Doosan, a leading global company specializing in innovative solutions, announced on November 16th that it received prestigious honors at the CES 2024 Innovation Awards. Both Doosan Bobcat and Doosan Robotics were recognized for their groundbreaking contributions to sustainability and artificial intelligence.
Doosan Bobcat’s fully electric skid-steer loader, the S7X, was the star of the show, winning in two categories: Sustainability, Eco Design & Smart Energy, and Smart City. This flagship model represents a major leap towards eco-friendliness by completely eliminating internal combustion engines and hydraulic systems. Not only does it emit zero pollutants, but its innovative design also reduces the number of parts by half and drastically cuts down on oil consumption, leading to more manageable maintenance and substantial cost savings. Furthermore, the S7X boasts enhanced performance, with three times the motor torque of traditional diesel models. Its smart power management system optimizes output, ensuring maximum energy efficiency in any work situation. With up to six hours of operation on a single charge, and the ability to recharge during breaks, the S7X is a game-changer in the field. Additionally, it boasts remarkable noise and vibration reduction, improving operator comfort.
In the field of artificial intelligence, Doosan Robotics’ Oscar the Sorter took home the Innovation Award in the AI category. This recycling sorting solution harnesses the power of AI and machine learning. By utilizing the Dart Suite cooperative robot control software platform, Oscar can accurately measure and recognize differences in current values based on intensity and size. With its gripper, the robotic hand, Oscar can sort objects by material even if they appear similar. It has the unique advantage of being able to sort objects even when their front is not visible, making it an invaluable tool in complex sorting scenarios.
Doosan’s electric innovations not only showcase their commitment to sustainability and innovation but also highlight their dedication to creating solutions that enhance efficiency and reduce environmental impact. With their groundbreaking technologies, Doosan continues to push the boundaries of what is possible.
