Spotlight: The Robot Workcell Checkup

Your toe bone is connected to your foot bone, then your heel bone, then your ankle bone … so when something hurts, doctors at your checkup can go down the line to see where the problem is. In NIST’s Engineering Laboratory, we’re doing the same thing for robot workcells.

Our team is developing fast, efficient ways to evaluate smart manufacturing systems so that manufacturers across the country can check up on the health of their robot workcells and locate problems when (and even before) they happen. That way, it saves time and money to keep business running smoothly.

Follow us on social media for more like this from all across NIST!
