Five Elements Robotics Announces the Launch of Dash, the Robotic Shopping Cart

The Future of Shopping is Here Today!

WALL, N.J., Dec. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you tired of wandering around stores for hours trying to find what you came for? Are you done with waiting in lines? Then you will want to shop where Dash Robotic Shopping Cart is. Dash Robotic Shopping Cart was designed with the frustrated shopper in mind. Simply walk up to Dash, transfer your shopping list from your phone, or create a new list using the store search feature. Then, follow the robot as it maps out the most effective route to your items and takes you to each one.


Dash is equipped with a scanner and payment system so the customer can scan and pay for their items at the cart. No waiting in lines! After paying for items, the cart follows the customer to their car for unloading. Once empty the cart returns itself to the store and its docking station.

If that isn't cool enough, Dash features a Virtual Reality interface which shows the store to the customer as she walks down the aisles. Looking up, the customer sees the store, looking down the customer sees the VR representation of the store and aisle they are in with their next item highlighted on the screen.

Five Elements Robotics is expecting these to be in stores in 2017.

"The Dash Robotic Shopping cart will absolutely transform the way we do shopping. Once these robots are in the stores, we will not be able to imagine how we ever shopped without them," says CEO Wendy Roberts.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
