Realtime Robotics and Siemens have partnered to combine Realtime’s RapidPlan software program with Siemens Course of Simulate. RapidPlan shall be supplied as a part of Siemens’ Tecnomatix portfolio.
The partnership will permit Siemens clients to make use of Realtime’s robotic movement planning and management software program, RapidPlan, with out leaving Siemens Course of Simulate. The combination permits customers to visualise, prioritize and simulate robotic process plans. Customers can then validate these process plans via digital commissioning.
Realtime’s RapidPlan software program, which was launched in June 2022, automates the programming, deployment and management of business robots. The software program calculates robotic paths and avoids collisions throughout operation. With the software program, customers create a digital twin of their robotic work cell in simulation after which level and click on on robots are goal factors to create process plans.
“Robotic programming and process planning has been a time-consuming – and albeit, tough – course of for a lot too lengthy. We based Realtime Robotics to vary that when and for all,” George Konidaris, co-founder and chief roboticist at Realtime Robotics, mentioned. “This integration with Siemens will make it a lot simpler for these utilizing Course of Simulate to remove collisions and rapidly take robotic process plans from simulation to actuality.”
The combination will assist Siemens’ clients streamline cell commissioning, enhance decision-making, rapidly consider and validate choices and create automated by way of factors and interlocks all whereas working instantly in Course of Simulate.
“The mixture of Course of Simulate with Realtime Robotics’ automated movement planning and interlocking has supplied a big enchancment to our effectivity, decreasing our off-line programming efforts by greater than 80%,” Michael Schaubmayr, the Group Supervisor of Mechanical Engineering Simulation at VALIANT TMS, mentioned. “This presents to us a tangible and strategic benefit within the trade.”
Realtime just lately raised $14.4 million in funding for its movement planning software program. Soundproof Ventures led the funding spherical, which additionally included participation from Heroic Ventures and SIP International Companions. The newest spherical brings the corporate’s complete funding so far to greater than $60 million.
The corporate is a former resident startup of MassRobotics. It moved out in 2019 after it grew to 30-plus workers. You possibly can learn extra in regards to the founding of Realtime Robotics in this profile written by MIT.
