HOW TO NAVIGATE ROBOTS IN OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENTS

White paper written by Kevin Yu, Ph.D. Graduate in Robotics and Senior Computer Engineer at SuperDroid Robots. In the world of ground robotics, there are robots that can help the elderly with everyday tasks and robots that are autonomously navigating other planets. In any application, robot manufacturers have to understand a project and with this it always entails the environment that the robot is functioning in. When navigating different environments, there are many questions that arise: such as temperature, humidity, ground surface, static obstacles, dynamic obstacles, materials in the environment, visibility, lighting, radio interference, GPS availability, and so much more.

OFFLINE ROBOT PROGRAMMING SOFTWARE: THE DIFFERENTIATOR IN ROBOTIC THERMAL SPRAYING

The use of robotic automation paves a path towards increasing productivity and output quality, while reducing costs and time to market. However, the adoption of offline programming software, allowing manufacturers to get the most out of their robotic investment, is the differentiator.

15 WAYS TO BOOST SUSTAINABILITY

Until recently, sustainability initiatives have been focused on the manufacturing side of the supply chain. But the spotlight is now on warehouse and transportation, and the measures companies can put in place to reduce their ecological impact. There are a number of ways you can cut your carbon footprint, while simultaneously improving the cost-effectiveness of your whole operation.

THE GREAT EXPLODING WAREHOUSE: HOW TRUE HUMAN-ROBOT COLLABORATION IS THE ONLY SOLUTION

Are you prepared to meet the ever-growing demand? Can your warehouse be optimized without adding to your footprint or your labor costs? The answer is yes. A recent white paper created by Plus One Robotics with partner Interact Analysis explores the implications of surging demand, dropping availability of labor, and the ROI of automating the right way (via true human-robot collaboration).

Learn more about how Southco’s access hardware solutions can help you protect your smart city application.

THE FUTURE OF WAREHOUSE ROBOTICS

The pandemic meant warehouses had to cope with social distancing and staff absences. It also caused a massive e-commerce boost and has led to a protracted labor shortage. All this has forced warehouse managers to take a deeper look at the possibilities offered by warehouse automation and to accelerate any existing plans they had to automate. In this report, we look into new solutions and real-world cases which are the reasons why AMRs should be one of your choices in your decision.

DRONES-IN-A-BOX WHITEPAPER

This highly capable device lends great promise to modernize a multitude of industries, resulting in economically & environmentally smarter, faster, cost efficient and more streamlined services. This extensive whitepaper discusses the operational challenges plus what's next for drone-in-a-box.

TIME OF FLIGHT FORGES AHEAD: DESIGN TIPS TO BOOST 3D PERFORMANCE AND CUT INTEGRATION TIME & COST

Have you wondered how to boost the performance of your 3D Time of Flight imaging application and at the same time cut your integration time and cost? Our newest hands-on guidebook describes how you can optimize the benefits of Time of Flight by considering various factors such as the environment of the application and the target object properties in the scene.

THE BIG PROBLEM WITH SMALL DRONES

In a new whitepaper, Teledyne FLIR Defense, part of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY), finds that a multi-layered approach, incorporating common architectures and information sharing, among other imperatives, is needed to address the threat to life and property posed by weaponized use of small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS).

THE FUTURE OF SMART LOGISTICS AUTOMATION

Decathlon’s recent growth has been rapid. To continue to grow and compete globally in the highly demanding retail and eCommerce sector, Decathlon needs to ensure its warehouses are underpinned by an automation solution that delivers in terms of cost, reliability, efficiency, flexibility and – crucially – scalability. Decathlon began its cooperation with Geek+ in China – where a highly competitive labor market makes hiring and retaining team members one of the biggest challenges for many local businesses. It was the challenge of finding enough teammates that initially made Decathlon decide to initiate a search for a radical new automation solution.

UNLEASHING YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN

Technology has played a part in the evolution of the retail landscape. The rise of ecommerce has commoditised once-speciality products, whilst other categories have been driven into a war waged on price and convenience. It has driven many new productivity changes too. Increasingly, budgets are being squeezed by the tough P&Ls whilst your customers – both stores and shoppers – demand high standards and more stringent SLAs. So, now the hidden heroes that are responsible for keeping the supply chain turning must find their way through the challenges and continually optimise the operation.

SMART FACTORY 4.0

The Fourth Industrial Revolution – or Industry 4.0 – is well under way, and it’s bringing about fundamental changes in many sectors. The “Fourth Industrial Revolution” refers to the concept that there have been four identifiable industrial revolutions in history. Read this white paper to learn more about the material handling in the factory of the future.

THE NEW ERA OF SUPPLY CHAIN AFTER COVID-19

The coronavirus outbreak has brought the entire world economy to a virtual standstill for a while. Most countries’ governments have ordered a lockdown and arranged for a halt to business activities in all sectors of the economy except those which were considered “essential”, such as food and medicine. This is a situation that had never happened before on a global scale, and it is still ongoing as this report is being produced. Grocery and pharmaceutical stores have been the only shops open on a typical high street anywhere in the world. Read this white paper to learn more about the new era of supply chain after Covid-19
