Black-I Robotics

CONTROLLING THE BEEHIVE

A busy warehouse, distribution center, manufacturing floor is characterized by people, pallets, products, packages, boxes, cans, cartons, canisters, crates, tools, vehicles, all humming like a bee hive. Now imagine an instrument smart enough to see the beehive, react to every movement of the hive, down to a single bee, and agile enough to remove the honey and place it where the queen bee wants it.

Metaphorically, that’s what Black-I Robotics’ revolutionary Fullscope Mobile Heavy Lift Arm can do for the logistics industry.

The lack of available labor up and down the supply chain, combined with huge variations in seasonal demand and customer expectations for faster, cheaper delivery, have crippled the logistics industry. The problem is badly in need of a solution.

We are the solution!

Our breakthrough arm, initially designed for the U. S. government’s leading research and development agency, DARPA, features a proprietary, tightly integrated AI-based suite of smart software, an array of machine vision sensors and an inverse kinematic control system, all of which optimize path planning and object recognition to fundamentally revolutionize every element of a pick and place arm: Strength, Vision, Mobility, Safety, Integration.

Here's a short video of the robotic arm doing modest calenthetics preparing for its debut at Modex, the materials handling show, in Atlanta March 28-30. Come by our booth, C-4788 to see a warmed-up version of the arm in action:
