3 Reasons why autonomous vehicles need to be able to react like a human

2019-08-13T13:37:59+00:00August 13th, 2019|

As the age of automation continues to gather steam, car manufacturers are racing to achieve the ultimate goal: full autonomy of vehicles. However, before this becomes a reality, there are many hurdles to navigate. As an earlier post outlined, rapid motion planning (RMP) is an essential component for autonomous vehicles (AVs) to realize their potential. [...]

Changing the Face of Robotic Automation

2019-07-11T11:43:30+00:00July 11th, 2019|

Realtime Robotics’ motion planning technology enables robots to make intelligent decisions, and it’s transforming how robots work together. Robots are now able to work together safely and productively. So what does this look like in a manufacturing setting such as chassis welding? Developing multi-robot welding applications has traditionally been a very time intensive endeavor.  [...]

Deciphering Deconfliction with RapidPlan MPA

2019-07-11T11:44:25+00:00July 3rd, 2019|

Our first blog in this series explained why deconfliction is a critical challenge constraining the deployment of multi-robot work-cells. For robots to achieve their full potential, they must be able to work together safely and efficiently while avoiding collisions with each other. Without solving deconfliction, robots will continue to have slow deployment and will [...]

Deciphering Deconfliction So Robots Can Work in Harmony

2019-06-17T11:16:53+00:00June 11th, 2019|

Many automation tasks are amenable to being performed by multiple robots working together within the same work-cell. The robots can perform similar jobs—for example, painting different portions of an object—or they can perform different jobs, like wrapping and packaging. In the case of heterogenous jobs, you might even want to use different robots that are [...]

Solving the Autonomous Vehicles Motion Planning Conundrum

2019-05-24T19:18:49+00:00May 31st, 2019|

Our last blog explained the importance of motion planning for the adoption of AV. In this post, we’ll discuss how Realtime Robotics is enabling normal autonomous driving in urban environments. Realtime Robotics has developed its own, special-purpose computer processor for AV motion planning to address the critical need for super-fast motion planning.  This custom-designed [...]

Solving the Autonomous Vehicle Safety Challenges

2019-05-24T11:15:39+00:00May 22nd, 2019|

The future of driving is automated.  The certainty of this future—despite well-publicized delays and technical challenges—derives from the numerous and substantial benefits of autonomous vehicles (AVs).  The potential safety benefits are extraordinary. At least 31% of road deaths happen in DUI crashes, and an additional 10% occur when the driver is either distracted or [...]

Realtime “Graduates” from MassRobotics

2019-05-24T11:15:33+00:00April 29th, 2019|

Realtime Robotics “graduated” from the MassRobotics incubator late last year. Not-for-profit MassRobotics is a Boston-based workspace for robotics companies to collaborate, build and innovate. Realtime Robotics originally headquartered in MassRobotics as it provided a reasonably priced, centrally located office and lab space that offered the flexibility to grow with their project needs and infrastructure [...]
