Robotics for a better, more creative and innovative world

Our teachless controller makes robots more intelligent and easy to use. The result? More prolific and capable robots.

We’re starting in the warehouse, helping logistics operations address major long-term challenges finding and retaining labor. Because when robots take on dirty, tedious or dangerous tasks, available labor can be deployed more effectively.

But we’re not stopping there. We believe in a future where endeavors of any size can reap the benefits of intelligent automation.
