634AI, the Israeli developers of MAESTRO, an AI-enabled control tower for indoor mobility management, and Musashi Seimitsu, a global Tier 1 auto part manufacturer, have signed an agreement to deploy 200 autonomous mobile robots, or AMRs, across 35 manufacturing facilities worldwide.
634AI's MAESTRO powered AMRs will automate Musashi Seimitsu's intra logistics operation in an effort to increase the safety and efficiency of activity on its manufacturing floors.
634AI is part of the SixAI family, helping to bring advanced technology and responsible artificial intelligence into traditional industries. SixAI said its products improve productivity and better serve people around the world.
Established by Israeli entrepreneur Ran Poliakine, the Moshava, Israel-based company said it solves manufacturing and distribution shortcomings by providing systems to raise productivity and cut costs.
634AI AMRs forge a path in Musashi Seimitsu factories
“MAESTRO's global deployment with Musashi Seimitsu is a major leap forward for our company,” said Oren Levy, CEO of 634AI. “It is a mark of trust and confidence in our ability to deliver an effective logistics automation solution in a real, busy industrial environment.”
“Our computer vision-based AMRs powered by a central floor management brain and collaboration with Musashi confirm the distinct advantages of our technology in complex, dynamic industrial environments, and point the way forward for the rest of the industry.”
Toyohashi, Japan-based Musashi Seimitsu Industry Co. provides parts for automobiles and motorcycles. It has 35 manufacturing sites in 14 countries spreading across Europe, North and South America, China, and Southeast Asia.
Musashi specializes in designing, developing, and manufacturing powertrain products such as differential assemblies, planetary gear assemblies, transmission gears and assemblies, and reduction gears for xEVs (electric vehicles).
SixAI introduces technology integration in legacy industries and acquires companies in both local and international markets, mainly in the fields of AI, robotics, green energy, cybersecurity, and fintech. SixAI has a strategic partnership with the Japanese corporation Musashi Seimitsu.
MAESTRO is an AI 'control tower'
MAESTRO is 634AI's proprietary AI-powered centralized control tower that it said enables effective and harmonized indoor operations. MAESTRO offers a constant visual mapping of the entire floor, ensuring hazards and obstacles are recognized and prevented.
Alongside 634AI's AMRs, MAESTRO can track raw material movements, provide productivity and utilization data of forklifts as well as provide safety alerts for forklift drivers, and even navigate the movement of heterogeneous AMR fleets.
With MAESTRO, Musashi Seimitsu plans to have a more automated intra logistics operation and better coordinated activity, where man-driven forklifts, employees, and robots can operate in sync and with greater safety.
Musashi Seimitsu's global presence includes manufacturing facilities in Japan, Germany, the U.S., Canada, India, China, Brazil, Mexico, Hungary, Spain, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam.
“We have been heavily investing in automation and AI capabilities over the past few years, with a vision to create a more humane workplace where people no longer carry out tedious, repetitive, unrewarding tasks,” said Isa ku Takeshi, managing executive officer of Musashi Seimitsu. “We believe 634AI's distinct approach for industrial floor management and control allows, for the first time, people and machines to effectively work side by side in a much safer environment.”
