Realtime Robotics was founded in March 2016 by Duke University professors Dan Sorin (Computer Architecture), George Konidaris (Robotics & Motion Planning), and top researchers Sean Murray and Will Floyd-Jones, based on their groundbreaking DARPA-funded research in Motion Planning:
Since that time, we have won many projects with Fortune 50 customers proving out the technology, and released our transformative RapidPlan Motion Planning Accelerator and RapidSense Spatial Perception System.
Realtime raised seed funding in 2017, with key investors including Toyota AI Ventures, SPARX Group, a Tokyo-based venture capital firm that works closely with Toyota, and San Francisco based Scrum Ventures. “The technology being developed by Realtime Robotics is game-changing, and we’re proud to be part of this investment through Toyota AI Ventures,” said James Kuffner, TRI’s Advanced Development CEO. “We share Realtime’s commitment to enabling robotic systems to perform complex tasks quicker, safer and more efficiently.”
We’re changing how machines move through unstructured environments – whether on the factory floors or urban streets. Built on next-generation computer processing and innovative software, our collision-free motion planning solution makes it possible for robots, autonomous vehicles and other machines to navigate dynamic environments smoothly, quickly and intuitively.
