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

Sponsored by Businesswire

Energid, a leading developer of advanced real-time motion control
software for robotics, today was named to the 2019
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
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

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.
