Robotics Symposium 2018 Recap

I recently had the opportunity to attend a great Robotics Symposium presented by Electromate at École de technologie supérieure. The primary goal of this event was to bring together academia and industry to discuss how to build a robot. Topics included technical presentations related to the design of robotic system, collaborative robots, SCARA robots, Cartesian robots, parallel robots, and delta robots. More specifically, many of the talks were presented by suppliers and application engineers of the actual components used for robot design.

Neuroscience 2017

Neuroscience 2017 was held November 11-15 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. More than 30,300 attendees convened in the U.S. capital city for the world’s largest marketplace of ideas and tools for global neuroscience. Guess where I'll be in November :) #Robotics #Science #Engineering #neuroscience #Health #Healthcare #tech #sfn2017 — Nicholas Nadeau (@EngNadeau) August 11, 2017

Celebrating researchers who'll shape Canada's future: Nicholas Nadeau

For Canada’s sesquicentennial, we showcased 150 of our researchers whose dedication and vision have impacted our past and will inspire our future. They exemplify the creativity, diversity, and tenacity that make Canada a wonderful place to live. via Mitacs

Spotlight: Engineering Neuroscience Products

Rogue Research is an engineering innovation company that develops systems that revolutionize brain image visualization. Over 450 laboratories around the world use their Brainsight line of products for applications such as cognitive neuroscience, rehabilitation research, and veterinary services. Rogue Research Brainsight family of neuronavigation products can be thought of as a GPS, but instead of a vehicle traveling, they are used to guide something called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. Protocase has been working with Rogue Research over the past three years to provide high-quality sheet metal components for several of their products and internal prototypes.

Robotic Arm to Aid with Mental Health Treatment

TMS is approved for mental health treatment in Canada and has had promising results treating illnesses such as depression and schizophrenia. Rogue wanted to explore a robotic solution to complement their existing software and improve the accuracy of TMS treatment. Nicholas began researching how to develop a robotic arm that could be produced inexpensively and used in clinical settings - features not readily available with existing robotic arms. Ultimately, Rogue and Nicholas determined that manufacturing a robotic arm in-house would be too expensive, so they’re now exploring the project with a local robotics company.
