RELEASE: Dobot Launches Nova Collaborative Robots for Retail Automation

(Information sent by the signatory company)

SHENZHEN, China, Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Global labor shortages and rising costs are two major headwinds for the retail and service sectors, opening up new transformation opportunities of automation. To better capture this new demand, Dobot has developed the Nova Series of collaborative robots designed specifically for retail customers to perform tasks such as making coffee, cocktails, ice cream, noodles, fried chicken, and even physical therapy.

Nova 2 and Nova 5 are the first two models in the Nova series, with payloads of 2 and 5 kg, for retail and physiotherapy tasks, respectively. They can replace workers to help reduce operating costs and decrease direct human contacts during pandemics.

To better meet the needs of retail brands, the Nova series contrasts with the rigid design philosophy of industrial robots and offers color customization to better suit retail stores and enhance customer experience. The Nova series is also more compact than comparable industrial cobots and can fit in one square meter of space.

Considering that most retail stores do not have full-time engineers on staff, the Nova series is designed to be user friendly. Thanks to the graphical user interface and drag-to-teach functionality, anyone can easily program a Nova without any coding knowledge. Setting up a Nova takes just 10 minutes.

Robots in the retail sector can have frequent interaction with people, so safety is a top priority. The Nova series has multiple safety functions to intelligently detect people's movement, and stops its operation in 0.01 seconds when detecting a collision. In the event of a power outage, Nova automatically freezes in position to ensure the safety of others.

Dobot's Nova opens the doors of automation to the retail and service industries. Robot adoption will spread beyond factory shop floors and into our everyday lives. Human-machine collaborations and interactions will only increase.
