Robots and software work hand in hand, but what does this mean in concrete terms? How is software essential for robots? Why and how is it necessary to develop software specifically adapted to robotic applications? What are the future trends in software for robotics?
Visit the OCTOPUZ team at FABTECH 2019 in Booth B23113 to be the first to see what's new with the industry-defining OCTOPUZ Offline Robot Programming Software! In the meantime, be sure to stay tuned to our social media networks and website for more information.
This method teaches a robot how to perform a single example task, while simulation addresses the problem in a more statistical way, conducting tens of thousands of virtual experiments to find the right solution for performing that task.
Many applications would benefit from a brushless motor without a sensor. There are various options for realizing this. A method developed by maxon is now setting new standards for precision and reliability.
From the outside it looks just like any other industrial brushless servo motor but inside it utilized advanced manufacturing techniques to provide higher torque, higher speed, smoother operation, higher efficiency, and better inertial matching in a smaller package.
Digital image sensors work based on the Photoelectric effect. When the image sensor is exposed to light (photons), an equivalent charge is produced by the image sensor. It is then converted to image data.
With the growth and proliferation of collaborative robots, there has become an increased need for a wide variety of grippers and end effectors in general. One of the more challenging applications is for automated gauging and measurement of small parts.
The Zimmer Group development team also faced a tremendous challenge in developing special gripper fingers, which were intended to handle any potential type of bottle from 0.33 l up to 0.75 l by gripping the neck and body of the bottle.
The warehouse robotics have offered a more efficient, reliable, and accurate way of handling demand and supply equation by letting robots perform functions such as pick-place, packaging, transportation, and palletizing.
With the rising enhancement in technology, the autonomous car industry is flourishing day-by-day. Along with the behemoths in the automobile sector, various tech firms in the industry are brainstorming to launch their autonomous cars.
At its core, the Coapt Gen2 system uses algorithmic pattern classification to determine wearers' intuitive, real-time intent for moving the joints of a prosthetic arm and/or hand.
The good news is progress is being made as the industry's best minds address each issue when it comes up. The one thing we can say with confidence is that tomorrow's vehicle will run on data...tons and tons of data which is comforting for flash industry people.
AI is everywhere. Today it helps you find something faster using your smartphone and voice assistant. Besides that, many other sectors use AI and machine learning to improve their working processes and make them smarter.
Spot is a small four-legged robot that resembles-well, a dog. It might not fetch your slippers, but it is very versatile. It weighs about 66 pounds, about what a large dog weighs.
As robots grow in popularity, expect to see them in more common, repeatable tasks - like oil changes and tire replacements and rotations - to create increased efficiencies in service operations.

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
