Artificial intelligence (AI) can improve many operational aspects of AGVs and AMRs, and increase worker satisfaction. As such, AI must be a fundamental building block in robotics design and harnessed by management.
Distribution Centers are exploiting data and using Labor Management Software (LMS) to optimize processes, overcome labor challenges, and drive automation deployments, including robotics systems.
Flexiv provides turnkey automation solutions based on adaptive robots powered by advanced force control, computer vision and AI technologies.
In this RoboBusiness Direct session, SWRI’s Matt Robinson describes how ROS can support complex, large scale, industrial automation. In a follow-on session, DreamVu’s Mark Davidson reviews the benefits of omnidirectional 3D vision for UV disinfection robots.
The FarmWise agricultural weeding-as-a-service solution, which leverages computer vision, machine learning and robotics technologies, can be optimized for different crops, soil types, and growth stages.
By leveraging a combination of sensing / digitalization and AI / ML, Omnirobotic provides “high-mix” manufacturers a spray, coating and finishing solution, delivered as a service, that reduces robot programming costs while increasing productivity.
Greater sensing, data collection and deep learning that exploit farmers’ collective wisdom can enable closed-loop control systems that deliver on the promise of true autonomy on the farm. Such autonomy, including autonomous plowing, would free up precious time for the farmer, and deliver greater agricultural yield and consistency of outcome.
Before deploying autonomous driving systems (ADS), we must know how, when, and whether they will work. There is no excuse for allowing the attention of drivers to stray during automated operation – if a system is really semi- and not fully autonomous.
The total number of robotics transactions held steady year over year, but the autonomous vehicle and manufacturing automation providers received less investment. Healthcare systems, field robots, and drones got funding in September 2020.
In her RoboBusiness Direct session at 2:00 PM on Thursday, October 8th, Apeksha Kumavat, co-founder and chief engineer of Gatik, will explain how constraining the operational design domain can help autonomous vehicles hasten time to market for retailers and logistics providers.
In this presentation, Paolo Pirjanian, CEO at Embodied, will discuss how the relationship between humans and machines is evolving, including how robots and robotic technology can be applied for social good.
To bring Embodied’s Moxie social companion robot to as many families as possible, the company knew the price point needed to be much more affordable than robots of the past AND present. Here’s how they did it.
The future of manufacturing is dynamic, flexible human-machine collaboration. Veo Robotics provides a 3D sensing and control system that makes standard industrial robots responsive to humans so they can work safely side-by-side.
Robotics fundings, mergers, and acquisitions in July 2020 stayed at comparable levels with transactions from a year ago and June.
With machine learning, algorithms are automatically generated from large datasets, speeding the development and reducing the difficulty of creating complex systems, including robotics systems. While data at scale is what makes accurate machine learning ‘go’, the data used to train ML models must also be very accurate and of high quality.
Both China and the US are incorporating AI into their industrial manufacturing operations… China from the top down and the US from the bottom up.
Recent advances in machine and deep learning have improved SLAM techniques, leading to an increased richness in maps, with semantic scene understanding improving localization, mapping quality and robustness.
