Fujitsu Accelerates Human-Robot Collaboration

The company is working to help provide autonomous manufacturing systems.

Fujitsu, an information and communication technology (ICT) company, has started a new initiative to implement a next-generation manufacturing environment that includes  high level robot and machine interaction. With this system, all forms of manufacturing data are connected.

The company has already been developing robotic systems with autonomous control to adapt and respond to variations in components and generate control programs. This technology, according to the company, can also monitor manufacturing facilities using the Internet of Things (IoT) technology and predict predict product quality on a variety of factors.

The goals of this new initiative are to provide ICT, automation and networking in manufacturing. Some of the components of it include:

  • Offering manufacturing solutions that incorporate Fijitsu’s internal know-how;
  • Allying closely with robot manufacturers to support factory deployments;
  • Establishing a new office to support the creation of a next-generation manufacturing environment.
Some of the intended solutions include robots that minimize production-plan switchover and task switchovers, predicting manufacturing quality and data sharing without limitations.
