Robotics Partners Unveil New Cognitive Robot

Omron Automation and Neura Robotics GmbH, an innovation leader in cognitive robotics, have announced their strategic partnership aimed at revolutionizing manufacturing efficiency through advanced AI-driven cognitive automation technologies. This collaboration was highlighted at the recent Automate trade show in Chicago where the two companies introduced the new Omron intelligent Cognitive Robot (iCR) series.

Integrated 3D Vision Sensor

The Omron iCR, derived from NEURA Robotics’ MAiRA line, leverages integrated sensors and AI technologies to address the needs of industrial customers for flexibility, productivity, and efficiency. These robots boast an optional integrated 3D vision sensor, intuitive user-friendly interface, and NEURA’s advanced safety architecture for improved performance and safety.

The potential of the new robot was showcased at Automate through a 3D bin-picking demonstration. This demonstration provided an insight into how AI-enabled, cognitive automation can enhance and redefine the efficiency and flexibility of manufacturing processes.

David Reger, founder, CEO and visionary at NEURA Robotics, reflected on the partnership by saying, “Our strategic alliance with Omron signifies a new era in industrial automation, revolutionizing the global robotics market. With the intelligent Cognitive Robot iCR, we are removing usage barriers, expanding applications, and setting new industry benchmarks in manufacturing.”

Olivier Welker, President and CEO of Omron Robotics and Safety Technologies Inc. Also expressed his enthusiasm, “We are thrilled to announce this next step in our partnership with NEURA. The Omron iCR represents our commitment to pushing the boundaries of industrial automation and driving innovation in the manufacturing sector. We are confident in our ability to deliver state-of-the-art solutions that will meet the evolving needs of our customers and further establish Omron as a leader in automation.”
