Moving ahead, we aim to progress in the Digital segment too.”
“Omron’s extensive range of sensing & control technology based solutions-more than 30,000 variants- spread across Industrial components, Automation Systems, Sensing & Safety, Motion & Drives, Robots and Software have been helping manufacturers in the form of efficiency, productivity, flexibility, accuracy and safety as they scale up the value chain. We have recently introduced the futuristic concept of IoT (Internet of Things) to expand their horizon and help them develop smarter machines based on the concept of ‘i 3’- ‘Integrated, Intelligent and Interactive’” he added.
The booth Elecrama 2016 themed "Pure Possibility”, the booth depicted Omron’s forte in automation industry by providing solutions which not only detects, comprehends, and act on information as humans do, but are also able to intelligently adapt to their environments and to the needs of humans. We had visited the demo zone and we absolutely loved the experience there when Omron Forpheus played tennis with us. It senses the movements perfectly and plays with us accordingly. This OMRON Booth with FORPHEUS robot was one of the main attraction at Elecrama 2016 which created lot of curiosity among the visitors/delegates who played with it. FORPHEUS is designed on Omron’s core technology of “Sensing & Control + Think”, the world-renowned robot plays ping-pong not only with greater accuracy but also returns the ball to allow its partner a longer rally - that is setting in place a harmony and not competition.
Check out the demo video which we shot at the Booth.
