Proven Experience. Customizable Solutions.
Autonomy that Outlasts.
What began as a small team of former NIST scientists specializing in the development of solutions to meet the unique needs of our armed forces, Robotic Research has grown into a household name in commercial and government autonomous operations.
1st company DoD-approved to operate autonomously around pedestrians.
1st wartime deployments of unmanned systems.
1st unmanned autonomous trucks delivered for Army logistics applications.
1st prototype SAE Level-4 transit bus.
1st automated heavy-duty mass transit bus used in revenue service.
What Drives Us.
Our vision is to enhance your world in motion. Our mission is to pioneer advanced autonomy and intelligence systems through unrelenting curiosity, proven experience, and exhaustive dedication to mission success.
Award-winning NIST scientists formed Robotic Research with forward-movement in mind. Nearly 20 years later, that vision has transformed government and commercial autonomous operations.
Our customers face unique challenges. Those challenges need custom solutions. Robotic Research in known for creating custom solutions that require minimal infrastructure and support.
At our heart, we’re inventors who are driven to answer the world’s most complex problems. This passion for innovation has led to over 80 penned patents – and counting. We are here to dream, design, and build.
