Humatics’ microlocation technology has been accepted into Universal Robots’ UR+ partner program effective June 6, 2022. Acceptance in the UR+ program was approved after extensive testing of the location enhancing technology.
Humatics Microlocation technology delivers sub-millimeter precise real-time location data for robotics, humans, tool control and other use cases to achieve three-dimensional control and collaboration in your environment.
The UR+ program is designed to reduce time, cost and risk of automation for companies that are using Universal Robots to solve business problems with robotic automation and cobot collaboration.
“We are excited to have Humatics as part of our rich ecosystem of third party solutions to help and add value to applications that require fine grain navigation and control to improve performance,” said Joe Campbell, senior manager of applications development and strategic marketing of Universal Robots.
Humatics can now be quickly implemented by UR customers directly in their platform to address numerous application challenges. The real-time location data capabilities enhance the ability for stand-alone precise control of UR robotic arms as well as how robotic arms can work in motion with numerous mobile robots from Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR).
“Being accepted into the UR+ program demonstrates the value of having precise location information for complex navigation and control applications in the manufacturing and medical markets. We expect UR users to achieve significant success by adding the Humatics Microlocation capabilities to improve operational efficiency and increased profitability,” said Shawn Henry, CEO, Humatics.
