Dobot Magician Debuts at Google I/O 2017

At the Machine Learning area, Dobot Magician was implanted with Google TPU2 and TensorFlow. It successfully showed practical applications of the latest technologies in the field of image and speech recognition and machine learning. Dobot Magician was called "Candy Sorter" in this showcase.

SHENZHEN, China, May 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Google I/O 2017 was held on May 17 at the Google Shoreline Amphitheater. Google's CEO Sundar Pichai announced that Google's next strategy would be transferred from "Android First to AI First" at the developer conference. Many different new technologies such as Android Auto and Google VR were shown in the Google Cloud Experience Area. Dobot Magician, a desktop robotic arm, was the only Chinese product showcased.


At the Machine Learning area, Dobot Magician was implanted with Google TPU2 and TensorFlow. It successfully showed practical applications of the latest technologies in the field of image and speech recognition and machine learning. Dobot Magician was called "Candy Sorter" in this showcase.

Controlling the Dobot Magician is easy and can be accomplished via using an APP or speaking into the microphone. The Dobot Magician is also able to pick objects up with its robotic arm. Dave explained that the Dobot Magician was armed with the Google Cloud Machine Learning engine, the Inception V3 Model. It can analyze and understand human language through a speech API and can recognize things under a little camera through Visual API. Because of those APIs, Dobot Magician is able to make predictions quickly based on a model embedded in the Cloud and run in accordance with human will.

Why was Dobot Magician chosen to be displayed at the event? The reason lays in the unique advantages of the product, such as opening APIs, high precision and flexibility. What's more, there are 13 extensible interfaces on the body. It supports major communication protocols such as CAN and Ethernet as well as over 20 programming languages such as Blocky, Python, C++, Java and Lab view. Dobot Magician can be second developed without any limitations.

Therefore, Dobot Magician is an ideal machine learning platform for learning Programming, Data Modeling, Mechanical Engineering, Power Engineering, Computer Applications, Industrial Simulations and more. Not only that, installed with different end-tools, Dobot Magician can show off many interesting functions such as 3D printing, laser engraving, writing and drawing.

Dobot Magician is created by Shenzhen Yuejiang Technology Co., Ltd, a high-tech company from China. Yuejiang is a leading company in the field of smart desktop robot arms and one of the first companies in the world to bring the concept of smart robot arms to the desktop. More than 70% of Yuejiang's staff are educated engineers from top institutions. It owns 100% of its core technologies and over 40 international patents. The robot arms created by Yuejiang has been sold over to more than 100 countries and regions up to now.

The next station of Google I/O will be held at Tokyo Royal Prince Hotel in Japan from June 14 to 15, 2017. It's a good opportunity for Asian developers to learn more about the most advanced technology in the world. Dobot Magician will be also shown there. China has been a leading country in science and technology globally. Take Dobot Magician as an example, looking forward, an increasing amount of Chinese high-tech products will appear in more high-tech shows in the future.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
