One networking equipment manufacturer found itself running into a (fire)wall as it fielded a team of human operators for heat sink assembly. Using a Bright Machines Microfactory it re-imagined and re-energized manufacturing processes.Read More
Today we moved into our new office in Seattle; we announced this move back in December, as part of our continued focus on building an incredible team of software talent in the area.
In our mission to transform industrial automation through Software-Defined Manufacturing, world class software and tools are essential. As an engineer with a background in programming software for the commercial industry, I’m constantly intrigued by how different the experience of developing code is for manufacturing processes.
If you’ve ever traveled internationally, you might recall the experience of stumbling upon the familiar sight of Apple store and the sudden wave of comfort you feel in a foreign place. This is because Apple – like many international brands – has long pursued a standardized model for growing revenue, which translates to a standardized experience for you
Twenty-five years ago, scientist and futurist Hans Moravec predicted the tremendous impact of robotics and artificial intelligence on human society, remarking: “Our artifacts are getting smarter, and a loose parallel with the evolution of animal intelligence suggests one future course for them”
Last week we published Part I of my conversation with Lior Susan, in part II he gives us insights into localized manufacturing, what makes a good CEO and provides a bit of advice for budding entrepreneurs.
I recently sat down with Lior Susan to talk startups, automation and his passion for building companies. In 2015, Lior founded Eclipse Ventures to meet the needs of entrepreneurs building full-stack startups: companies integrating multiple types of technology including hardware with software and data.
The pace of technology innovation in the auto industry over the last decade has been remarkable. Cars are becoming increasingly intelligent with new electrification, autonomy, connectivity and infotainment capabilities.
Over the past 20 years, the electronic design automation (EDA) industry has seen a rapid acceleration of innovation, with improvements made in both methodology and tools to greatly improve design productivity through automation.
From 2003 to 2006, I worked at a contract manufacturing company as a robotics engineer. I was the first software engineer hired by the company, an opportunistic hire by a visionary CEO who saw the importance of automation in manufacturing.
Back in 1962, the notion of a personalized vacuum cleaning robot was a science fiction fantasy, and a staple of the popular animated TV show, “The Jetsons”. Flash forward to 2018, and Roombas are vacuuming our floors, Siri is playing our music and maintaining our schedules, and robo-taxis are shuttling students to and from college campuses.
