Autonomous Solutions, Inc. Elected to the 2015 RBR50 Robotics Watch List

For the second consecutive year, Autonomous Solutions, Inc. was recognized by the Robotics Business Review as one of the Top 50 robotics companies to watch in the 2015 RBR50.

Framingham, MA February 16, 2015


Robotics Business Review (RBR) unveiled its fourth annual RBR50 list, naming Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI) as one of the most noteworthy companies in the global robotics industry for the second consecutive year.

With new companies entering the industry each year, the robotics field is becoming increasingly competitive. Of those companies, the RBR50 list outlines those that should be kept on the business and investment radar. RBR50 companies are recognized based on their innovation, groundbreaking application(s), commercial success and potential, and represent many different levels and facets of the robotics ecosystem.

"We're honored to be included on the RBR50 for the second straight year," said Mel Torrie, President and CEO of ASI. "Being included on this list shows that the members of the robotics community recognize the significant contribution that ASI has made and is making to the industry."

The RBR50 list is an international compilation that spans eleven countries. The list includes large conglomerates but also represents lesser-known startups which make up 20% of the list.

The RBR50 list is dynamic, with robotics companies entering and leaving on an annual basis. Thus, the list is an indication of where the global robotics industry as a whole is moving.

"2015: Year of the Inflection Point in robotics," said Tom Green, RBR Editor in Chief. "What a great time to be counted among the global best in the fastest rising industry in the world. Once again, the robotics community has done a stellar job in selecting those few to represent all."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
