NASA believes that the Moon will soon be taken over by companies making money on extracting mineral resources. Building the moon bases will be a difficult task that will require robots – and Polish scientist know how to do just that. NASA is currently testing PIAP robots. These were designed for NATO, and thus are very durable, says Artur B. Chmielewski, NASA Space Mission Managed during the 10th Night at the Institute of Aviation. More on NASA space plans and possibilities for cooperation with Polish companies and scientists can be found on the PIAP website – Science in Poland.

EU space industry employs 230,000 people and is estimated to be already worth of EUR 53 to 62 million. What is Poland’s contribution in this context? Very significant. – Warsaw-based PIAP Space is one of the companies which take advantage of the developing European space industry to the full extent – Euronews, a news channel publishing articles and videos in 12 languages, reported. Read the article and watch the video featuring ŁUKASIEWICZ – PIAP Institute.
Robots on production lines will not surprise anyone today. Sometimes human beings work shoulder-to-shoulder with machines. Joanna Kulik, Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements PIAP, discusses rules for designing robotic cells and safe work with robots at AutomatykaOnline.pl.
Robots featuring high-performance artificial intelligence are often hidden in laboratories and fail to reach mass production. Over time (…) everyone will have a few such robots at home; they will accompany us at work, at school, on the move, at hospital – says Dr. Maciej Cader, ŁUKASIEWICZ – PIAP Institute, talking to editor Bronisław Tumiłowicz. You will find the interview at the Tygodnik Przegląd weekly’s website.
