Robots That Think For Themselves

Mujin's intelligent controller technology is based upon a proven motion planning and opertations platform used with over 1000 robots over the past 10 years. SInce 2011, Mujin has been actively developing this technology as well as selling complimentary high-value add products.

Mujin has been focussed on improving industrial robotics since its inception with a simple belief that the more intelligent and easier to use we can make a robot, the more we are able to improve productivity in production robot environments. All Mujin robot systems are based on high-operability control devices, the Mujin controller platform, high performance hardware, and software components built to instantly bring robots to life.

Mujin's customers are able to perform complex control operations quickly and easily, achieving greater automation. In addition to control and automation products for industrial robotics, Mujin also develops products for retrofit applications, enabling customers to expand the service life of their existing robot assets.

Industrial Robot Control

  • Mujin strives to provide the best robot intelligence engineering available. Not only do we provide the establishment of a robot operating cycle, but also advanced simulation, end-to-end system design management, layout design, custom vision programming and optimization, and PLC programming.

OEM/Custom Robot Controllers

  • MUJIN can provide state-of-the-art, customized OEM robot controllers.

Laser Cutting Application Controllers

Due to advances in material weight reduction , there are an increasing number of carbon and high-tensile materials spreading rapidly throughout the field of the laser processing. This is quickly replacing conventional press processing . MUJIN develops and sells laser 3D control systems that enables rapid laser processing of these materials.


Most Advanced Robot Calculation Engine

The history of innovative technology behind MUJIN began when Dr. Rosen Diankov (CTO) invented the robot motion planning library (OpenRAVE) back in 2006 . Since the conventional robot had become dependent on expensive and cumbersome manual teaching, Dr. Diankov recognized that industry desired more autonomous robots that were capable of performing more than just repetitive tasks. This concept spread among researchers who also recognized this as a necessary technology. Ultimately, OpenRAVE became the most popular robot motion planning library used in the world.

Two Innovative Control Technologies

inverse kinematics motion planning

Fast Inverse Kinematics Calculation

Current robot teaching systems are inefficient. Expenses required to program new robot systems using currently available teaching technology accounts for 40% or more of system creation costs. Programming a robot requires a user to pose the joints of the robot manually while recordings the trajectory. This is a time consuming process that does not guarantee that operation is optimal. In addition, the ongoing requirement for new teaching operations to account for new task increases the difficulty and costs associated with keeping an entire plant optimized.

motion planning

Real World Motion Planning

Mujin-enabled robots are capable of fully automated motion planning with collision detection and avoidance. Mujin robots do not require manual teaching. Instead, they perform real-time collision analysis to quickly generate a fast and accurate trajectory to accomplish the current task. Mujin controller SIM is capable of providing 95% accuracy from simulation to real world robot application. This dramaticlaly reduces the time required to get real world robot systems up and running even when teach and learn is desirable.

Interoperable with any robot system

Mujin's controller is capable of interface to any robot system via ethernet or diretcly with the API of the robot manufacturer. In doing so, we can achieve real-time robot system control and can perform real-time collision detection and avoidance. The model of the robot, the number of axis, or the mechanical structure does not restrict our ability to control a robot. Mujin's controller is the only controller int he world that can perform real-time kinematics analysis. Our controlelr promises to balance the short delivery time and high performance for production robot environment.

Industrial robots more intelligent and easier to use

Mujin was stealthily launched in 2011. Today, Mujin is significantly changing the world of industrial robotics with advanced motion planning technology.

Mujn controller technology enables robots to think for themselves. This expands a robot's capacity to do more than simply replay trajectories resulting in higher productivity, lower costs associated with deployment/redeployment, and a reduced need for customized material feeding systems or highly specialized grips.

Mujin's intelligent controllers are the future of complex indutrial robotic systems in production environments.
