Smarter than the average robot
What can an adaptive manufacturing robot with common sense do? It can automatically react to environmental changes and alter its behavior to account for unexpected events—so it can continue to work productively after missing a pick-up or dropping a part. It can visually detect parts and instantly adapt to variations in part placement and conveyor speed. It can also adjust to changes in surface heights without being told.
This “awareness” makes Baxter an invaluable asset, and informs a suite of safety features that make it perfectly safe to work around.
