A technology called Dynamis was developed that makes industrial robots able to manipulate tiny glass lenses, electronics components, or engine gears that are millimeters in size without damaging them.

The proprietary force feedback technology enables anyone to program touch-sensitive tasks that are usually done by humans such as assembly, fine manipulation, polishing, or sanding — tasks that require the ability to maintain consistent contact with a surface.

Known as Force Sensor Robust Compliance Control, the software powered by Dynamis requires only a single parameter to be set: stiffness of the contact, whether it is soft, medium, or hard. Dynamis is a complex artificial intelligence algorithm first deployed in Eureka’s custom-built robots such as Archimedes, which can handle fragile optical lenses and mirrors with human-like dexterity.

Current robots in the market have either high accuracy but low agility (where robots perform the same movements repeatedly such as in a car factory), or low accuracy but high agility (such as robots handling packages of different sizes in logistics). By deploying this technology, robotics engineers can now imbue robots with both high accuracy and high agility on a large scale, paving the way for industrial applications that were previously very difficult or impossible to implement.
