HISTORIES OF SUCCESS OF GENERATIONS' START-UPs — GRADUATES
— a cross-platform technology for co-operation of industrial robots and dynamic allocation of tasks. It solves the problem of horizontal and vertical integration within Industry 4.0.

Maximize

The RCML is not used for programming robots, but their tasks: RCML “questions” robots, understands their capabilities and for each one generates the sequence of actions necessary for solving a particular problem.
In 2014, programmers led by the associate professor of the department of automation and telemechanics of the Perm Polytechnic University Michal Tyulkin joined together to work on the Robot Control Meta Language — RCML project. There were two founders of the project. Currently, seven people are already working on it. Over the last two years, they developed a universal language for managing complex solutions in robotics.
It was planned to increase the efficiency of large enterprises around the world, improve the quality of production and earn on the sale of ready solutions. To expand the range of potential customers and scale the project, the RCML founders decided to take part in start-up-accelerator GenerationS — the largest one in Russia. As a result, the proposed solution and the product of the project team attracted one of the industrial partners of the accelerator — the engine building company NPO Saturn.
Currently, young entrepreneurs-programmers are already working with large European and Asian companies. During the participation in the accelerator, the RCML attracted € 500 thousand of 'angelic' investments, actively prepares the next round of € 2 million and was included in the Future Factories project of the TechNet Working Group of the National Technological Initiative (NTI) implemented jointly with NPO Saturn.
— a technology of positioning objects inside the premises on the basis of active radio tags, working on the Bluetooth protocol. It is used to automate the management of production assets in large industries: It makes it possible to reduce material and time costs to 20 %.
