Universal Robots Announces ActiNav Autonomous Bin Picking Solution

Introducing ActiNav Autonomous Bin Picking by Universal Robots
ActiNav combines UR’s market leading collaborative robots, a 3D sensor and autonomous robot motion control to solve unstructured bin picking and accurate placement for machine tending.
The ActiNav Autonomous Motion Module (AMM) synchronously handles vision processing, collision-free motion planning, and autonomous real-time robot control.
ActiNav Autonomous Motion enables:
  • Higher machine uptime with collision-free motion: Autonomous collision-free motion within its environment means fewer operator interventions and system restarts. The system takes care of the motion autonomously.
  • Less refilling with deep bins: Autonomous motion enables ActiNav to operate inside deep bins which hold more parts. That means systems can run unattended longer and require less filling. When the bin gets low on parts, it notifies workers by an alert light that it’s ready for more parts.
  • Accurate part placement: Machine tending requires parts to be accurately placed and oriented in the same way each time. The high-resolution sensor and CAD matching enable high accuracy picks. And the Autonomous Motion Module selects a robot pose that ensures the part is placed in the same way into a fixture each time. This is not pick and drop, this is accurate pick and part oriented placement.
