Cybernet Systems Announces All Weather Driverless Vehicle Patent Pendings for Automated Warehouses and All Weather Driverless Vehicles

Cybernet has been developing autonomous driverless technology since 1996. It has developed technology that enables driving in bad weather as well as for material handling operations.

March 08, 2014


Cybernet Systems Corporation, a leading defense, robotics, engineering, cyber security and simulation systems development company, today announced a patent pending for automated warehousing systems built around fully automated near-human driver capable robotic forklifts. The technology demonstrated to the US Army in November of last year at Toole Army Depot in Utah enables fully automated and mixed automation warehouse applications where multiple driverless forklifts work together with man-driven fork trucks safely. This effort grows from prior work the company has completed implementing automated lift trucks for ammunition handling and Unit-to-Unit Autonomous Resupply Vehicles for the Army based on its DARPA Urban Challenge automation kits. Additional technology in the line also enables driverless vehicles to operate in inclement weather conditions including snow, rain, dust, fog, and smoke. This technology was developed as a spin-off of driverless pallet delivery truck testing performed for the US Army during the 2013 and 2014 cold weather season.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
