SCHUNK and READY Robotics have introduced a partnership to develop an Automation Explorer simulation device utilizing NVIDIA’s Omniverse Platform. The businesses say that the brand new device will take the time period “digital twin” to the following stage.

The Automation Explorer simulation device will enable customers to just about expertise and work together with SCHUNK automation know-how in a extremely immersive and detailed physics-based simulation device. The device brings collectively photo-realistic imaging of producing environments, superior robotic management software program, and world-class automation know-how. The simulations within the device are pushed by physics-based technical product knowledge from automation know-how, like grippers. 

Automation Explorer permits customers to just about fee real-world automation tasks. Simulating these automation tasks with physics-based calculations offers customers correct visualization and optimization earlier than a robotic ever reaches the manufacturing ground. 

“Automation Explorer will deliver confidence to each new and skilled customers of automation that their course of is being optimized to its full potential. Whether or not investigating automation potentialities for the primary time, or re-deploying automation gear for a brand new activity, Automation Explorer brings main alternative for understanding automation course of potential whereas additionally digitalizing and simplifying deployment duties,” Milton Guerry, President of SCHUNK USA, stated.

SCHUNK and READY Robotics are utilizing NVIDIA’s Isaac Sim, which is constructed on NVIDIA’s Omniverse platform, within the undertaking. Isaac SIM is a simulation platform used to develop, take a look at, and deploy AI-based robotics purposes. The platform’s strong physics engine allows detailed, lifelike simulations that carefully emulate real-world situations. 

The businesses are additionally utilizing Prepared Robotics’ Forge OS platform, which is an industrial working system for robots and automation. Altogether,  Automation Explorer combines NVIDIA Isaac Sim, Forge OS, and SCHUNK’s automation applied sciences. 

“By connecting ForgeOS and NVIDIA Isaac Sim, clients will have the ability to management any robotic {hardware} and SCHUNK peripherals in simulation and the true world, in precisely the identical approach,” Kel Guerin, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer, at READY Robotics, stated.
