Cobalt Robotics offers robots as a service for security and facilities management, and has successfully merged hardware, software, people and data to transform enterprise operations. The company’s autonomous indoor robots, remotely managed through the Cobalt Security Operations Center, are an innovative solution that addresses important operational issues -- consistently and accurately.
Marrying the benefits of robotics with the unique capabilities of humans means creating something that is greater than the sum of its parts. The reliability of robots for tasks that require unwavering attention or precise repetition is unmatched. When you expand the capabilities of a robot by integrating its work with that of a human for flexible decision-making, you're enabling a greater level of effectiveness for roles that are more than just the dirty, dull or dangerous. Cobalt lets the robots to do the dull part - tirelessly patrol in search of water leaks, and save the interesting response to a human.
The company was created after its co-founders, Dr. Travis Deyle and Erik Schluntz, decided to start by talking to a number of companies across several industries, looking to find a real-world problem to focus on, instead of coming up with an idea in a vacuum. The opportunity that emerged - security robots - was so compelling that they were immediately inspired to bring it to life. Just 12 months later, Cobalt went from a white-board session to paid robot deployments on customer sites in April 2017.
Today, the company has a number of fortune 500 clients in the finance and technology industries, like Yelp and Slack. Cobalt currently operates throughout the domestic U.S. and is proud to be backed by prestigious, world-class investors (Sequoia, Bloomberg Beta and more).
