Realtime Robotics was founded in March 2016 by Duke University professors Dan Sorin (Computer Architecture), George Konidaris (Robotics & Motion Planning), and a few of their top researchers, based on their groundbreaking DARPA-funded research.
Realtime has developed a motion planning processor that it claims enables robots to perform complex motion planning tasks up to 10,000 times faster than their predecessors, while using significantly less power. The company sees industrial robots and autonomous vehicles as two primary markets.
Realtime’s processor can plan in less than a millisecond, overcoming the primary obstacle preventing robots and autonomous vehicles from achieving their potential. Realtime’s processor will enable robots with sophisticated arms to generate collision-free motion in unstructured and dynamic environments in real time, making them useful for tasks well beyond the precise, rigid, and repetitive industrial tasks where they are currently employed.View Company
