Doosan Robotics, a collaborative robot (cobot) manufacturer, is showcasing its suite of industrial cobots at this year’s CES, which the company says is ready to “revolutionize” the robotics industry.

CES 2024 is taking place Jan. 9-12 in Las Vegas.

Doosan hosted a media day at this year’s event, speaking on the use of AI to power cobots and enable more seamless human-robot collaboration across industries.

Doosan is also using the event to unveil Dart-Suite, a robot ecosystem “redefining the robot experience.” The platform uses AI to enhance cobot capabilities and improve the technology’s accessibility.

According to Doosan, the platform helps evolve robots “from static tools to flexible partners”, reducing robot development time by up to 80%. 

“Working with Dart-Suite is comparable to the ease and usability of smartphones, shaping the user experience for a new era of robotics,” the company said in a statement.

“As we unveil our groundbreaking Dart-Suite at CES, we recognize the strategic importance of this platform's launch in providing direct access to consumers and a multitude of industries,” said William Ryu, Doosan Robotics’ CEO. “CES serves as the perfect stage for introducing innovations that transcend boundaries and resonate with the diverse needs of our target audience.

“The potential lies not only in showcasing the power of our cobot line but also in highlighting the customizable functionality and usage that sets our technology apart.”

Doosan’s portfolio of AI-enabled cobots will also be on display at the event, designed to take on the more labor-intensive tasks across industries including manufacturing, logistics, food and beverage, architecture, filmmaking, service sectors and medical environments. 

One such cobot is the AI-powered recycling cobot ‘Oscar the Sorter,’ which autonomously learns to identify products and sorts them, even recognizing crushed items without human intervention. 

Doosan is also unveiling ‘Otto Matic,’ a depalletizing and palletizing solution designed to handle unstructured and random-sized boxes, which was developed in partnership with computer vision technology provider AiV.

Finally, visitors will be able to order drinks from the bartending cobot Mixmaster Moodie, powered by Microsoft’s ChatGPT and integrated with Tetote, a soft robot hand powered by bendy rubber artificial muscle that uses visual and audio cues to make and serve cocktails.
