We can proudly present the IPS Robot Optimization as the winner of the Hannover Messe Robotics Award 2017 - the prize for applied robotics solutions, through our partner fleXstructures GmbH. The Hannover Messe 2017 is one of the world’s largest trade fairs with over 5200 exhibitors and 75 countries present. The Robotics Award recognizes technological innovations that make a contribution towards robot-assisted solutions in the field of industrial automation or towards the development of mobile robots and autonomous systems.
Industrial Path Solutions (IPS) is a math based software tool for automatic verification of assembly feasibility, design of flexible components, motion planning and optimization of multi-robot stations, and simulation of key surface treatment processes. IPS successfully implements the potential of the virtual world. IPS is developed by Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre and Fraunhofer ITWM, and distributed by IPS AB and fleXstructures GmbH.
The IPS software was created by the research institutes Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre in Gothenburg, Sweden, and Fraunhofer ITWM in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Some of the modules created in research projects are extensively used in industry. IPS AB and fleXstructures GmbH provide Support, Sales and Marketing of IPS to companies across the globe. IPS is an appreciated tool used by hundreds of engineers for industrial innovation. State of the art simulation technology based on cutting edge research can be delivered to the market very quickly due to the tight collaboration between the research institutes and the sales organization.
