Rapyuta Robotics Joins METI’s Project to Create a Robot Friendly Environment

Date: 20 Oct 2021
Category: project

Rapyuta Robotics Co. Ltd., (Tokyo, Japan CEO: Gajan Mohanarajah; hereinafter “Rapyuta Robotics”) is pleased to announce its participation with the Project for Creating a Robot-Friendly Environment, promoted by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI). Rapyuta Robotics will lend its industry expertise to the Logistics Warehouse Technical Committee, which will be established as part of the Task Force for Promoting the Construction of Robot Implementation Models of the Council for Robot Revolution and Industrial IoT Initiative, and will commence its activities on September 30, 2021.

METI established the aforementioned Task Force in the fall of 2019, based upon global demand and the importance of creating a robot-friendly environment that facilitates the introduction and use of industrial robots.  The program aims to reduce introduction costs to facilitate robot adoption in the fields of facility management, retail, and food manufacturing where there is a significant labor shortage. Beginning in FY2020, the Task Force will be positioned under the Council for Robot Revolution and Industrial IoT Initiative, and technical committees will be established in each field to study how to best optimize environmental outcomes.

As a hardware and software supplier to robotics-related companies in the Logistics and Warehouse Technical Committee, Rapyuta Robotics will impart its accumulated experience in the introduction and operation of robotics systems to study the standardization of the material handling robot system interface in Japan.

Through this and other initiatives, Rapyuta Robotics will pursue its ongoing mission to enrich and empower people’s lives with connected machines.
