About Us

Cogmation Robotics develops simulation software that enables users
to design & control robotics systems. This technology has been proven to engage
more STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) students with their robotics studies.

Pilots use flight simulators before taking actual flight, and we firmly believe our software
overcomes many barriers that are associated with using real robots in the classroom; such as the
high price and limited availability of robotics hardware.


Why Now?

In school systems around the world it has become increasingly more and more important to graduate students with degrees in computer science and engineering. While it’s well-known that generating interest at younger learning ages has previously been a challenge, the appeal of “playing” with robots in school has not only “cool-factor” for the students, but added convenience for educators as well.

Unfortunately, most educational robot packages are quite expensive, putting schools out several hundred dollars for just one unit. This dilutes the learning experience as students get limited amounts of time to actually use the robot, before passing it on to their classmates for a turn.

Robotics simulation offers each student’s very own robot to design, program and control regardless of whether the physical hardware is available. A recent study actually suggests that software simulation of robot systems is just as effective as the real thing when it comes to training kids how to program them.
