Updated November 12, 2018 17:06:33The next big technology is to be used to replace the human hand, but there are other applications to consider.
A new company, Singularity Robotics, has made headlines in recent months for its use of robotics to build a robot arm for an industrial robot that can lift heavy objects.
The company is based in New York and is led by Chris Young.
The company says the arm will have a range of functions, including removing obstacles from a path, making adjustments to the robot’s position in space and controlling the robot with touch and gestures.
The arm is part of a much bigger effort, dubbed Singularity Arm, to make robotics applications for the workplace, said Singularity’s chief technology officer, Rob Lehrman.
Mr Lehrmann said Singular had used robotics to design an arm that could lift a heavy object from a position in which it was difficult to control.
“The arm will be capable of moving, lifting, twisting and rotating objects up to 30 per cent of its mass,” he said.
“It’s capable of lifting large objects up from the ground up to a height of 30 metres.
It’s also capable of working with a robotic arm that is more sophisticated than our own, with features that allow the arm to move and operate autonomously.”
We are also developing a platform that can interact with a complex object from different angles.
“With this arm, the operator can control the robot to perform a range or tasks, or even perform manual tasks like lifting or turning a heavy piece of machinery.”
Mr Leahman said SingulaArm was building a robot that could be used in the fields of medicine, food and energy.
The Arm would be used as a tool to remove obstacles from objects, but could also be used for various tasks including controlling a robotic vehicle or robotic hand.
The Singularity arm is designed to be as versatile as possible, so that it could be easily adapted to suit different tasks, he said, adding that the arm was also designed to take on different tasks that were beyond the scope of the human body.
“There is no one size fits all for the robot.
The arm can perform tasks in a range that are beyond the reach of the body,” Mr Lehrmans said.
The team is working on the development of a more sophisticated version of the arm, but Mr Leahmans said it was too early to say how much time it would take.
“I think the future is very exciting,” he told news.com;au.
“People are working on developing robotic arm designs that can take on various tasks that are outside of the scope and capabilities of the brain.”
