Brain Corp, an artificial intelligence company specializing in cleaning and inventory robotics, has released its “next generation autonomy platform for commercial robotics”.
The third generation platform represents the latest evolution of Brain Corp’s BrainOS autonomous robotic operating system, which currently powers over 20,000 autonomous robots operating in public spaces, and has been designed to underpin a future generation of intelligent robotic solutions to be applied across multiple commercial sectors.
The new, modular architecture promotes faster and easier product development and includes a number of key features designed to expand potential robot applications and advance machine capabilities, performance, safety and security.
Advancements in the new autonomy platform include:
- Improved localization and navigation performance
- Enhanced safety and reliability
- Improved human-robot interaction
- Faster and easier product development
- The enablement of new vision-based AI data applications
David Pinn, CEO at Brain Corp, says: “We’re immensely excited about the potential our third generation platform unlocks for the future of robotics.
“Automated robotic solutions are becoming increasingly compelling for industry leaders due to their ability to seamlessly integrate alongside human teams and supercharge operations within a fast growing range of commercial environments.
“We believe the new platform will be a catalyst for a host of robotic advances and are looking forward to collaborating with innovators from across the globe to help bring their ideas to life and build solutions to solve their biggest problems.”
As part of the third generation platform launch, Brain Corp and global diversified manufacturer Flex, are collaborating on the development of a suite of enabling hardware components and a series of prototype autonomous robotics solutions that address various commercial and industrial pain points.
These are being developed with a modular approach for both the software and hardware components, offering maximum flexibility and utility for customers looking to quickly and cost effectively commercialize new custom robotic solutions.
Chris Butler, president, industrial business at Flex, says: “With continuing disruptions to global supply chains and shifting availability of workforces, robotic automation is at the forefront of the industrial transformation and provides an effective solution for global companies to accelerate innovation, speed time to market, and adopt more sustainable business practices.
“Our collaboration with Brain Corp allows us to deliver a complete, scalable, end-to-end next-generation platform for customers to rapidly develop and differentiate their autonomous robotic applications as well as achieve their business and operational goals.”
It is expected that the first robots powered by Brain Corp’s third generation platform will be deployed in late 2023 to early 2024.
