ABB to build $150m robot factory in China with a digital twin

China is a key market for robotics. In 2017, one of every three robots sold in the world went to China, which purchased nearly 138,000 units. The deal with the Shanghai municipal government also includes a comprehensive strategic cooperation agreement to support industry, energy, transport and infrastructure in the region.

ABB employs approximately 5,000 people in Shanghai, and the company’s robotics businesses in China employ more than 2,000 engineers, technology experts and operational leaders in 20 locations across the country. ABB has invested more than US$2.4 billion in China since 1992, with over 18,000 employees in total.

Embedded brain reading enables better human-robot interaction

Buttons and levers are not the right way to control robots in real time. Even voice control may be too clumsy to cause the robot to perform the desired action. The aim of a current research project is to control robots directly through the thoughts of the operator. Thus, the robots should learn to understand and interpret humans.

Robotics, A.I. and Blockchain redesign the pharma supply chain

Blockchain in PharmaExoskeletons will aid pharma factory workers. 3D printing will allow pharmacies to produce drugs on the spot. Blockchain technologies will help fight counterfeit drugs. These are just bits and pieces, but the entire process of the pharmaceutical supply chain will be affected by disruptive technologies. Let me show you a comprehensive overview how innovations will make it more efficient, faster and cheaper than ever before.
