Realtime Robotics Named Finalist in Automate Launch Pad Startup Competition
Mar. 26, 2019
Enables Robots to Operate Collision-Free in Dynamic, Unstructured Environments
BOSTON (Mar. 26, 2019) – Realtime Robotics, an innovative automation startup incubated at MassRobotics, has been selected from a highly competitive field as a finalist in the Launch Pad Startup Competition to be held at Automate in Chicago. The company, along with six others, will pitch its technology solution to a panel of judges and vie for a $10,000 prize on Wed., Apr. 10 at 3 pm CT at McCormick Place’s “Win the Future” theater.
Realtime Robotics is changing the way robots interact with the real world of factory and warehouse operations. While demand for increased automation among manufacturers and distributors of all sizes is on the rise, there are significant obstacles to the widespread adoption of both industrial and collaborative robots:
the costs associated with ensuring the safety of people in and around the work-cell
the inability to navigate seamlessly in dynamic environments
the need to slow down performance in order for robots to be safe and accurate
Realtime Robotics’ solution for collision-free motion planning eliminates these challenges. Built on next-generation computer processing and innovative software, its products make it possible for robots to navigate dynamic environments smoothly, quickly and intuitively.
“We’re excited to be a part of this showcase of companies that are driving automation forward,” said Jason Barton, Chief Commercial Officer of Realtime Robotics. “We believe that when robots break free from the constraints which limit their ability to work with people, the real benefits of automation will finally become a reality.”
