  • Patent number: 10928407
    Abstract: Systems and methods for dynamic automation are provided. An automation module may receive at least one map template that is selectable by a user. Based on the map template, the automation module may dynamically generate a robot deck layout map and/or procedure and also generate a series of robotic commands for a robot. The robotic commands may then be passed to the robot to carry out the automation. Accordingly, the automation may be entirely dynamic, without the need for a user to pre-program or pre-assemble all of the robotic commands prior to the automation. The automation module may thus be able to build, in real-time and/or on the fly, the robotic commands based only on the at least one map template that was selected by the user.

  • Patent number: 9776847
    Abstract: Systems and methods for monitoring safety of work vehicles and worksites. Work vehicles and worksites may be provided with target object sensor units for detecting a condition regarding safety determinative aspects of the work vehicle or worksite. The target object sensor units communicate data regarding the safety determinative aspects to a data acquisition and communication unit that produces safety status data. The safety status data is analyzed to determine whether to issue a notification to a notification unit to alert workers of an unsafe condition. The data acquisition and communication unit transmits the safety status data to a server/processing unit for further analysis. The server/processing unit may track the safety status data regarding each worksite or work vehicle and generate statistical data regarding the safety status data. The server/processing unit may communicate with user interface to display notifications and statistical data.
