Israeli robotics firm Deep Learning Robotics (DLR) has developed robot control software that allows users to teach robots new jobs by demonstrating the task.

DLR’s machine learning algorithms allow robots to learn by observing and mimicking human actions, removing the need for complex instructions. The user interface and adaptability to a range of robots and applications, including industrial manufacturing, makes it possible for any staff member on an assembly line or warehouse to teach a robot new tasks.

The company’s software is designed to allow greater adoption of robotics on low volume and versatile production lines, as well as high volume throughput assembly plants.

DLR’s software controller allows robots to mimic human behaviour automatically even in tasks that require some on-the-fly adaptation due to changes in 3-D locations and sizes of objects.

The controller employs Plug & Play technology to allow greater flexibility and speed of implementation around an industrial site.

“We are excited to introduce this cutting-edge technology to the world,” said Aviv Vana, Marketing Director of DLR. “Our goal is to make it easy for anyone to unlock the full potential of robots, regardless of technical expertise. This revolutionary software will greatly expand the use and application of robots in various industries.”
