No-Touch Robotics enables Contactless Micro-Handling

Cover-1-Advanced-Robotics-2022-Startups-StartUs-Insights-noresizeFounding Year: 2020
Location: Zurich, Switzerland
Funding: USD 11 000
Partner for: Contactless Robotic Gripper
Industries: BioTech, Pharma, Semiconductor Manufacturing

No-Touch Robotics is a Swiss startup that provides a contactless micro-handling solution for pharma, micromechanics, and semiconductor industries. The startup’s robotic gripper leverages ultrasound waves to generate a pressure field that levitates objects in an acoustic trap, floating them freely in the air. Moreover, the gripper handles objects of various shapes and supports fine positioning with micrometer accuracy. Conventional grippers are inefficient in handling small and fragile components, which makes automation a challenging task. On the other hand, No-Touch Robotics’ solution enables manufacturing units to automate component handling without causing damage or contamination.

AISPRID facilitates Soft Fruit Picking

Founding Year: 2020
Location: Saint-Malo, France
Funding: USD 5,5 M
Partner for: Fruit Inspection
Industry: AgriTech

French startup AISPRID automates soft fruit picking. The startup’s autonomous robot, Harvy, harvests and inspects fragile fruits and vegetables like strawberries and tomatoes. Harvey is available as a subscription service with volume billing. Unlike paddy and wheat fields that use heavy machinery for harvest automation, the soft fruit sector is unable to integrate robotics due to the delicate nature and lack of uniformity of the harvest. AISPRID’s solution tackles this issue and allows horticulturalists to compensate for the labor shortage in the industry. At the same time, Harvy provides decision support for insect and disease detection as well as yield optimization, improving efficiency and profits.

Haul Automation advances Intralogistics Automation

Cover-3-Advanced-Robotics-2022-Startups-StartUs-Insights-noresizeFounding Year: 2020
Location: Hyderabad, India
Partner for: Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)
Industries: Industry 4.0, Logistics, Retail

Indian startup Haul Automation provides intralogistics automation for the manufacturing, logistics, and retail industries. The startup’s autonomous mobile robots combine obstacle avoidance and anti-collision systems to move crates, bins, barrels, and racks. They integrate into an existing layout to take over material handling from manual labor. Haul-i delivers inventory at manufacturing and warehouse floors whereas Shop-i is for retail stores and Hawk-i is tailored for surveillance and reconnaissance missions. Unlike manual systems, Haul Automation’s AMRs adapt to 24×7 schedules and require a much lesser footprint, minimizing accidents on the floor. As a result, inventory management teams are able to achieve high throughput and improved robustness along with the reduction in cycle time and labor costs.

Climate Robotics boosts Carbon Sequestration

Founding Year: 2020
Location: New York, US
Funding: USD 100 000
Partner for: Biochar Production
Industries: Climate Change, Sustainability

Climate Robotics is a US-based startup that builds Pyrobots, robots for carbon sequestration. Pyrobots are on-site biochar generation systems that use agricultural waste as feedstock. Applying biochar in soil boosts nutrient and water retention as well as permanently sequesters the excess atmospheric carbon that causes climate change. Since soil is an efficient sink for carbon, this process also allows industries to reduce their carbon footprint until more economical carbon-free energy sources are available.

Inrobics provides Play-based Therapies

Founding Year: 2020
Location: Madrid, Spain
Funding: USD 96 000
Partner for: Social Robots
Industry: Healthcare

Spanish startup Inrobics offers play-based rehabilitation therapies for functional and neurological disorders. The startup combines AI and social robots to develop novel rehabilitation models. The robot’s high-degree autonomy enables in-home rehabilitation to complement regular therapies while improving patient engagement. Conventionally, lack of rehabilitation at home hinders the overall treatment of such diseases. With Inrobics’ solution, families and therapists are able to reinforce therapies. The startup’s cloud-based platform also tracks and monitors the movement of patients to provide real-time insights into user condition and progress.
