Meet our founders

Our founding team has been working at the forefront of robotics and artificial intelligence for the last decade.

From simulation to computer vision, we've worked across the robotics stack but spent most of our time chasing edge cases. Anyone working in robotics knows how hard it is to go from a prototype to a safe and reliable production system.

We think one of the biggest hurdles holding the industry back is a lack of suitable infrastructure for quickly searching multi-modal sensor data and logs. Without a way to query this data efficiently, companies discover system failures too late.

Robotics is hard, but it shouldn't be this hard. We're now on a mission to get robots into production faster, by getting AI to do the dirty work for us! We're excited to have the support of an incredible group of advisors and investors to make it happen.
