Veo Robotics is transforming manufacturing by bringing perception and intelligence to industrial robots. Its technology brings advanced computer vision and 3D sensing to high-performance industrial robots, allowing them to work side-by-side with humans in manufacturing settings. For as long as factories have existed, these powerful machines that reside within them have been caged off, due to the danger they present to human workers. With Veo’s technology, this is no longer the case.
Veo isn’t building robots, rather, they’re building the brains and eyes for industrial robots, giving them the ability to be aware of their surroundings and the people around them. Veo’s technology uses lidar sensors to create real-time maps of factory work spaces, so that robots can slow down or stop completely when human workers get close. When humans can work safely alongside industrial robots in manufacturing facilities, it allows for the simultaneous use of the strength and speed of machines, and the judgment and dexterity of humans. This leads to greater flexibility, productivity, and efficiency in the production process. Veo is solving an important problem for the industrial automation industry. By getting robots out of their cages and enabling them to work with and next to human workers, Veo is opening new opportunities for manufacturers by addressing current trends and changing demands such as increasing mass-customization and the need for more flexible production processes.
