The company’s focus is on pragmatic solutions that work with people, and this can be defined within three core pillars: augmented solutions, stand-alone solutions, and complete robotics automation solutions. Panasonic will introduce six robot models, aligned with its new Robotics strategy, during a YouTube event free for anyone to join on:
of December, 3pm CET
Customers expect turnkey solutions from one supplier. During the YouTube event, the company will present examples from leading B2B customers in Europe, e.g. an automation solution developed for an automotive supplier’s factory in Germany.
Utilizing the Advantage in Industrial Robots & Sensory
Panasonic is a tier-one producer of industry robots due to its inhouse development of sensors and drives. The company predicts that the general market trends in the components sector such as the focus on miniaturization, the combination of multiple intelligent sensors in one device, and the reduction of mass, will enable new applications to be explored.
Johannes Spatz, President of Panasonic Industry in Europe comments, “We believe the knowledge and technology in these areas, along with our know-how in industrial robots, prepare a reliable and tested pathway for successful applications of robotics in other areas.”
One of the examples highlights the transfer of industrial applications to the healthcare industry through the use of lidar sensors within delivery robots that had originally been developed for automated guided vehicles in production sites.
Academic Partnerships & Open Source Solutions
Central to the new strategy, Panasonic has established joint offices and is collaborating with eight universities – two in Europe and six in Japan. Among the partnerships in Europe are those with the Technical University in Munich, Germany, and the ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. Takeshi Ando, head of the Global Robotics R&D activities at Panasonic summarizes: “Panasonic has evolved from pushing proprietary systems to an open technology platform. The new platform combines elemental technologies such as sensing, system integration, planning and computing, locomotion, object handling, communication and power source and battery.”
