Vention is collaborating with NVIDIA to bring industrial automation technology to small and medium manufacturers by using NVIDIA AI and accelerated computing to advance cloud robotics.

This reportedly marks a year of collaborative efforts to leverage artificial intelligence to simplify the realization of industrial automation and robotic projects, from the design of equipment up to their operations.

The Vention ecosystem with NVIDIA’s robotics technology and AI expertise will help bring pivotal innovation to the manufacturing renaissance and overall industry. Now, even the most complex use cases can become achievable for small and medium manufacturers,” says Etienne Lacroix, founder and chief executive officer of Vention.

The collaboration with NVIDIA reportedly focuses on using AI to create near-accurate digital twins significantly faster and more efficiently so manufacturers can test their projects before they invest. Areas of development include generative designs for robot cells, co-pilot programming, physics-based simulation, and autonomous robots. Vention’s cloud-first MAP is AI-enabled, drawing on a proprietary dataset of several hundred thousand robot cell designs created since the company’s founding. Vention intends to leverage this asset to simplify the user experience on the cloud and on the edge.


“Vention’s cloud-based robotics platform, powered by NVIDIA AI, will empower industrial equipment manufacturing companies everywhere to seamlessly design, deploy, and operate robot cells, helping drive the industry forward,” says Deepu Talla, vice-president of robotics and edge computing at NVIDIA.

According to a press statement from Vention, the collaboration with NVIDIA will bring cutting-edge AI to the forefront of manufacturing aiming to widen access to industrial automation technology for small and medium manufacturers. The company aims to continue bringing solutions to small and medium manufacturers, enabling them to adopt automation faster and more efficiently.
