Lenovo Introduces Morningstar, The First In-House Industrial Robot
Lenovo unveiled its first in-house developed industrial robot called Morningstar during the Lenovo 2020 innovation and Technology Conference on Wednesday.
The Morningstar industrial robot, using the latest computing power and artificial intelligence, allows for highly accurate paint jobs using the remote control.
According to Rui Yong, senior vice president, and technical director of Lenovo Group, the robot is able to scan and perceive the entire space of the workshop. Its stereo camera feeds environmental data to the Edge server in real-time. This information is processed using a Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm and the server sends streaming 3D video in real-time to the AR headset.
The robot controlled by the AR headset carries out the operation of painting the part using a spray gun. The sequence of work is saved on the peripheral server and in the future, the robot will be able to independently paint this type of part. In addition, he will be able to automatically control the quality of spraying using computer vision.
Unfortunately, Lenovo has not announced a timeline for the commercialization of this development.
