Universal Robotics Neocortex Shifts Material Handling Flexibility to Software

Check out this video showing Universal Robotics Neocortex – a patented next-generation machine intelligence software platform. It is guiding a robot to pick up a wide range of parts, providing flexible automation.

Traditionally, flexibility consisted of manually reconfiguring mechanical systems and sensors, and manually re-engineering algorithms to accommodate new parts. Neocortex’s machine learning can automatically handle a wide range of changing parts, reducing the need for manual changeovers. In the past, when a new part was introduced, even if the robot could pick up the new part, the robotic work cell would still require changes in fixturing, sensors, machine vision algorithms, and machine control.

In this video, see Neocortex guide the robot to handle various parts. Also shown is a demonstration of the simple training method for those occasional times an operator needs to teach Neocortex something new – a process that takes less than two minutes.
