THE ‘NO-CODE’ ROBOT INTERFACE
Southie Autonomy is a startup, based at MassRobotics, building intelligent robot software that enables ANY industrial robot to be re-purposed and re-deployed by ANY person, without robotics expertise or even computer skills. Operators show the robot what to do through augmented reality and the robot then programs itself via artificial intelligence.
Winner of the ABB Robotics Innovation Challenge and the RoboBusiness Pitchfire Competition, Southie enables cost-effective high-mix automation by lowering setup time, cost and skill. Businesses recoup ROI faster especially in variable and shorter batch applications like kit filling, de-palletizing, and physical inspection, through the gesture-based, easy-to-use interface.
where AUGMENTED REALITY meets AI
Southie is transforming robotic automation by allowing robots to be shown what to do, not how, saving time and money while providing flexibility, even automating tasks that can’t be financially justified without Southie. The Wand, the unique pointer-based interface, provides a novel interaction paradigm between humans and robots so any user has the flexibility to redeploy the robot for new tasks.
AFFORDABLE HIGH-MIX AUTOMATION
Southie’s powerful, patent-pending software removes the cumbersome requirements of meticulously designing work cells as well as the expensive, tedious, expert-level robot programming (for perception, task, control, and motion), so businesses can quickly deploy and redeploy their robot processes (or workflows) in minutes not days.
