Buying a new robot is a considerable investment for any business owner. Collaborative robots have been widely marketed as a cheaper alternative to industrial robots, but what's the catch?
Deployment of an automation solution that takes into account the process needs, the people as well as the technology, ensures businesses can introduce automation that can augment the workers' experience whilst also transforming productivity.
More flexible materials are necessary for safer collaborative work alongside humans and delicate tasks usually performed by humans, such as picking fruit and vegetables or performing minor surgeries.
Advanced robotics are already influencing maritime operations. From the green and eco-friendly benefits offered by regular hull cleanings, to the safer waters achieved through anti-piracy measures, the applications are vast.
ATX West, MD&M, Plastic West, West Pack and Design & Manufacturing take place in Anaheim, CA February 11th - 13th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years events.
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.
"Customers continue to shift toward more flexible solutions to support a variety of tasks. ATI's product families are configured to order and designed to increase process flexibility." Booth #4411
Conveyors, although often a last thought, can play a pivotal role in the optimization of a manufacturing facility. A processing line can only go as fast as the slowest piece of equipment. Booth #5014
Your AGVs cannot fail, and so the choice of their motorization is crucial. Here are 5 key points to bear in mind when motorizing an AGV.
"Stäubli's vision for the factory of the future is built on interconnected devices that operate collaboratively with humans to improve efficiency and the quality of goods," said Sebastien Schmitt, Robotics Division Mgr of Stäubli NA." Booth #4524
Robots aren't always given a favorable representation in pop culture. In Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), homicidal supercomputer HAL 9000 demonstrates how a robot could conspire against its human colleagues.
Paralyzed people can learn to walk again with the aid of electromechanical exoskeletons. However, it's not easy. It takes a lot of engineering and hard training.
To achieve large-scale commercialization of autonomous vehicles, a new generation of high-precision 3D environment sensing solid-state LiDAR technology products will be required to fulfill the industry's strict requirements.
VCaaS is financially and strategically beneficial to both the corporate partner and to the startup as the operating costs and time required for the company are significantly lower than if it were to train and pay its own team of venture capital investors.
