Mobile Robot Revolutionizes Work in Supermarkets

Since the robot will be moving in confined areas, often along many customers, a very high level of safety must be achieved to avoid collisions and accidents.

Smart Floating Arms

They move like snakes and reach places that are too narrow or dangerous for humans. The robust robotic arms of the Tokyo-based company HiBot take inspection, maintenance and repair to new levels.

The Need for Speed - Manufacturers Must Adapt Workers’ Skills for Fast Covid-19 Recovery

Low demand scenarios necessitate a different strategy: tools that can produce more pieces per edge while providing process security. Here, the goal should be fewer production interruptions and the capability to run unmanned production.

GBC Technical Training Updates its Robotics Program

One of the most interesting features of this update to the Robotics program is the added module on autonomous robots. Autonomous robots are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the industry, with an increasing number of commercial and industrial applications.

Growth in Automation in E-commerce

Where there is e-commerce, there is inevitably logistics management. After all, what could be more efficient than a network-connected fleet of AGVs to travel around huge warehouses and find the required product in record time?

Case Study: Autonomous Earthmoving Robots
