Robotics today is a fast growing industry with applications in myriad markets, including retail, transportation, manufacturing, and even as personal assistants. Fellow Robots is at the forefront of reimagining these uses for the best retail experience – to improve your experience when shopping and to help employees with the most up to date information on inventory and location of goods and services.
When most think about robots, we might think R2D2 and C3PO from Star Wars. But is this reality or science fiction? What if we could have a buddy to help guide us in the right direction, answer the difficult questions, help us make smart decisions? With a diverse team of experts in AI, robotics, software, design and manufacturing, Fellow Robots is working closely with its partners to build the next generation of smart retail robots – which will improve the lives of all of us.
We are a multidisciplinary young team from different backgrounds, ranging from robotic, software wizards and data scientists to designers and business experts. We have built many platforms including telepresence robots, humanoid robots, sensors, cloud computing and more cutting edge technology platforms. We came out of SU Labs at Singularity University at NASA Research Park in Silicon Valley. SU Labs connects corporate innovation teams with startups and other organizations to explore exponentially accelerating technologies and create new sustainable business solutions. What distinguishes Fellow Robots is the ability to partner and work shoulder to shoulder with customers to learn how robotics can improve their retail needs.
