NEW: Neocortex Goods to Robot Cell – Collaborative / Industrial Robot Fusion

Neocortex Goods to Robot Cell is the first fully integrated, plug and play industrial robotic work cell, scaled to a human form factor. The artificial intelligence enables automation of high volume / high mix material handling at the equivalent of $7/hour. It combines the ease of use and deployment of collaborative robots with the speed and strength of industrial robots.  It’s compact design allows it to be set into existing manual work stations without modifications. The system is ready to work within hours.  Neocortex provides for human-like flexibility at speeds far faster and more consistent than humans.

  • Thousands of parts and SKUs
  • Averages 800 picks per hour with peaks to 1600
  • 50% less expensive than labor
  • Ideal for random bin picking, order fulfillment, machine tending, and part induction

Applications & Custom Systems

Neocortex is the artificial intelligence module of our software platform called Spatial Vision®. The platform handles sensor connection, calibration, PLC & robot communication, path planning, obstacle avoidance, vision guidance, inspection, database management, and learning. The software platform functions as a sensor-informed learning and control system. It’s utility best matches the effort of semi-skilled labor.

Universal designs and implements many custom systems using Neocortex.

Fast. Flexible. Reliable.

  • Cycle times typically exceed human speeds by 25%
  • Handles thousands of different SKUs with the same workcell
  • 99.1% to 99.98% reliability
  • Accuracy of 0.25mm to 12mm (based on sensor choice)
“Universal Robotics has tackled the toughest robotic random bin picking problem and solved it!  High speed robotic picking designed for thousands of different items with 100% verification is unheard of.  I’ve been doing automation for 20 years, and what they have accomplished is brilliant.”
–Tim Chambers, President, R/X Automation Solutions

The software platform is sensor and machine independent, working with most sensor types and brands of robots, conveyors and other actuated machines. As hardware improves, systems are easily upgraded. Applications can also be retrofitted to existing systems, processes, and floor space, improving functionality.
