Robot Democratization: A Machine for Every Manufacturer   

Cache   

With collaborative robots proliferating, we wanted to know who’s using these robots and what tasks they’re doing. Design News caught up with Walter Vahey, executive vice-president at Teradyne, a company that helps manufacturers gear up their automation. Vahey sees a real change in the companies that are deploying robotics. For years robots were tools only for the largest manufacturers. They required expensive care and feeding in the form of integrators and programming. Now, collaborative robots require configuration rather than programming, and they can be quickly switched from task to task.

Vahey talked about robot companies such as Universal Robots (UR) which produces robot arms, and MiR, a company that produces collaborative mobile robots. He explained how they’re putting robotics in the hands of smaller manufacturers that previously could not afford advanced automation. The difference is that these robots are less expensive, they can be set up for production without programming, and they can be quickly reconfigured to change tasks.

We asked Vahey what’s different about collaborative robots and what he’s seeing in robot adoption among smaller manufacturers.

Design News: Tell us about the new robots and how they’re getting deployed.

Walter Vahey: Companies such as Universal Robots and MiR are pioneering the robot space. They’re bringing automation to a broad class of users and democratizing automation. For small companies, the task at hand is to figure out how to fulfill their orders. It’s particularly challenging to manufacturers. In a tight labor market, manufacturers are facing more competition, growing demand, and higher expectations in quality.

Manufacturer can plug UR or MiR robots in very quickly. Everything is easy, from the specs up front to ordering to quickly arranging and training the robot. There’s no programming, and the robots have the flexibility to do a variety of applications. Every customer is dealing with labor challenges, so now they’re deploying collaborative robots to fulfill demand with high quality.

The whole paradigm has shifted now that you have a broader range of robot applications. You can easily and quickly bring in automation, plug it in ,and get product moving in hours or days rather than months. That’s what’s driving the growth at UR and MiR.

The Issue of Change Management

Design News: Is change management a hurdle?. Does the robot cause workforce disruption?

Walter Vahey: We really haven’t seen that as an issue. The overwhelming need to improve and fulfill demand at a higher quality level helps the manufacturers deploy. It outweighs other challenges. We help with the deployment, and the manufacturers are making the change easily.

We grew up as a supplier of electronic test equipment. Since 2015, we’ve entered the industrial automation market with a focus on the emerging collaborative robot space. We see that as a way to change the equation for manufacturers, making it faster and easier to deploy automation.

Design News: What about return on investment? Robotics can be a considerable investment for a small company/

Walter Vahey: The customers today are looking for relatively short ROI, and we’re seeing it from 6 months to a year. That’s a no brainer for manufacturers. They’re ready to jump in.

We work hard to make deployment less of an issue. We have an application builder, and we use it to prepare for deployment. The new user may have a pick-and-place operation. They choose the gripper, and we guide them to partners who make it easy to deploy.

The application builder helps the customer pick the gripper. The whole object is to get the customer deployed rapidly so the automation doesn’t sit. With MiR, the robot comes in, and we find an easy application for the mobile device. We take the robot around the plant and map it. We’ve work to guide customers through an application quickly and make the robot productive as soon as possible.

There are hundreds of partners that work with UR and MiR, providing grippers and end effectors. We have a system that customers can plug into. Customer can look at grippers from a wide range of companies. We’re not working just on the robot deployment. We work to get the whole system deployed so they can quickly get the ROI.

What Tasks Are the Robots Taking On?

Design News: Who in the plant is using the robots, and what tasks are involved?

Walter Vahey: There is a range of users. To be effective at training a robot and configuring it, the people best suited for it are the ones most aware of the task. To get the robot to be effective you have to know the task. By and large, the person who has been doing that task is best suited to train the robot. That person can then train other robots. Nobody’s better suited to do it than the people who know what needs to be done.

The tasks are broad set of applications. We automate virtually any task and any material movement. It’s not quite that simple, but it’s close. With UR, we’re doing machine learning, grinding, packing, pick-and-place, repetitive tasks, welding. It’s a very broad set of applications. In materials it’s also very broad. Parts going from a warehouse to a work cell, and then from the work cell to another work cell, up to a 1000-kilo payload. We’re moving robots into warehousing and logistics space, even large pieces of metal. The robots are well suited for long runs of pallets of materials.

Presentation Layer Testing Thoughts   

Cache   

Originally posted on: http://staffofgeeks.net/afeng/archive/2006/07/05/84187.aspx

For anyone doing Test Driven Development, mocks (stubs) are commonly used.  Whether you hand roll your own mocks, or use a mock framework like Rhino Mocks, stubs are used to in order to isolate the code we want to test.  Before we can isolate our code, proper separations of concerns are required; such as implementing the Model View Controller or Model View Presenter pattern for UI testing.  After you practice TDD for a few months, and write countless tests, you start to see a pattern of how to make your presentation layer testable and everything becomes automatic and second nature.

