Established in 2001 and headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States, Energid develops advanced real-time motion control software for robotics. The company’s general robot control and tasking framework, Actin®, is built to meet the rigorous requirements of industrial, commercial, collaborative, and consumer robotic systems. Energid licenses Actin as a cross-platform software toolkit and provides integration services to help its customers get to market quickly.
Energid’s Actin® software is a powerful control framework and operating system for commercial, industrial, and mission-critical robots that is sold as a cross-platform application and extensible software toolkit.
This software offers real-time adaptive control – featuring smart collision avoidance, strength optimization, and kinematic redundancy for systems that require more degrees of freedom in motion than degrees of constraint in their tasks. Actin® does all of this while running on Windows, OS X, Linux, VxWorks, RTOS-32, and nearly any robotics hardware.
The company maintains regional U.S. presence in Dallas, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; San Diego, California; Tucson, Arizona; Seattle, Washington; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and New York, New York. Energid also has an international office focused on educational applications in India.
Energid’s robotics and kinematics software has applications in numerous fields, including surgical operations, agricultural harvesting and processing, factory automation, entertainment, and more.
The company’s machine vision technology has been used to meet the needs of commercial, NASA, and DoD customers. It includes software for 3D object recognition and 3D tracking, 2D inspection, and other machine vision tasks.
Their high fidelity digital simulation is useful for anything from medical training to defense training; from the battlefield to surgery and other types of virtual simulation training.
3D visualization provides the most convenient human interface for many applications. Energid has applied its cross-platform visualization to meet a number of customer development needs, from space robotics to virtual simulation for defense and medical training. The company’s visualization tools are coupled tightly with their electronic simulation and robotics software.
In 2018, Energid was acquired by Teradyne. Teradyne is the leading supplier of automated test equipment used to test semiconductors, wireless products, data storage, and complex electronic systems. Energid continues operations under the same management while their headquarters, R&D, and engineering facilities remain in Massachusetts, USA.
