Smart floating arms
They move like snakes and reach places that are too narrow or dangerous for humans. The robust robotic arms of the Tokyo-based company HiBot take inspection, maintenance and repair to new levels. In the past, maintenance was not given much consideration in the construction of industrial plants, buildings or bridges. As a consequence, the maintenance…
AGVs: The solutions for logistics?
AGVs (automated guided vehicles) are essential tools in the current commercial and industrial transformation. But what challenges do they need to address? The AGV market: why are we seeing such a boom today? Back in the 1950s, car manufacturers used guided vehicles in their factories to distribute mechanical parts. Since then, different methods have been…
The field of the future
We are witnessing the start of a robotic evolution that is sweeping through all aspects of agriculture.
