions at manufacturing facilities involving precious metals at metal-finishing shops and a flexible- circuit operation. Andrew also served over 30 years in the U.S. Army and Reserve retiring as a lieutenant colonel. He earned an MBA in operations management from Bryant University and a B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Rhode Island. Gannon & Scott has been a precious metal processor since 1919. to help them pick up an object, the worker gives the robot a hand signal. Another signal tells the robot to release the ob- ject so it can be set down. Professor Dimos Dimarogonas, coordinator of the proj- ect at KTH's Department of Automatic Control, says that the functionality is not platform-specific, so it can be transferred to other robots during the next phase when tests continue with Bosch. "The robots will be in a larger dynamic office environment and collaborate with more robots and people. They will get more advanced tasks, and with differ - ent types of agents," Dimarogonas says. Other uses for the technology will even- tually include healthcare facilities. (Source: KTH Royal Institute of Technology) Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology report- ed new progress working within the framework of the Hori- zon 2020 European research project, Co4Robots. The proj- ect has developed functionality that enables real-time ro- bots to move in a dynamic situation while collaborating with other robots and people. The new functionality the project has developed has since been as- signed to the TIAGo robot from PAL Ro- botics in Spain. TIAGo has gained a sense of observation that it can use to navigate in a changing landscape such as an office. As the robot steers itself around a workplace, it can iden - tify things that must be moved. When a human co-worker wants the robot Researchers Unveil Breakthrough in Human-machine Cooperation
