With Boston Dynamics, the Group will create a robotics value chain, from robot component manufacturing to smart logistics solutions
Preparing food often involves some amount of nuance and reacting on the fly to different variables. This unpredictability is why kitchen robots haven't seen much use. That is, until now.
Automation can be seen as a complex area, and it is yet to reach its full potential - the challenge remains for robots to accurately and efficiently 'pick' items - but this shouldn't steer organisations away from making that initial investment.
Logistics is a constant race to deliver at fast speeds while maintaining a standard of impeccable accuracy at the lowest possible cost. The rise of intense competition makes next-generation applications essential for becoming a trendsetter in this industry.
Recent FAA rule changes will shift how drones may operate over people and moving vehicles. These more flexible rules relating to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) use may lead to significant changes in how drones are used in manufacturing.
Since the robot will be moving in confined areas, often along many customers, a very high level of safety must be achieved to avoid collisions and accidents.
Whether it is smart phone manufacturing, car-making or the food and beverage sector, factories around the world are already equipped with robots and other automated technologies. So how much of a threat is the possibility of these robots being hacked?
Five autonomous mobile robots (AMR) MiR1000 have improved productivity, safety and eliminated storage problems within the Florisa plant, a company that operates in the textile segment, with production focused on the dyeing of natural and artificial fibers.
The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) is helping to accelerate the field of soft robotics by sharing the design source files and full build instruction for its innovative domestic robot hands.
As automation becomes more pervasive in manufacturing, Flex's François Barbier discusses the positive impact robots and other advanced technology solutions have on their human counterparts.
When you sell a robot, the amount of additional required pneumatic components, sensing products, vision inspection systems and machine safety products can cost as much or more than the robot itself. Every robot sold has an exponential economic ripple effect.
The 2020 Honeywell Intelligrated Automation Investment Study revealed that e-commerce (66 per cent) grocery, food and beverage (59 per cent) and logistics (55 per cent) industries are most willing to invest more in automation.
Valet Market is a new way for consumers to shop for everyday items. They simply download the app and use their phone to check in to the store. Once inside, shoppers can select desired items and walk out without having to wait in line to check out.
Where there is e-commerce, there is inevitably logistics management. After all, what could be more efficient than a network-connected fleet of AGVs to travel around huge warehouses and find the required product in record time?
The Boxed Bot is extremely flexible, allowing an operator to design and produce exact pallet patterns quickly and easily from bags to boxes and other product types, and does so with a small footprint starting at just 8'x10'.
