Livestock Improvement Corporation

Our work with Livestock Improvement Corporation (LIC) began through our parent company Motion Design Ltd when LIC needed to automate a complex sample pairing operation that other companies had been unable to find a solution to. The seemingly contradictory need for speed and gentle handling of the samples was solved by an intelligent motion planning algorithm and carrying up to three samples at any one time. This became a product known today as the ILAS2000.

The success of this project lead into a range of other automation projects, one of which was the waterbath robot that became the ILAS3000.
