Realtime Robotics extends relationship with Mitsubishi Electric
13 January 2020
Realtime Robotics, inventor of responsive motion planning for industrial robots and autonomous vehicles, is working with Mitsubishi Electric Corporation to develop a custom integrated solution that pairs Realtime Robotics' smart motion planning technology with Mitsubishi Electric’s industrial and collaborative robot product lines.
Despite the growing demand for automation, multi-robot work cells continue to require complicated, time-consuming, and costly programming, which prohibits the automation of new tasks. The custom Mitsubishi Electric seamless stackable solution significantly reduces work cell development time and costs while reducing cycle time with interlock-free, collision-free autonomous planning. The joint solution delivers the productivity and efficiency gains that increased automation has promised but failed to deliver as yet.
Incorporation of Realtime’s technology enables industrial robots to work safely in dynamic, unstructured environments, allowing the robots to evaluate millions of alternative motion paths to avoid a collision and choose the optimal route before making a move, all in milliseconds.
The integrated robots were demonstrated by Mitsubishi Electric at iREX in Tokyo in December and will be commercially available in 2020.
