potential of automation
risk of collisions
Realtime Robotics has developed a simple, extensible platform for automation. The platform has interlocking features that, when combined, enable customers and system integrators to apply flexible robot control technology to vastly broader applications.
Realtime’s technology is a combination of proprietary software and hardware that enables real-time motion planning. Our core collision-free motion planning platform is versatile and continuously accommodates changes occurring in a workcell. This allows users to operate single or multiple robots safely at full speed in unstructured and uncaged environments.
The combined features in our platform empower robots to function seamlessly across many deployments with minimal programming and reprogramming during implementation.
Enables collision-avoidance around known static objects and connected dynamic objects (such as other robots) while executing variable tasks in variable locations.
Retrofit your current application with our technology, which easily interfaces with your PLC or custom task planner and single or multiple robot controllers.
We provide an easy-to-use visualization toolkit to define regions where the robot will need to move. The toolkit generates a roadmap of potential motions to maneuver the robot, its end-effector, and payloads autonomously around known static and dynamic obstacles.
The Realtime Controller accelerates motion planning using proprietary algorithms and advanced semiconductor technology that operates 1000x faster than conventional approaches running on high-end GPUs. A robot can change its current trajectory and choose a new path with virtually no time penalty due to the parallel manner in which motions are collision checked. Changes to the robot program can be implemented online and within minutes saving, programming costs and process downtime.
Simulating your solution in Tecnomatix® Process Simulate with the Realtime Module simplifies and accelerates the process to physical build-out. The integrated technology automates motion planning and eliminates the need to enter teach-points and managing interference zones. Manufacturers and integrators can now quickly and easily plan, simulate, and validate automation through the entire deployment.
For any multi-robot scenario, the new solution delivers multiple benefits:
If workcell variations are causing downtime for your robot system, RapidSense can help get it moving again. When RapidSense is paired with RapidPlan, unmodeled obstacles can be avoided and goal-directed motions computed at runtime, allowing for process variation and environmental changes to be autonomously managed by the robot.
Using our simple calibration application, RapidSense is able to merge point cloud data from multiple depth cameras. Additionally, the RapidSense interface suggests optimal camera placements and notifies users when variance in calibration is detected. With a unified architecture for occlusion detection, RapidSense enables a robot to react accordingly when a portion of the workcell might not be visible.
When using RapidSense, users will have fully visualized high speed detection of dynamic obstacles. This enables robots to adapt to changes in their environment in real-time and complete their task.
Our technology works with a growing array of leading robots, end-of-arm-tools with valid CAD models, 3D point-cloud producing depth sensors, PLCs or custom task planners that communicate over ethernet-based protocols, and with various simulation packages. This means customers can utilize their existing partnerships and still integrate the Realtime Robotics solutions.
