The video, which features live demonstrations from the DENSO booth at
Automatica 2012 in Munich, showcases DENSO’s latest technology. Included are
the company’s new VS-Series six-axis articulated robots — the world’s fastest
in their class — as well as its next-generation RC8 controller. The RC8
controller offers advanced communication features and expanded functionality,
yet is in turn the world’s smallest in its class, with a footprint of only
11.75 x 18.00 inches and a height of only 3.75 inches.

“This video is a great way of letting customers see some of the most
outstanding features of our robots in action,” said Peter Cavallo, robotics
sales manager, high DENSO Sales California. “It not only shows them the high
speed of our new VS robots but also their high precision.”

Among the video’s highlights is a new VS-Series robot playing air hockey
against a human opponent, showing the quick “reflexes” of a high-speed robot
integrated with a high-speed vision system.

In another demonstration, two VS robots synchronize their movements to keep a
toy slot car moving from one constantly alternating section of airborne track
to another without letting it run off the edge. The robots show how DENSO's
b-CAP^TM binary controller access protocol enables them to make use of
real-time path planning and thus respond instantly to changing environmental
or process conditions.

DENSO is the world’s largest user of small assembly robots, with more than
16,000 DENSO robots designed and used in its own manufacturing facilities.
More than 60,000 DENSO robots are used in other companies worldwide. DENSO
