Easy and Unobtrusive Failure Recovery

Unfortunately, robots don’t run smoothly all the time. Robot hardware or software could fail, an end-effector could break, or even some part of the workspace itself could fail (e.g., a conveyor belt providing materials to one of the robots). Failures cause a disproportionate amount of downtime.  To get back up […]

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 […]

Why Intelligent Robots Require More Than AI

Robots are touted as the solution to multiple manufacturing problems from increasing productivity to solving the labor shortage. However, the promise of autonomous machines currently lags the underlying technology. One of the key constraints with robotic automation is the risk of collisions. Robots need a way to work in harmony […]
