  • Sector: Infrastructure
  • Date: July 14, 2020

  • Company: 1X Technologies’ mission is to create the first mass producible humanoid robot platform that provide services to further the well-being of mankind.

Halodi Robotics and LYRO Robotics, a leading robotics company based in Australia have announced their agreement to develop a retail robot demonstrator.

The system will use Halodi Robotics’ EVE robot platform, combined with LYRO Machine Intelligence, the AI, vision, and picking technology developed by LYRO Robotics that helped them win the Amazon Robotics Challenge in 2017.

The demonstrator is to be developed at both companies’ locations to demonstrate in-store picking, order fulfillment and restocking of goods in real stores with no infrastructure modification needed. The joint effort intends to show the feasibility of deploying large fleets of robots in retail to improve efficiency, customer experience, and to build more resilient business models in a time where social interaction is challenging.

We are very excited to bring LYRO Machine Intelligence to Halodi Robotics EVE robot said Dr. Jürgen Leitner, CEO at LYRO Robotics. LYRO Machine Intelligence is based on more than a decade of our research into machine learning, robotic vision and grasping. Our system enables any robot to pick and pack the diverse range of items seen in the retail sector, Leitner added.
