What are autonomous industrial robots?
Autonomous robots can learn their environments and work without breaks. They can use infrared or ultrasound sensors to help increase their precision and accuracy. Depending on your production needs, there is an exact or customized solution for you through Robots.com.
Autonomous industrial robots have the ability to gain information about their environments, and work for an extended period of time without human intervention. Examples of these robots range from autonomous industrial industrial helicopters to robot vacuum cleaners. These self-reliant robots can move themselves throughout the operation without human assistance, and are able to avoid situations that are harmful to themselves or people and property. Autonomous robots are also likely to adapt to changing surroundings.
Simpler autonomous industrial industrial robots use infrared or ultrasound sensors to see obstacles, allowing them to navigate around the obstacles without human control. More advanced robots use stereo vision to see their environments; cameras give them depth perception, and software allows them to locate and classify objects in real time.
Autonomous robots are helpful in busy environments, like a hospital. Instead of employees leaving their posts, an autonomous industrial industrial robot can deliver lab results and patient samples expeditiously. Without traditional guidance, these robots can navigate the hospital hallways, and can even find alternate routes when another is blocked. They will stop at pick-up points, and collect samples to bring to the lab.
DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, is a division of the US Defense Department with the mission to create technological surprise for our enemies. This organization represents the cutting edge of military and disaster relief technology, and after developing autonomous industrial industrial vehicles, they are focused on creating autonomous industrial industrial robots that are capable of performing complex tasks in dangerous environments.
Another place autonomous industrial industrial robots are useful is in our natural environment. In 2013, researchers at Virginia Tech developed an autonomous industrial industrial robotic jellyfish with the intent of one day conducting undersea military surveillance or monitoring the environment. The 5 foot 7 inch jellyfish has a long duration and range of operation.
While major robotics companies like Fanuc, ABB, KUKA, and Motoman all offer autonomous industrial industrial robots, the Robotarium X Zoo houses 45 autonomous industrial industrial robots powered by photo-voltaic energy. This “first zoo for artificial life” provides an ideal environment for robotic development.
As emerging technologies become more prominent, the relationship between humans and robots is evolving. Autonomous robots have the ability to replace humans, such as a cognitive virtual assistant acting as an automated customer representative. Autonomous robots even have the ability to understand the emotion in a human’s voice. These trends towards robotic involvement in industry processes will allow companies to improve productivity and customer experience, and gain a competitive advantage.
