CobiotX robotic solutions not only introduce a new era of robotics, but also an innovative approach to the market, incorporating the principle that the human-robot relationship should be human-centered. CobiotX is “bots for humans”.

“The first generation of robots, large and classic industrial robots, are programmed to operate independently of humans. And with the second generation, collaboration with humans is made possible. With CobiotX, we are revolutionizing the way humans interact with robots, allowing humans to focus on valuable human interaction. while ensuring a safe environment,” said Thomas Hahn, founder of United Robotics Group.

An American imprint of the European robotics pioneer

The company officially registered its existence in September of this year with the opening of United Robotics Group Americas Inc. Headquartered in Los Angeles, California and chaired by CEO, Corwin Carson. Operating as a subsidiary of United Robotics Group GmbH, Americas Group provides primary access to the North American robotics market, service and support to the company’s growing global customer base and connects engineering and technology experts in Europe and North America.

The eight companies that have merged under the United Robotics Group umbrella each offer products, services, software or integration solutions, and will be represented by the Americas Group. This includes US-based resources for solution development, integration, and production capabilities. United Robotics Group Americas Inc.

“Unprecedented labor market challenges create a strong tailwind for the adoption of robots and automation outside traditional industries such as manufacturing and logistics, creating a massive expansion opportunity in the market. One example of this is the hospitality industry, where 500,000 jobs are filled each month,” explains Corwin Carson, CEO of United Robotics Group Americas Inc. “We will be in a unique position to give North American companies direct access to innovative global technology to help address these challenges.”

Respond to the evolving challenges of the hospitality industry with CobiotX

The world’s first cuban cup, Plato, is making its debut at the Florida Restaurant & Residence Fair in Orlando, Florida on November 2-3 and in Europe at the French hospitality fair, Equipotle, which begins on November 7.

Developed in Paris and manufactured in Europe, Plato is a standalone mobile platform designed to support service workers in a variety of daily tasks, including delivering food and beverages, bus tables, and responding to unexpected situations and obstacles, ensuring safe movement when crowded Human.

By combining the functionality of industrial and social robots, with an optimized HRI (Human Robot Interface), Plato inherits interaction and expression from the world’s best known humanoid robots, Pepper and NAO, and the high-level standards of stability and reliability found in industrial solutions.

“Platto was inspired by smartphones designed for humans, rather than power-hungry, hard-to-update computer-based devices. The architecture used to develop Plato’s ‘neural engine’ is designed for seamless updates adapted to rapidly changing environments,” Xavier Lachérade, Managing Director of Aldebaran Robotics, part of the United Robotics Group. “Full setup without any technical knowledge can be done in less than an hour by simply pushing the cubiot manually or configuring it remotely on a tablet, and adjustments can be easily applied.”

With additional features such as a Bluetooth hands-free control microphone, Plato has the ability to increase service workers’ ability to support parallel tasks. Plato is also entering the market as the only robot that complies with the widely accepted European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, which aims for the free circulation of robots in an uncontrolled and changing environment and the protection of service workers and consumers.
