MIRAI: A Vision-Based Robot Control System for Tackling Variance

With MIRAI, industrial robots can handle variance in position, shape, or movement in the workspace. Using artificial intelligence, the MIRAI controller generates robot movements directly and in real-time, as opposed to outputting individual measurements. Deploy MIRAI in assembly, quality inspection, machine tending, contour following, or other applications. MIRAI can be used for multiple steps within a task. It can also be flexibly retrained for new tasks.

Skills are not programmed but trained through human demonstration in a few days — no knowledge of programming or AI necessary. To train a robot, a human performs repeated demonstrations of a task by manually guiding the robot by the robot’s wrist. The movements are recorded by a nearby camera and a force torque sensor and are then transformed into a MIRAI skill.

Benefits of MIRAI

Variance coping: Industrial robots with MIRAI are able to deal with variance in a workspace, performing tasks that would be very hard or impossible to hand-engineer.

Easy deployment: Customers can quickly and easily train or retrain robot movements by themselves in just a few days. No knowledge of programming or AI is required.

Application flexibility: Because MIRAI-enabled robots learn many tasks, they can be trained and retrained for various process steps.

Cost effectiveness: MIRAI is a cost-effective solution for highly complex tasks. Expensive, special-purpose systems are not necessary anymore. It can be used for various process steps.

How Does It Work?


Connect the MIRAI Controller


Plug together robot, a force sensor, cameras, and the MIRAI controller.


Demonstrate How To React To Variance


Show examples to the robot (which is watching through the camera): How could the task vary, how would a human react?


Machine Learning Through Generalization


Our cloud servers generalize over the demonstrations and deliver a robot skill.


Refine and Deploy


Test the results, then use the skill in a traditional robot program.
