Micropsi's MIRAI Software Gains Compatibility with FANUC Robots

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Micropsi Industries’ artificial intelligence (AI)-based software MIRAI is now compatible with multiple robots produced by FANUC, a supplier of robotics and factory automation in Japan, and its U.S. subsidiary FANUC America. The compatibility enables FANUC customers to add dexterity-intensive functionality to eligible robots, allowing them to perform difficult-to-automate functions like cable-plugging and assembly.

Using AI, Mikcropsi’s MIRAI controller generates robot movements directly and in real time. Robot skills are trained, rather than programmed, in a few days through human demonstration, without requiring knowledge of programming or AI. To train a robot, a human repeatedly demonstrates a task by manually guiding the robot by the robot’s wrist. The recorded movements are then transformed into a skill.

“MIRAI is a game changer,” said Jerry Perez, executive director of global accounts at FANUC America. “For the last 20 years I’ve heard companies ask for this kind of dynamic path augmentation technology repeatedly, so seeing it work is really amazing. What’s even more amazing is how affordable it is to add this kind of automation-enabling technology to any of our robots or collaborative cobots.

“I’ve already showed this technology to large and small manufacturers that are asking us to implement flexible robot automation faster, and unanimously, they are very interested in implementing MIRAI,” Perez said.
