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 tell 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 2018, our product enables cost-effective high-mix automation by lowering setup time, cost
and skill. We help businesses recoup ROI faster even in variable and shorter batch
applications like kit filling, de-palletizing, and physical inspection, through our gesture-based, easy-to-use interface.
where AUGMENTED REALITY meets AI
We are transforming robotic automation by allowing robots to be told what to do, not how, saving time and money while providing flexibility, even automating tasks that currently manual. We do this through The Wand, our pointer-based interface that enables 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
Our powerful, patent-pending software removes the cumbersome requirements of meticulously designing work cells as well as 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.
