A big step in industrial automation for more efficiency, ease of use and time: fruitcore robotics' innovative Operating System horstOS uses the latest AI technology to take industrial automation to a new level.

With horstOS, industrial companies have a new tool at their disposal that assists them in every step of commissioning entire applications with the intelligent industrial robot HORST while significantly reducing complexity. With an integrated AI copilot, industrial companies can increase the efficiency of their production processes and save time. "Generative AI is driving a transformation of many task areas. The new technology will transform automation and give our customers a whole new automation experience," says Patrick Heimburger, Managing Director (Chief Revenue Officer) at fruitcore robotics.

Fruitcore robotics' new Operating System simplifies and accelerates the configuration and management of all components involved in the process, the programming as well as the operation of the finished application. The entire control of robots, components and existing industrial processes is carried out via a user-friendly interface that makes it even easier to realize their interaction. horstOS essentially comprises three interconnected areas: the component management area, the program creation area and the process control area. These three areas provide users with all the functions they need to set uo and use their overall systems quickly, easily and efficiently.

"Our new Operating System incorporates the most advanced technology and deep integration of artificial intelligence. It sets new standards for the rapid integration of industrial robots in processes such as machine loading and unloading, quality control, part separation or adhesive and sealant aplication," says Patrick Heimburger. With the AI Copilot in horstOS, users get an intelligent assistant that provides real-time support in natural language to successfully master the challenges of automation. Whether setting up the robot and other components, troubleshooting, or suggesting program blocks or even writing entire programs, the AI Copilot enables users to quickly and accurately find solutions for their applications and keep operations running smoothly. For example, if the user wants to know how to pass the part position determined by the camera to the robot, they can address this question to the AI Copilot via text prompt and receive the corresponding code module within a few moments.

Fruitcore robotics' AI Copilot is based on ChatGPT and has been trained specifically for industrial requirements. It provides users with comprehensive access to all relevant instructions, support content and software documentation from fruitcore robotics. To provide users with an optimal user experience, the Constance-based company relies on continuous enhancements of the AI Copilot's capabilities.

Future-oriented automation with horstOS


The scope of horstOS' capabilities is also expected to grow steadily in the growing years. Already today, the modular structure of the Operating System makes it possible to integrate external software and services without much effort. User-specific software programs and interfaces from OEMs can also be seamlessly integrated. "Through horstOS, the future of automation becomes a new reality. The system offers extensive support, even for those with little knowlege, and significantly reduces the effort required for setup, operation and after sales," explains Jens Riegger, Managing Director (CEO) of fruitcore robotics. "Our intelligent industrial robots are not only designed to offer our customers the best return-on-investment in the robotics market. Especially against the backdrop of the ubiquitous shortage of skilled workers, they are also designed to help increase productivity and save valuable time," says Jens Riegger.
