Traditional vs. Collaborative Robots

Traditional Robots have been around since the late sixties and early seventies as hydraulic actuated arms with early versions of computerized numerical control controllers and to today's high accuracy servo arms with digital high speed PC/motion control and with the latest interface for communications. Collaborative Robots are somewhat new to the manufacturing environment with the ability to work within close proximity to human workers without the fear of harming them. Collaborative robots are flexible with high speed processors that are easy to set-up and program. Collaborative robots are ideally suited for assembly production lines with close human interaction.

Collaborative Robot Applications, Sensor Networks and IIoT/Industry 4.0

Recent developments in sensor level networks offer robot OEM and user benefits including faster & cheaper integration/startup through reduction in cabling, standardized connectors/cables/sensors and device parameterization. Better connection between sensors and controller supports robot supplier implementation of Industry 4.0/IIoT by making it easier to gather process, device and event data - this allows improved productivity/uptime, better troubleshooting, safer machines, preventative maintenance, etc. Sensor level networks enable closer human-robot collaboration by making it easier to align the robot's restricted and safeguarded spaces, simplifying creation of more dynamic safety zones and allowing creation of "layers" of sensors around a robot work area.

From Biologically Inspired Robots to Collaborative Manufacturing Systems
  • Collaborative Robots

Dr. Howie Choset

CTO, Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM)

From Biologically Inspired Robots to Collaborative Manufacturing Systems

The robotics field is experiencing a renaissance in the use and implementation of biologically-inspired approaches, most commonly seen in today’s transition from wheels and tracks to animal-inspired movements. With this transition, robots have become more collaborative in nature and better able to navigate their surroundings, allowing them to work more seamlessly and safely alongside human workers.

 

An iconic example of a biologically influenced robot comes from Dr. Choset and his research group’s development of snake robots. These snake robots are highly articulated robots that use many joints to thread through tightly packed volumes to access hard-to-reach locations through snake-inspired movements. In more traditional environments, the operators direct the joints, internal degrees of freedom, etc. to move to a position at a designated speed. In less predictable settings, like nuclear facility repair, the robots are controlled using compliance and force feedback information throughout the mechanism. While these snake robots have been deployed in diverse situations, including search and rescue efforts, the innovations from the development have also been successfully implemented in manufacturing environments, where precise models of the environment are more readily available. The innovations in utilizing compliance and force feedback for movement in unstable environments make the robots safer to work with and around humans in traditional settings.

 

In his presentation, Dr. Choset will share ways that modular robots – inspired by nature - can speed industrial automation, make collaborative robots safer, and how ARM is advancing the use of industrial robots through technology development and education.

The Future of Collaborative Robotics

Scott Denenberg

Senior Director, Hardware, VEO Robotics

The Future of Collaborative Robotics

Collaborative robots have been transforming industrial automation, enabling use of robots in many applications where it wasn't practical to use them before. However, the current generation of collaborative robots sacrifice performance to achieve safety. Speed and separation monitoring can be used to achieve safe collaboration for robots of any size, speed, and strength. But understanding a scene well enough to enforce these constraints requires powerful sensing capabilities. Perception-based human/robot collaboration places a number of challenging requirements on sensor technology. Sensors must have wide field-of view and long range. Since handling of occlusions in 3D space is critical, multiple sensors must operate without interference. Because high performance robots move very quickly, sensors must have low latency and high frame rate. And sensors must meet functional safety requirements for reliability as laid out in the ISO standards. Using perception and intelligence, we no longer have to limit collaboration to smaller, weaker robots. We can allow even the largest and most powerful robots to work closely with people. This will allow manufacturers to combine the creativity, dexterity, and judgement of people with the strength, speed, and precision of robotics. We believe this will increase both productivity and agility, and enable manufacturers to meet the ever growing demands of the modern economy.

  • Collaborative Robots

Zach Tomkinson

Sales Development Manager, Universal Robots

Application-Specific, No-Compromise Vision System Design for Collaborative Implementations

The challenges in integrating collaborative robots and vision systems is directly related to the advantages of the cobots themselves. One approach is to incorporate a camera into the robot itself, which relieves users of the complexity of choosing and integrating separate components. The second approach is to custom-design a vision system and integrate it with the robot for the exact requirements of each application. A third approach melds these options to provide the basis for no-compromise, application-specific systems. The concept relies on an ecosystem of vision components and software that have been tested and pre-certified to work with the collaborative robots. Together with built-in communication protocols in the robot, this approach allows companies to define exactly the right integrated system for each application and ROI requirement, and still maintain the ease of setup and programming and fast ROI that they expect of collaborative robots.
