The Robot Report – The long awaited launch of Heartland Robotics’ new co-robot product line finally has a launch date – next January 21-24 at the Automate 2013 show in Chicago. Heartland Robotics has reserved a big space right amongst robotics’ largest players.
It is likely that the actual launch date will be earlier, but the Automate 2013 show, where they have a large booth, will be the place to see the new bots in action and an outside date for Heartland’s launch.
Heartland Robotics targets a $5000 robot that is an alternative to low wage workers. It will be a hardware platform that will use an iPhone application model to customize its software.
