Seegrid Corp. today announced the creation of its Blue Labs internal research and development group. The Pittsburgh-based robotics supplier said it expects the group to build on its proprietary, artificial intelligence to accelerate its expansion in the manufacturing, warehousing, and logistics sectors.
Seegrid provides autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), Fleet Geek and Supervisor software, and services for connected materials handling automation. It also offers product design, deployment, change management, user training, and data consultation services.
Seegrid claimed that it has been a technology innovator since its founding by roboticist Hans Moravec, the company’s chief scientist. The company said its Palion AMRs, which combine data from 3D lidar, stereoscopic cameras, and other sensors, have driven more than 5 million production miles without personnel safety incidents.
The company said it can help businesses in the supply chain network remain agile while ensuring that flow of goods is both steady and safe. Some of the biggest brands in the world use its systems to fill labor shortages, increase throughput, and improve overall material flow, according to Seegrid, which said it has experienced rapid growth and demand.
This year, the company has launched multiple new automated workflows for its fleet of Palion AMRs along with a cloud-based data analytics platform. It has also focused on faster development of new products and rapid expansion of its product offerings.
