Realtime Robotics Executives to Share Insights on Improving Automation and Limiting Downtime at Automate 2022

Realtime Robotics plans to show motion-planning software in cells demonstrating the future for automotive manufacturing.

Mitsubishi Electric

Mitsubishi Electric will demonstrate Realtime Robotics' motion-planning software at its Automate booth.
Realtime Robotics' RapidPlan motion-planning software for safe operations of industrial robots will be demonstrated at Kawasaki and Mitsubishi's Automate booths.

Realtime Robotics Inc. today described its planned exhibits and discussions for Automate 2022, which will take place at the Huntington Place Convention Center in Detroit from June 6 to 9.

The Boston-based company's RapidPlan software generates collision-free motion plans in milliseconds for industrial robots and autonomous vehicles. Realtime Robotics said its technology allows robots to function together in unstructured and collaborative workspaces, as well as to react to dynamic obstacles the instant changes are perceived, expanding the potential of automation. 

RapidPlan will be on display in the demonstration cells of Kawasaki Robotics Inc., Booth 2332, and Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Booth 1023. Show attendees can “take part in a real-time display of the future of factory robotics automation,” said Realtime Robotics.
