Dexterous manipulation has been particularly challenging for robotics developers and suppliers. Advances in machine vision, machine learning, motion control, and end-of-arm tooling are allowing robots to more accurately pick mixed items in varied orientations.
This has implications for e-commerce order fulfillment, parts inspection, recycling, and other supply chain and manufacturing applications. In this webcast, the expert panelists will discuss how automated piece picking can now meet industry needs.
