This, in turn, is driving inventory stakeholders to move their top-tier sites from majority bulk storage to majority racking, and from traditional aisles to very narrow aisles (VNAs). Rack heights have steadily increased from 25 feet, on average, to 35 feet or more.
The market for cobots has seen an exponential boost in demand; In fact, it is the fastest growing segment of industrial automation today.
In a new twist on human-robot research, computer scientists at the University of Bristol have developed a handheld robot that first predicts then frustrates users by rebelling against their plans, thereby demonstrating an understanding of human intention.
Global development and technology consultancy Cambridge Consultants has developed a robot that can emulate human touch. Hank uses sensors and soft grippers controlled by airflows.
Using a myriad of technology including sensors, lidar, infrared and machine vision, mobile robots are now able to operate in less stable environments. This means that mobile robots are no longer simple, guided machines.
The BionicOpter, an ultra-light flying object based on the dragonfly, is named there as the world record winner for biggest flying robotic insect. "It is fascinating what we can learn from nature.
The start-up company NISI (HK) Limited is currently developing a miniature surgical robot that can be inserted though natural openings in the body and only unfolds inside the abdomen.
AI systems are able to learn better ways of exemplifying data without human intervention and build models that match human values. When humans can't decide how to designate values, AI systems could identify configurations and create suitable models by themselves.
It combines high-performance force control, computer vision and advanced AI technologies, which enables the robot to adapt to the complicated environments, and accomplish better "hand-eye" coordination like human does.
• Supplier of High-Payload Autonomous Mobile Robots Complements Teradyne MiR's Leading AMR Position. • AutoGuide offers uniquely modular autonomous mobile tuggers and forklifts for high-payload material transport of up to 10,000 pounds (4,500 kg).
Robots and software work hand in hand, but what does this mean in concrete terms? How is software essential for robots? Why and how is it necessary to develop software specifically adapted to robotic applications? What are the future trends in software for robotics?
This method teaches a robot how to perform a single example task, while simulation addresses the problem in a more statistical way, conducting tens of thousands of virtual experiments to find the right solution for performing that task.
Many applications would benefit from a brushless motor without a sensor. There are various options for realizing this. A method developed by maxon is now setting new standards for precision and reliability.
Digital image sensors work based on the Photoelectric effect. When the image sensor is exposed to light (photons), an equivalent charge is produced by the image sensor. It is then converted to image data.
• Mobile and autonomous YuMi® laboratory robot will be designed to work alongside medical staff and lab workers • New robotics technologies will be developed in ABB's first global healthcare research hub at Texas Medical Center (TMC) Innovation Institute in Houston
