Efficient systems. Finance and accounting groups often need to access and consolidate information from a range of different applications and systems. This tedious work, often involving intermediate spreadsheets, can present high workloads at month end, the end of a quarter and year end. Robots perform this work fast and seamlessly, as if there was really just one integrated system. Robots can be configured and trained to do this work in a matter of weeks, when it would take years for an IT group to integrate the disparate systems to the same degree.
Other robots use machine vision systems to perform complex tasks, such as weld inspection and optimization in the automotive industry. These usually involve elaborate actions and motion sequences, which the robot may even have to identify itself.
The main reason for offshore manufacturing is to reduce production costs for a manufacturer who is trying to make more profits by exploiting the comparative advantages that exist in other countries and which are not in his/her country.
Cleaning robot is an autonomous robot that cleans floor, windows, lawns, and others. It is employed in mopping, UV sterilization, and other purposes in household as well as industrial applications. Cleaning robot minimizes human efforts and saves time, economical and electricity. People with disability can use cleaning robot as an alternative for expensive housekeeping services. Technological advancement has made robots more intelligent and they are able to detect different amount of dirt at different spots.
Machine vision systems store inspection results in a database along with serial numbers, which makes components easy to trace. They work on multiple seams of different types, shapes and sizes, and operate at high speed. The automotive industry uses automated weld inspection and optimization systems extensively to ensure vehicles are of high quality and safe to drive.
