Hi everyone,

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve joined NVIDIA Inception, a program that nurtures startups revolutionizing industries with technological advancements.

At Roboto AI, we’re focused on accelerating the robotics revolution by helping companies to transform, search, and analyze all of their multi-modal sensor data.

Today, exponential amounts of sensor data is being generated by high-frequency cameras, lidars, IMUs and more. This data is crucial to train new algorithms, and find system defects. However, given the volume and complexity of this data, companies often struggle to make use of it and instead find themselves drowning in the flood.

To make matters worse, existing data platforms lack support for sensor data, forcing engineers to fend for themselves. This slows down development in robotics companies and results in a long tail of edge cases that get discovered far too late. At Roboto, we're helping these companies rapidly move from R&D to production with a powerful data engine to search and analyze sensor data faster than ever before.

Our team has been using NVIDIA products in robotics for over a decade now (e.g. TK1, TX1, TX2, CUDA, cuDNN, 1080 Ti), especially while we worked at Amazon Robotics. We’re thrilled to be able to leverage such powerful enabling technologies as a startup now, too.

We plan to use the resources available through NVIDIA Inception, including access to the latest and greatest NVIDIA hardware and software, to train and deploy new models that enable rapid search and retrieval of multi-modal sensor data. Ensuring we have access to state-of-the-art GPUs is critical to accelerating our customer workloads and helping them get the data and analytics they need as quickly as possible.

We’re also particularly excited about NVIDIA’s support for robotics through Isaac ROS, a collection of hardware-accelerated ROS 2 nodes that operate on camera and lidar sensor data.

Stay tuned for more updates on this front!
