Rethink Robotics, a Boston-based company that搜狐娱乐’;s made a name for itself by building ‘;collaborative robots’; which can adapt to almost any manufacturing environment and task, is back with a new offering。 Known as Sawyer, the new bot is a welcomed upgrade to Baxter which sold thousands of units since it launched in 2012 and shifted the stupid-but-precise robot paradigm in the manufacturing environment。 But while small and large plants alike can make good use of Sawyer, Rethink Robotics says the friendly-faced robot will also impact education and research。

‘;Look, I have eyes and brows。 That means I won’;t take your job!’;

Traditional industrial robots have been around for decades and while their capacity to improve manufacturing yield is undeniable, they come with significant limitations。 They are very expensive and only make sense in a high volume, low mix model of manufacturing, which is why manufacturers today only automate 10 percent of their task while humans perform the other 90 percent —; no matter how repetitive or mundane they may be。 Industrial robots, with their menacing Swiss knife-like arms, are also inflexible, require trained personnel supervision, and can be dangerous。

If you own a small plant that makes baskets or low volume electronics, it’;s not feasible to buy a half a million dollar robot —; but that’;s not to say that you don’;t need automated help。 That’;s where Baxter came in and Sawyer is ready to fill in the blank spots。

“;For the research and education market, Baxter has been an invaluable tool for hundreds of universities and research labs around the world。 With Sawyer, we offer the research community a similar ROS based interface so they can take advantage of some of Sawyer’s high-performance specifications。  These include a 4kg payload, 1260 mm reach, high resolution embedded vision and sub-millimeter precision, while weighing only 19kg。  Sawyer’s arm is also aluminum, which offers a higher degree of ingress protection than Baxter, allowing researchers to use the robot in more industrial environments,”; Brian Benoit, Senior Product Manager at Rethink Robotics, told ZME Science

These extremely light robots can be programmed to perform a task in a matter of minutes。 Operators don’;t need to write a line of code。 Instead, they just program the robot like they would a new hire: instruct by doing。 For instance, to teach Sawyer how to place a microcontroller on a PCB board, the human operators needs only to take the robots ‘;wrist’; and guide it。 If needed, Sawyer can be re-deployed to another task, like sorting components。 It also has a nifty tablet-like display where eyes and brows mimic human emotions, making Sawyer far less awkward in the workplace, Rethink Robotics says。
