Growth in the Automation of Distribution and Fulfillment Industry

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.

Edge Roller Technology (ERT®250) Conveyor

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.

AI-powered SORT systems in E-Commerce Fulfillment

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.

Next-Generation Mobile Robots Fleet Management

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.

Warehouses Turn to Automation to Meet Permanent Peak Demand

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.

Readers Choice 2020: How Do You Train a Retail Robot?

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.

Readers Choice 2020: How Robots Are Changing On-Site Construction

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?

Readers Choice 2020: Using Mesh Network Applications for Robotics

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.

Challenges of Developing a Safety System for an Autonomous Work Site

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.

Robotics Leads the Way For Space Exploration

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.

Taking a CAD/CAM approach to Offline Robotic Programming

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.

How Robotic Technology Can Mitigate COVID-19

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.

The Claxon Platform, a Quad CXP-12 PCIe Gen3 Frame Grabber

CXP-12 now offers the ability of transfer data at rates of 12.5 Gbps over a single cable up to 40m. Accompanied by the ability to power the camera from the PC via the cable is unique and unprecedented. No other interface can offer these options at these data rates currently.

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics Easy to Use, Omnidirectional 7 DoF Mobile Manipulator

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics omnidirectional 7 DoF mobile manipulator combines the easiest to use, most capable omnidirectional autonomous mobile robot with the simplest and most flexible 7 axis collaborative robot arm. The Vector AMR's omnidirectional mobility enables fast, precise docking in any direction or orientation so the OB7 can perform accurate and precise grasping or picking tasks, taking full advantage of the cobots' 7 degrees of freedom (7 DoF) and superior dexterity. It can be powered using Waypoint's EnZone wireless charger that provides on-demand energy and opportunity charging for longer run times. Workers can use this mobile platform to perform repetitive tasks such as machine tending, quality assurance sampling, material replenishment, packaging, and many others, so they can focus on the high skilled jobs for which they are uniquely qualified. It has never been easier or more cost effective to deploy a mobile manipulator for manufacturing and logistics applications.
