“We are honored to be recognized by DC Inno for our advancements in autonomous vehicle and robotics technologies,” said Alberto Lacaze, president of Robotic Research. “Our objective is to blend robotic engineering, autonomous technology and artificial intelligence to create solutions that help save lives and create greater success for our customer’s missions, whether that mission is to improve efficiency and safety in public transportation or protect the lives of our forces in hostile environments. We are passionate about these goals, and it drives our team to be constantly creating and innovating.”
50 on Fire celebrates Greater Washington innovators, people and organizations across multiple categories. Robotic Research is a leading innovator among autonomous and robotic industries, developing and incorporating autonomous systems into a range of vehicles to improve the safety and efficiency of public transportation and military operations.
Over the past year, Robotic Research has achieved especially remarkable milestones in advancing autonomy in vehicles for public roads as well as off road environments. Through its work with many of the nation’s top innovation leaders in commercial and government organizations, Robotic Research has helped to transform the future landscape of public and freight transportation through groundbreaking advancements in autonomous technology. Highlights of key projects include:
- Olli Shuttles – Robotic Research has embedded its industry-leading AutoDrive® autonomous driving kit in Local Motor’s electric, 3D-printed Olli shuttles to create an environmentally-friendly and convenient option for public and private transportation.
- New Flyer Buses – Robotic Research is working with its partner New Flyer, the leader in American bus manufacturing, to create autonomous buses for public transportation.
- Leader-Follower Program – Robotic Research’s autonomy kit is also integrated with the Autonomous Ground Resupply (AGR) Sustainment Operations program to autonomate trucks to support U.S. Army convoy operations.
Also, earlier this year, Robotic Research unveiled Pegasus™, a first-of-its-kind, transformable unmanned autonomous vehicle to support numerous operations within the Department of Defense as well as applications for commercial industry.
Robotic Research will be formally honored at the DC Inno 50 on Fire Awards dinner on Nov. 21, at The Living Room in Washington, D.C.
