Automated Techniques Applied (ATA) is a company dedicated to the development of robotics and automation solutions for small and medium enterprises in the United States. It aims to provide technological solutions tailored to the needs of its customers.
First, what exactly is robotics? Robotics, in the simplest of explanations, involves the design and creation of robots. It also involves the study of how robots can be used to perform a variety of functions. A robot is a mechanical device designed to automate tasks that are usually performed by people. The first industrial robot to be created was Unimate, which was utilized to perform tasks in an automotive company. After the success of Unimate, companies started investing in robotics for their manufacturing operations.
Whether people realize it or not, we are surrounded by examples of artificial intelligence. Voice activated customer services, the GPS system in your car, the airport scheduling system that chooses the gate where your will disembark when your plane lands, most video games and even the software to write this article contains some form of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Right now, we are well into the period of AI which refers to artificial intelligence that performs a useful and specialized function that once required human intelligence to perform and executes those functions at human levels or better. Often AI systems greatly exceed the speed of humans as well as provide the ability to manage and take into account thousands of variables simultaneously.
John Paul Johnson, Founder and CEO of ATA, although a Electromechanics Engineering student, participated in various national and international competitions in regards with Robotics, that raised awareness of the enormous potential that exists in the market for this industry. Thus, even without finishing his eduction, he had the idea of creating a company in this sector, to show the small and medium industries the value of these technological tools.
John Paul forwarded this project to the Company Day of the High Technology College and was accepted. ATA received a big boost by winning a City bank Scholarship. Already having a well-defined business plan and a new design, the next step was to get the capital needed to realize the ideas. To get the capital, he sought several alternatives, one of which was a call for support to the local banks but he did not qualify, but with the tenacity that characterizes entrepreneurs, this setback only strengthened his character and motivated to improve their project.
In November 2010, he received support from the Fund for Technological Innovation of the Economic Development Administration (EDA) and got a contribution from the fund that boosts national competitiveness of MSMEs through innovation.
Students Show Off Their Robots
Students in ´Experimental Robotics´ designed and built robots that play games, make art, even try to help land a helicopter. The ´bots recently showed off their skills to the cheers of classmates and friends.
