November 4-5, 2019, ElephantrobotShine at the 4th European Ecological Conference HUAWEI ECO-Co held by Huawei in Paris, France as a partnernNECT EUROPE 2019 (HCE).
Working hand in hand with Huawei WiFi6 and 5G technology, the Elephant Robotics® P series Robots have been put into practice on-site, with their arms linked together, attracting countless attention and becoming a highlight of this conference.
Huawei European Ecological Conference is an annual flagship event held by Huawei in Europe.nnected Futher “As the theme, it aims to build and promote an open, innovative and cooperative ICT ecosystem for the digital age.
The conference set up a special area for Smart Manufacturing, which is composed of collaborative robots representing Elephant Robotics, Festo representing pneumatic components, AGV representing Quicktron, and 3D vision representing Mech-Mind.Representatives of several technology companies have derived from HUAWEI WiFi6 technology to 5G technology, providing more innovation space for production and manufacturing.smart factoryHelp add code.
As a cutting-edge technology, Elephant Robot sits in the C position of the intelligent manufacturing area. Combined with Huawei WiFi6 technology, it shows the media and guests on-site with a vivid and interesting collaborative painting scheme. Compared with WiFi5, HUAWEI WiFi6 has the characteristics of low latency and low loss:
① Low latency 10ms@HUAWEI＜20ms@industry
② Data packet loss
③ 7*24 hours stable operation
Two Elephant Robotics® P3 robots, one main and one auxiliary, with two arms linked together, vividly demonstrate the excellent features of HUAWEI WiFi6 technology compared to traditional WiFi5 technology. In the two communication modes of WiFi5 and HUAWEI WiFi6, the auxiliary robot imitates the main robot to draw images respectively. Compared with the WiFi5 mode, the robot in the HUAWEI WiFi6 mode has a shorter lag, a more agile simulation speed, and a stronger collaborative operation.
The vivid collaborative painting of Elephant Robotics®P3 robot attracts a continuous stream of customers to stop and watch, Huawei producesautomationThe solution CTO also visited the site to demonstrate to Huawei’s ecological partners and the media many times. The safe and flexible collaborative robots interacted efficiently with the exhibitors in this conference, which greatly stimulated the atmosphere of the scene.

■ Flexible production, unstoppable
Based on the application requirements of robot transformation and upgrading on wireless networks, WiFi6 and 5G technologies can better meet the application requirements of robot interconnection and remote interaction in production environments.
The use of 5G network robots will achieve seamless connection, further open up design, procurement, warehousing, logistics and other links, making production more flat, customized and intelligent; and data sharing, agile interconnection, application cloudification, and intelligent decision-making will also be realized. It will further play a more important supporting role in robot application scenarios such as Industrial control, logistics tracking, industrial AR, and flexible manufacturing.
In intelligent manufacturing production scenarios, robots are required to have strong self-organization and collaboration capabilities to meet flexible production, which brings higher demands for robots to be cloud-based. The 5G network has the characteristics of low latency, large capacity and high bandwidth, which can achieve end-to-end communication latency as low as 1ms and support 99.999% connection reliability. The powerful network capabilities of 5G can greatly meet the delay and reliability challenges of cloud-based robots, and then provide manufacturing services covering the supply chain, production workshop and product life cycle.
Elephant Robot is committed to providing comprehensive and scientific automation transformation solutions for factories, and strives to contribute to the automation transformation and upgrading of enterprises with the most economical solutions. The Display plan of the Huawei European Ecological Conference is just a small step for us.
In the future, Elephant Robotics will further strengthen cooperation with Huawei and jointly explore the collaborative relationship between robots under 5G+ technology, thereby effectively helping enterprises to quickly realize economical and practical automation upgrades, improve enterprise production efficiency, improve product quality, and improve safety levels.
Elephant Robot hopes to build an interconnected and collaborative future factory through leading connection + intelligent technology, and open a new chapter in the era of automation industry together with customers and partners.
According to a survey by Accenture Consulting, 85% of manufacturers expect that by 2020, the technological focus of manufacturing will shift to “human-machine collaboration”. Consumers’ demand for product uniqueness and personalization will prompt manufacturers to retrieve the humanized element in product manufacturing and further promote the development of “human-machine collaboration”. Responding flexibly and quickly to market demands requires manufacturing companies to be able to quickly adjust their production lines, and in a limited space, using existing employees, and at low cost. This is where collaborative robots come into play.
With the continuous rise of labor costs in the manufacturing industry, there is an urgent need to reduce costs and increase efficiency. The advantages of collaborative robots are even more prominent. Cost reduction not only starts from the robot hardware, but also includes software, safety protection equipment (such as safety fences), and installation and integration costs. The use of Elephant Robot collaborative robots can bring extremely high economic benefits to enterprises.
First of all, based on the collision detection algorithm based on the accurate dynamic model, the Elephant Robotics series robots will automatically stop in an emergency to ensure the safety of personnel when they are subjected to a slight collision. Users do not need to set up a separate safety fence when using Elephant Robot products. At the same time, Elephant Robot provides users with customized safety protection measures, such as lidar, light grid and other safety equipment, to ensure a safe, stable and reliable working environment, break the gap between humans and robots, and achieve efficient collaboration between humans and robots.
Second, the operating system of Elephant Robotics series robots is “RoboFlow” independently developed by Elephant Robot.“Software, “RoboFlow” has strong stability, high compatibility and smooth operation. It has a clear and concise operation interface, which can quickly drive the functional modules of various smart devices and visual systems, and has different information standard methods, making it easier for users to operate and use. Even a novice can quickly learn and operate the elephant robot flexibly after simple training. Drag teaching and visual programming allow workers to quickly install, program, and debug, effectively saving time and reducing overall costs.
Third, while ensuring reliable quality, Elephant Robotics ensures that the Elephant Robotics series of robots have excellent cost performance through a strong cost control system, so that enterprises can realize value-for-money automated production deployment according to their own conditions and production progress. . The deployment of Elephant Robotics series robots can reduce the production time and re
