Providing the right motor for small precision devices can be challenging, as New Scale Robotics found when it designed a parallel gripper for cobots.
When programming a robot to perform a task, it is very often the case that the robot motions involved must not cause the robot to collide with itself, its environment, its tooling and/or payload, or other robots. Robot programmers can either manually teach the robot trajectories/waypoints that move the robot and its end effector to […]
Many work processes would be almost unthinkable today without robots. But robots operating in manufacturing facilities have often posed risks to workers because they are not responsive enough to their surroundings. To make it easier for people and robots to work in close proximity in the future, Prof. Matthias Althoff of the Technical University of […]