One of the big benefits of TDD is using tests to guide your design.  Have you ever stopped and wondered if your design has really improved by structuring your code in a manner that is testable?  Are you creating more duplication or allowing too much accessibility?  Let’s examine how the presentation layer can be tested using the MVP pattern.  I will use a simple example where the customer information can enter entered.  I purposely omitted the presenter interaction with the view in order to put more focus on the view.

public interface ICustomerDetailsView {

  string CustomerFirstName { get; }

  string CustomerLastName { get;}

  List<Order> Orders { get; }

}

 

public class CustomDetailsView : UserControl, ICustomerDetailsView { 

  public string CustomerFirstName {

    get { return this.firstNameTextBox.Text; }

  }

 

  public string CustomerLastName {

    get { return this.lastNameTextBox.Text; }

  }

 

  public List<Order> Orders {

    get {

      List<Order> orders = new List<Order>();

      foreach (Order order in this.ordersComboBox.Items) {

        orders.Add(order);

      }

      return orders;

    }

  }

}

 

We start with an interface called ICustomerDetailsView to describe behaviors of the view.  Now we can use the interface to create our mock view.  In the MVP pattern, the presenter is an extension to the view, so all the interactions occuring in the view will be delegated to the presenter.  With the delgation to the presenter, we would only have to explicitly test the presenter.  The reason the view is not tested is because all the logic lives inside of the presenter, so we end up testing the API.

 

public class MockCustomDetailsView : ICustomerDetailsView {

  // implement ICustomerDetailsView

  // you can have setters here so values can be injected for testing

}

The presenter can now use the mock view during automated testing and will not know a difference from the real thing.  All your tests pass and life is good.  Before you checkin your code, you decide to smoke your application.  To your surprise, your view does not behave correctly.  You poke around for a few seconds and you remember your tests actually use the mock view, so you never wired up the real thing.  In this simple scenario, when all your tests pass it does not mean your application will work correctly if you never wire it up.  Sometimes it can feel a little awkward when you are writing the mock view to mimic the real view, so your tests can pass.  On top of that, the interface was only added to make the mock possible in this scenario.  I understand creating an interface is considered “best practice” to loosen up the coupling, but in this case, the interface was created to make stubbing possible.  It is a little smelly to me because files were added only to make testing possible, and the real view was treated like a second class citizen.  Maybe this is not so bad, and I should not lose sleep over it.

Maybe life would be a whole lot better if we could use the real view in this case for testing.  That would eliminate our problem of forgetting to wire things up.  It would also reduce the number of files we have to write, and would achieve the same outcome.  Let’s see if we can create another implementation of CustomerDetailsView to accomplish this.  We will call the new view ICustomerDetailsView2:

public class CustomDetailsView2 : UserControl {

  public string CustomerFirstName {

    get { return this.firstNameTextBox.Text; }

    set { this.firstNameTextBox.Text = value; }

  }

 

  public string CustomerLastName {

    get { return this.lastNameTextBox.Text; }

    set { this.lastNameTextBox.Text = value; }

  }

 

  public List<Order> Orders {

    get {

      List<Order> orders = new List<Order>();

      foreach (Order order in this.ordersComboBox.Items) {

        orders.Add(order);

      }

      return orders;

    }

 

    set {

      foreach (Order order in value) {

        this.ordersComboBox.Items.Add(order);

      }

    }

  }

}

We can use this view for both testing and production code, but the side effect is that we have to expose setters only for testing purposes.  In our first implementation, we were able to put the setters only on the mock, so our real view is not polluted.  The reason the setter is unnecessary for CustomerDetailsView2 is because we would never programmatically call the setter.  The setter is used to simulate data input from the user.

 

Either way  you look at it, there are some drawbacks to both techniques.  This really depends on what you consider the lesser of the evils.  I know there are ways to solve this problem by using a mock framework, but then again are you adding technology in order to make testing possible?  Let’s say we live in a world where we do not need to do any testing.  Whatever code we write will always work.  Would you have implemented CustomerDetailsView the same way?  The second example exposes setters when the real system will never use it.  Is that breaking the accessibility of the view?

 

I understand the ability to mock things out is good because that means your system has enough abstractions.  I am just not sure mocks should be used every where in order to make testing possible.  I know there is a fine line here, like many good things in the Computer Science world, but I often struggle to choose the optimal way.  I hope no one got the impression that I am bashing on TDD or mock objects. In fact, it is quiet the opposite.

Fees like these are why people utterly despise the cable industry   

Cache   
In case you need another reason to hate your cable TV provider and more of a push to seriously consider cutting the cord and going all-in on streaming, Consumer Reports is out with the results of a new study that will make you want to tear your hair out. After studying several hundred consumer cable bills originating from 13 leading cable TV providers, the publication found that a full one-fourth of those bills are made up of fees with seemingly no purpose other than padding the cable companies' bottom line. The analysis shows that the industry's M.O. tends to be to advertise one price and then to sneakily fatten up each monthly bill with an inscrutable array of fees -- such that the industry, according to CR, generates about $450 per year per consumer in fees alone. "The CR survey found telecommunications providers (which includes cable companies) are the worst offender when it comes to charging unexpected or hidden fees," CR's report about the survey findings reads. "What a cable company advertises to a consumer as a monthly price for services, and what the consumer actually ends up paying, can be dramatically different." How different? Overall, the study looked at 787 cable bills. What it found was that the average user paid a little more than $156 a month for cable TV. However, once the extra fees are taken into account, the customer is actually paying closer to $218 a month -- a more than $60/month difference, which means nearly 25% of the bill is attributable to fees and myriad charges. And here's why this is so insidious. In a blog post about the findings, Consumer Reports senior policy counsel Jonathan Schwantes explained the system is rigged in this manner to keep consumers essentially in the dark from the outset about the full cost of what they're paying for. A strategy that's getting more and more desperate as consumers continue to embrace cord-cutting thanks to services like Netflix. "With the proliferation of add-on fees, it's nearly impossible for consumers to find out the full cost of a cable package before they get locked into a contract -- and cable companies count on this," Schwantes writes. “These confusing, often misleadingly named charges continue to drive up consumer bills, even if you lock in a promotional rate.”
