About The Robot Report

Founded in 2008, The Robot Report is the first internet publication tracking the business of the robotics industry and the future of robotics, with an eye towards investment information on publicly-traded and privately-owned robotics businesses. The Robot Report researches companies and technology all over the world, gathering industry news to track the business of robotics, and has developed proprietary (Robo-Stox™) methods to report and compare on robot industry stock performance to the NASDAQ Composite Index. The Robot Report has a comprehensive worldwide database of public and private companies in the robotics industry, split into two segments: publicly traded stocks and privately-owned companies, and further sliced into the five robotic groupings shown in the directory pages. The Robot Report links to the Everything-Robotic blog for periodic in-depth personal insights from The Robot Report's Editor and Publisher, Frank Tobe.
