BLACK-I ROBOTICS IS THE FIRST ROBOT COMPANY TO FULLY INTEGRATE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO CREATE A SMART, POWERFUL MOBILE SYSTEM SPECIFICALLY FOR THE LOGISTICS INDUSTRY

Our robot’s remarkable capacity for human-like tactile manipulation -- based on intelligence, vision and mobility — enables the system to precisely pick, place and move virtually any product down to the SKU level to build and stack standard or mixed pallets, working 24x7 without a break.

Artificial Intelligence, RCS control, and human-oriented machine vision are just some of the technologies we developed and implemented in-house. We integrated these technologies with highly sophisticated off-the-shelf devices and software while shaping critical joints and other hardware required to lift and balance heavy payloads.

We used our internally developed Artificial Intelligence, for example, to enable the arm to recognize totes, tote lids and april tags, a requirement of one of our customers. We developed RCS middleware to convert ROS signals to Galil format so that Galil can run the arm’s motors. We use five realsenses vision modules to create a 3D occupancy grid scene of the working environment to help us calculate optimum path for arm motion. Another vision module locates the object to be picked, while we use lidar and cameras to create our human safety perimeter.

Key to machine vision has been our partnership with Ascend Robotics, located in nearby Cambridge, and headed by experts in machine learning from MIT.  Ascend’s specialty is  vision-guided arm control and human-centered robot control interfaces, which has enabled us to deliver a turnkey mobile manipulation system that can be integrated into a customer’s MES or WMS. 

What all this mobile technology does among other benefits is replace scarce human workers with robot workers that thrive on repetitive labor. It also makes it possible to reduce or eliminate stationary robots at the end of each production line, saving millions of dollars over time. It speeds time to market.  It also gives warehouse staff a range of new services such as inspection on arrival and real-time management reports. It’s a plant manager’s new best friend!
