The Center for Robotics and Biosystems at Northwestern

We are working toward the intimate physical integration of humans and robots. One example is robots that assist humans in collaborative physical tasks, like manipulating heavy objects in a warehouse.

Pick, Purchase and Program Your First Industrial Robot

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.

Maintenance Free UR Cobots Operate Continuously in Harsh Environment

Aircraft Tooling, a Texas-based repair center for the aviation industry, was surprised to find that Universal Robots could withstand the high temperatures and harsh environment while performing metal powder and plasma spray processes. The UR "cobots" have now been in operation for three years without breakdown or service requirements.

FT-Produktion Boosts Output Capacity Without Adding Personnel by Employing Combination of Collaborative Robots and Robot Grippers

"We chose a combination of solutions from OnRobot, Universal Robots, and EasyRobotics because they are easy to program, and the investment will pay for itself in just nine months. It's one of the best business decisions we've ever made."

The Collaborative Robot Market Will Exceed US$11 Billion by 2030, Representing 29% of the Total Industrial Robot Market

"The hardware innovation is still trailing behind, and most of the value related to cobots does not come from collaboration. It comes through ease-of-use, re-programmability, lower total cost compared to industrial systems, and re-deployability.

Smart Production Lines in Automotive Industry Use Cobots

Much like other industries, the automotive industry is changing. With the increase in the variety of vehicle models, variants, and derivatives being produced and the shorter product life cycles in the automotive industry.

New Collaborative Robot Vacuum Tool

The NEW Collaborative Robot Vacuum Tool (CRVT) from Bimba adds unparalleled flexibility to your collaborative robot. The standard CRVT is highly configurable to meet your application needs, but simple to install and operate.

Easy Programming of Cobots

Learning without programming means anyone can teach OB7 to do hundreds of complex automation jobs quickly. The operator simply shows OB7 how to do the job by physically moving the cobot through the steps, and it learns and remembers.

A Step Closer to Self-Aware Machines - Columbia engineers create a robot that can imagine itself

Columbia Engineering researchers have made a major advance in robotics by creating a robot that learns what it is, from scratch, with zero prior knowledge of physics, geometry, or motor dynamics.

Universal Robots Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary of Selling the World's First Commercially Viable Collaborative Robot

Universal Robots marks a decade of pioneering collaborative robots, now the fastest-growing segment of industrial automation. The company is poised for continued growth as its cobots continue to lower the automation barrier within a wide range of industries.

ABB to Build the World's Most Advanced Robotics Factory in Shanghai

Milestone investment will combine connected digital technologies, state-of-the-art collaborative robotics and cutting-edge artificial intelligence research to create the most sophisticated, automated and flexible Factory of the Future.

Next-Gen Robots Powered by Data Fueling Manufacturing Efficiency

As the continued e-commerce wave drives industry-wide pressure to deliver orders on time, there has been an explosion of cobot startups focused on improving the efficiency of picking and packaging boxes of mixed items.

Global Construction Robotics Market to Hit $420 Million by 2025

A recent report from QY Research looked at the global construction robots sales market and forecasted that the market would hit $420 million by 2025.
