In the current research and development (R&D) process, many mundane and repetitive tasks are still done manually. In addition, experimental data is often stored by individual researchers and is not effectively utilized. All this prevents researchers from fully utilizing their knowledge and experience in concentrating on creating ideas for new products, product improvements, and research plans.
LiNKX's Digital Lab is a digital laboratory solution that facilitates research by automating simple routine tasks in R&D laboratories with collaborative robots, organizing and storing research data in the cloud, and improving the efficiency of experiments with AI algorithms.
Digital Lab solves the problems above and enables cost and time reduction, productivity improvement, in R&D. By replacing manual work with collaborative robots, we can reduce the burden on researchers and research support members, improve the accuracy of experimental work, and reduce the loss of raw materials generated by experiments. In addition, by linking the robots to a database, research data can be collected in a format that is easy for researchers to input, save and visualize.
①Automation of manual tasks
First, we investigate and analyze the operations of each laboratory, and propose operations that can be automated. By using robots to operate the research instruments and equipment, automation can be done at a low cost and in a small space. Also, by linking the information acquired from the robot to the researcher's work terminal, remote observation and instruction experiments can be performed.
②Research data management and visualization
If your laboratory does not have a data management system, we can propose a data collection process and provide you with a data format that is useful for your laboratory. We will connect the system to the installed robot and research equipment so that it can automatically acquire data, such as the tracking system for beakers and jars containing experimental materials. The acquired research data will be visualized for quicker reference. In addition to the design and implementation of new data management systems, we can also propose improvements to existing systems, such as migration to the cloud or integration with other robotics / AI solutions.
③Optimization of experimental design
Using past research data, we can propose and implement AI engines to support the designing of new experiments. We can also provide support tools that contain the knowledge, experience, and intuition of experienced researchers.
LiNKX has the following technologies that make Digital Lab a reality.
