Vention and NVIDIA announced a collaboration at COMPUTEX 2024 in Taiwan, with Vention leveraging NVIDIA AI technologies to bring industrial automation to SMB manufacturers.

Vention, the Montreal-based company behind the cloud-based Manufacturing Automation Platform (MAP), recently announced a collaboration with NVIDIA to bring industrial automation technology to small and medium manufacturers by using NVIDIA AI and accelerated computing to advance cloud robotics.

This announcement made during COMPUTEX 2024 in Taiwan, marks a year of collaborative efforts from Vention to leverage artificial intelligence to simplify industrial automation and robotic projects, from the design of equipment up to their operations.

Vention MAP looks to use NVIDIA AI to simplify UX

Vention's cloud-first MAP is inherently AI-enabled, drawing on a proprietary dataset of several hundred thousand robot cell designs created since the company's founding. Vention intends to use this asset to simplify the user experience on the cloud and on the edge.

The Vention ecosystem with NVIDIA's robotics technology and AI expertise will help bring pivotal innovation to the manufacturing renaissance and overall industry,” said Etienne Lacroix, founder and CEO of Vention. “Now, even the most complex use cases can become achievable for small and medium manufacturers.”

The collaboration with NVIDIA focuses on using AI to create near-accurate digital twins significantly faster and more efficiently so manufacturers can test their projects before they invest. Areas of development include generative designs for robot cells, co-pilot programming, physics-based simulation and autonomous robots.

Combined with Vention's modular hardware and plug-and-play motion control technology, the collaboration with NVIDIA will bring AI to the forefront of manufacturing aiming to widen access to industrial automation technology for small and medium manufacturers. Vention aims to continue bringing robotic and automation offerings to small and medium manufacturers, enabling them to adopt automation faster and more efficiently.

“Vention's cloud-based robotics platform, powered by NVIDIA AI, will empower industrial equipment manufacturing companies everywhere to seamlessly design, deploy, and operate robot cells, helping drive the industry forward,” said Deepu Talla, vice president of robotics and edge computing at NVIDIA.

A number of new Vention products resulting from this collaboration are expected to be announced in Q3 of 2024.
