RBR | OhmniLabs Touts Robots-as-a-Service Plan for Speedier Development
Monday May 20, 2019
Companies looking to create robots often get bogged down in the challenges of robotics development, and pressures from investors to scale up and get to market quickly often prevent them from looking at other functionality options and other approaches that could help them find new markets. Silicon Valley robotics firm OhmniLabs hopes to change this approach by offering a new robots-as-a-service offering to assist companies with speedier and more flexible robotics component development. The company also named Dr. James Kuffner, CEO at the Toyota Research Institute – Advanced Development (TRI-AD) to its advisory board.
As part of its commitment to accelerating the robotic development process, OhmniLabs aims to leverage its fifth-generation additive manufacturing process and modular robotics hardware and software stack with partners around the world bringing robots to market in record time, the company said. The new Robots-as-a-Service (Raas) offering lets partners focus on market, customers, and sales, while OhmniLabs provides the end-to-end robotics, technology, and production components.
