Impact


Custom robotics

We specialise in developing robotics in areas that have not traditionally been automated or, in some cases, where automation was not even considered possible.

Rather than pursuing incremental improvements on existing robotic systems, we focus on creating dramatic improvements and enabling completely new ways of doing business. 

Ripe for automation

Our expertise enables us to pinpoint which tasks are most amenable to automation, ensuring that investment is focused where it will deliver the most value.

In particular, we excel at automating ’semi-structured’ tasks – tasks that are clearly defined yet not purely repetitive. For example, as opposed to a robot that will pick all the apples on a tree, we might design a robot that picks only the ripe ones. 

Human augmentation

The use of robotics to enable humans to do their jobs better, faster or more precisely is set to bring huge benefits in many fields. For example, enhancing surgeons’ capabilities with features like motion scaling, tremor reduction and enforced ’no-fly‘ zones to protect sensitive tissues.

We’re helping our clients build the next generation of surgical robotics, drawing on our deep understanding of robotic technology, medical imaging, human factors engineering, safety critical software and medically regulated product development

Experience


Depth of knowledge

We draw on a wealth of experience when addressing each new challenge, having created robotic solutions across a range of industries, including industrial, consumer, agricultural and medical.

We combine market relevance with deep technical expertise – from both academia and industry – built on a foundation of core skills, including kinematics, dynamic modelling, real-time control and sensor fusion. This enables us to deliver outstanding custom solutions time-after-time. 

Breadth of expertise

Applying robotics in new areas is our specialty, but this requires more than just robotics expertise. Insight into novel sensor technology, machine vision and artificial intelligence (AI) are equally critical to success.

We draw on world-class expertise in all of these disciplines and more, assembling multidisciplinary teams capable of redefining the boundaries of robotics.
