It's easy to show a robot being programmed in a matter of minutes inside of a controlled virtual environment. But those programs need to translate to something useful in the real robot cell. The points that the robot will follow need to line up with the part properly.
By collating all the robots onto one platform, we can enable the robots to operate collectively rather than individually. If all the robots are on one platform and under one traffic control, they will be able to share their location and become very efficient.
Our focus was to provide a solution that offers ease of use and eliminate the customer's need to outsource components and programming. The integration of our MSCL, ROS, and several Open-Source API's, allows for the application of available and compatible software.
Generating accurate height data of boxes relative to the conveyor system is challenging to achieve with a single measurement tool. More often than not, this requires additional system configuration and potentially scripting.
With all the benefits offered by robots, the biggest barrier is the complexity of programming. More specifically, the expertise required to effectively program a robot can take years.
With solutions that enable intuitive and harmonized programming of robots from a wide range of manufacturers using pre-developed programming templates, effort and costs are reduced considerably. This makes their use attractive for more and more companies.
The role of automotive software has changed profoundly in recent years. Software is now being used and is relied upon for critical operations that were previously being performed by hardware.
Linux has a lot to offer the automation industry. It is a stable and scalable alternative to Windows operating systems that allows for arguably greater connectivity between devices and systems.
The Platform Facilitates Accelerated Development of Innovative, Power-Efficient, High Computing Robots and Drones for Enterprise, Industrial and Professional Service Applications.
In a recent project for Mercedes-Benz (Daimler AG) RobCo S.W.A.T. used RoboDK software to simulate ABB and Motoman robots working on a range of automotive manufacturing tasks including assembly and painting.
Some new technologies helped the evolution of mobile apps towards automation. It all started with the advanced data analytics engines and APIs incorporated by enterprise app developers to address user needs more precisely and contextually.
Robots and software work hand in hand, but what does this mean in concrete terms? How is software essential for robots? Why and how is it necessary to develop software specifically adapted to robotic applications? What are the future trends in software for robotics?

IDS NXT: a platform for a new generation of vision systems for industrial applications. It lays the groundwork to provide easy-to-use yet flexible complete systems that can be used to implement all steps of a vision solution. With IDS NXT ocean, a complete solution especially for AI-based image processing is now available. It allows to solve tasks where classic, rule-based image processing has reached its limits - without any programming effort.
