International Fabric Machines

International Fabric Machines is an advanced fiber and fabric company specializing in development of fibers and fabrics with semiconductors, chips, emitters. and receivers. Our goal is to develop and enable fabric computing.

GreenSight

GreenSight is a dynamic, funded startup developing fully automated drone systems and a wide variety of related hardware and software. They offer commercial drone-based services of golf courses, vineyards, and other commercial customers. They also develop highly advanced technical solutions built around autonomous vehicles and AI software for both commercial and US government customers.

Cleo

Cleo Robotics is building the world’s first indoor friendly drone for applications such as law enforcement, surveying, security, and warehousing. Current drones are not suitable for indoor operation because they’re large and dangerous. Cleo solved these problems with their proprietary technology that allowed them to create a new type of drone that is much safer, more compact, and more power efficient.

Aura is building an all digital mmWave imaging radar for emerging mobility applications. Aura’s patented software defined radar delivers high-resolution 5D location and imagery for drone detection and tracking, Smart traffic management, and autonomous vehicles.

Apparel Robotics Corporation

Apparel Robotics Corporation is a Boston-based robotics and advanced manufacturing startup. Founded in 2022 Apparel Robotics is leading the charge towards a new era of autonomous clothing manufacturing by solving the key problem – material handling of fabrics. Manipulating deformable objects with robots is hard. We develop solutions to make it easy.

The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology

The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology is Austria’s largest applied research institute. The Center for Vision, Automation & Control (VAC) at the AIT provides the industry with research, technology and innovations in assistive and autonomous systems (e.g., autonomous tramways, autonomous construction machinery), AI-enabled process control (e.g., metal and plastics industry), adaptive mechatronic components (e.g., drive systems), and high-performance (speed and resolution) inspection and quality control systems (e.g., security documents, glossy and dark surfaces).

AirShare

AirShare designs and manufactures systems to detect, track, and mitigate threats from wayward and malicious drones. AirShare’s OVERWATCH® Interceptor-UX is a lightweight, 3d-printed guided missile which disperses a non-lethal cloud of propeller-fouling countermeasures to safely remove threats from small drones in urban areas and conflict zones. AirShare has received over $1M in contracts for its Interceptor-UX missiles from the Canadian Special Forces.

Southie Autonomy

 Focus: Hardware or Software, Software. While robotics is a highly integrated hardware and software system, Southie focuses on the software side of robots as this is where the bulk of the adoption gaps can be solved. Today’s hardware is highly optimized and robust, but it requires so much NRE to get working. So, Southie aims to reduce the complexity and skill required to deploy and changeover robots, creating a new way to see ROI on robots. A multi-purpose, no-code robotic system that line operators can use and reuse. included every autonomous system you could think of, from underwater robots to aerial drones to joint R&D with MIT and Harvard to advance autonomous mobile manipulation. As engineers we built autonomous systems that would satisfy the user’s mission and the user knew what they wanted the system to do, but there was a disconnect in how the user directed and understood what the system was doing. Basically, there was a fundamental gap that we later learned was an adoption gap between user and robotic system.It turns out that you can use that same exact lens to look at the industrial robotics sector and you’ll find the same exact problem. There is a huge gap between the people who want to use robots (e.g. warehouse workers and operators) and who can actually deploy robotic systems (e.g. automation engineers). So, Southie has created a new way for humans and robots to talk to other (i.e. at the task level instead of instructions). The result is we’ve bridged the gap by letting operations users task robots at the operational level, instead of at the engineering level.
