The new whitepaper summarizes what requirements a suitable leak detector must fulfill and how different product offerings compare with regard to these requirements. This whitepaper provides some guidelines on what throughput can be achieved with different products and settings, and also gives some guidance on how to properly design a robotic leak testing station. Last but not least, the whitepaper concludes with a checklist to use for your robotic leak testing projects.
Robotics is the latest advent in the multicentury trend toward the automation of production. The number of industrial robots, a key component of Industry 4.0, is accelerating. These machines are built by major multinationals and, increasingly, venture-backed startups. As the segment continues to mature, data are coming in that allow founders, investors and policymakers to establish a framework for thinking about these companies. In this special sector report, we take a data-driven approach to emerging topics in the industry, including business models, performance metrics and capitalization trends. Finally, we zoom out and consider how automation affects the labor market. In our view, the social implications of this industry will be massive and will require continuous examination by those driving this technology forward.
Progressive business leaders are capitalizing on new capabilities afforded by cobotics and optimizing efforts on both the business and personnel fronts.
The white paper covers what types of parts can be measured with a Q-Span system, considering part mass and size, features and tolerances, and manufacturing process. The discussion includes:
• A detailed description of how the Q-Span System takes measurements, incorporating robotic pick-and-place
• How to validate measurements.
• How to demonstrate correlation with existing measurement methods.
Computer vision coupled with machine learning and/or artificial intelligence gives the robot or cobot increased technical abilities and the opportunity to perform more complex tasks. This data can be communicated rapidly via 5G technology to speed data to enable fast actions to enable safe interactions and reactions to the surroundings and humans working close by. To learn how computer vision is allowing “cobots” to work securely, safely and innovatively with human workers, read this Wind River use case, “Computer Vision and Robotics Expand Industrial Capabilities”.
The white paper, titled ‘Adaptive Robots and the Future of Industrial Automation’, outlines the progress from the first industrial robots of the 1990s, ideal for tasks involving repeated trajectories, to that of the collaborative robots (or ‘cobot’), integrated with safety features able to protect humans from hazards in the environment.
