People and Robots, Working Together At Last

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 […]

Putting the Need for Interlocks in the Rearview Mirror

If one robot is good, then more robots should be better. In theory, putting several robots in a workspace, with all of them working simultaneously, should greatly boost productivity. In practice, however, the marginal benefits of adding robots are slim. Why? Programming! Engineers must orchestrate all of the robot motions […]

How Realtime Reduces the Friction Associated with Deploying Industrial Robots

Instead of painstakingly programming each move and coordinating multiple robots to work together, Realtime takes command of the movement and coordination functions, autonomously moving single or multiple robots to their goals while avoiding both static and dynamic objects in the environment. The processor removes the need for manual iterative programming […]
