Robust AI, a manufacturer of robots, has developed a new collaborative mobile robot (CMR) that is capable of reading the body language of the humans it works alongside in the manufacturing space.

The Robust AI CMR dubbed Carter can be configured to perform different material handling tasks in support of human factory workers via a no-code graphical interface.

Carter features a motorized base, a modified touchscreen and software that identifies and infers what human workers are doing based on their body language.

Robust AI’s goal for Carter is to make humans’ labor less repetitive in the manufacturing space, thereby freeing humans up to take on higher value tasks.
