Meet YuMi – the robotic worker of future by ABB

The new era of robotic co-workers is here. YuMi® is the result of years of research and development, making collaboration between humans and robots a reality, but it is also much more. Company ABB has developed a collaborative, dual arm, small parts assembly robot solution that includes flexible hands, parts feeding systems, camera-based part location, and state-of-the-art robot control. YuMi will change the way we think about assembly automation.

To make programming YuMi as simple as telling a human what to do, engineers from ABB have created a programming system so easy anyone can use it. It is more teaching then programming. Simply guide YuMi’s arms and hands, using your own arms and hands, through a series of movements, logging waypoints and gripper actions on a paired tablet running the YuMi app. Watch as the software turns those movements into the underlying code that makes YuMi work—right in front of your eyes and in real-time.

If you want to say ‘Hi’ to YuMi and maybe even teach him something, coming to Future Port Prague 2018 is the thing to do.
