The UR10 is the largest robot in the Universal Robots collaborative series, with a payload of up to 10 kg. It was built to conquer large tasks that still need great amounts of precision and reliability. The UR10 is the perfect collaborative choice for processes such as packaging, palletizing, assembly, and pick and place
Dynamic Awareness of an Industrial Robotic Arm Using Time-of-Flight Laser-Ranging Sensors
The focus of this research is the implementation of a dynamic SSM safety configuration using Time-of-Flight (ToF) laser-ranging sensor arrays placed around the centers of the links of a robot arm. It investigates the viability of on-robot exteroceptive sensors for implementing SSM as a safety measure. Here the implementation of varying dynamic SSM safety configurations based on approaches of measuring human-robot separation distance and relative speeds using the sensor modalities of ToF sensor arrays, a motion-capture system, and a 2D LiDAR is shown.
