Meet RapidPlan

Automate the programming, deployment and control of your industrial robots, from automotive to logistics applications. With any changes, such as geometry or robot locations, RapidPlan provides automated robot paths that remain collision-free, giving manufacturers highly-flexible, multipurpose workcells.


BMW Group supplier

Programming an industrial 3D computer tomography scan of a car with 5,000 scan points can take days. Or a couple of hours with RapidPlan. Discover how the success of this application led Realtime Robotics to become an official BMW Group supplier.


Customer success

Together with Kawasaki Robotics, we’ve helped a major automotive manufacturer improve programming speed by 70%. This manufacturer reduced the pre-production engineering commissioning process and is looking to eliminate the time-consuming physical validation of robot paths.

Automate processes

From simulation and robot engineers to operators, work in a unified software program, automating processes and minimizing error. When you program one robot, our software accounts for the movement of all the others.

Upskill workforce

Easily train your team to recover from downtime or make workcell changes to free up your highly technical resources

Validate changes fast

Quickly toggle to sandbox mode to visually validate changes prior to implementing on the live floor

The combination of Kawasaki’s quality robots, advanced programming platform and Realtime Robotics software is an industry game changer, providing manufacturers from all industries with unprecedented flexibility, from automating programming of robotic motion and collision avoidance to the very design of the manufacturing floor. This is the future of automation

Works with your tech stack

RapidPlan seamlessly integrates with Siemens Process Simulate. You can either create and package motion paths for all robots in Process Simulate or standalone RapidPlan. Save programming time in motion planning and interlocking using your existing technology stack.


Control up to 16 robots at a time

Make your cell as simple or complex as you’d like, with live collision avoidance and monitoring from a centralized location. Cover more applications and use cases. Verified with up to 500Hz joint update rate.


Easy changes

Seamlessly switch tasks during runtime. Define workcell and robot states for quick process optimization on-the-fly. Preconfigured collision matrices speed up the cell configuration process, eliminating the need for manual programming. With a single command line edit, replace or support multiple end of arm tools with ease or complete geometry changes.

  • Visually define and easily configure targets for predictable robot motions with simplified connections. You now have the ability for group connections, reducing manual and repetitive steps.
  • Smoother movements guarantee aggressive collision-free shortcuts between all types of motions, giving you a more precise control over robot movements. A frequent outcome is better cycle time via better paths between points.
  • Access all motion planning capabilities independent of robot-brand specific programming with new API functions. Easily accommodate dynamic robot and workcell models, autonomously homing all robots.
  • Add moving or static obstacles for future tasks during runtime with dynamic scene modeling. Improve dynamic obstacle avoidance measurements and lower stress on pre-computed or pre-planned operations.
