Some people confuse AR with virtual reality. Virtual reality (VR) is a complete immersive experience that shuts out the real world. Augmented reality superimposes a computer generated (CGI) video onto a camera captured video.
Despite the fact that many commercial enterprises are already leveraging new technologies like virtual-and augmented reality (AR)-to unlock productivity and growth, this technology has yet to reach widespread adoption across the manufacturing sector.
Malek Murison for Internet of Business: Telepresence robotics and virtual reality are two exciting technologies, and by combining the two in a relatively inexpensive way, engineers at MITs Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed a smarter and safer manufacturing tool.
Humans and robots can now share tasks - and this new partnership is on the verge of revolutionizing the production line. Today's drivers like data-driven services, decreasing product lifetimes and the need for product differentiation are putting flexibility paramount, and no technology is better suited to meet these needs than the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot. With force feedback, collision detection technology and an intuitive, hand-guided teaching mechanism, the TM Series cobot is designed to work in immediate proximity to a human worker and is easier than ever to train on new tasks.
