The Future is Now
Four key categories: drones, legged robots, wheeled robots, and autonomous vehicles.
Streamline manual, repetitive processes that are otherwise too time-consuming.
Control costs by automating tedious and time-consuming tasks, reducing the amount of time expended in manual labor.
Enables faster and more accurate construction of complex or bespoke items as well as lowering labour costs and producing less waste.
New materials such as self-healing concrete, 3D graphene, laminated tiber, and aerographite may change the way we build.
Better upfront planning, elimination of on-site weather factors, subcontractor scheduling delays and quicker fabrication.
Vertical Farming, Genetic Modification and Cultured Meat will be game changers.
Between 33% to 50% of all food produced is never eaten. This is more than $1 trillion / year.
Advanced sensors & data will allow farms to be more profitable, efficient, and environmentally friendly.
Material-transfer applications require the robot to move materials or work parts from one location to another.
Robots that manipulate a tool to perform a process on a work part. Including Spot welding, continuous arc welding, and spray painting.
Assembly & Inspection
The use of robots in assembly is expected to increase because of the high cost of manual labour in these operations.
Autonomous driving will transform our cities, from smarter roads and updated traffic signals, to new practices like car sharing.
Transitioning from gas to electricity will be a major theme in the next 10 years with regards to transportation technology.
Mobility as a Service
Enables users to plan, book, and pay for multiple types of mobility services.
Pick & Pack
Robotic systems can pick up one or several objects and pack them into a box, carton, tray, or other type of container.
More than 80 percent of the warehouses today have no automation whatsoever.
Employees now lift and walk less, have less errors, and can increase order throughput.
Results teach medical researchers and clinicians new ways of studying diseases, making medicines and treating patients.
Allows researchers to easily alter DNA sequences, modify gene function, correct genetic defects, and preventing the spread of diseases.
Medical robots assist with surgery, streamline hospital logistics, and enable providers to give more direct attention to patients.
Autonomous vehicles and drones play a decisive role on the battlefield. They do everything from scouting the landscape before an attack to evacuating wounded soldiers.
Supply convoys near enemy territory, scouting missions where discovery is fatal, and flights through conditions with poor visibility.
Visual data typically comes from satellites, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV), and other surveying robots.
ICON 3DSEED ROUND
ICON develops construction technologies that advance humanity. Using proprietary 3D printing robotics, software, and advanced materials, ICON is shifting the paradigm of home building on Earth and beyond. The company was founded in 2017 and is headquartered in Austin, Texas.
Robomart, Inc. is a full-stack robotics company that has created the world's first store-hailing platform and the fastest way to shop. Robomarts are on-demand mobile stores, engineered with cutting-edge tech, including automation, a proprietary checkout-free system, and purpose-built refrigeration.
SoftWear Automation, Inc. is an Atlanta-based machine vision & advanced robotics startup disrupting the $1.1 trillion apparel and textile industry. The company’s revolutionary, patented, fully-automated Sewbot technology was developed over nine years of R&D in collaboration with Georgia Tech and funding from DARPA & Walmart.
Abyss Solutions revolutionises the industry landscape of advanced robotics, intelligent computer algorithms and data analytics, and innovative machine-learning technology to improve the safety for critical infrastructure in offshore oil and gas, water, transport, maritime, and defence sectors.
Inokyo wants to be the indie Amazon Go. It’s just launched its prototype cashierless autonomous retail store. Cameras track what you grab from shelves, and with a single QR scan of its app on your way in and out of the store, you’re charged for what you got.
Our main thesis is that with unlimited computation power provided by today's massively-multi-core machines we don't have to write algorithms anymore. We can let machines think on the problem by themselves. Our job is to find universal heuristics that will reduce amount of compute needed to find solutions to problems defined by a human-friendly language.
Mytos builds machines that automate the growing of human cells for biotech and pharma companies. Our machines sit on-prem at customer sites, growing cells which they use for testing during early-stage drug development.
