Chinese tech giant Lenovo has unveiled its first self-developed industrial robot dubbed Morningstar industrial robot. The product was unveiled today at its 2020 innovation and technology conference. The Morningstar industrial robot deploys edge computing power and intelligence and enables workers to accurately carry out remote painting works using the robot.
Lenovo Group’s senior vice president and CTO Rui Yong explained that the robot will scan and perceive the entire workshop space, and the data will be built and rendered in real-time on the virtual machine on the edge side. The data will then be navigated and positioned through containerized slam technology and moved to the designated spray booth. The robot also comes with a binocular stereo camera which collects the workpieces and sends the surrounding conditions of the operating platform to the edge server in real-time. The edge server then pushes the 3D video stream to the AR glasses in real-time.
The robot is controlled by AR glasses and handle to spray paint synchronously, which is equivalent to visiting the scene. In this way, after a natural teaching operation, the painting ability of the parts is saved on the edge side. The robot will subsequently be capable of self-spraying parts of the same specification. Furthermore, the robot can automatically detect the spraying quality based on computer vision.
The tech giant did not reveal further details bothering on if this would be commercialized and when.
