LabyrinthAI

LabyrinthAI is a robotics company with a revolutionary way of teaching robots new tasks without programming. By developing an AI foundation model for robotics, LabyrinthAI is expanding the capabilities of robots to interact with and understand the real world.

Luminous

Luminous unlocks scalable solar energy to combat labor and logistics bottlenecks jeopardizing our planet’s trajectory to a more sustainable future. Freeing construction workers from repetitive heavy lifting of solar panels in large solar farm projects, our robot fleets enable faster, safer, and more cost effective installations at scale.

Cobionix

Cobionix is developing an autonomous robotics platform, Codi™, to bridge skilled labor gaps within healthcare, manufacturing, logistics, and other industries. Codi™can rapidly be deployed into a variety of environments. We offer Cobot deployment with ongoing, customized support to scale. Our pilots demonstrate the potential for trustworthy cobots to take on procedural movement tasks, alongside humans.

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.

Ubiros

Ubiros Inc makes robotic soft grippers for primarily food/beverage organizations. Their gripper Gentle is the first fully electrically actuated gripper in the market and receiving a lot of attention from users and integrators alike.

Tutor Intelligence

Tutor Intelligence is bringing next-level autonomy to robot arms, democratizing pick & place automation for warehousing and beyond.

Thinking Robots

We provide custom software solutions for robotic tasks on any robotic platform with standardized interfaces to sensors and actuators. Others make robots, we make robots smart.

Tatum Robotics

Tatum Robotics strives to offer the millions of people with deafblindness their first independent communication tool. Supporting this historically underserved community, Tatum Robotics is developing an anthropomorphic robotic system that signs tactile American Sign Language (ASL)—the primary and often only communication method of DeafBlind individuals.

Black-I Robotics

Black-I Robotics makes large autonomous mobile robotic arms for picking, placing and palletizing bins, totes, and cases for manufacturing and logistics applications. We also manufacture outdoor unmanned ground vehicles.

Ascend Robotics

Smart collaborative robots, AI and perception for safe part handling and precision kitting.

Tider

We found the first working use case for domestic robots with “hand”. Tider can collect things from the floor and put them into branded baskets. Tider creates a new experience of a 24/7 tidy house.

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.
