National Science Foundation Funds Energid Technologies for Developing Robotic Manipulation Technology

Energid Technologies Corporation achieved grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop robotic manipulation technology for a more affordable manufacturing process. Through this two-year project, the operators can exhibit maximum achievement with the existing hardware capability.

Earlier, complex and intricate manufacturing process with low precision, power and speed were employed. These processes, besides being time-consuming were expensive. Energid came up with a technical and market approach wherein innovative software can be developed to improve the performance of robotic hardware. This versatile software will therefore allow cost-effective manufacturing.

According to the CTO at Energid Technologies James English, construction of manufacturing capability on software will enable the technology to furnish the existing growing demand in the robotics industry. This new innovative capability will contribute to revolutionary results.

Following the previous achievement of commercialization by Energid, this funding has been granted by the NSF. In the previous grant, Energid devised technically advanced, real-time grasping and manipulation software. The latest funding by NSF complements the earlier achievement by Energid.

This project includes technology developments that can control the flaws and limitations existing in hardware. This can be achieved by leveraging robotic tools directly to optimize the movement, without the integrated robot mechanism. The new capability can be therefore designed as software that can be activated and controlled by local and remote human operators. The new development will contribute to efficient and cost-effective manufacturing, thereby eliminating intricate methods involving assemblage, through-hole components etc. The project will be executed in Texas, Massachusetts, and Arizona. The project is funded by NSF grant 0848925.
