Application of Nextage: Next-Generation Industrial Robot
This chapter states the application of a dual-arm industrial manipulator named Nextage constructed by Kawada Robotics Corp. We first briefly state the background where Nextage was developed. After stating the overview of the hardware/software system of Nextage, we show some examples where Nextage was applied. In some cases, Nextage was introduced in real factories. In other cases, Nextage was used for research purposes.
