The diffusion of lightweight robots is widening the opportunities of their use in manufacturing cells. In particular, the hardware adaptability to different operative conditions enables new challenging scenarios like, for example, those of co-presence of Read more
This year, the FourByThree consortium has also worked towards hosting a special session at IEEE’s conference on Emerging Technologies And Factory Automation (ETFA), which will take place in Limassol (Cyprus) on September 12-15 2017.
Last week, IK4-TEKNIKER hosted an Integration Camp and Plenary Meeting of the FourByThree consortium. During the Integration Camp the main components developed in the project by different partners were tested and integrated.
The global robotic market consists of a wide range of technologies that are advancing at light speed paces and expecting huge growths. This is especially seen within the collaborative branch. The collaborative robot market is expecting an incredibly high growth rate over the next few years. It is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 60.04% between 2016 and 2022, Read more

Robots are great at doing things they’ve been shown how to do, but when presented with a novel problem, such as an unfamiliar shape that needs to be gripped, they tend to choke. AI is helping there in the form of systems like Dex-Net, which uses deep learning to let a robotic arm improvise an effective grip for objects it’s never seen before.
