Unlimited Robotics

Unlimited Robotics simplifies the way software developers can build applications on robots, and especially on Gary – its unique service robot designed for healthcare, retailers, nursing homes and hospitality.

Klondike Robotics

Klondike Robotics takes care of unwanted and dangerous tasks for consumers and small businesses, starting with snow removal. With the SafeSnow Bot, you never need to clear snow from your driveways and walkways, ever again!

InOrbit

InOrbit provides a platform for robot operations (RobOps), enabling companies to improve the efficiency of their fleet while focusing on their unique differentiators. Their mission is to maximize the potential of every robot.

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.

TergeoTechnologies

Proper urban sanitation is a costly, challenging, and labor-intensive endeavor and it is something that we face every day in Philadelphia as well as in cities all over the globe. Most large-scale automated tools for litter removal are too big to fit into pedestrian-centric areas, which means that these areas must still be cleaned by hand, increasing costs. Tergeo Tech addresses this problem by providing a semi-autonomous robot based on a modular and compartmentalized design. Our first robotic product can support litter removal by following a worker that removes litter from unreachable places that the robot then sweeps up, collects, and stores internally. Our modular design makes our robots easy to customize to fit various additional scenarios and customer needs with minimal changes in a cost-effective manner. This allows existing work forces to be more effective for minimal increases in operating costs.

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.

Resim.ai

We are a company providing simulation as a service (SaS) focusing on building simulation technology for robotics companies. Our mission is to accelerate robot development from prototype to product. We are founded by 3 experts in the robotics industry who have worked at startups and large companies including Waymo, SpaceX, Aurora, Tesla and Google.

Energy Robotics

The concept behind Energy Robotics started at the Technical University of Darmstadt with “Team Hector”. There, we won numerous awards for our pioneering work in the field of autonomous inspection robots. In 2017, our team decisively won the international ARGOS Challenge organized by the French Oil and Gas giant, Total. This was the first-ever recognized prototype of an autonomous ground robot capable of carrying out complex remote inspections and monitoring missions aboard oil and gas platforms. We were showered with glowing words of praise from all quarters for showcasing the potential of Germany in being the centre of AI and Robotics.

Our success at the ARGOS Challenge sparked the idea of creating a business out of our software. It laid the foundations for the successful application of robot software for industrial inspections.

Quick Service Restaurants are facing labor shortages and are resorting to excessively raising wages and compensations to keep their stores afloat. The average wage of production and nonsupervisory employees has risen sharply, reaching an average of $19, far exceeding the minimum wage. As a result, the profit margin of QSRs, which had already been low, is dropping steeply.

Our intelligent robotic kitchen is fundamentally and cost-effectively solving this problem by supplying restaurants faced with a shortage of manpower with the required labor. Additionally, with the robotic kitchen doing the demanding and dangerous work in the kitchen, even elderly workers can be actively hired for the remaining tasks like refilling ingredients.
(FACTS) – Quick Service Restaurants (QSR), which account for more than a third of restaurants in the US, have increased by 40% over the past 20 years. However, the fast food industry, which has considerably relied on teenagers for its entry-level jobs with minimum hourly wages, is now finding a shortage of labor. The supply of young workers is decreasing, and the reasons are as follows: lower fertility rates and the pursuit of high-salary jobs due to increased emphasis on education. This eventually cascaded to 1.5 million unfilled job openings at restaurants and hotels, double the number a year earlier.

Andromeda

Andromeda is a robotics startup seeking to develop a fleet of universal humanoid robots. Andromeda Robotics’ first prototype, Abi, is a companion robot who aims to alleviate
feelings of loneliness from elderly residents in aged-care facilities through social interactions and hugs! Andromeda predicts humanoid robotics have the potential to improve quality of
life for vast numbers of people.

Parrots Inc.

For so many people (neurological conditions like ALS, their field of vision, their ability to communicate, can be severely limited. Polly is their AI-enhanced assistive parrot, perched on their wheelchair or bedside, giving them a 360-degree field of vision, enhancing their ability to communicate, and uplifting their sense of independence. All at a fraction of the cost of current cumbersome dehumanizing solutions. At Parrots, we’re passionate about helping everyone find their own limitless potential.

Burro

We’ve built a smarter farming system using user-friendly, autonomous robots that work side-by-side (farmworkers to make agriculture more productive and sustainable. Each Burro increases the productivity of a 6 to 10 person harvest-crew by 10% to 40%+ while simultaneously laying the base for more autonomy where it is needed most.
