Stuttgart, Baden-Wuerttemberg. NODE Robotics today announced it has joined NVIDIA Inception, a program designed to nurture startups revolutionizing industries with advancements in AI and data science.
NODE Robotics offers plug and play software solutions for autonomous intralogistics. Its focus is on driverless transport vehicles and mobile robots, which are turned into multi-vendor, autonomous and collaborative fleets by software solutions. NODE provides the basis for the widespread use of autonomous mobile robots in production and intralogistics.
NVIDIA Inception will allow NODE Robotics to work with industry peers and exchange research. This gives NODE Robotics a huge opportunity to help shape the AI ecosystem. The program will also offer NODE Robotics the chance to collaborate with industry-leading experts and other AI-driven organizations.
Lukas Teichmann, CFO of NODE Robotics, said, “The mobile robotics market is global. However, a majority of mobile robotics companies are located in Europe, while the majority of funding is allocated to American companies. Therefore, joining NVIDIA Inception can help us access a global research platform and be an opportunity to attract American venture capital.”
NVIDIA Inception helps startups during critical stages of product development, prototyping and deployment. Every NVIDIA Inception member gets a custom set of ongoing benefits, such as NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute credits, marketing support and technology assistance, which provides startups with the fundamental tools to help them grow.
About NODE Robotics
Flexibility and autonomy are core requirements for the factory of the future. In the field of intralogistics, Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are the key to meeting these. However, the current patchwork of incompatible and inadequate software solutions for AMRs on the market prevents the spread of this key technology and puts fleet operators further into vendor lock in situations.
NODE.OS, an end-to-end software solution for operating multi-vendor and heterogeneous AMR fleets with high autonomy and minimal commissioning efforts, can be seamlessly integrated into every production plant.
