It’s been an exciting and crazy summer for us at Realtime Robotics. It seems like just yesterday we were waiting for the warmer weather and sunnier days to arrive after a rainy spring season here in Boston. Now, here we are, with only a couple of weeks left in the season. 

As you may have seen, in the past couple of months we’ve launched our RapidPlan robot motion planning and collision-avoidance software to wide acclaim, showcasing it in action with a pair of demos with our partners at Automate 2022. The reaction has been tremendous so far, and I’m excited for what this means for both future of industrial robotics, and the future of our company.

I’d be remiss, however, if I didn’t add to the list a couple of exciting things that I’ve been doing this summer. I had the opportunity to not only attend a pair of events in the recent months with our strategic partner Siemens, but I was also able to take the stage and share details on how Siemens and Realtime Robotics had been able to collaborate.

At Siemens Realize LIVE events in Las Vegas and Berlin, I presented our work with the teams at Siemens’ Digital Industries Software and Factory Automation (FA) divisions. Our technology partnership has led to the development of powerful software tools that help automate many of the most time-consuming aspects of creating and commissioning robotic work cells both in the digital twin and on the shop-floor.  

We’ve been close partners with Siemens for a while, with our technology helping to simplify robot programming by automating motion programming.

Together, Siemens and Realtime have worked with numerous customers in pilot projects to understand use-cases and requirements. As a result of this excellent collaboration, we’re now preparing for a joint market release of the RapidPlan plugin for Process Simulate in the coming months. 

There are many benefits to the end-user that result from our partnership – and while I can’t go into all the details here, suffice to say that there are truly exciting things on the way from Siemens and Realtime Robotics.

So, in the meantime, enjoy the end of your summer, kick up your feet one last time – and keep your eyes peeled for what’s to come from us later in the Fall.
