Mobile robots in production

Safety and more – SICK provides protection and navigation data for KUKA’s KMR iiwa

KUKA_KMRiiwa_teaser

Industrial production in the future will see us working with assistants that are modular, versatile and, above all else, mobile. In KMR iiwa, KUKA Roboter GmbH has developed a fully automated, autonomous solution that combines the LBR iiwa lightweight robot and the OmniMove mobile platform. KUKA’s long-standing partnership with SICK has played an integral role in the process, thanks to safety laser scanners that provide both a protective function and navigational support in the KMR iiwa. This enables the worker to interact directly with the robot, which moves autonomously. No physical guards are required, making this system genuinely true to the spirit of creating sustainable flexibility in production.

Chasing the bad guy through Vienna’s sewer system in the famous 1949 movie “The Third Man” may have been a good plot then; today’s municipalities face a more subtle threat: the deterioration of aging sewage systems. The Canadian enterprise AquaCoustic Inc. uses SICK’s LMS111 outdoor 2D laser scanners to check sewers for damage and to map infrastructures built long before the digital age.
