Bright Machines (a Flex sub-company) employs “micro-factories” made up of robot cells for the purpose of automating electronics manufacturing and inspection.
Main UX goals
Exploit web capabilities to allow improved, future-ready interface (i.e screen-less Cells…)
Simplify even the most complex and time-consuming tasks (i.e. Recipe Builder)
By applying computer vision, machine learning, simulation, and adaptive robotics to the factory floor, BR change the scalability, resiliency, and economics of the industry.
Main research outcome
Responsive Design Possible
UX should be much more flexible
No Limitations regarding transitions, animations etc.
Full control over which information are exposed at which time to the user – not everything needs to be “on screen” all the time
Use of spatial orientation and animation to structure the UI
