The Intera 5 software platform provides an easy-to-deploy approach to industrial automation. The software innovation drives manufacturing productivity around the world and enables a high acceptance of the new robot co-workers of your staff. Rethink Robotics GmbH provides increased functionality and capabilities through frequent software releases. To this day, the Intera 5 software platform that was developed to control Sawyer remains the most innovative operating system in collaborative robotics.
Many vendors call their robots easy to use, but the Intera software platform has a graphical user interface that lets users train the robot, even if they have never written a line of code or programmed a robot before. Using the industry leading train-by-demonstration capabilities of Intera, anyone can interact directly with the robot’s arm to easily train new tasks.
Intera features a powerful user interface called Intera Studio that lets users access robot tasks and fine-tune the details of the task from their laptop. Intera Studio gives users the ability to create, modify, and monitor tasks quickly, while getting advanced capabilities to control the robot.
Intera Insights provides critical production metrics directly on the robot, and can identify production anomalies before they become problems. Key performance Indicators, such as cycle times and part counts, are accessible on the factory floor in real time. The same customizable data is also fed to Intera Studio, providing visibility to other team members.
Sawyer has an embedded Cognex vision system in its arm that allows the robot to locate objects or inspect for part presence. This vision system enables the Robot Positioning System (RPS) that looks for changes in the robots environment and automatically responds to work-cell variation. Users can also easily and seamlessly integrate external cameras in minutes and with this flexibility drastically reduce typical machine vision integration costs.
Rethink Robotics provides a completely integrated cobot solution: robot arm, Intera software platform, ClickSmart gripper technology, embedded Cognex vision camera, force sensing, and production level metrics in real time. This integrated approach enables the easy to use and flexible fast deployment and provides a rapid return on investment.
