Realtime Robotics’ Optimization Solution Wins 2024 Award for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Robotics & Automation (IERA)

Annual Award Presented by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Industrial Activities Board and the International Federation of Robotics (IFR)

Realtime Robotics, the leader in collision-free autonomous motion planning for industrial robots, today announced that it has been named the 2024 winner of the prestigious Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Robotics & Automation (IERA) award for its innovative Optimization solution.


Established in 2005, the IERA Award is presented annually by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Industrial Activities Board and the International Federation of Robotics (IFR). The award highlights and honors the achievements of inventors with value creating ideas and entrepreneurs who propel those ideas into world-class products.

Realtime Robotics' Optimization solution was recognized as one of four finalists for the award, and then was judged to be the 2024 winner following a presentation of the solution's creation and commercialization by company Co-Founder Will Floyd-Jones and Vice President of Business Development Japan, Koji Kobayashi, at the recent IEEE/IFR Joint Forum on Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Robotics and Automation in Yokohama, Japan.

"It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by the leading organizations in the robotics industry," said Will Floyd-Jones, Co-Founder of Realtime Robotics. "The award is validation at the highest level for our Optimization solution and the tireless efforts of our team to bring this vision to the market."

Realtime Robotics' Optimization solution has been proved to significantly help engineers and manufacturers reduce costs and increase productivity by identifying and eliminating production bottlenecks. With only a simulation file or digital twin of a customer's workcell, the solution rapidly generates and evaluates hundreds of thousands of possible solutions to identify the one with the shortest cycle time. Customers including Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Valiant TMS have dramatically cut down robot programming time and realized improved cycle times as a result of working with Realtime Robotics.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
