Choreograph software release 3.2.0: Introducing Robot Data

Posted by Alex Callcott on Aug 19, 2020 9:29:04 AM

In August 2020, we launched version 3.2.0 of Choreograph for Eva and with it, an opportunity for us to work even closer with our customers to provide you with better support for their automation needs. We are therefore very excited to announce Robot Data: a new service that will allow Automata to collect, store and visualise usage data from new and deployed robots.

Machine vision: Integrating Eva with a smart camera

Posted by Dr Andrea Antonello on Dec 9, 2019 12:53:36 PM

Whenever people think of automating tasks to increase throughput, remove manual bottlenecks or manage spikes in order volume, the assumption is that the robot will be able to fully replicate the way a human performs said task. The reality is that humans are capable of carrying out complex manoeuvres and processing information without the need for additional equipment. Vision systems are becoming a crucial part of robotics, allowing a robot arm to ‘see’ the task that it’s meant to perform and opening up the possibility of more complex operations.

Any robotic solution needs to be integrated with its environment and this means that manufacturers need to consider how a robot will interact with other elements and technologies in their factory, and how best to present the parts to the robot - sometimes this involves a custom jig, a bowl feeder or, more commonly, a vision system.
