Collaborative robotics technology enables humans and robots to work together safely and effectively in a cage-free environment without the risk of injury and damage. Collaborative robots, also known as cobots, are designed with a large number of advanced sensors, software and edge equipment that help them quickly and easily detect and adapt to any intervention that enters the work area.
Cobots are designed with more rounded lines so that there are no pinch points.
They also have the ability to detect any abnormal force applied to their joints while they are moving. These robots can be programmed to react very quickly when any human contact is applied, to slow down, stop or move to another predefined position.
In relatively simpler applications, cobots are simpler to program and integrate than industrial robots, as they can also be manually manipulated. At the same time, they can work in a smaller space than other robots and save space in factories. In this way, collaborative robot technology provides various advantages to enterprises, production lines and workers.
We are the official robotics system integrator of Universal Robots, the world’s number one cobot supplier with a 60 percent market share.
AGV is an acronym for Automated Guided Vehicle. The AGV is a self-driving vehicle that runs along defined paths without human intervention.
AGVs take the defined products and materials from point A to point B in order to carry out the transportation operations in their area.
There are 5 different types of AGVs classified in different ways;
- Automated Guided Cart (AGC): They are vehicles that carry a load by taking it on.
- Tugger AGV: They are vehicles that carry a load by pulling.
- Unit Load Automated Guided Vehicle: It is a vehicle that carries a load by taking it on itself by means of a load transfer system.
- Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR): Autonomous mobile robots are robots with natural navigation that can redefine their route.
- Automatic Forklift AGV: They are driverless forklifts.
Its navigation technology determines the AGVs path; how they find their way from point A to point B. There are currently 5 different navigation technologies;
- Laser navigation
- Magnetic tape navigation
- Natural navigation (Mapping or LIDAR technology)
- Magnetic spot navigation
- Wired navigation
