Realtime Robotics opens Japan office

Realtime Robotics, a developer of autonomous motion planning systems for industrial robots, has opened a new office in Japan to meet the growing demand it has experienced in the region. The new office, located in Tokyo, in the Shinagawa area, will be publicly opening on October 1.

Manufacturing, logistics and automotive companies throughout the region have been looking to accelerate their adoption of industrial robotics to enhance productivity and answer labor shortages. Many have turned to Realtime Robotics to help them remove engineering complexity, reduce cycle time, lower expenses and establish greater operational efficiency.

With the opening of the new office’s lab and demonstration space, these companies will be able to directly collaborate with Realtime Robotics’ team and better understand how the company’s technology works.

Koji Kobayashi, vice president of business development, Japan, at Realtime Robotics, says: “One of the key sparks for evolution in the manufacturing and logistics industries has been finding a way to accomplish more, while using less resources.

“Our technology can help improve robotic automation and collaboration, limiting programming complexity and speeding deployment and redeployment. We’re excited to open this new space and be able to showcase these advances to customers and partners, both new and existing.”

Realtime Robotics transforms robotic automation with its innovative, real-time collision-free motion planning technology. The company’s advances enable single or multiple robots to operate autonomously at full speed, in both unstructured and uncaged environments.

Realtime Robotics recently announced a $31.4 million Series A investment round. The company works with Japanese customers and partners such as Fanuc, Kawasaki, Mitsubishi Electric, Siemens Digital Industries Software, and Yaskawa.

Peter Howard, CEO, Realtime Robotics, says: “Realtime Robotics is well-positioned to take advantage of the increased market demand for technology like ours that can help organizations both lower their costs and improve the efficiency of their industrial robots.

“It’s a perfect time to invest in our facilities in the region, as the optimization and scaling of robotics has never been more important.”
