Alphabet’s industrial robot company intrinsic is all set to “unlock the creative and economic potential” of the $42 billion industrial robotics market. The company is working out on software tools that make more affordable and user-friendly industrial robots.
industrial robots gained popularity in the past year due to their widespread application in the war against covid 19. Wendy Tan-White, a VP of Moonshots at Alphabet, who now has the title of Intrinsic CEO penned in a blog that “Over the last few years, our team has been exploring how to give industrial robots the ability to sense, learn, and automatically make adjustments as they’re completing tasks, so they work in a wider range of settings and applications. Working in collaboration with teams across Alphabet, and with our partners in real-world manufacturing settings, we’ve been testing software that uses techniques like automated perception, deep learning, reinforcement learning, motion planning, simulation, and force control.”
The company is currently looking for partners in the health care, electronics, and automotive industries that are “already using industrial robotics and want to learn together. “Tan-White revealed that they are developing software tools that help to make industrial robots easier to use, less costly, and more flexible so that more people can use them to make new products, businesses, and services
