How Commercial Robotics Will Power the Logistics Industry in 2021

Automation in the supply chain isn’t a new phenomenon, but it carries new urgency now. What was once a competitive edge is now a necessity. Robotics will power the logistics industry this year, and here’s how.

Next-Generation Mobile Robots Fleet Management

By collating all the robots onto one platform, we can enable the robots to operate collectively rather than individually. If all the robots are on one platform and under one traffic control, they will be able to share their location and become very efficient.

Effective Wireless Charging for AGVs

The trend towards lithium-ion batteries in intralogistics continues. Almost all large forklift manufacturers now have models with lithium-ion drives. In the field of driverless transport systems and mobile robots, powerful lithium-ion technology is already standard.

How Many Axes Does Your Robotic Positioner Need?

If you’re considering a robotic positioner, you have probably already looked at several different models. You’ve probably seen single-axis turntables, double-axis positioners, and multi-axis ferris wheels. You’ve probably explored different brands, styles, and price ra

Talking to Machines - New Operating Concepts With Artificial Intelligence

A simple request, a short sentence, for the human brain to interpret what is meant, make the connection and initiate an appropriate reaction is easy. For a machine this is much more complicated. To control technical devices with speech requires many individual steps.

A MiR500 Robot Lowers Transport Costs at Schneider Electric

The Schneider Electric Polska plant deals with the production of low voltage apparatus switches and accessories for these products. They have implemented an autonomous mobile robot MiR500 that transports finished products between the production line and the warehouse.
