The Robot Report February 2019 issue on cobots

We hope you enjoy the latest edition of The Robot Report, a special print section dedicated to collaborative robotics that was featured in the February 2019 issue of Design World, our sister publication and flagship publication at WTWH Media. Here is a breakdown of the collaborative robotics topics covered inside:

Inside NVIDIA’s Collaborative Robotics Lab
The Robot Report takes you inside NVIDIA first full-scale robotics research lab, which recently opened in Seattle. The lab is tasked with driving breakthrough research to enable next-gen cobots.

Swedish Machine Shop Boosts Capacity with Cobot Cell
This case study examines how Universal Robots and OnRobot help FT Produktion save 500 hours when manufacturing a series of 150,000 parts.

6 Advances in Machine Manipulation
Robotic grasping is continuing to evolve and diversify in response to widening applications. Eugene Demaitre, senior editor of The Robot Report, examines 6 recent advances in machine manipulation.

Reinforcement Learning Shows Promise for Industrial Robotics
The current hype about reinforcement learning around robotic applications has a valid motivation, but it is not the main ingredient to guarantee success. This article was co-authored by Juan Aparicio and Dr. Eugen Solowjow from Siemens.

Is Automated Bin Picking Finally Here?
Eric Truebenbach, director of corporate development at Teradyne, says a truly universal bin-picking system needs to be usable by non-experts, quickly configurable, provide path planning with little or no tuning and be cost-effective.

Cobots Bring Automation to Novel Applications
From greenhouses to the operating room, cobots are coming. We share some unconventional examples of how cobots can serve in areas beyond manufacturing, pick-and-place operations, and machine tending.
