CES 16 - DENSO showcases smarter mobility and smarter living at 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show

At the upcoming 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, global auto supplier DENSO will use virtual and augmented reality platforms to illustrate how its technology could be used to make life smarter, safer and easier.

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Dec. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- At the upcoming 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, global auto supplier DENSO will use virtual and augmented reality platforms to illustrate how its technology could be used to make life smarter, safer and easier. DENSO will exhibit in the North Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC); Booth #2131, Jan. 6-9.


Visitors to DENSO's booth will be able to experience how vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) technology can create a safer and more convenient mobile world. These technologies help with accident avoidance, hazard warnings on highways or country roads, and collision avoidance for off road vehicles.

"It's our goal at DENSO to use our technology to create a smarter, safer and more convenient world," said Doug Patton, executive vice president of Engineering at DENSO International America, Inc. "But not only on the road—we're exploring how our technology and components can be applied far beyond the automobile, like in health care or agriculture. We want our technology to lead to better quality of life for people around the world."

DENSO's exhibit will also feature a Wellness Monitoring System to measure biometrics, such as blood pressure and heart rate and a gaze detection system for the automobile that tracks eye movement and responds based on where you are looking in a vehicle cockpit.

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.
