RE2 Robotics, provider of intelligent mobile manipulation systems, announced its new robotic arm brand, RE2 Sapien. With RE2 Sapien Re2 develops a human-like robotic arm solution that is intended to improve operational efficiencies, worker safety, and overall productivity. RE2 Sapien systems feature intelligent robotic arms with intuitive human-robot control interfaces and outdoor (including underwater) computer vision and autonomy capabilities.
RE2 Sapien arms can operate in both structured and unstructured environments, including in constrained indoor settings like operating rooms and outdoors in harsh weather. The arms feature high strength-to-weight ratios, precise control, and dexterity that matches or exceeds the performance of human arms.
“The core robotic technology within the RE2 Sapien arms was originally developed by our team for the U.S. military, and we have built on that expertise to deliver commercial solutions in the aviation, construction, energy, and medical markets. Additionally, our Maritime Dexterous Manipulation System (MDMS), developed for U.S. Navy applications, will now be productized commercially as RE2 Sapienᵀᴹ Sea Class arms,” said David Lee, director of product management for RE2 Robotics.
“Our goal is not to replace human workers, but to enhance the work experience through a lens of humanity using robotic tools that will improve worker safety, efficiency, productivity, and longevity,” said Jorgen Pedersen, president and CEO. “Our new RE2 Sapien intelligent robotic arms have been designed and built to be cost-effective solutions for the operational and technical needs of our customers. Whether maneuvering solar panels at height above a construction site or inspecting pipes far below the surface of the ocean, our RE2 Sapien arms serve as an extension of a human operator or perform tasks autonomously with human supervision from a safe location.”
