RightHand Robotics (RHR) is a leader in providing end-to-end solutions for automated intralogistics.

RightPick is a combined software and hardware solution that handles the core task of picking individual items for e-commerce order fulfillment. With RightPick, businesses can reduce the cost of e-commerce order fulfillment in electronics, apparel, grocery, pharmaceuticals, and many other industries.

Unlike traditional factory robots that can be complex to set up and typically have one purpose, RHR’s solutions are adaptable and simple to integrate. They can improve the utilization of many different customer workflows, such as sorting batch-picked items, picking items from an ASRS, inducting items to a belt sorter, and ensuring order accuracy.

Their mission is to develop and deploy end-to-end solutions that can automatically handle any item.

A key differentiator of the company’s technology is a focus on the “3Rs”: Range of products, Rate of fulfillment, Reliability, which RHR believes are critical to commercial success and how the industry should think about robotic piece-picking.

RHR was founded in 2014 by a DARPA challenge-winning team from the Harvard Biorobotics Lab, the Yale GRAB Lab, and MIT intent on bringing grasping intelligence to bear on real world problems. The company is based in Somerville, MA, with approximately 30 employees.
