On this podcast, Steve Crowe and Mike Oitzman communicate with Jorgen Pedersen, president and CEO of RE2 Robotics, and Travis Schneider, enterprise growth supervisor of RE2 Robotics. We mentioned the evolution of the corporate, which was based in 2001. RE2 was targeted almost 100% on protection work in 2016, however now the protection sector accounts for lower than one-third of its enterprise.
We additionally mentioned RE2 Robotics’ new Sapien line of clever robotic arms that launched earlier this week. The arms, which had been initially engineered for the rugged necessities of the U.S. army, can function in each structured and unstructured environments, together with open air in harsh climate and in constrained indoor settings like working rooms. The arms function excessive strength-to-weight ratios, exact management, and dexterity that matches or exceeds the efficiency of human arms.
Crowe and Oitzman additionally recap among the week’s prime tales, together with a resurfaced video that reveals a self-driving automobile developed by a professor in South Korea again in 1995. The Ingenuity Helicopter achieved a few milestones this week because it gears up for the primary tried flight on one other planet. We additionally hit on Sarcos Robotics saying that it’s going to go public by way of SPAC and a new heavy-duty autonomous cellular robotic from Otto Motors.
