With the increasing number of robots being used in various settings, the importance of swiftly and seamlessly moving them to the home position has become crucial.
One of the key benefits of Realtime Robotics’ RapidPlan is its simplicity in enabling robots to move to the home position without the need for complex strategies to avoid collisions or obstructions on the return path. Unlike traditional methods that require intricate interlocking mechanisms, RapidPlan eliminates the need for such interlocks. This makes it remarkably easy to expand the size of the robotic cell and increase the number of robots used within it.
In comparison to camera-based systems where a single camera can transmit multiple poses to a common frame, RapidPlan allows the robots to independently determine which task they should undertake based on a predefined set of variables. This flexibility allows for efficient decision-making and allocation of tasks among the robots. Conventional programming methods often struggle to provide this level of control and coordination among multiple robots.
Realtime Robotics will be demonstrating RapidPlan at Automatica 2023 in Munich, Germany.
