If Peter picked a peck of pickled peppers, he would still move molasses-slow compared to the Adept Quattro robot. Now we can all see how quickly the world's fastest pick-and-place industrial robot can move, based on its performance at National Robotics Week. The Botjunkieguys challenged the robot by waggling a Wiimote to control a moving platform target.
The Adept Quattro certainly lives up to its name by placing chips within holes on the moving platform and removing them just as swiftly. Its four-parallel-arm concept allows for more consistent performance at high speeds, and also enables heavier payloads.
We're just curious how well the Adept would fare against the fastest robot hands in the East, if only a suitable test of skills could be concocted.
could u imagine making pancackes with that or texting so many diferent uses wow i love pop sci its so divers on subjects
awsome article man that thing is soooo fast can it pick up my room? i would save my alowance for years to buy 1
Very believable except in the end where it did the same sequency over and over. They could of programmed it to follow that pattern.
now do it again but on 4axis+... the slider/wiimote is somewhat cool, dont get me wrong, but I'm going to need to see more than that to be super impressed.
Would be more impressive if some way of proving that the robot arm was not also receiving input from the Wii remote...If the hand had to 'sense' or locate the keypad, THEN it would be impressive.
Hooray for high-speed bitshifting!
the machine would not need any input from the "Wiimote" it can easily take the position of the shuttle and acceleration or deceleration and interpolate a position based on that. done over and over the machine always knows where the shuttle will be.
