Company’s Motion Control and Collision Avoidance Software Eliminates Lengthy Robot Programming Processes While Improving Collaboration and Efficiency

BOSTON – July 18, 2023 Realtime Robotics, the leader in collision-free autonomous motion planning for industrial robots is the only United States-based company selected as a finalist for the first Oxagon x McLaren Accelerator Program

The accelerator is an international program created by Oxagon’s research and innovation teams to pilot innovative supply chain and logistics technologies across freight, warehousing and last mile delivery operations. Oxagon, home to advanced and clean industries in NEOM, is strategically located on the Red Sea coast, where a clean industrial eco-system is being developed in harmony with nature. 

Realtime Robotics is one of the seven companies in cohort one to be selected for the prestigious Oxagon x McLaren accelerator program. Realtime is also the only company in cohort one that is based in the United States. Organizers initially selected a few hundred candidates from across the globe for the accelerator competition, all with technological innovations that represent the cutting-edge future of robotics, automation and traceability solutions.

The supply chain and logistics team in Oxagon supports the Port of NEOM’s vision to create a sustainable port with a fully integrated and automated supply chain and logistics network, serving all of NEOM. While shaping up supply chain operations, the team is tackling unique innovation challenges: MHU and asset tracking, pick and pack robotics, freight loading and unloading, vertical distribution, smart lockers and last mile delivery. The best fit scale-up companies chosen will have the chance to work closely with the team to further develop its technologies and solutions, all while pilot testing them in real-life operations.

“We believe our RapidPlan software is the perfect fit for helping organizations re-define their logistics and manufacturing operations, speeding robot programming time and driving greater efficiencies,” added Kevin Carlin, Chief Commercial Officer at Realtime Robotics. “It is an honor to be shortlisted and to get a chance to work with such a diverse group of game-changing supply chain and logistics technology companies. The world will be learning from the innovations and blueprint Oxagon is developing for years to come.”

Other innovative companies involved in the project include Aitonomi AG (TeleRetail) (DE), Authena (CH), LYRO Robotics (NZ), Myrmidon Laboratories Pte Ltd (MyrLabs) (SG), Neubility (KR) and Unbox Robotics (IN).

Realtime Robotics’ RapidPlan software speeds the creation and implementation of robot motion plans, eliminating collisions and making it easy to synchronize directly to live operations.
