What is a collaborative robot used for?

What is a collaborative robot used for?

In this short answer, we answer the question about what a collaborative robot is asked by one of our beloved followers. For a long time, industrial robots, which were primarily programmable robotic arms, were put in a cage separated from human workers because they were not safe to be used in proximity of humans. They were mainly used to conduct dangerous tasks unsafe for human workers. For a long time, industrial robots were put in a cage separated from human workers. Fast forward several decades, with the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), Machine Learning (ML), advanced sensors, and…

Robot Grasping in a Heavily Cluttered Environment

Robot Grasping in a Heavily Cluttered Environment

Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) student Dongwon Son has recently published interesting research about reactive grasping in a heavily cluttered environment in IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters. Reactive robot grasping in a Heavily cluttered environment. Courtesy of Samsung Research and Dongwon Son. This study proposed a closed-loop framework for predicting the six-degree-of-freedom (dof) grasp in a heavily cluttered environment using vision observations. prediction results in robot grasping. Courtesy of Samsung Research and Dongwon Son. Experimental results on a robot in an environment with a lot of clutter showed that the grasping success rate had improved quantitatively compared…

Vector Home Robot

Vector Home Robot

Vector from Digital Dream Labs (DDL) is a home robot that can tell you the weather, time your dinner, take photos, react to your touch, or even carry you to bed. Actually, not really. The last part was a joke. Vector home robot Through different embedded sensors, Vector explores and interacts with its environment, recognizes objects, and avoids obstacles. Thanks to the Vision Intelligence 200 Platform's powerful image processing and machine learning, the Vector can navigate autonomously and detect objects and sounds. There are also touch sensors, four microphones arranged in an array to detect sounds and recognize natural speech,…

Robot Mimics Human Expressions

Robot Mimics Human Expressions

Up to now, you've probably seen Ameca from Engineered Arts, a humanoid robot that looks too human and can interact and react like a human using a human-like artificial body (AB) along with a human-like artificial intelligence (AI). The Ameca robot from Engineered Arts can mimic human expressions and emotions. Engineered Arts released a new video this week that showcases Ameca's ability to mimic human expressions. An iPhone 12 with AR Kit is used for facial motion capture and the action is mapped to Ameca's face in real-time. I promise this isn't a sci-fi movie, this is a real robot…
