Algoryx provides physics simulation for World Robot Summit

Algoryx Simulation AB, Sweden, has been contracted to provide solutions for physics simulation to the world's premiere robotics competition, World Robot Challenge held at the World Robot Summit, Japan.

World Robot Summit (WRS) brings together the world's most advanced robots and robotic technologies along with researchers and developers of robots and key government and private industry players from around the world. The Robot Excellence gathered here will face off in competitions and exhibitions (through competitions, demonstrations, discussions and award presentations) to show the changes that will take place in industry, society and daily life.


A part of WRS, the World Robot Challenge (WRC) will feature competitions in four categories: Industrial Robotics Category, Service Robotics Category, Disaster Robotics Category, and Junior Category. Some of the challenges in the disaster robotics category, will be arranged at the Fukushima Robot Test Field and some will be held in completely virtual environments.
Algoryx together with VMC, Japan, will integrate AGX Dynamics into the Chorenoid robotics simulator platform for this purpose.

Algoryx's CTO and co-founder, Anders Backman, has worked in the field of Virtual Reality (VR) for more than twenty years and has been CTO for Algoryx development of physics simulation software for the last ten years. He travels Sweden-Japan regularly for the collaboration and is particularly enthusiastic about virtual robotics.
"Development of real robots without first simulating them is simply not competitive any more. Simulation is necessary for testing different hardware designs and also for developing the machine control systems as well as for higher level control from artificial intelligence and deep learning. However, it is critical that the physics simulations are accurate, fast and stable and that's precisely where we are positioned with our product AGX Dynamics." says Anders Backman.

IntervalZero's RTX64

RTX64 turns the Microsoft 64-bit Windows operating system into a Real-time operating system (RTOS). RTX64 enhances Windows by providing hard real-time and control capabilities to a general purpose operating system that is familiar to both developers and end users. RTX64 consists of a separate real-time subsystem (RTSS) that schedules and controls all RTSS applications independently of Windows.RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
