We are on a mission to create autonomous solutions that keep our society running. Labor shortages in every industry, human safety and consistency of operations are but a few of the increasing problems that robots will solve. But we cannot do this alone. If you want to keep up with the world of tomorrow, you must introduce robots to your industry.

Therefore, we are looking for partners: captains of their industry, leaders of their domain. Together we co-develop robust and industrial robots for your application. Combining your domain expertise with our autonomy solutions, we will create robots that will change your industry for the better.

Autopilots

Adding autonomy
to your machine


No more need to build your own robotics team. No more years before going to the market. No more worries about managing the entire life cycle of your technology.

Our Autopilots robotize your existing vehicle with our state-of-the-art technology, today. An integral solution of everything you need for safe and autonomous navigation, including sensors, processing power and software.

Our Autopilots help you turn your existing machine into an autonomous robot, for a large range of professional applications. Our focus markets are agriculture & landscaping, building & construction and utilities & industrial assets. Allowing robots to safely navigate through indoor and outdoor environments with dynamic objects and obstacles, people, other machines and other robots, our Autopilots have proven to elevate many applications.

  • Truly autonomous: no need for human interventions
  • Robust thus suitable for real-world applications
  • Safe, avoiding collisions and hazardous situations
  • Fully integrates into your desired workflow
  • Severe reduction of development time and costs
  • Fast time-to-market

Autonomize your application

Implementation phases

With more than a decade of robotics knowledge, we will rapidly establish your new autonomous application. Our approach consists of four phases, which are tailored to your situation.

Phase One:Proof of Concept

Using our pre-developed robot platforms or
your existing machine, we can quickly realize
one or more proof of concepts to test your
application in real-world environments.

Phase Two:Pilots

Our second step is to develop a fully functional prototype to run your first technical
and commercial pilots. By the end of this phase, you have your first commercial
traction with a thoroughly tested robot application.

Phase Three:Commercial launch

Incorporating the results from the proof of concept and pilot phases, we will jointly
create a first series of robots that will be sold to real customers. In this phase,
we support you and your sales teams with the exciting launch of your new proposition.

Phase Four:Mass deployment

It is time to scale up sales and production. Whilst we help you get your global sales teams ready;
we will jointly implement more cost-efficient production methods to bring down the robot’s costs.
Your robot is now an integral part of your business, putting you on the map as a frontrunner in your industry.

Our modular blocks to autonomize your machine

Hardware


The Autopilot controls your machine's motors and other actuators via a range of industry-standard protocols and interfaces such as Ethernet, RS485 or CAN.

Additionally sensors and interface equipment can easily be integrated via USB, and the vehicle can be addressed by WiFi or LTE (3G, 4G and 5G) to show al the data of the robot or remotely adjust missions or the path of the vehicle.

The Autopilot can simply be attached on your machine with its mounting holes; plug in the industry-standard connectors and you are all set.

Software


Including the latest generation NVIDIA Jetson GPUs, our Autopilots are capable of running powerful AI and machine learning algorithms

The autonomy software (ROS 2-compatible), allows your robot to use its sensors, understand its environment and navigate towards its goal.

Obstacle detection and avoidance ensure your robot works well in highly dynamic environments, providing safe human-robot interaction.

Our Mission Planner allows for easily adding, managing and running different robot missions.

Domains

Our proven track record covers multiple domains, but we focus on the markets of Agriculture & Landscaping, Building & Construction, Academic & Corporate Research, and Utilities & Industrial Assets.. For more information about other domains, we ask you to get in touch with us to see how we can work together.

Agriculture & Landscaping

For years, we have been working together with professionals to improve farmers’ and groundkeeper’s efficiency, yield, safety, and environmental impact.

Building & Construction

We fill in the gaps in available manpower, improving efficiency, quality, and safety, and reducing environmental impact, with robots and drones specifically developed for the construction industry.

Academic & Corporate Research
We have made it easy for researchers, teachers, and students to work with autonomous mobile robots through our platforms: the drone platform The Vertex and the ground robot platform The Origin One.
Utilities & Industrial Assets
Our drones and robots are widely used for inspecting assets, monitoring processes, and keeping sites secure. Have robots perform routine inspection rounds and identify anomalies, malfunctioning systems, intruders, missing safety equipment, and much more.
