Algoryx Simulation, a leading company in physics based motion simulation, joins the growth hub ABB SynerLeap.
Algoryx Simulation is a spin-off from Umeå University in Sweden and a leading provider of software and services for visual and interactive physics based simulation. The company, already established internationally, provides solutions to a wide range of markets including automotive, cranes and heavy equipment, automation and robotics, off-shore and maritime, bulk material handling and mining.
Kenneth Bodin, CEO of Algoryx Simulation, is very pleased that the company now becomes a member of the growth hub ABB SynerLeap.
“As a member of SynerLeap, we are looking forward to several concrete commercial projects together with ABB, one of Europe’s strongest technology groups with a wide and deep network worldwide,” says Kenneth Bodin.
“We have been working with ABB for several years now. Our technology for advanced real time physics simulation is already a part of ABB RobotStudio, the world’s most used offline programming tool for robotics. We now hope to step up even more together with ABB,” says Kenneth Bodin.
Algoryx Simulation is already part of several major international collaborations on simulation technology. The company has been contracted to provide solutions for physics simulation to the world’s premiere robotics competition, World Robot Challenge held at the World Robot Summit, Japan.
Algoryx Simulation has also entered a joint research agreement to develop simulation solutions for disaster response robotics in Japan. One of the great challenges is to use robots to secure the Fukushima nuclear power plant site, still severely affected after the disaster in 2011.
“Visual and interactive multiphysics simulation is one of the true challenges in science, and a strong enabling technology for the industry, as well as for education, for many decades to come. It is really booming together with artificial intelligence since it is instrumental for training deep neural networks. It is a great opportunity for us to collaborate with ABB in this area,” says Kenneth Bodin.
