Top Robotics Companies

Top Robotics Companies

You may be thinking to yourself, Boy, is the robotics industry really that robust where it warrants a whole page dedicated just to its companies?

Absolutely it is. And, it’s growing rapidly.

Over the last century, the robotics industry has transformed our society; yet, robotics work isn’t mainstream and most robotics companies aren’t household names.

Robotics refers to the merging of computer science and different fields within engineering to create and use utilitarian robots. And, robotics companies have typically sold B2B products, up until recent years. Most operate in the background of businesses where consumers and customers don’t see their use. For example, in 1961 Ford began using robots on their assembly floors to speed up construction of vehicles, reach places that human arms couldn’t fit and get exact, error-free measurements. Nowadays, robots are making their way onto the frontlines of several industries, not just automobile manufacturing.

Importantly, in addition to increased safety, we enable a much more natural and smooth human-like driving of L4/5 autonomous vehicles. This is essential for autonomous vehicles to be accepted into a human-dominated road environment and also by passengers of robotaxi services. Without this capability autonomous vehicles simply will not function well enough. Perceptive Automata is working with OEMs, suppliers, and tech companies that are building or integrating ADAS and autonomous driving systems. The team is comprised of Harvard, MIT, and Stanford neuroscientists and AI experts working out of offices in Boston and Silicon Valley.

Soft Robotics
Bedford - Soft Robotics opens new markets to automation through the application and commercialization of its proprietary soft robotics technology. The business end of a robotic arm is the gripper. The March 2105 edition of Modern Materials Handling best describes the challenge when they wrote: “Perhaps more than any other element of robotic development in warehousing and distribution, the end-of-arm tooling, or gripper, is the place that can make or break a robot’s success.” Advancing gripper technology is the key to unlocking a new age of automation. An age where they can automate tote pick and pack for grocery distribution, bin picking of soft and delicate parts, e-commerce order fulfillment, fruit harvesting, luggage handling, and consumer goods packaging. The US fresh produce packing market alone represents a $27 billion retail market searching for automation solutions. Soft Robotics has demonstrated the ability to bring robotic product handling and packaging to this market. These are problems of adaptability, complexity, and cost. The search for a more adaptable gripper has driven up the complexity of design to devices like servo grippers and complicated tool changing requirements. This complexity comes at a high price in gripper cost, the need for larger arms, and complex software and hardware integration. Their revolutionary soft robotic technology, covered by more than 40 patents and applications, enables us to design and manufacture soft robotic hands that address the new unstructured world of automation and logistics. Through their propriety knowledge of actuator geometry, material selection, and operating envelope, they can tune actuators to be force limiting with NO CLOSED LOOP FEEDBACK system required. Soft Robotics brings the highest level of adaptability, while lowering system complexity and total system cost. The adaptive nature of their technology allows a single grasper to handle an unprecedented range of objects, regardless of shape, size, or weight, with no tool or software changes between cycles. We’ve demonstrated the ability to grasp bags of rice, raw food, bars of soap, boxes of toothpaste, and clothing all with a single device. But soft does not mean weak. Their technology has the ability to scale from the smallest to the largest task. The result is an automation solution that can pack a tote for retail distribution, pick fruit off the vine, or easily handle a ten pound kettle bell. They have demonstrated the speed and precision necessary to integrate into the factories and warehouses of today and the future, operating at speeds up to 130 picks per minute.Their system is plug and play with the most common industrial robots using industry standard protocols and vision systems.They have designed the system to be “robot and vision agnostic,” allowing the system to quickly and seamlessly integrate with the full range of robots, from small collaborative systems to high speed industrial packing cells. Soft Robotics launched their industrial product at Automate 2015 in March 2015, Their produce handling system in June 2015, and started shipping in June 2015. They are now selling systems to their pilot customers. Soft Robotics is foundational technology that solves the problems of today and unlocks the future of automation.

Largest Robotics Companies

SoftBank Robotics’s acquisition of Boston Dynamics in 2017 from Google set off a flurry of innovations and viral videos depicting robots acting, moving and even dancing shockingly similar to humans. The Waltham, Massachusetts-based robotics company was sold for more than $1 billion in late 2020 to Hyundai to build out their robotics division. Despite its sale to Hyundai, SoftBank still maintains its spot among the top robotics companies in the world with a heavy presence and investing arm in the industry.

Founded in 1990, Boston-headquartered iRobot invented the robot vacuum with which you may be familiar – Roomba. iRobot has leaped to the top of their class thanks to pop culture appearances in Hollywood movies and shows, such as Parks and Recreation. Their focus is on in-home robots to help with cleaning, dusting and other household chores.

Beyond in-home voice-recognition devices, Amazon’s use of robotics extends to their warehouses and in the future, to the skies. Currently, Amazon warehouses utilize robots to organize, transport and package products in a timely, inexpensive way. In now-viral videos, thousands of package-carrying robots zip around warehouses miraculously without running into each other. Soon, Amazon wants FAA approval for drones to deliver packages even faster to their customers than their current two-day response time. By building hundreds of fulfillment centers around the country, Amazon has made their distribution points as close as possible to each customer’s home. Therefore, allowing autonomous drones and other delivery vehicles to make quick deliveries.

But there’s more to the robotics industry than foreign and Silicon Valley giants. Discover the companies making a name for themselves in the Unvalley below.

Function of Robotics in Society

As we dive into more robotics companies in the USA shifting our society, it’s important to understand the main drivers for the introduction of robots into everyday life.

First, when considering robotics’ impact on manufacturing, it’s challenging to argue against the economic and efficiency benefits that corporations see. Companies are able to construct goods much faster, much safer and at a much lower cost than in previous generations with solely human work. An added bonus – and a consequence of robotics – to these corporations is that they don’t need as many humans to operate these machines in their shops, meaning fewer jobs for workers.

Second, as pictured in comics, cartoons and movies a century ago, robots help humans by reducing strain, stress and work. For example, what was previously unknowable information, you now have access to it with a simple question asked to your Amazon Alexa sitting on the kitchen counter. Robot vacuums and other cleaning devices have reduced the need for hiring outside workers to manage homes. And, autopilot lawn mowers and snow plows keep things tidy around the house, making for a presentable appearance for the neighborhood. The benefit to home life is immeasurable.
