Fanuc robots are renowned for their high quality and incredibly versatile suite of features, and their newest creation fits the bill thanks to its incredible ability to make use of reinforcement learning principles to teach itself and figure out how to adapt to different tasks and situations.

This robot uses reinforcement learning in a number of ways. For example, it can pick up an object while capturing video footage of the process so that if it fails, it can remember how the object looked and go about altering its approach the next time.

The great benefit of these Fanuc robots' self-learning ability is the fact that robots can work in groups and share their knowledge using the same robotic infrastructure, making the entire process of implementing and taking advantage of industrial robots more fruitful.
