The Science Behind Our Autonomous Robot Software

 

A Digital Twin for Predictive Material Handling and Factory Logistics

With or without robotics, Factories and Warehouses face unpredictable real world circumstances and scenarios that stress operations and often require human intervention.

But what if your factory could look ahead in time and discover unplanned events or constraints before they occur?

What if your factory or warehouse could notice a trend in logistics and preemptively adjust logistic automation resources to optimize your throughput and production time?

CognitiveFlow’s Production Logistics Digital Twin applies highly tuned algorithms to emulate the future states of your logistic environment while simultaneously monitoring and utilizing live data streams.

In parallel, CognitiveFlow systematically analyzes key metrics,  identifying opportunities to improve KPI metrics, through mission assignment optimization.

CognitiveFlow’s Digital Twin integrates live data streams from factory/warehouse systems (ERP, MES, WMS), IoT Sensors, and/or direct user input.   Our algorithms are carefully designed by leading AI scientists to achieve global material handling system optimization, spanning all modern material handling control systems, including heterogeneous mobile robot fleet managers, AR/ARs, Manufacturing Execution Systems and Warehouse Management Systems.
