The Top Six Types of Industrial Robots in 2020

June 30, 2020|

The ubiquity of robots in factories and industry has led to a familiarity with robots as a tool of automation. Rapid technological advancements have allowed many manufacturing sectors to rely on robots for everyday tasks. PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates that up to 45% of work activities can be successfully automated. The impact robots can have on a company's operation is well-established. By now, many executives have heard of SCARA or Polar robots, and they are aware that these advanced machines can increase their performance and production. What other robots are out there, and how can they benefit your business? In this article, we'll take a look at the top six types of industrial robots currently on the market. What are the Major Types of Industrial Robots in 2020? All robots perform the same standard functions: They use sensors to detect changes in their environment and manipulators to interact with their surroundings. Robots typically perform two primary tasks: harvesting and positioning. How they do this, though, is as varied as the tasks to which they are assigned. Articulated Robots Articulated robots are the most common types of [...]

Lights Out for COVID-19

May 13, 2020|

We are facing an unprecedented global catastrophe. At the time of this article, the COVID-19 virus has infected millions of people worldwide and claimed the lives of a quarter of a million. Human ingenuity, creative problem-solving, and a lot of bravery have helped to keep us moving forward. Smart machines and artificial intelligence have played a significant role in maintaining factory operations with minimal human presence while the majority of us quarantine daily.

Interpreting the Three Laws of Robotics

April 30, 2020|

Discover Isaac Asimov, creator of one of the most popularized concepts in robotics and A.I. theory: The Laws of Robotics. These laws are practical, pragmatic guidelines for how roboticists should program these advanced tools. They already govern the operation of many machines and computer algorithms, and in some cases, they have already been neglected. As technology evolves, ethical questions about A.I. and robotics become increasingly important. Let's learn more about this topic!

What IS the Best Programming Language for Industrial Robotics (Depending on Your Level of Skills)?

April 8, 2020|

Numerous programming languages exist, each with its own advantages. Java is the most common programming language, and therefore the one your colleagues will likely be able to help you with the most. However, The C programming language and Python are both nearly as common, and all are highly regarded in the robotics industry. Visual programming languages, like LabVIEW, have made programming easy to understand and accessible to a variety of engineers. Depending on how well acquainted you are with programming, different languages offer different benefits. So, which one is right for you?

How Can AI Optimize your Robotic Process Automation?

March 25, 2020|

As robots become increasingly ubiquitous, so does the demand for artificial intelligence. A robot workforce provides the biggest advantages when it can think, adapt, change, and learn all on its own. This necessarily leads to decreased human involvement and intervention. Factory owners can expect the field of AI to continue to evolve rapidly, and robots may soon possess computational skills that rival our own intellectual abilities.

The Top 3 Best Robotic Automation Process Tools

February 18, 2020|

Robotic process automation (RPA) provides numerous benefits over using humans to perform similar tasks. Among the advantages are improved standardization of workflow, reduced error rate, and superior management of repetitive tasks. Several RPA tools number among the best and most reputable on the market. So, how do you know which one to choose? Let DIY-Robotics walk you through some of the top robotic automation process tools and help you decide on the right one for your operational needs.
