Seegrid Named #4 Most Innovative Robotics Company in the World by Fast Company
Leading Autonomous Mobile Robot Provider Recognized for Transforming the Global Supply Chain with Intelligent Automation Solutions
Seegrid Corporation, the leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for material handling, has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2022, placing #4 globally in the robotics category. The publication assembles the annual list to honor businesses that are thriving in today’s ever-changing world and making the biggest impact on their industries and culture. Serving the world’s largest manufacturing, e-commerce, and logistics brands, Seegrid was recognized by Fast Company for its industry-defining approach to delivering complete, connected material handling automation solutions.
Seegrid’s innovative autonomy technology, Seegrid IQ, fuses data from cameras, LiDAR, and machine learning models with the company’s proprietary 3D computer vision system. This proprietary technology collects a high density of information, then prioritizes and filters the data to enable mobile robots with a human-like understanding of industrial environments. Seegrid IQ enables Seegrid Palion™ AMR models to safely move thousands of pounds of material while working collaboratively alongside humans.
“I am incredibly proud of Seegrid’s collective ability to solve complex material handling challenges,” said Jim Rock, Chief Executive Officer at Seegrid. “We’re committed to delivering mobile automation solutions that safely bring transformational change to the world’s supply chain.”
Fast Company’s editors sought out the most groundbreaking businesses across the globe and industries. In the last year, Seegrid introduced three new AMR models, launched Fleet Geek™ analytics software, and invested millions into new equipment and tools to help drive its research and development initiatives. Seegrid earned recognition as the #1 AMR provider in the US and #1 market leader in tow tractor AMRs worldwide from Interact Analysis, an international market research authority for the supply chain automation industry. The company’s Palion AMR fleet has driven seven million autonomous miles in customer production environments without a single safety incident.
Fast Company selects businesses who are creating the future today with some of the most inspiring accomplishments of the 21st century. Of this same mindset, Seegrid continuously advances its breakthrough robotics technology pioneered by world-renowned roboticist Dr. Hans Moravec, the company’s founder and Chief Roboticist. Blue Labs, a dedicated in-house research group of world-class automation experts, many with Ph.D. level expertise in robotics and computer vision systems, is solely focused on the rapid advancement of mobile automation technologies. One such advancement includes the company’s first autonomous lift truck, Seegrid Palion Lift AMR, set to be unveiled this month at MODEX, the largest manufacturing and supply chain trade event.
As part of its commitment to ensuring all customers realize the full benefits of automation, Seegrid offers its customers options to purchase equipment outright, as well as various leasing and subscription models.
“The world’s most innovative companies play an essential role in addressing the most pressing issues facing society, whether they’re fighting climate change by spurring decarbonization efforts, ameliorating the strain on supply chains, or helping us reconnect with one another over shared passions,” said Fast Company Deputy Editor David Lidsky.
