MOV.AI announced that Qisda will leverage the Robotics Engine Platformto provide its customers with Automation and Logistics Robots that handle dirty, dull, and dangerous jobs.
The demand for robots to relieve humans from dirty, dull, and dangerous jobs is growing, and so is the need for automation solutions that will help solve the supply chain crisis. Qisda, a leading Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) developer with a multi-billion USD business R&D and manufacturing sites in multiple locations across the globe, designs and manufactures a portfolio of automation and logistics robots that meet these needs in a wide range of use cases in healthcare, logistics, retail, and security.
MOV.AI's Robotics Engine Platform will be integrated into the Qisda Robot Platform, allowing Qisda to easily develop its Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) portfolio based on an open, unified software infrastructure. The platform contains development tools, off-the-shelf algorithms, deployment tools, operation tools and frameworks, and an open API.
The ROS-based platform provides robot manufacturers and automation integrators with navigation, localization, calibration, and the enterprise-grade tools they need for advanced automation. It includes a visual Integrated Development Environment (IDE), off-the-shelf algorithms and integrations, fleet management, flexible interfaces with warehouse environments such as ERP and WMS, and cyber-security compliance.
"I am excited about the partnership with Qisda as it realizes the MOV.AI vision for robot software development," said Motti Kushnir, MOV.AI CEO. "Use of the MOV.AI platform is an extension of the Qisda approach of using a modular robot platform to ensure fast time to market and high customer satisfaction. Qisda's engineers have put in place a flexible development framework that has helped them successfully design and develop AMRs for hospitals and logistics applications. The integration of the Robotics Engine Platform will speed up the development and deployment of Qisda robots even further, and enhance the ability to tailor superior robots for highly specific customer requirements, fast."
"We are very pleased to partner with MOV.AI, a trailblazer in robotics software. With its Robotics Engine Platform, MOV.AI is driving a paradigm shift in AMR software development, deployment and operation," Said Leo Hsiao, Director of Business Solution Group. "Integrating its software engine into the Qisda Robot Platform provides our engineers an advanced IDE that will help them quickly modify robots according to end customers' needs. MOV.AI Also provides best-of-breed navigation, obstacle avoidance, and fleet management that allow robots to work safely and efficiently alongside humans in highly dynamic environments. Including the MOV.AI in the Qisda allows us to better serve our customers with advanced, differentiated functionality and fast time to market."
