Techman Robot Partners with NVIDIA on Digital Twin

Techman Robot is collaborating with NVIDIA’s Isaac Sim platform to develop digital twin technology to enhance the efficiency of robot production line inspection. This collaboration targets to reduce robot programming time by 70% and cycle time by 20%, resulting in significant time and cost savings. Specifically, digital twin provides robust support for collaborative robots by virtually modeling their behavior and working environment. By accurately simulating the perception and actions of collaborative robots, they can be tested, optimized, and algorithmically improved within a virtual workspace, bringing about transformative changes across various industries.

Mainly, Techman Robot is redefining the next generation of collaborative robots with its AI-enabled TM AI Cobot. Specifically, its standout feature lies in its built-in intelligent vision and AI capabilities. This enables precise recognition and defect detection. Techman showcased a demonstration video in collaboration with NVIDIA. Techman Robot employed its own robots for assembly and inspection tasks, leveraging automated optical inspection (AOI) technology. Throughout the development process, they utilized Isaac Sim, a robot simulation application built on NVIDIA Omniverse, for testing. They also utilized NVIDIA AI and GPU for cloud-based training and inference on the robots themselves.

Techman Robot’s AOI solution distinguishes itself by directly mounting inspection cameras on robotic arms and incorporating GPUs into robot controllers. This setup allows for multi-angle detection of areas beyond the reach of fixed cameras and utilizes AI for quality inspection. According to Techman Robot’s COO, Scott Huang, “Techman Robot stands out among other robot brands due to its built-in vision system and AI inference engine. NVIDIA RTX GPUs have greatly enhanced their AI capabilities.”

Through their collaboration with NVIDIA, Techman Robot is creating digital twin to optimize design structures, test work tasks and environmental conditions, simulate work performance and processes, and redefine AI collaborative robots; thus, bringing innovative reforms to various industries.
