QUAN: Apple Technology Poised to Make Robots Easier to Use Than Ever

To produce powerful robots that even children will be able to quickly master without instructions.

HOUSTON--As Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) works to deliver powerful new robotics solutions to businesses and consumers alike, the technology in your pocket could soon dramatically increase the marketplace for robots designed for everyday use.


Researchers at institutions such as NYU-Poly and elsewhere are currently developing new mobile applications designed to put the high-tech features of Apple products such as the iPhone 5 and iPad to use controlling robots. The goal? To produce powerful robots that even children will be able to quickly master without instructions.

"If robots remain difficult to program and manipulate, they'll simply never catch on on a mass scale," said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. "The built-in sensors and touchscreens found in smartphones and tablets are ideal for a simple, user-friendly interface. Imagine a manufacturing worker, not long from now, lowering a robotic arm simply by lowering his or her phone.

"That's the future of robotics," he said.

To capitalize on this coming wave of smaller, easier-to-use robots, Quantum is negotiating a definitive agreement with Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurement (PIAP), a prestigious European robotics developer.

Partnering with PIAP could be the key to unlocking billions in potential revenues in the booming robotics industry. The mobile application marketplace is forecast to reach $25 billion by 2015; could robots be the next hot iPhone accessory?

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
