RobotLAB Proudly Renews Longstanding NAO & Pepper Agreements With United Robotics Group

Partnership Underpinned by Commitment to Innovation Spanning Nearly 15 Years Has Resulted in the Deployment of More Than 7,500 Robots

RobotLAB, the premier robotics integrator that has delivered impactful robotics business innovations and solutions for more than 15 years, has renewed its agreement with United Robotics Group (URG), the new owner of Aldebaran, a former entity of SoftBank Robotics. RobotLAB has been the master distributor for URG's NAO and Pepper robots since 2009, boasting nearly 7,000 and 600 deployments, respectively. The renewed agreement will extend RobotLAB and URG's partnership for the foreseeable future, ensuring NAO and Pepper will be equipped with top tier software and curricula, and sold, integrated, serviced, and repaired via RobotLAB's best-in-class processes - which will be critical as demand for robotics and AI integration grows exponentially.

"RobotLAB is on the cutting-edge of robotics technology, and we're confident in our ability to identify truly innovative products like NAO and Pepper, which are two of the most impressive, game-changing robots available today," said Elad Inbar, founder and CEO of RobotLAB. "We are excited to extend our partnership with the same group of people under the new ownership of URG, as this has been a longstanding and valued alliance fueled by the growing demand for AI-based business efficiencies. Our continued partnership will ensure NAO and Pepper benefit their sectors with intelligent software solutions, full-service deployment, and our own deep knowledge of robotics."

As URG's strategic partner, RobotLAB is the only provider of standard operating procedures, onsite deployment, annual service packages, consultation, learning management systems, curricula and training for Pepper and NAO - as with all robots in RobotLAB's diverse portfolio. RobotLAB has integrated NAO into K-12 schools and universities across the country and is currently deploying more than 150 STEM carts, which include NAO robots, to every public school in American Samoa as part of a landmark edtech deal designed to educate students on robotics and AI developments and reinforce career and college readiness. The company also developed the exclusive NAO AI-Edition, which uses chatbots and other tools to make AI accessible through robots. Providing a myriad of business solutions, Pepper is a versatile customer service robot that can be tailored to meet the needs of banks, hospitals, assisted living centers, cannabis retailers, hotels and more. As labor shortages persist and businesses look for new ways to innovate, Pepper offers a friendly face and versatile programming options that fit businesses of any scale and specialty.

"We are thrilled to continue our longstanding partnership with RobotLAB, a company that shares our vision of advancing robotics technology in various sectors," said Jason Panella, VP Education at United Robotics Group. "RobotLAB's extensive experience in distributing and supporting robotic solutions makes the company an ideal partner. This collaboration will allow us to continue bringing our innovative products to a wider range of customers, thus accelerating the adoption of delivery robots in education and business sectors."

For more than 15 years, RobotLAB has provided turnkey robotics solutions to companies of all sizes in industries including foodservice, hospitality, banking, education, assisted living, education, cleaning, delivery and hospitals. The company's talented team of roboticists has effectively deployed more than 10,000 robots that have provided an impressive array of businesses with a clear path to the successful and highly specialized integration of robotics solutions. RobotLAB oversees all aspects of the robotics integration process - from sales, tailored programming, onsite integration and repairs - to ensure businesses can access and understand solutions that will dramatically improve their performance.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
