Robot Solutions For Logistics Automation: Depalletizing & Palletizing

Image
Before now, robots could not move without teaching (programming); on the contrary, a robot would, by definition, faithfully repeat whatever it was taught. 
Compared to these robots that could not move unless taught, robots equipped with Mujin robot control system is the world’s first all-purpose intelligent robot control system that involves real-time perception, motion planning AI which can think through movements themselves, and control. Mujin robot control system is completely "teachless" The Mujin Controller system can make any robot intelligent, allowing them to be used for applications in various fields in ways that were previously impractical.
The main idea of Mujin is to make all warehouses and factories fully automated so that humans are not going there at all. Therefore, we have to cover all stages with automatic solutions.

Mujin is the only company offering a wide range of robot automation applications for logistics centers, extending from vehicle/container unload…

Working at Mujin: An Intern's Perspective

Image
We would like to get an inside look at how different roles contribute to Mujin’s success. Mujin Internship Program is designed to match students interested in pursuing career in robotics field with Internship opportunities spanning a variety of technologies. Today I talked with Tab, who is an intern in Hardware team at Mujin and a graduate student at University of Illinois at Chicago.


What originally attracted you to Mujin? How did you become interested in robotics? I came to know Mujin through LinkedIn intern position and applied. And the first thing I noticed compared to other companies, is a large social media presence, which is very attractive to me. I’m a very extraverted person, so I can see Mujin is very transparent in this way too, which is important for me. Seems that in Mujin everyone knows the product, robots and everyone likes robots. 
 "I can see Mujin is very transparent"
What attracted me about Mujin itself is robotics and Japan. This combination, together, i…

“Invent valuable things with my own hands.” It has been my dream since childhood

A new interview article for Mujinian voice series! Today I talked with Nori, who is working as a System Integration Engineer at Mujin.

After graduating from the prestigious robotics laboratory, “JSK,” at the University of Tokyo, he gained valuable experience at major enterprises, and joined Mujin last year. While he has such a brilliant career, he is super friendly, and I enjoyed talking with him :)


ーー How did you become interested in robots and integration?

I’ve liked making things since I was small. I used to build a wood deck and shelves, or to fiddling cars with my father. From these experiences, I’ve been thinking that it would be great if I could work for inventing things which are helpful and make people excited.

When I entered the University of Tokyo, I had decided to go on to either architectural or mechanical field, which is related to making things.

Through lectures and laboratory visits during freshman, I realized architecture is more about art, while mechanics, especiall…

A place where you can contribute to customers by getting immersed in your interests

We interviewed Shin, who manages robot control, Mujin’s core technology, as a robotics engineer. ーーWhat kind of job is a “robotics engineer”? Mujin makes software that enables industrial robots to move. We plan robots’ movements and design robot control.
ーー What project is memorable to you? One of my most memorable projects is the automation of unloading boxes at PALTAC’s logistics center.
In the field of robotics, even if something theoretically goes well, in many cases it fails in reality because it doesn’t just end with software, involving hardware. At the scene, a gap of only several millimeters resulted in failure to recognize boxes and collision. We found out new facts through several thousand times of testing at the scene.
Furthermore, we had to achieve success rates higher than 99.9% in order to obtain permission for practical use. As a result, we worked at the scene for almost a month. I felt a huge sense of fulfillment when the operation began successfully, and was impressed when w…

Prime Minister's Office of Japan made a movie about Mujin

Image
The Government of Japan introduced Mujin on their website as one of the representing innovations from Japan.
The explanation of Mujin's technology, its social significance, and the founders' ideas and aspirations are concisely explained making it very easy to comprehend.
A Japanese start-up has overturned conventional norms about industrial robots, using motion planning AI. The controlling device developed by Mujin Inc. enables picking robots to independently calculate their movements without time-consuming programming by human.
Their technology is transforming manufacturing and distribution sites, shifting strenuous labor to robots and allowing people to focus on more creative tasks.
Please take a look!

Tsinghua University Student Office Tour

Image
7 computer science students from Tsinghua University, the prestigious university in China, visited the Mujin office!

Starting with technical explanations from our Mujin engineers, from showing live demonstrations of our industrial solutions powered by the Mujin controller to exchanging casual conversation over lunch from our office buffet, we hope we were able to provide a fun-filled experience!

We feel that interacting with such energetic, driven and enthusiastic students also had a refreshing and positive influence on our Mujin engineers as well.

Thank you for choosing to visit Mujin and we hope the day was an enjoyable one!
