Production-Ready Intelligent Robotics Solutions

"Mujin brings new robotics technology to the U.S. market, with robots no longer needing to be taught how to move explicitly," said a company spokesperson. "Instead, the robot will already 'know' what they need through machine intelligence." Mujin co-founder and Mujin Corp. CEO Ross Diankov will lead the U.S. operations.

Mujin, a Japanese industrial robotics company bringing machine intelligence to robots throughout Asia since 2011, has established U.S.-based Mujin Corp. and opened its first office in North America.

Located in Sandy Springs, GA, north of Atlanta, the office will house the company's expanding engineering, sales and support staff. Mujin co-founder and Mujin Corp. CEO Ross Diankov will lead the U.S. operations. The office will serve as a hub for expanding the company's solutions into the U.S.'s growing logistics automation market.

Mujin's flagship product, the Mujin Controller, is an all-purpose intelligent robot control system. "It uses real-time perception, motion planning and universal control to create robots that can handle complex logistics tasks that were previously not possible by making the system deployment faster, reliable and more affordable, and without the need for coding or 'teaching,'" said the spokesperson. "The Mujin Controller can manage any robotic application by guiding the movement of any robot arm via machine intelligence, a new and advanced category of artificial intelligence that automatically manages potential downtime scenarios through autonomous motion planning and perception without the need for human intervention."

Diankov said, "Companies wanting to automate mundane and repetitive material handling tasks face a myriad of challenges, from the high costs of developing solutions for their difficult applications to unscheduled downtime and reprogramming costs when things do not go as planned or when robots must be reprogrammed due to a change in product or workflow."

Machine Intelligence vs. Machine Learning and Human Control

"Engineered by Mujin, machine intelligence is the fusion of real-time motion planning, perception, simulation and control technologies," said the spokesperson. "Unlike traditional teach-based systems that require experts to program each movement or machine learning systems that `learn' how to pick items over time, machine intelligence enables the Mujin Controller to give a robotic system real-time decision-making capability that allows truly autonomous, reliable and production-capable robot applications."

With Mujin Controller, users begin by modeling the environment and setting relationships between the robots and target objects in a high level. The system then allows the robot to safely perform tasks by offering high-level goals without explicitly telling the robot where to go or how to move.

"With the robot motion now computed in real time without human intervention, the system must understand the intuitions behind completing tasks and then position them in a way that enables the robot to dynamically adapt to changing circumstances," Diankov said. "With the mindset of machine intelligence, Mujin makes every robot more capable, efficient and reliable, and allows robots to perform practically any application with optimum efficiency."
