Seegrid Acquires Robotics Startup to Boost Situational Awareness for its Self-Driving Vehicles

October 6, 2020  |  Pittsburgh, PA

Fresh off the news that it had closed a $52 million funding round last month, self-driving vehicle provider Seegrid is keeping its foot on the gas in its drive to position its vision guided vehicles (VGVs) in the material handling sector, announcing today that it has acquired Box Robotics, a mobile robotics startup specializing in high-definition maps, three-dimensional LiDAR, and deep learning.

Pittsburgh-based Seegrid said the move would help accelerate next-generation perception and more human-like, situational awareness for its vehicles in manufacturing, distribution, and e-commerce fulfillment facilities that have seen rising demand for automation during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the companies said that Box Robotics co-founders Tom Panzarella and John Spletzer will now lead Seegrid’s perception engineering team. Philadelphia-based Box Robotics says it focuses on three dimensional (3D) perception autonomy with human-like situational awareness for industrial robots.
