Motion Control and Vision Advances Drive Collaborative Robot Applications

Sensing, thinking, and actuation are key robot operations, but motors and AI are expanding what robots can do.


Industrial automation is ideal for precise, repeatable tasks, but what happens when robots leave safety cages and bolted-down production lines? Advances in perception and motion control enable robots to work more closely with humans, be more flexible and precise, and deal with more complex environments.

In this Special Focus Issue, we look at how sensors, software, and motors have been combined to provide new levels of utility and collaboration for robot arms and mobile platforms. From lidar to artificial intelligence at the edge, autonomous systems are becoming more capable.

Learn about how robots are becoming more capable for applications such as machine tending, pick-and-place operations, and welding. The free download also examines how these technologies are improving robot and vehicle navigation. In addition, automation is spreading beyond manufacturing to for agriculture, e-commerce, and more.

Topics covered include:

  • Innovations in cameras, lidar, and collaborative robotics
  • How picking robots are getting faster and more accurate
  • AI and programming enable more thorough inspections
  • Robotics providers receive recognition as innovators
  • How robots are shaping the future of industry
