Solid route to market: commercial collaborations for robot supply have been established, with the first unit shipped. Vetted by National Science Foundation: won a highly competitive $1.2M SBIR grant from NSF with eligibility for a $500K matching grant. Friends and family round completed with $500K invested. Cutting-edge technology and proven product-market fit: proprietary mobile manipulator robots for rehabilitation and AI-enabled automation based on cutting-edge, force-control technology with 5 pending patents.
Roboligent designs new types of mobile manipulator robots to automate mundane, manual tasks in service areas, such as clinics and logistics. The robots are built from the ground up based on patent-pending, force-control technology, integrated with advanced AI perception, enabling them to perform tasks previously hard to automate with existing robots.
Our mobile manipulator, on the other hand, can work closely with humans as the manipulator can be stopped and pushed at any time. Our robots can even be stopped by an egg, as seen in the test video. The hyper transparent compliance makes it easy to automate tasks with caution-free physical interaction including touching, brushing, interrupting, pushing, pulling, hammering, etc. As a result, the manipulator performs tasks that robots struggle with. Its dynamically interactive and compliant manipulation is paired with AI perception for picking automation, not just stationary picking on conveyor belts in a quasi 2D environment, but mobile picking in full 3D situations with high variability. This allows the human body to maintain continuous physical contact with free or guided movements with precise support or assistance force, opening new possibilities of human-robot collaboration.
