Omron Robotics and Safety Technologies has announced a strategic partnership with Neura Robotics, a cognitive robotics specialist. This partnership reportedly aims to revolutionize the manufacturing industry by introducing cognitive robots into factory automation, leveraging advanced AI capabilities to enhance efficiency, flexibility and safety.

Omron shares in a press statement that unlike traditional industrial robots, cognitive robots have the ability to learn from their environment, make decisions autonomously, and adapt to dynamic production scenarios. This opens new application possibilities including intricate assembly tasks, detailed quality inspections and adaptive material handling processes.

Olivier Welker, president and CEO of Omron Robotics and Safety Technologies, emphasizes the significance of this partnership, stating, “We see Neura’s cognitive technologies as a compelling growth opportunity for industrial robotics. By combining Neura’s innovative solutions with Omron’s global reach and automation portfolio, we will provide customers new ways to increase safety, productivity and flexibility in their operations.”

David Reger, founder of Neura Robotics, reflects on the partnership, stating, “Strong partnerships and alliances are key to accelerating growth. The strategic connection between OMRON and Neura Robotics is a milestone in the history of industrial automation. It brings us a significant step closer to our goal of revolutionizing the global robotics market. By pooling our sensor and AI technologies and expertise into an ultimate platform approach, we will significantly shape the future of the manufacturing industry and set new standards.”
