Cogniteam, which develops the Nimbus drag-and-drop operation system for robotics, has announced a partnership with 634AI, developers of the MAESTRO AI-powered control tower for more effective indoor operations. The partnership will help 634AI incorporate robotic software into its unique forklift-based autonomous mobile robot (AMR) development.

Cogniteam said Nimbus was created to expedite robotic ventures by supplying a proven ecosystem for the development, management and deployment of robots through cloud connectivity. This fits with 634AI’s vision of the future of robotics and the MAESTRO platform, which “aims to give superpowers to the most ordinary industrial spaces.” The software’s semantic analytics, generated from a panoptic view of the floor, gives customers a fully coordinated operation of anything mobile – from real-time safety alerts for human-driven vehicles, or for navigating fleets of generic AMRs with greater safety.

“For those who are integrating technology into their facilities, it is often an inefficient patchwork that puts operations and worker safety at risk,” said Oren Levy, CEO of 634AI. “Cogniteam’s Nimbus lets us focus on our IP by freeing us from developing entire robot and fleet infrastructure that can take years  to develop in-house.”

Developing a robot from scratch, including ideation, development, hardware testing, software testing and then deployment means a new robotics system is likely to enter the market in about six years, Cogniteam said. “We created Nimbus to help expedite new robotics ventures by supplying a proven ecosystem for development, deployment, management and seamless cloud connectivity,” said Yehuda Elmaliach, CEO and co-founder at Cogniteam.

The company added that approximately half of the approximately 850,000 forklifts in the U.S. are used inefficiently, due to labor shortages and various operational reasons. In addition, more than 11% are involved in accidents, placing forklift accidents on OSHA’s list of Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Standards.
