Techstars 2023

Automatika Robotics was founded in early 2022 by researchers in robotics, computer vision and AI. The startup, which joined the Techstars 2023 class, uses cutting-edge technologies in perception, navigation and control to provide AI solutions to the challenges of autonomous navigation around people.

Automatika Robotics develops navigation systems for autonomous driving in dense urban centers and spaces shared with pedestrians. The navigation system is adapted and optimized for a wide range of mobile robotics applications, such as delivery robots or autonomous city service robots. Automatika takes a social approach to the navigation task, understanding the scene and the cooperative nature of human path planning, which results in a natural trajectory that avoids any blocking points and ensures the safety and comfort of the agents in the scene.
