Rethink Robotics Introduces Intera 3, Upgrade to Advanced Software Platform
Jun 19 14
Rethink Robotics announced Intera 3, a major upgrade to its advanced software platform. With Intera 3, the company doubles the performance and expands the abilities of Baxter, one of the first human-safe robots. The company's latest software makes Baxter work twice as fast, with twice the precision previously possible. Intera 3 demonstrates the power of software to deliver continuous innovation more quickly and frequently, adding ever-increasing value to company's inexpensive robot. It represents a approach to automation in manufacturing--moving robotics from fixed to flexible--with software-driven robots that adapt and evolve. As the software advances, Baxter's capabilities will continue to expand, even as the physical robot remains the same--debunking the age-old idea that hardware improvements are required to enhance performance and ability. With Intera 3, Baxter's skill set immediately expands to a broader range of applications, including: Tending to machines such as CNC lathes, ultrasonic welders and press brakes; Packing and unpacking of parts and components; Line loading and unloading; Kitting. The software will be available for all existing Baxters, and all new production beginning in mid-July.
