TAIPEI, Taiwan - In response to innovations in technologies such as IoT, 5G, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), traditional manufacturing industries are making transformations and adding value to Taiwan's manufacturing industry. Centered on the introduction of robotics and AI technology from Carnegie Mellon University, high tech start-up BITO Robotics has announced their landing in Taiwan and held their opening ceremony on October 7 at the Sheraton Hsinchu Hotel.

In addition to representatives of Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) and Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and Kaohsiung City Deputy Mayor Yeh Kuang-shih, representatives of fourteen listed partner companies were also invited to attend, including Gallant Precision Machining (GPM), AIPTEK International Inc., KENMEC Machinery Engineering Co., Ltd., and ADLINK Technology Inc.

BITO Robotics President Professor Howie Choset stated that the company name is comprised of “BIT” and “O,” the former meaning the smallest unit of information data and the later representing the physical world. Furthermore, he stated that the company are looking forward to using data to connect one another’s worlds efficiently and quickly bringing about higher added value and benefits. Adhering to the vision of “creating a new world that is efficient, convenient and safe through the popularization of smart robot solutions” the company are continuing their commitment to providing smart robot solutions for smart manufacturing and flexible production through algorithm platform software which is cheap and easy to use with high compatibility.

Professor Howie Choset also pointed out that the biggest difference between new manufacturing and traditional manufacturing lies in informationization and equipment automation; however, it is also often hindered by overly costly hardware transformation and difficulties with digital systems integration. BITO Robotics’ algorithm software has the capacity to assist in the meeting of various schedules as well as addressing the following four major difficulties encountered in today's traditional manufacturing industry: low ratio of equipment informationization, difficulties with data integration, low efficiency of equipment synergy, and inability to adapt to changing production needs. In addition, BITO Robotics can assist Taiwan's manufacturing industry to make the transportation from “stock oriented” automated batch manufacturing to “order oriented” dispersed customization.

While deeply delving into technology, the company has not forgotten their global layout. Professor Howie Choset emphasized that approximately one-third of their customer base is from Taiwan, and due to optimism about Taiwan's smart automation capabilities and the influence of the US-China trade war, their strategic position is set to increase, and they hope to take advantage of the introduction of continually spreading American AI algorithm technologies. They also hope to integrate hardware capabilities in cooperation with the Taiwanese market and system capabilities along with the development of government policies to meet overall industry requirements. At the same time, they anticipate providing standard manufacturing equipment, customizing software, popularizing smart robot solutions, and providing employment opportunities for local talent.
