NVIDIAs RVT can learn new tasks after just 10 demos

NVIDIA Robotics Research has announced new work that combines text prompts, video input, and simulation to more efficiently teach robots how to perform manipulation tasks, like opening drawers, dispensing soap, or stacking blocks, in real life.  Generally, methods of 3D object manipulation perform better when they build an explicit 3D representation rather than only relying on camera images. NVIDIA wanted to find a method of doing that came with less computing costs and was easier to scale than explicit 3D representations like voxels. To do so, the company used a type of neural network called a multi-view transformer to create virtual views from the camera input.  The team’s multi-view transformer, Robotic View Transformer (RVT) , is both scalable and accurate. RVT takes camera images and task language descriptions as inputs and predicts the gripper pose action. In simulations, NVIDIA’s research team found that just one RVT model can work well across 18 RLBench tasks with 249 task

Celera Motion introduces larger Omni direct drive motors

Celera Motion introduces a larger version of their advanced Omni+ direct drive frameless motor. | Credit: Celera Celera Motion announced a new, larger version of its direct drive motor platform, the Omni+ Series . The Omni+ 130 mm (5.12 in) motor becomes the largest of the direct drive frameless motor series. All of the motors’ sizes offer the highest torque density and ultra-low cogging in a low profile and large aperture design. “The Omni+ Series is a game-changing product line designed specifically for surgical robotics and other high-precision applications,” said Facundo Lay, Motors and Mechatronics Product Manager at Celera Motion. “This groundbreaking series offers an unmatched combination of raw power, exceptional smoothness, and integration flexibility, setting a new standard for excellence in the precision-motion field. With Omni+, manufacturers can attain smoother, more accurate movements with less noise and vibration, all while optimizing space and simplifying their des

UR launches PolyScope X software platform

The PolyScope X interface. | Source: Universal Robots Universal Robots has announced PolyScope X a software platform with a new, customizable user interface, that will add new levels of flexibility to high-mix, low-volume machine tending automation. With PolyScope X, machine shop operators can achieve changeover times of less than 10 minutes – far below what is possible today with any other software. This will empower users to run more batches in a day and to run them in a more strategic and flexible way. PolyScope X is therefore ideal for high-mix, low-volume production and is introduced at a time when manufacturers all over the world are looking for increased flexibility to handle shifting and increasingly diverse orders. At the same time, PolyScope X introduces a powerful reworked programming experience and toolset. This enables integrators and OEM partners to structure their program code into operations that can be reused throughout the program, making each operation simple

Gather AI acquires assets of Ware Robotics to consolidate drone based inventory market

Gather AI , a provider of AI-powered autonomous inventory management solutions for warehouses using commodity hardware, announced that it is acquiring the business of Ware, another large player in the market. With this acquisition, Gather AI has doubled its staff to become a market leader in the competitive drone-based warehouse inventory space with 25 customers. The other two remaining competitors in this market are Swiss-based Verity, the first company to enter the market in 2014, and US-based Corvus Robotics . Both of these companies have built custom drones for gathering data in the warehouse. Verity is the largest of the four (now three) drone-based inventory management companies. “Understanding inventory levels is critical for creating accurate forecasts and managing in this environment. We offer real-time inventory visibility to our customers through our AI software which turns commodity drones into autonomous data-gathering machines,” Gather AI CEO Sankalp Arora said. “Acq

Industrial robot market to grow 5-7% out to 2027

Source: Interact Analysis Interact Analysis expects the global industrial robot market to grow 5-7% out to 2027. This long-term growth will be mostly driven by demand from the electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing industry.  The industrial robot market has faced challenges in the last few years, including project delays and decreased spending on automation projects, due to global economic volatility and supply chain disruptions. Despite this, long-term projections remain steady, with EV manufacturing and new energy-related applications pushing global demand for industrial robots.  From 2023 onwards, Interact Analysis predicts investment confidence will continue to be low in the short term, resulting in end-users delaying large capital investments in industrial robotics projects. In the long term, however, demand from EV manufacturing lines and sectors like intra-logistics will fuel market growth of 5-7%.  Interact Analysis expects the average selling prices of industrial robots to
