For decades, manufacturers have had very few cost-effective options for low volume, high mix production jobs. Then came Baxter – the first safe, flexible, affordable alternative to fixed automation. Companies globally have integrated Baxter into their workforce, and gained a competitive advantage.
Baxter is a proven industrial automation solution for a wide range of tasks – from line loading and machine tending, to packaging and material handling.
Below you will find five of the most significant benefits you can obtain by automating your production – all of these benefits have made the UR cobots a game changer within the industrial and collaborative robot industry.
Patented technology lets operators with no programming experience quickly set up and operate our cobots with intuitive, 3D visualization. Simply move the robot arm to desired waypoints or touch the arrow keys on the easy-to-use touchscreen tablet.
Universal Robots has revolutionized the Cobot set-up, reducing typical robotic deployment measured in weeks to a matter of hours. The average set-up time reported by our customers is only half a day. The out-of-box experience for an untrained operator to unpack the cobot, mount it, and program the first simple task is typically less than an hour.
The iCub is the humanoid robot developed at IIT as part of the EU project RobotCub and subsequently adopted by more than 20 laboratories worldwide. It has 53 motors that move the head, arms & hands, waist, and legs. It can see and hear, it has the sense of proprioception (body configuration) and movement (using accelerometers and gyroscopes). We are working to improve on this in order to give the iCub the sense of touch and to grade how much force it exerts on the environment.
The goal of RobotCub was to study cognition through the implementation of a humanoid robot the size of a 3.5 year old child: the iCub. This is a fully open source & hardware project, one of a kind! This is the project that started the iCub both in hardware and software.
Bulldog(professional Robot) is a robust and versatile middle size plazfrom designed for outdoor operations.All-terrain,all-weather for wheel skid-steer,the robot can climb stairs,slope,and maneuver directly toa point of interest on rough road outside.The robot can be teleoperated,follow the leader or use GPS waypoint navigation.
