Eureka Robotics design new software to give robots a ‘human touch’

Eureka Robotics, a tech spin-off from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore has reportedly developed a novel software, named Dynamis, which makes robots of the industrial sector agile and sensitive like humans.

The technology basically makes robots appear as live as the human hands which can manipulate tiny glass lenses or engine gears which are very small in size without destroying them.

Apparently, this force feedback invention made by scientists of NTU was formerly exhibited by the ‘Ikea Bot’ which assembled an Ikea chair within 20 minutes and went viral on the internet for the robot’s ability which matched that of humans in assembling the chair.

Professor Pham Quang Cuong, Co-founder of Eureka Robotics stated that the software technology of the robot has been upgraded and will be shared among the other industrial robots across the world by Denso Wave, market leader of industrial robots.

As per credible reports, the DENSO WAVE robots fitted with Dynamis have depicted that in comparison to the other industrial robots, they can carry out human activities like assembling gear accurately eight times faster while demonstrating the increased potential for improvements in productivity. These robots can also provide freedom to human workers from repetitive tasks and ensure good control and limit human errors.

Reportedly, clients making purchase of these latest technology robots will be provided with an option to manage the force controller on robots to regulate the pressure.

Prof. Pharm mentioned that the art of mastering dexterity and touch sensitivity similar to human hands has always been an unattainable goal for the robots due to complicate programming of force controller. However, with the latest software, the task seems quite possible

According to sources, incubating Eureka Robotics and assisting them to pace-up their commercialization is NTU’s innovation and commercialization company NTUitive, as a part of the NTU 2025 Innovation pillar plan which aims to tackle world’s most challenging concerns.
