We have extensive knowledge in collaborative robotics, in particular ABB’s robot YuMi. Collaborative robots differ from traditional robots in that programs are more influenced by the robot user. Programming a collaborative robot using the interface of a traditional robot is challenging. For the collaborative robots to be accessible and easy to program they need a programming interface that is easy to understand and operate and adapted to the possibilities of the robot.
ABB has developed a library with easy to use functionality which Cognibotics has contributed to. The library provides automatic setup and calibration routines for the robot system and hands, step-by-step configuration guides, user support for creating vision applications, efficient pick-and-place and palletizing applications that use the Smartgripper cameras, fingers, and suction cups.
