Today’s robot workspaces are designed to detect worker entrances—perhaps with a fence or a sensor—and which instructs all of the robots to idle. Why? Because today’s robots don’t perceive and react quickly enough at typical speeds to operate safely within close proximity to people. Having a fence or sensor that […]Read More
Realtime Robotics’ technology allows this Yaskawa Motoman GP7 to operate at full speed while autonomously avoiding unexpected obstacles that enter its workspace. Traditionally, a robot moving at these speeds would only be operated behind a cage in order to ensure safety. Realtime Robotics provides Motion Planning and Spatial Perception solutions […]Read More
