MARS - Mobile Arm Robot System

In response to the growing demand for improved robotic assistance in industry sectors such as retail and light industry, we created MARS, the Mobile Arm Robot System, a robot with more sophisticated autonomous navigation and inspection capabilities.

COMPUTER VISION AND ROBOTICS EXPAND INDUSTRIAL CAPABILITIES

How can industrial robots gain new abilities that can increase their operational value while remaining safe and secure in a factory collaborating with humans?

Advanced Robotic Systems in the Automobile Industry

LinePar explores the integration of sophisticated robotic systems equipped with newer iterations like collaborative robots, AGVs, robotic vision, exoskeletons, etc., that are radically changing the ways of automotive manufacturing.

The Center for Robotics and Biosystems at Northwestern

We are working toward the intimate physical integration of humans and robots. One example is robots that assist humans in collaborative physical tasks, like manipulating heavy objects in a warehouse.

SCADA Market to Cross 50 Bn US-Dollar by 2026

Rapid proliferation of industry 4.0 technologies is likely to drive SCADA market. The market is expected to witness a robust growth rate on account of increasing adoption of automation technologies by manufacturing, utility, and oil & gas industries.

Innovative Manufacturers Should Embed Automated Systems in Production Processes

Innovative manufacturers should strategically embed three classes of automated systems into their production processes: industrial robots, autonomous robots, and co-bots. These precision tools will allow higher control of processes and thus lead to higher product quality.

Automation - no need to rip and replace

The concept of full automation could be daunting, especially considering the cost, time and disruption that go into building a brand new factory or warehouse – this just isn’t a viable option for a large proportion of businesses.
