    AI-Powered Robot Could Improve Productivity, Reduce Defects in Optics Manufacturing

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A robotics technology startup from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), has introduced a new robot that can pick up delicate optical lenses and mirrors with care and precision, just like a human hand. Named Archimedes, the robot can slot lenses and mirrors of different sizes into a custom loading tray to get them ready for coating.

    NTU spinoff company Eureka Robotics developed Archimedes, which has the precision and dexterity of a human hand. Courtesy of NTU Singapore.
    Archimedes has a six-axis robot arm controlled by algorithms that use artificial intelligence (AI) to plan its motion and how much force to exert in its grip. The system can mimic the dexterity of human fingers and the visual acuity of human…
