Making robots more like humans
R&D - 07/19/2017
Technology has come a long way since robots were first introduced into the automotive industry more than 50 years ago.
“However, although robots can weld, paint and assemble car parts, they are still far from becoming equivalent to human workers,” said Taskin Padir, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Northeastern University.
“The robots we have that are currently state-of-the-art do not come anywhere close to human capabilities, in terms of accuracy and control said Padir. “We still need to make significant improvements on that front.”
