Rockwell Automation to Advance Intelligent Automation, Mobile Robotics in Manufacturing Logistics with NVIDIA

MILWAUKEE – Rockwell Automation, Inc., the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, has announced further collaborations with NVIDIA to supercharge the development of safer and smarter industrial AI mobile robots.

Earlier this year, Rockwell announced its ongoing work with NVIDIA to increase the scale and scope of AI in manufacturing. The collaboration is now expanding to involve robotics, helping drive the use of AI in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to improve performance and efficiency. Rockwell brings AMRs and production automation applications to industrial customers who are looking for increased efficiencies in their factories. This will help unlock unrealized potential in this space via the integration of the NVIDIA Isaac robotics platform.

“We’re invigorated by this continued collaboration with NVIDIA,” said Ryan Gariepy, CTO, OTTO Motors by Rockwell Automation. “Rockwell’s industrial AI expertise, combined with NVIDIA AI and robotics technologies, is going to help drive an exciting new generation of autonomous mobile robots.”

Rockwell also continues its work to integrate NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud application programming interfaces (APIs) with its Emulate3D software, bringing users data interoperability, live collaboration and photo-realistic graphics rendering for designing, building and operating industrial-scale digital twins of production systems.

According to the recently released “State of Smart Manufacturing Report,” AI ranks as the top feature manufacturers believe will drive the biggest business outcomes. In fact, 83 percent of manufacturers expect to use generative AI in their operations in 2024. As part of this collaboration, the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork now includes NVIDIA, giving Rockwell customers more applications to help make their operations more resilient, agile and sustainable.
