Three companies, Denso Wave and the Japanese corporation of Beckhoff Automation and Exawizards, which offered artificial intelligence (AI) services, had a press briefing on November 29th, 2017. It was held at the event “INTERNATIONAL ROBOT EXHIBITION 2017” held at Tokyo Big Sight. A dual-arm “multimodal AI robot” equipped with AI technology has been announced. Beckhoff Automation was in charge of the controls, and Exawizards works on the AI technology.
It wears a multi-finger hand to automate the operation of handling irregular workpieces. The VR technique can be used to enable intuitive teaching.
In addition, since the robot operates while predicting ahead by the deep learning function of the AI, it is not necessary to create a complicated program. Mr. Hiroyasu Nakagawa, president of Denso Wave, said, “It is a good partner. We are able to challenge robotic control with deep learning functions.”
At the booth, there was a demonstration of a robot folding towels. VR technology demonstration has also been shown and attracted attention.
