AI & Robotics Company Dorabot Debuts at Modex 2018

Date: 04-09-2018

Artificial intelligence and robotics company Dorabot will make its public debut at Modex 2018, the largest supply chain trade show in the Americas held at the Atlanta World Congress Center from April 9 to 12.

 

At the show, Dorabot will present their proof-of-concept luggage handling solution and Dorabot Hand robot attachment. Dorabot's luggage handling solution could allow airports to automate their luggage handling operations using robot arms and AGVs (autonomous guided vehicles).

 

The solution's robot arm, also known as a manipulator, uses Dorobot-developed computer vision, motion planning, and communication modules to pick up and move pieces of luggage. With a variety of sensors, such as 3D cameras, the manipulator determines the position and orientation of AGVs and bags in real time, allowing the robot grasp and reposition luggage autonomously. Using SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) technology, the AGVs navigate, avoid obstacles, and collaborate with one another, making them useful in a wide range of applications and relatively simple to deploy.

 

Working in tandem, manipulators and AGVs increase luggage handling efficiency, reduce the probability of baggage damage, and decrease the risk of occupational hazards. With the integration of customer information,  fleets of AGVs could even deliver luggage directly to travelers, improving customer experience by eliminating the need to wait at a baggage carousel.

 

The company will also be demonstrating the Dorabot Hand, a modular robot hand with tactile sensors which represented the company several times in international robotics competitions. The Dorabot Hand is capable of grasping a variety of objects, including large round objects like basketballs, and perform cooking-related tasks such as sprinkling salt, beating eggs, and making dumplings.

 

Using these technologies, Dorabot will provide comprehensive AI-powered hardware and software solutions for a variety of industries with a focus on logistics applications.
