The 10 Coolest Robotics Startups Of 2020 (So Far)

RightHand Robotics

Somerville, Mass.-based RightHand Robotics is a developer of robotic piece-picking solutions for order fulfillment and logistics, with the aim of offering improved efficiency and performance. The company’s robotic offerings—which provide advances in both hardware and software—enable picking and placing of individual items, while also being able to work collaboratively with human workers and existing systems. In connection with the coronavirus outbreak, “the volume of both inquiries and customer meetings has increased,” said Vince Martinelli, head of product and marketing at RightHand Robotics, in a message to CRN. “We are seeing interest from customers whose current work process is done with human workers standing close to one another. Having robots handle some of that work allows for spacing between the human workers, enhancing safety and complying with social distancing guidelines.” Notably, the interest is increasingly coming from C-level executives rather than from supply chain teams, he said. “It’s becoming a higher-level strategy consideration as opposed to an operational cost savings measure,” Martinelli said.
