Flexiv unveils new operating system for its adaptive robots

Flexiv, a developer of robotic and artificial intelligence solutions, has unveiled Flexiv Elements, its all-new operating system for “adaptive robots”.

Adaptive robots are a new category – very similar to collaborative robots – which Flexiv is concentrating on. It describes its “Rizon” model (main picture) as “the first adapative robot” – referring to its ability to maintain performance even amid significant changes in the environment, such as floating base, vibration, and human interference.

Created to provide integrators with “ground-breaking new features” which simplify complex robotic operations, Flexiv says Elements makes it “easier than ever” before to develop customized programs that enhance efficiency and productivity.

With an intuitive graphical user interface, users can effortlessly program their adaptive robot with drag and drop function modules to create their ideal workflow.

Capable of generating applications that incorporate fine force control and artificial intelligence, and with a range of existing customizable prebuilt plans, Elements allows users to work faster and accomplish more.

Operating seamlessly with an adaptive robot, Elements also enables real-time monitoring and the control of a robot’s pose, motion, force, and position. With the information presented clearly and concisely, even those new to the field of robotic programming will always be in complete control.

Shuyun Chung, co-founder and chief robotics scientist of Flexiv, says: “The Flexiv Elements operating system is an integral part of our robotic ecosystem and will be an indispensable tool for integrators.

“Since 2019 we have been working on improving and optimizing the Elements system, and we are proud to release it to the world today.

“We will continue to develop our software solutions so that users will be able to maximize the potential of their robots. We’re excited about the future applications of the Elements system, and we look forward to seeing users bring their ideas to life.”
