Rethink Robotics announces Intera 5 robotic control software
February 14, 2017 – Rethink Robotics announced Intera 5, a software platform that connects everything from a single robot controller, extending Rethink Robotics’ Sawyer to the entire work cell and simplifying automation.
Built on the backbone of train-by-demonstration software that powers robots, Intera 5 is designed for connected manufacturing environments and helping companies build factories of the future. Rethink Robotics’ Intera 5 modernizes the traditional work cell by improving coordination, increasing flexibility and reducing deployment times. Run through the robot’s controller, manufacturers can orchestrate conveyors, equipment and other machines from a central Intera 5-powered robot.
With Intera 5, manufacturers will find features that include:
- Embedded vision, which will allow the robot to perform tasks just as humans do, reducing the need for part presentation fixturing.
- Adaptive force-sensing, allowing users to set the amount of force required, or enable the robot to feel and respond to a specific force, so the robot can make adaptive decisions while performing a task.
- Intera Studio, a tool to deploy automation, providing a gateway to the factory of the future.
Beginning in March, Intera 5 will be available for download on all existing Sawyer robots, and will come standard on all new robots.
