Autonomous robotics systems

Reimagining engineering, supply and production

Three actions to build resilient operations

Why are smart robots different?

Robotics is no longer science fiction


Of organizations believe that professional or consulting service providers in robotics will be critical or helpful to their success.


Of organizations expect to increase their spend in robotics by up to 5% per year.


Of people will buy AI and applications services by 2024.

Scaled smart robotics delivers value

Address labor shortages

A global pandemic accelerated a decreasing workforce for physical operations. Robots collaborate with personnel to fill the void and meet demand.

Deliver high quality

Smart robots leverage computer vision and machine learning to reduce errors, shifting focus toward complex problems and strategic initiatives.

Drive down costs

With robotics as a service (RaaS), drive down initial capital expenditures (CAPEX) to create value and impact margins immediately.


Improve productivity and efficiencies

A fleet of smart robotic workcells can work together to increase throughput while making operations efficient by realigning the workforce.

Become sustainable

Smart robots continuously improve to reduce waste and energy, helping organizations reach their sustainability objectives.

Improve flexibility and resilience in production

Integrated smart robotic workcells use business and robot data to collaborate and dynamically operate, addressing variability in demand.
