Application fields

 

 
 

Flexible grasping & handling

 

Our solutions for flexible robotic gripping include machine learning methods that also allow realiable and robust gripping of unknown workpieces with variable geometries. This enables industrial robots to detect, locate, and finally grasp objects with unknown geometries. No costly sensor systems, CAD models or other information is needed.

We offer tailor-made/custom-fit robot skills for flexible robot grasping under consideration of various sensor and gripping principles, e.g. mechanical finger and jaw grippers, as well as suction and magnetic grippers. In addition to stationary exposed objects, we grasp objects in motion with visual-servoing technologies and realize the flexible bin picking. Find out more in our technical article on flexible robotics.

Adaptive assembly & haptic tasks

 

Our implementations for adaptive assembly and other haptic robotic skills enable intelligent motion control based on the physical interaction of the robot with its environment. Accordingly, we provide general software services to sensitively perform haptic and contact-related robotics tasks.

We offer the development and integration of flexible robot skills for haptic robotic tasks based on machine learning methods of supervised and explorative learning. In simulation environments, motion and reaction/feedback strategies are learned and optimized before they are used on real robot systems.

Human robot collaboration

 

Our systems for seamless human robot collaboration establish hybrid work systems including robots performing monotonous and repetitive tasks. In contrast, humans use their sensorimotor skills, abstraction and problem solving in close cooperation. The manual work steps are supported by user-centered methods of human machine interaction.

We offer the development and integration of collaborative work systems that synergistically combine the capabilities of humans and robots. The results are optimized workflows and highly flexible and reliable processes with a high degree of adaptability and high efficiency.

Mobile Manipulation

 

In addition to autonomous navigation of the mobile platform, our integrations of mobile robot systems also include software intelligence for flexible location handling, assembly and production tasks. Thus, especially for small and medium-sized companies and moderate lot size, classic (collaborative) robot systems can be better utilized and quickly amortized. Collision avoidance and optimal path planning can be implemented for both the mobile platform and the robotic arm.

We offer tailor-made implementation of use cases in production environments and beyond. Learn more in our technical article on the technology focus “on-demand pick & delivery with mobile robots.”

Modular Technology Portfolio

The foundation for the tailor-made implementation of flexible robotic applications is the seamless interaction of our technologies in the areas of control, AI and user interaction. With the help of our modular system, we combine and network them accurately.
