Robots used in general factories are usually not too complicated. Manufacturers usually only set one program to control their actions, so these robots usually repeat specific actions over and over again. However, Sony recently introduced a high-speed vision sensor designed specifically for industrial robots that allows industrial robots to detect and track objects at 1000 frames per second.

Agile production enables companies to adapt to rapidly changing market demands and remain competitive, but achieving on-time delivery of materials and components in production plants remains a challenge that cannot be underestimated. Manual transportation means that workers need to leave their jobs, push carts filled with materials, and travel to and from the production halls and warehouses, which can lead to extrusion time and the need for workers to wait for components and parts to be delivered.

Labor idleness. Achieving this automated delivery has always been a challenge. The production layout of the factory is usually dynamic, and new production units and processes will continue to appear, and obstacles such as personnel, equipment, and pallets will appear on the open passages from time to time. Any automated material handling method needs to be extremely flexible and adaptable without incurring additional costs or disruption of the production process, not to mention ensuring the safety of the employees. This flexibility also means that automated material handling mechanisms must be easy to learn, program, deploy, and redeploy internally to ensure that selected methods are economically viable and adapt to the latest requirements.
