Adlatus Robotics

In vielen Bereichen lässt der Fach- und Arbeitskräftemangel die Nachfrage nach der Automatisierung von Prozessen wachsen. So auch im Bereich des Facility Managements, in dem sich seit der Pandemie zudem der Anspruch an eine hohe Reinigungsqualität und Sauberkeit stark erhöht hat.

Das junge Unternehmen ADLATUS Robotics GmbH nimmt sich diesen Herausforderungen an und entwickelt und produziert am Standort Ulm, autonome Servicerobotersysteme für den professionellen Reinigungsbereich. ADLATUS wurde 2015 von den Robotik Spezialisten Matthias Strobel und Dr. Siegfried Hochdorfer gegründet und hat sich in den letzten Jahren von einem Startup zu einem jungen und dynamischen Unternehmen entwickelt. Die Navigationssoftware, als Herzstück der Robotersysteme, wird eigens von ADLATUS Robotics entwickelt und macht das Unternehmen flexibel bei der Umsetzung neuer Ideen und Kundenanforderungen.

Neben voller Autonomie, Konnektivität und hoher Sicherheitsperformance setzt das Unternehmen mit ihrer Trusted Robotics Plattform den Schwerpunkt bei der Entwicklung ihrer Robotersysteme auf den Datenschutz und die Datensicherheit ihrer Anwender und entspricht damit den Europäischen Datenschutzrichtlinien.

Das Unternehmen hat sich in der professionellen Reinigungsbranche als Innovationsführer für Serviceroboter etabliert und wurde in den letzten Jahren mit mehreren Awards für die Leistungen des Teams belohnt. Ihre Robotersysteme sind international in den unterschiedlichen Branchen, wie Industrie, Logistikzentren, Sporthallen, öffentlichen Bereichen, Einkaufscenter, Öffentlichen Personenverkehr, Kliniken sowie in anderen Anwendungen im Einsatz.

Als nächster Schritte steht der Ausbau der Internationalisierung in Europa und USA an. Sowie die Erweiterung des Produktportfolios „Service Roboter“ und digitale Tools und die Ausweitung von Cloud-Diensten, die zukünftig „Robot-as-a-Service“ Geschäftsmodelle ermöglichen.

Spinning-off from the LASA (Learning Algorithms & Systems Laboratory) of EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), the company aims to make robotics accessible to all companies. Its technology combines reinforcement learning and closed-loop force control, giving robots a sense of touch and the ability to learn and adapt autonomously to changes. Among other things, this gives manufacturers more flexibility and autonomy, allowing them to automate their manufacturing process in an affordable way. In addition, on-site production employees can now operate the robots without the need for advanced robotic expertise.

BOX ID Systems

BOX ID Systems GmbH focuses on cross-location tracking and identification technology for supply chains. The company thus takes up the growing demands of its customers from the automotive sector and other manufacturing industries and consistently implements them in its product portfolio. BOX ID is known for its networked tracking sensors, which can be located anywhere and create a digital image of the entire supply chain using an intelligent software platform. Whether in closed rooms or on the road, goods and containers can be tracked throughout Europe thanks to BOX ID Systems. The "smart" tags can also be used to record locations on company premises and in buildings with zone accuracy. This is made possible by a new version of the intelligent BOX ID software, which uses the data from thousands of LPWAN tracking sensors for data acquisition, integrates them and merges them with the customer's data sources. The handling of the software itself is just as smooth: simple usability, universal programming interfaces (APIs) as well as a clear web interface support end-to-end processes without much effort for roll-out or training. Numerous companies from industry, automotive manufacturing and logistics are therefore already among the customers of the innovative logistics digitizers from Munich.
