Founded in 2008, Universal Logic provides full stack automation solutions used to mimic light-duty, semi-skilled labor on supply chains. The Neocortex software uses sensor data, sophisticated machine control, and inference derived from artificial intelligence, to handle high variability at high speeds.
Universal spent the first four years developing a software platform capable of handling the range of behaviors the system would require to mimic the actions of semi-skilled manual labor on supply chains. This effort secured company ownership of the platform intellectual property. In 2010, Universal began to sell applications to early adopters, affording the company the opportunity to test their work under the pressure of real world applications. Over time, the platform has reached excellent reliability metrics. Beginning in 2013 the company built a system integration division within the company to begin providing full turnkey solutions directly to end users.
The team is composed of interdisciplinary engineering expertise, bridging software development, vision, AI, robotics, controls, and mechanical design. They have broad and deep experience with all facets of automation, across a host of applications from manufacturing to retail, to eCommerce.
