But digitizing a book is a difficult task. This is a job well suited for a robot. Treventus Mechatronics has a very nice solution to the book scanning problem with their ScanRobot offering. This innovative robot can scan any book at a rate of 2400 pages per hour. The ScanRobot uses patented technology to scan and turn pages easily and naturally without damaging the book.
