Pick-by-Vision adds to smart technology because smart glasses learn manufacturers' parts; they memorize the visual appearance including robots and bin locations. Pick-by-Vision predicts and prevents mis-picks and decides the best part to pick next.
A foundry, making different car suspension parts, was using a gripper with a dust cover to grind and deburr parts out of a press. They were having issues with the gripper and getting debris in the guideways and not being able to actuate the gripper.
Universal Robots Launches ActiNav, the World's First Autonomous Bin Picking Kit for Machine Tending Applications
ActiNav synchronously handles vision processing, collision-free motion planning and autonomous real-time robot control, eliminating the complexity and risk usually associated with bin picking applications.
At the Institute for Intelligent Process Automation and Robotics of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Robot Learning Group (ROLE) focuses on various aspects of machine learning. The scientists are investigating how robots can learn to solve tasks by trying them out independently.
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.
Picking is a specific, repetitive task that takes place in every fulfillment warehouse. It's also one of the biggest expenses, often making up more than half of operational costs.
This Honeywell Intelligrated white paper examines the specific labor, operational and technological challenges on the loading docks of distribution centers (DCs), and introduces a new solution to help deliver the performance modern supply chains require.
Winner of Fetch Robotics FetchIt! Challenge Executes Complex Manufacturing Tasks Using Autonomous Mobile Robotic Arm
Georgia Institute of Technology Awarded Prize Package Worth Over $150K In Inaugural Contest Hosted at IEEE Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA)
Booth #6773 - This year's show will be an importing stepping stone into our next chapter as we rapidly expand our distributor network and market traction.
The boxes used in the video weigh about 5 Kg (11 lbs), but the robot is designed to handle boxes up to (15 Kg) (33 lb). This version of Handle works with pallets that are 1.2 m deep and 1.7 m tall (48 inches deep and 68 inches tall).
Partnerships with innovators in robotics, drones, sensors, and wearables make the smart warehouse customizable, flexible, and scalable
Universal Logic announced today a new version of its signature Neocortex artificial intelligence product designed for do-it-yourself engineers. Neocortex DIY software allows engineers to configure and deploy AI-based robot cells for variable picking
Matt Simon for Wired: "Companies like Amazon and others are now delivering products at an unprecedented rate, something like 500 packages per second. And that is only going to grow."
Nick Statt for The Verge: Kindreds new production model robots, now called Kindred Sort, have been operating in a pilot program at a Gap warehouse, with plans to expand the fleet of robots to help the retailers full fulfillment network down the line.
Michael Pooler for FT.com: An industrial dance takes place every day and night on the floor of Amazons huge warehouse in Manchester.

Piab's Kenos KCS gripper enables a collaborative robot to handle just about anything at any time. Combining Piab's proprietary air-driven COAX vacuum technology with an easily replaceable technical foam that molds itself around any surface or shape, the gripper can be used to safely grip, lift and handle any object. Standard interface (ISO) adapters enable the whole unit to be attached to any cobot type on the market with a body made in a lightweight 3D printed material. Approved by Universal Robots as a UR+ end effector.
