Digital Transformation and Industrial Robots Outlook

Whilst initially a temporary measure to resolve manpower shortages and high employee costs, many companies are now investing in smart robotics as a permanent and long-term measure in a post-pandemic world.

Advancing AMR's with LIDAR

Advanced 3D lidar sensors emit pulsed light waves into the surrounding environment. These pulses bounce off surrounding objects and return to the sensor. The sensor uses the time it took for each pulse to return to the sensor to calculate the distance it traveled.

Trends Shaping the Automation Industry

The topic of retrofitting, i.e., the modernization of machines and systems into the digital age, is also an important trend in terms of sustainability, energy saving and resource optimization that we are also serving.

Opinion: EU AI Act Will Stifle Robotics Innovation

Any policy that slows down the use of automation will cause operational inefficiencies. This is the last thing we need considering the global supply chain crisis.

Solving Worker Shortages in Food Service With Automation

There is no doubt that technology will become a critical component of our everyday food experiences within the next five years. Robotics and AI will facilitate better access to healthy food, while also reducing food waste to help our planet.

You Know Your Company Needs Robotics, but Don't Know Where to Start. Here's How.

For companies still without an automation infrastructure in place - and if we're honest, that's likely the majority - it's time to catch up. Robotics help meet supply chain demands and improve employee safety.

True Flexibility in your Robotics System

Leveraging third-party hardware, such as a robotic picking arm, and software, such as customized WMS, is crucial if you want true flexibility in your robotics system.

Digital Transformation and the Smart Factory

The Smart Factory at Wichita (TSF@W) provides a risk-free environment for companies to explore the art of the possible and gain insight into the latest technologies through an immersive, hands-on experience.

Robust Drive System Simplifies Mobile Robot Development for the Factory of the Future

Another issue is the inability of some AGVs and AMRs to drive smoothly while operating slowly, an important consideration for scenarios where the AGV or AMR itself may perform part or component assembly.

Labor Shortages Impact on the Automation in the eCommerce Boom

Automation and robotics create such a dynamic industrial ecosystem that it will continue to adapt to increased demand for consumer products. We'll see more artificial intelligence being deployed and utilized.

HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing Technology for End of Arm Tooling

When HP set out to develop this technology, the aim was to push beyond prototyping and enable repeatable, higher volume additive manufacturing. We can do this by combining a powder bed fusion approach with HP's Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology.

Increasing Warehouse Efficiency with Robotics

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.

Handling Omnidirectional 3D Vision Data in Mobile Robots

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.

Benefits of a Tactical Grade IMU in Low-cost GNSS/INS Systems

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.

Robots in the Food Service Industry

The future of fresh, fast food is in robotics. In the not-so-distant future, robotic food automation systems will line the checkout areas and hallways of our major retailers, food courts, airport terminals, hospitals and universities.
