Robots to the rescue? Learn how robotics leverage human intellect while reducing injuries and deaths in dangerous industries.
In this episode of In the KIoTchen, host Kerry Siggins interviews Jeff Hansen, SVP of Global Sales at Sarcos Robotics. As the company behind advanced Exoskeletons, Sarcos has earned a significant presence in commercial, industrial, and defense sectors. Jeff tells us about the dexterous robots Sarcos develops to perform duties outdoors or in challenging, non-structured environments. He details the Exoskeleton, a battery-powered wearable system that can lift to 200 pounds with no human exertion—but simply feels like wearing a backpack. Looking ahead, Kerry and Jeff talk about the transition from human-controlled robots to semi-autonomous robots that require minimal human involvement and can adapt through machine learning. Lastly, Kerry and Jeff dive into the many ways IoT and robotics unite to promote safety and efficiency in the workplace.
