...The robot is no longer something that has to be supplied by a third party. Says Campbell: "My observation at this interpack was that there were about the same number of purpose-built robotic arms on display as there were integrated robotic arms. By next interpack, I would expect the integrated model to be the predominant one. While on the topic of robotics, I was surprised that I didn't find any collaborative robotics on the floor, with the exception of a university project on display in the VDMA booth. Collaborative robots are designed to work alongside people and may be deployed without guards or protective barriers around them."
...Apple prides itself in promoting CarPlay as a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car. "You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music, all in a way that allows you to stay focused on the road" . CarPlay will be controlled via Siri, but it works with buttons or a dashboard touchscreen if the car has one...
Squires, who is an equally big fan of the EDA software, sums it all up this way. "I've always told Fanuc, 'Look, your robot controller can do a few of the things a PLC is good at.' And I've always told Rockwell, 'Yeah, your PLC can do a little robotics.' But the fact is, each controller plays a different role and makes a different contribution. They complement each other, and I think that with this new interface tool, they're more complementary than ever before."
