Through the combination of technology and our expertise in designing automated high-density storage and retrieval, we're able to achieve high levels of throughput that only automation working alongside people can bring.
This is how Industry 4.0 technology is revolutionizing the robotics industry - and what changes robotics professionals should expect over the next few years.
Manufacturers have long relied on human vision for complex picking and assembly processes, but 3D vision systems are beginning to replicate the capability of human vision in robotics.
This small component was stopping them from realizing the full potential of their manufacturing process as they could only run the system when there was someone there to restart the system if a stoppage occurred due to slippage.
We are currently focused on two main solutions - human presence detection with depth for autonomous mobile robots and UV-C disinfection robots. We also focus on obstacle detection and avoidance as well as localization and mapping for AMRs.
Improving Image Stabilization with Hexapod 6-Axis Motion Simulators for More Reliable Image Capturing
Taking sharp pictures despite fast changing lighting and ambient conditions, recognizing traffic signs or road markings in driver assistance systems, or identifying dangerous situations in surveillance systems - all of this is possible today with the help of modern cameras.
The company has dedicated robotics and advanced technologies labs and hires specialists to develop and test possibilities. Here are some of the latest robotic creations made to improve worker safety at Amazon.
A recent Gartner survey showed 57% of manufacturing leaders feel their organization lacks skilled workers to support smart manufacturing digitization plans. Most agreed a long-term strategy is necessary to develop the connected factory worker.
As retailers forage for new ways to cope, many have decided to close down physical stores and focus on restructuring their business, either through expansion of online retail or introduction of novel business concepts.
As both an industry and an entire class of technology, robotics changes and advances rapidly. Whether as a hobbyist or seasoned robotics engineer, you need to know each component inside and out. You should also know how to choose between several different variations.
The fourth Industrial Revolution, Industry 4.0, has seen telematics and automation come together. Here's a closer look at the intersection of these two innovations.
On July 1st Zebra Technologies announced that it would be acquiring Fetch Robotics. It will be paying $290 million to acquire the 95% of the company that it does not already own, in a deal that values Fetch Robotics at $305 million.
The opportunities, conditions and business advantages offered by properly functioning collaborative automation solutions have never been more attractive, while the technology is also more accessible than ever.
When researching the best PC for smart warehousing and logistics, you might have a specific spec you're trying to meet or processing capability you're looking to achieve. You're also likely looking for a computer that is better, faster and more reliable.
When determining which system is right for your application, it can be difficult to visualize the impact of IMU selection on total system performance. Our goal in this paper is to show how the quality of the IMU affects the end-use system via several real-world tests.

Piab's Kenos KCS gripper enables a collaborative robot to handle just about anything at any time. Combining Piab's proprietary air-driven COAX vacuum technology with an easily replaceable technical foam that molds itself around any surface or shape, the gripper can be used to safely grip, lift and handle any object. Standard interface (ISO) adapters enable the whole unit to be attached to any cobot type on the market with a body made in a lightweight 3D printed material. Approved by Universal Robots as a UR+ end effector.
