The robot as an assistant and partner
In factory automation (manufacturing processes such as assembly, packaging and palletising), collaborative robotics is expected to open up new possibilities. Ideally, the advantages of humans (flexibility, judgement, creativity, experience, intuition and overview) and robots (endurance, precision and strength) are combined in such collaborative robotics applications. Collaborative robotics often uses a specially designed cobot (lightweight robot).
In the modern manufacturing environment, it is necessary to free workers from monotonous, dangerous and physically demanding tasks. This frees up the capacity of the workforce for more challenging and value-adding activities. The accuracy, repeatability and quality of purely manual tasks can be improved through human-machine collaboration.
In areas such as robotics and human-robot collaboration, the NAO robot is particularly suitable for low-threshold entry and qualification of humans. The choreography and design of NAO help to reduce initial scepticism, enabling successful collaboration in a wide range of areas, including education and basic programming. He is a programmable humanoid with 25 degrees of freedom movement, understanding 19 languages.
Companies are welcome to visit the model factory in Wildau and Cottbus and experience hands-on robotics applications. They can also invite the mobile robot NAO to their events or facilities.
