Designing for Human-Robot Collaboration

FreeMove™ is a single-robot vision system that enables people to work safely in collaboration with standard industrial robots.  It is engineered for compliance with the ISO 13849 functional safety standard.

The FreeMove™ Application Development Kit (ADK) is available now.  It is intended to allow manufacturing engineers to develop production applications that can be deployed on the production version of Veo FreeMove™.

The FreeMove™ ADK incorporates the full functionality of Veo FreeMove™, but without our fail-safe hardware and fault monitoring systems, so it must be used in controlled settings with redundant safety provisions. Read more about FreeMove™ ADK.

 
 
 

With FreeMove™ ADK you can:

  • Quickly develop process steps that include production labor and standard industrial robots within a cycle or for fault recovery

  • Save capital costs and engineering time

  • Quickly deploy the full FreeMove™ production system when it becomes available in 2020

FreeMove™ Studio

Software suite for self-service configuration and real-time and visualization of sensor and FreeMove™ Cortex data.

 

Key features

 

Flexible Safeguarding 

Integrates directly with your robot controller to simulate safeguarding of single robot workcells


 

Dynamic Calculation

Dynamically computes Protective Separation Distance to a human or unidentified object based on the current position of the robot

 

 

Collaborative Workflows

Incorporates CAD models of workpieces, tooling, and workcell fixtures to enable human-robot collaboration in workcells
