Empire Robotics is a Cornell University technology spinout. The company is commercializing a range of flexible robotic tools for the industrial automation market based on jamming granular gripping. The first product offering, the VERSABALL gripper, reliably and adaptively grips and manipulates inconsistent and randomly oriented objects, with applications including automotive, natural food handling, consumer goods, and bin-picking ones. Videos demonstrating the technology can be found on our website (http://empirerobotics.com/). Some of the advantages of this technology include: - Faster tool up when a product design changes. - High error tolerance. - The ability to grip oddly shaped objects and inconsistent objects such as molded parts and natural foods. - The elimination of the need for custom tooling, especially for short runs.
