SICK partners with MassRobotics to assist robotics start-ups

SICK has announced a partnership with start-up incubator company MassRobotics. With this partnership, local and global robotics start-ups and corporations will have better access to sensor and safety solutions from SICK.

MassRobotics is a non-profit organisation located in Boston. After seeing the massive growth in the robotics and automation industry, MassRobotics was created to provide an innovation hub and start-up cluster focused on the needs of the robotics community. The organisation works to foster a collaborative space to inspire the next generation of robotics and automation innovators and builders.

“We are very excited to have SICK joining our rapidly growing group of strategic partners,” said Fady Saad, co-founder and Director of Partnerships at MassRobotics. “We believe that a world-leading company like SICK has a lot to offer to our start-ups, especially ones innovating in the mobile robots space.”

The mission of MassRobotics is to help create the next generation of successful robotics and automation companies by providing work spaces and resources needed to develop, prototype, test and commercialise products and solutions.

“We are excited to partner with MassRobotics and help robotics and automation start-ups get better access to innovative sensor solutions,” said Tony Peet, CEO at SICK, Inc. “Our expansive applications and solutions experience, coupled with our deep knowledge in robotic safety requirements, will assist these companies to quickly gain traction and grow.”

SICK is a manufacturer of sensor technology in the field of robotics. LiDAR technology from SICK can be used for robotics safety and navigation, and machine vision systems are used for robotics perception and end-of-arm tooling.

With SICK’s product range, up-and-coming robotics and automation start-ups will gain better access to sensor technology needed to help their machines operate efficiently and safely.
