Robots are one of the most wondrous forms of technology that humans have ever invented, and their potential is limitless. It truly feels like we are living in the future now. We mainly hear about robotics being developed in places like Japan and America – but in the past few years, the Scandinavian country Denmark has actually started to make a name for itself in the industry. As such, today we are going to be looking at some of the most innovative robotics start-ups in Denmark right now. Read on if you’re a robotics enthusiast and want to know more about what the future holds for these autonomous machines.
OnRobot was established in 2015 by Bilge Jacob Christiansen and Ebbe Overgaard Fuglsang. This robotics company has developed a technology called ‘Cobots’ – collaborative robot solutions that make the packaging, assembling, handling, and melding of material more efficient than ever before. The main aim of this Scandinavian start-up was to make robotics more accessible to small or medium-sized manufacturers. OnRobot has achieved this by making the maintenance of machines quicker, easier and cheaper, as robotics repairs usually cost manufacturers millions.
Scape Technologies is revolutionising how businesses are disposing of their industrial waste. This start-up was originally founded in 2005 and since then has been developing solutions for bin-picking. This robotic technology can scan in 3D and find the optimal position to lift a bin. It also has excellent grip and is able to pick up things, no matter how awkwardly they are placed. As such, Scape Technologies has made bin-lifting more efficient than ever before.
Rewired is a venture studio which focuses on artificial intelligence and robotics, creating innovative solutions for humanitarian projects. For example, they are developing bionic arms which will grant limbless individuals with motor function once more. They have also turned their attention to granting robots with taste and smell, which could be used for agricultural industries or food quality control. More recently Tej Kohli has invested through the Rewired investment fund, hoping to empower the company to develop even more global healthcare solutions.
Everyone knows that education is the most important thing in the world. And that’s what the Denmark start-up, Kubo Robot, is helping to facilitate. This company is in the process of developing a system which is designed to teach children how to code. The program will simplify complicated terms and concepts, plus encourage the learner to engage in critical thinking. As we become increasingly reliant on computers, coding is an essential skill for the younger generations to acquire.
Established in 2010 by Flemming Jørgensen, InroTech is a robotics company that aims to provide mobile welding solutions to manufacturers. These robots can be customised to fit whatever job and don’t need any programming – their potential can be unlocked simply by pressing a button.
These are some of the top robotics start-ups in Denmark. We’re excited to see their work implemented across the world.
