The sky-defying bionic robot is about to usher in a golden age!
AsiaIndustrial NetNews: Since AlphaGo defeated Lee Sedol, artificial intelligence has become the focus of heated discussions around the world, and it seems that artificial intelligence has become omnipotent.Not long ago, Musk said at the Dubai World Government Summit that “people should be combined with machines to become semi-humans”.robot“The shocking remarks.
After the 21st century, human beings have begun to enter an aging society. The development of “humanoid Robots” can make up for the shortage of labor force, and can also provide support for elderly care services and family services. So far, the “bionic robot” has gone through three stages and is moving towards the fourth stage.
Recently, the sky-defying robot MORDY has become one of the hot spots in the field of robotics research. The MORDY bionic robot comes from INNFOS, a company founded by three people of different ages, professions and work experiences.thanks to the servomotorWith the continuous innovation of systems and other technologies, INNFOS’ research work on bionic robots has achieved effective results.
When bionic robots meet artificial intelligence
Bionic robotics is a hot field in robotics research. People try to get inspiration from animals and apply them to robots, so that they can be used outdoors, such as service robots, search and rescue robots, etc. They can deal with some complex terrain scenarios.
In just a few decades from the birth of bionic robots to their development, the accumulated research results have been very rich, opening up unique technologies and research methods in the field of robotics.Currently, Japan, the United States, South Korea, and Europe are the globalindustryThe traditional leader in the robot market, but the global market competition pattern has been changing in recent years. The rising Chinese robot companies have entered the robot market and are gradually forming a new competition pattern in the robot field.
The robot runs according to a piece of code pre-written by scientists. The motor is controlled by the code. How the code is written, the robot moves. This is considered to be one of the biggest differences between robots and humans. However, with the continuous development of artificial intelligence technology, backed by big data and deep learning, it is not uncommon to see robots that are more similar to humans. For example, MORDY from INNFOS is an example.
After five generations of technology accumulation, from steering gear connection to pure motor drive, INNFOS singlemechanicalThe arm has reached 17 degrees of freedom. With the motor control algorithm with deep neural network, MORDY’s hand movements will realize intelligent action learning, and then realize intelligent force feedback and action judgment. In addition, it can also cooperate with VR technology to observe the robot dynamics, and communicate and interact with it, so as to realize the “high IQ” robot.
It can be seen that the team has taken another big step in this direction.
For bionic robots to achieve breakthroughs, what kind of leaps should be achieved?
The breakthrough of the bionic robot lies mainly in the “heart” of its motion: the servo motor system. During the operation of the robot, the movement of multiple degrees of freedom is realized by the drive of the servo motor. If the motion speed and accuracy of the robot are required to be high, the actual response speed and control accuracy of the servo motor are required to be high enough.
During the actual operation of the robot, the servo motor is often in various acceleration and deceleration, forward and reverse rotation states, which puts forward a very high limit on the short-term overload capacity, inertia adaptation range, frequency response bandwidth, and speed/torque response time of the servo motor. Require.
Different from industrial Robotic arms, bionic robots need to integrate various complex circuits and drive components in a space similar to the size of the human body, or even smaller, and now the mainstream market in the world is still industrial motors and supporting systems. In the case of a large-scale market, large motor manufacturers will not specially design supporting solutions for bionic robots. In order to solve this problem, INNFOS took the lead in developing a robot drive system with China’s independent intellectual property rights, which prompted China to get rid of the constraints of bionic robot technology as soon as possible.
In addition, in terms of bionic robots, we need to improve the ability of independent innovation, use technology to improve efficiency and reduce costs, carry out further industry standards, and rely on the development trend of artificial intelligence to gradually improve the brand’s recognition.
Bionic robots are still in their infancy, but the future is promising
Due to the intersection of disciplines, there are still many problems in “bionic” robots. It may be too early for robots to realize the actions of science fiction movies. For example, the University of California, Berkeley, recently used deep learning to enable humanoid robots to do simple docking work, but is still limited by the complexity of objects, environments, and tasks.
In foreign countries, many bionic robot companies have implemented autonomous core algorithms and have their own core components. But for domestic enterprises, firstly, a large amount of capital and talents have become a big limitation, and secondly, China’s capabilities in industrial design and brand building still need to be strengthened.
Nonetheless, artificial intelligence has evolved and is no longer limited to the underlying algorithms. Such as the intelligent motion control of the motor to replace the currently popular classical control theory and modern control theory, as well as the kinematics and dynamics of the robot. INNFOS has made breakthrough research in motion control and new servo system technology, and tried to apply deep learning neural network algorithm to motor control, so that the dynamic drive of the robot has learning ability.
These all mean the advent of a new era.
