Micropsi Industries Makes Full MIRAI Accessibility a Reality for IIoT

By Alex Passett

Robotic automation has become an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) cornerstone, as it represents several definite benefits; impressive robot (or cobot, i.e. “collaborative robot”) connectivity allows for both intuitive operator control and the consistent transmission of data (including robotics status updates, environmental triggers, etc.), plus relatively easier completion rates of assembly line-esque tasks with increased productivity and a reduction in manual errors. With artificial intelligence (AI) baked in, robotics systems in myriad industrial settings can be trained on specifically tailored data subsets in order to, simply put, make new things possible for a smarter-enabled era.

Micropsi Industries is well on top of this. Automating manual workstations both quickly and inexpensively is what Micropsi does. With its MIRAI software, industrial robots are able to handle variance in production. MIRAI-powered robots and cobots use cameras and sensors to react in real time to dynamic workspace conditions; workers can even mount a robot with MIRAI on heels and have it take over individual work steps on the move.

Moreover, robots and cobots with MIRAI often achieve an ROI in less than 12 months, per a Micropsi representative. With MIRAI, teams of non-engineers can build up internal AI expertise, freeing them from external automation providers in due time.

Sounds solid, right?

It gets better.

MIRAI will soon be accessible for all robotics users. In other words, this indicates that Micropsi is set to be vendor agnostic (with hardware-agnostic integration).

Previously compatible exclusively with Universal Robots and FANUC robot, Micropsi has announced that MIRAI will become available for KUKA robots. This is expected for early Q4 of 2023.

"Our new integration with KUKA expands the number of users who can utilize MIRAI to automate applications that were previously not feasible or cost-effective to automate, such as cable insertion, gear picking or leak testing," said Prof. Dominik Bösl, CTO of Micropsi. "And this is just the beginning, as we continue to push the boundaries of automation. By making MIRAI available to all automation professionals, regardless of the robot platform they prefer, they can create flexible and high-performing robotic movement without the need for expensive and difficult coding."

KUKA leaders also recognize benefits MIRAI offers.

“With innovative technologies like MIRAI, our customers benefit from even more versatility to automate applications they couldn't automate before,” said Christian Felkel, Vice President of Industry Management Electronics at KUKA. “With MIRAI, they can now automate these applications much faster and more affordably than possible with other programming.”
