Industrial robots are on the brink of revolutionizing the manufacturing industry. Advances in technology, including robotics, big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) have improved plant floor production. Now more than ever we are noticing the benefits of having industrials robots working hand-in-hand with humans, simple tasks such picking and packaging, and testing or inspecting products, to name a few. Hear from ABB Robotics as they share how their industrial robots are crafted to store and analyze their own usage data, which is then communicated to other devices. This paves the way for robots to constantly improve and grow over time, becoming an efficient force within manufacturing. Topics to be included:
• Industrial robots and their impact on the factory floor
• How data and analytics from robots creates real efficiencies
