CoBots with the Sense of Touch

Robot technology is evolving rapidly. For example, force/torque sensors provide a robot with the sense of “touch.” With a collaborative robot (CoBot), touch is combined with intuitive ease-of-use to simplify many applications for the lay person. And remember that CoBots allow people and robots to work together. Here are some things that you can do [...]

Vision-Based Pick-and-Place

This video demonstrates the advanced automation potential of collaborative robots. We created this vision-based pick-and-place demo in 30 minutes using a CoBot from Universal Robots with end-effector hardware and software from Robotiq. Plug-and-play camera hardware and software allow quick part teaching and design changes for a fast time to production. Robotiq's object identification software uses machine learning to [...]
