In today's e-commerce environment, consumers are purchasing single items with a click and that item-handling task has been pushed back upstream into distribution and fulfillment centers.
Many production areas are already extremely short on space, so having a design that allows for streamlined goods-to-person capability is a game-changer. These benefits are combined with our best-in-class energy consumption.
The system uses rollers to move pallets smoothly, without friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming.
With AI-powered SORT systems, robots do the mundane, repetitive tasks, successfully piece-picking customer orders into completion. Thus, our customers can redeploy employees in more suitable roles throughout the supply chain.
By collating all the robots onto one platform, we can enable the robots to operate collectively rather than individually. If all the robots are on one platform and under one traffic control, they will be able to share their location and become very efficient.
Supply chains are relying on automation to effectively adapt to fluctuating demand levels, new safety protocols, and shrinking labor pools. The need to operate efficiently, safely, and productively with less people is critical for today and also for success in the future.
Here are some lessons learned while shepherding grocery robots as they've logged more than 250,000 miles of pilot runs and hundreds of actual deployments.
The introduction of construction robotics may prove to be a tipping point for this industry. How are robots changing on-site construction today, and where can we expect to see them in the future?
Many companies make mesh network products for home Wi-Fi systems. Those are indeed valid and popular applications, but there are ample opportunities to use mesh networks for robotics, too.
There are many safety standards - most have been developed in the age of the fixed autonomous robot - behind a cage - in a factory, for example. Today, these robots are moving.
Motiv Space Systems made several contributions to the Mars 2020 Mission. The Perseverance Robotic Arm was the highest visibility subsystem development. This role required a close relationship with the JPL systems engineering team responsible for the sample and caching efforts.
With all the benefits offered by robots, the biggest barrier is the complexity of programming. More specifically, the expertise required to effectively program a robot can take years.
It has been over 6 months without any in person events. With that in mind we are putting together a special feature article for the fall to highlight some of the new products and services our partners have rolled out during that time. Part 2.

No matter how expertly designed or rigorously tested, every robot is bound to encounter edge cases at some point or another. How the issues are handled and how field ops are done, determines the longevity of the robot system or product.

OCTOPUZ makes complex robot programming simple through cutting-edge Offline Robot Programming Software (OLRP) that enables detailed robot operations, complete with machinery and manufacturing components, to be first simulated on a computer, then output for the real world. Within this virtual cell, OCTOPUZ uses built-in machine logic to identify the optimal toolpath trajectory and program the required code for a multitude of industrial tasks. The code is then output for the specific robot brand, for use in the real world.
