Intel Invests into Development of Humanoid Robots.

Intel Capital, an investment organization that belongs to Intel Corp. has made its first robotics industry investment, leading a $13 million investment in Aldebaran Robotics. The funding from Intel Capital will play a key role in allowing Aldebaran to develop its product offering into additional vertical sectors such as health and social care. “Robotics is an area that Intel Capital has been interested in for some time. Aldebaran’s work in areas such as voice interaction and video analytics really highlights the advances made in perceptual computing and has the potential to offer innovative products and solutions across a range of sectors," said Marcos Battisti, managing director of Intel Capital in Western Europe and Israel. The company currently manufactures and sells advanced, programmable humanoid robots focused on the education, personal services and research markets. Its products combine a range of facial and voice recognition technologies with location awareness capabilities, providing a flexible platform for application development. The investment from Intel Capiral and other partners will also help Aldebaran streamline its production operations and increase its research and development capabilities.

ResinDek® Panels, The Flooring Solution for Robotic Platforms

We know that the durability and condition of floors are important for optimal performance of AGV's and AMR's. Coefficient of friction, surface roughness, floor flatness, gloss, and wear can all affect the ability of robots to run at their peak performance. That's why we go to great lengths to extensively test internally and send our products to be evaluated by independent laboratories as well as the robotic manufacturers. In addition, we can customize the finish for any specification required.
