Use Case

A “future with robots” realized with ROBO CROSS

The two roles of ROBO CROSS ((1) Improve integration efficiency of robot systems, and (2) Create new value through data utilization) will be explained with use cases.

USECASE

  • Improvement of robot system integration efficiency
  • Creation of new value through data utilization (Examples: Manufacturing sites, restaurants, healthcare fields, and logistics fields)

Improvement of robot system integration efficiency

Data retrieval(For example, the case of gripper selection)

Conventional system setup

Trial and error on actual machines to select or design various hands to suit the work to be handled

ROBO CROSS

Search based on proven results from a large database

Design of the entire system

Conventional system setup

A long time is spent in adjustments on the actual machine for the coordinated operations between the robot and peripheral equipment

ROBO CROSS

Design work is made more efficiently by searching for similar systems from the proven past results. Verifying the overall system behavior in virtual space.

In this way, ROBO CROSS enables the utilization of data and the virtual space to greatly contribute to more efficient robot system integration and can greatly reduce the time and effort required for system setups.

Creation of new value through data utilization

Manufacturing site use cases

  • Collection of production line information by robots
  • Remote support of investigation and recovery when an error occurs
  • Integrated management of multiple sites
  • Proposing continuous improvements to the production line

Restaurant use cases

  • Collection of order information by robot
  • Prediction of next orders and preparing food
  • Reduced food loss by thoroughly managing the foodstuffs

Healthcare field use cases

  • Collection of the health status of each person by robot
  • Supports for remote examination
  • Coordination of nursing services and delivery of meals tailored to the health status
  • Planning the best course for staying healthy and walking with you

Logistics field use cases

  • Collection of the status of individual packages by robot
  • Effective use of space through cooperation with the warehouse management system
  • Detailed tracking of packages in cooperation with logistics management system

In this way, utilizing the data collected in ROBO CROSS makes it possible to provide useful services for the end user, including with overall optimization and detailed responses according to individual situations.
