Design & Deploy Collaborative Robots (Cobots) Using MATLAB

50 50 people viewed this event.


Constraining robots to cages limit their capabilities. And current markets demand reduced lead times and mass customization. These demands have stimulated interest in flexible and multi-purpose manufacturing systems through human and robot collaborations that do not endanger workers. A collaborative robot (Cobot) is a robot that allows humans to work alongside the robot through direct interaction without conventional safeguarding fences. The development of Cobot applications relies heavily on autonomy in perception, planning, and control.

In this webinar, you will learn how to incorporate autonomous algorithms and AI tools into your Cobot applications. We will walk through the development of the real-world applications, such as glue dispensing robots on automotive windshield glass and smart bin picking Cobots using MATLAB and Simulink.


You will gain insights on:

  • Detecting and classifying objects for Cobot smart bin picking applications
  • Teaching Cobot motions using inverse kinematics and motion planning
  • Controlling robot motion for safe interaction
  • Deploying and connecting Cobots using ROS

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can’t make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
