The next generation robots are advancing, it’s not that they are replacing by humans but it could interact with people in much better than its predecessors. The enhanced compatibility, adaptability and lower price has led to develop and reprogram robotics projects that will be useful throughout their life time.
The Power of Collaboration
The collaborative robot is an example of next generation machine. The new robots must be programmable, so that to reuse them is the main aim of the myriad projects.
- According to Bill Culley, president and co-founder, Empire Robotics, programming is easy and it does not require any high level training, relatively easier to re-purpose the robot.
- The new machines generated had lessen the technical burden of robotics projects. People without any robotics experience will soon program robots and integrate them says Ms. Litzenberger.
Lower Costs, Greater Returns
Though the next generation robots are more effective but the cost have fallen than their predecessors. From many years, robots are well suited to the automotive industry but the new programmed robotics could make inroads with various manufacturers because the new technology allows the robots to be changed to run on different application which means better ROI.
Here are two of the new-breed project teams that are pushing the boundaries of robotics.
Lowe’s: By these shopping in big stores is a pleasant experience. The pilot project was created by Lowe’s to guide customers via stores, assist to recognize merchandise within the cavernous spaces by using various speaking language. This company constantly evolved and change according to customer demands in the field of robotics technology to introduce a robot to the public.
Jeva: The Jeva robot helps people with physical disabilities. This Jeva robot will assist people in doing their house hold activities which will be a helper to consumer with disabilities. The new robot of Jeva is able to lift 2 kilograms weight and before the prototype was just finish as early as possible but now the key is to improve the design phase.
Robots have revolutionized the worlds of manufacturing and beyond.
- In 1961, the industrial robot was the world’s first robot that followed step-by-step directions to sequence that was named Unimate.
- In 1973, the first robot equipped with dynamic vision that was used to tight and lose the bolts.
- In 1985, the Z-shaped revolutionary arm was developed by German engineers.
- The world’s fastest picking-up robot was developed in 1998 by ABB in Switzerland.
- To allow soldiers to remain at a safe distance, in 2002 iRobot deploys its multi-mission robot.
- In 2010, Japan’s Fanuc Robotics launched the first learning-controlled robot.
- The first robot that is able to read and respond to human is Pepper which was released in 2015.
