Comau, Intrinsic Accelerate Advanced Automation Solutions

Intrinsic, a premier advocate for the wide adoption of industrial robotics, unveils Comau as its first industry partner. Mainly, this partnership aims to democratize robotics by adding intelligence to robots and making programming easier and widely accessible.

At the virtual product launch, Pietro Gorlier, Comau’s CEO, demonstrated how the company has recently used Intrinsic’s new Flowstate developer product and underlying platform to create a modular solution. Specifically, the solution aims to enable the assembly of a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) supermodule. This is just one of many possibilities for new applications made possible through the platform. As the longest-standing innovation partner of Intrinsic, Comau contributed on all levels of development. It provided expertise and talent to test and validate the technology.

“We are excited to have partnered with Intrinsic towards our shared vision of democratizing robotics,” explained Gorlier. “Looking forward, we will continue to leverage the synergies with Intrinsic and our expertise in collaborative, mobile, wearable, and safe robotic solutions to move closer to achieving software-defined, AI-enabled robotics, which is indispensable for all industries and areas with low automation levels,” said Gorlier.

Through Comau’s use of Intrinsic’s platform, customers will soon benefit from various capabilities. Among them include object pose estimation, robot automatic path planning with collision avoidance, controlled moves until contact, peg-in-hole applications, and force-sensing assemblies.

Solid Benefits to Customers

The partnership offers concrete benefits for Comau customers.

For one, the implementation and integration of Intrinsic’s AI-backed software capabilities will enable Comau to easily develop scalable, cost-effective solutions and pre-configured application templates. These can be used to quickly deploy new or modified applications.

Also, the software platform drives increased robotics adoption and better cost-effectiveness by helping companies in many industries access modern automation that can be easily deployed.

Moreover, its low-code graphical interface helps make robot programming intuitive to use for non-experts in industries approaching automation for the first time.

“Partnering with Comau over the years has brought our team a tremendous amount of expertise, knowledge, and real-world use cases to focus our efforts on. The development of Intrinsic Flowstate has been expedited through Comau’s willingness to innovate together on solving hard problems in new ways. We’re excited for what’s next and what it will mean to the solution builders of today and tomorrow,” said Wendy Tan White, CEO of Intrinsic.
