We make robots that work.

We envision a world where robots serve as a human multiplier for dull and dangerous work. The warehousing industry, our initial area of focus, sees more than 52,000 cases of injuries every year in the US. Our first product is an automated trailer unloader that quickly demonstrates measurable value to our users by both improving efficiency while also increasing safety.

By empowering people to do more with less, we can help grow the economy, create better-paying jobs, and generate revenue to fund social services.
