TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) showcases its latest achievements in intelligent robot technology at Taiwan Automation Intelligence and Robot Show 2020, which will be held at Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 1 from 19 to 22 August, and will display its AI auto annotation app as well as its advanced robotic grinding and polishing system.
ITRI also developed the world’s first automatic annotation application, which enables robotic random picking, according to Chloe Chen, project manager in ITRI’s marketing communications office.
The app is able to automatically collect and label data and use various AL recognition images to teach robots to access materials. With this technology, 10,000 training images can be tagged every hour, 400 times faster than humans can handle.
In addition, the configuration of a bin pickup robot can now be done in a single day, compared to 30 days previously. The technology can be applied to warehousing and logistics, shoe manufacturing, and plumbing equipment.
ITRI’s advanced robotic grinding and polishing system provides a high-quality surface finish using cyber-physical, visual and force-control technologies and helps factories manufacture a range of products without having to stop the production line, according to ITRI.
When a new part is introduced into the plant’s production lines, reliable machine vision recognition eliminates the need to stop the line, as the system can immediately identify a new part and simulate the grinding path, allowing a wide variety of flexible manufacturing in small quantities. This technology can be applied to the metal processing, plumbing hardware and hand tool industries.
