Keep it simple!

The electronics market for the business and entertainment sectors is overrun by smartphones and tablets.

These devices are available in everyday life and, for a growing number of people, are becoming the best human-machine interaction system.

In response to this trend, Comau has developed an Android application to perform “pick and place” operations in a completely new way, based on an “ease of use” philosophy.

In the new version of PickApp 1.1, Cognex smart camera is supported to facilitate the application of Pick&Place with Vision System.

Normally, robot programmers are skilled technicians who use a teach pendant to interact with the robot. Comau wants to reverse this approach by giving our customers a more intuitive, easier and faster way to control a robot using an Android tablet!

  • Intuitive Geographical User Interface
