ABB Offers Augmented Reality on a Smartphone to Simplify Robot Installations

ABB’s new RobotStudio AR viewer provides a quick and convenient way of visualizing where and how robotic automation can fit into your process using a smartphone or tablet.

The launch of ABB’s new Augmented Reality viewer, which has been added to ABB’s powerful PC-based RobotStudio® offline programming software, could help determine which robot is most helpful for a company’s application.

Available free of charge on the Apple Store and Google Play Store and viewable on any compatible smart device, the app reportedly provides a low cost, safe and easy way of visualizing an installation that can be used by individuals or groups.

“RobotStudio is our intuitive digital tool that helps simplify the installation and use of robots,” said Antti Matinlauri, head of product management, ABB Robotics. “Our new AR Viewer tool makes it even easier for customers to access the huge capability of RobotStudio, helping them to see how robots can be introduced into their production and how automation can improve the productivity and flexibility of existing process, before they commit to any investment.”

RobotStudio is available free of charge until December 31st, 2020 with a free training course available to help users unlock the full potential of the software.
