Robotics Business Review and IDC Name Energid to RBR50 List for Innovation, Market Transformation, and Commercial Success

Recognized for its Leadership in Real-Time Adaptive Robotic Motion Control and Path Planning

Cambridge, MA, May 16, 2019 --( Energid, a leading developer of advanced real-time motion control software for robotics, today was named to the 2019 RBR50 list of leading automation companies as selected by Robotics Business Review and IDC. Energid was also named in 2018, 2015 and 2013 to the annual list of the 50 most innovative and transformative robotics companies that have achieved commercial success in the previous year.

Energid’s Actin 5 software development toolkit (SDK) has transformed the market by allowing robotic system developers to quickly and easily design, model and control complex robotic systems from proof of concept through deployment. The Actin software responds in real time to sensory input and directs the robot on the most efficient path to take while avoiding collisions, singularities, and joint limits, allowing developers to focus on the robot’s tasks rather than its joint movement. The robot motion is updated automatically without requiring reprogramming, even in dynamic, mission-critical environments.

Actin has proven deployments in industrial, commercial, collaborative, and consumer robotic systems such as mobile robots, robots mounted on rails, underwater robots and bin picking.

“Being named again to this prestigious list highlights the market demand for sophisticated robotic control and tasking software – and how Actin can save companies years developing in-house software or integrating open source approaches,” said Neil Tardella, CEO, Energid. “Getting to market faster and with unique differentiation is especially critical for these developers as more companies seek robots for increasingly complex tasks.”

More on the RBR50
For 2019, Robotics Business Review teamed up with leading market intelligence firm IDC to select the winners from commercial and industrial robotics categories, including component makers, collaborative robotics, autonomous mobile robots, artificial intelligence, healthcare and service robotics, and more. All of the 2019 RBR50 companies will be listed in an exclusive database available to RBR Insiders. A dedicated webcast later this year will also discuss this year’s RBR50 selections.
