Smart robot: New OS a brain boost for collaborative robots
Instead of designing new hardware, what if we could make existing automation platforms even smarter?
Can we get more out of collaborative robots? That's the question that drove a new universal AI operating system two years in the making designed to make existing robots smarter and self-learning.
Collaborative robots have been, in many ways, the poster child of the most recent wave of automation. Where industrial robots have long been hulking Goliaths necessitating cages and kept far from human workers, the new breed of automation is flexible, easy to program, and, crucially, collaborative. Robots are venturing out of cages in a variety of task agnostic platforms, often robotic arms with several degrees of freedom that are small enough to sit on a tabletop.
