SAN DIEGO — Brain Corp’s fleet of autonomous robots are now covering over 100 billion square feet, giving back approximately 6.8 million hours to employees and operations managers.
“We are thrilled to celebrate reaching 100 billion square feet of coverage with our fleet which represents the square footage of the entire commercial space in the United States,” said Eugene Izhikevich, chief executive officer and founder of Brain Corp. “The milestone represents a clear success of deploying autonomous robots at scale and across multiple industries. As a company committed to continuous improvement, it’s been incredibly gratifying to see such major advances in our fleet’s performance, even as it has been scaled and expanded to operate in multiple new dynamic public environments across the world.”
From Oct. 1, 2020, to Oct. 1, 2021, usage of automated robotics increased across a number of industry sectors with several seeing dramatic year-over-year growth. Increases in square feet covered autonomously within sectors include:
Creating AI software to power autonomous robots operating in new, varying environments requires advanced software and sensors that ensure high levels of performance and safety, all while prioritizing security and data protection. BrainOS-powered robots align with all applicable privacy regulations, processing data exclusively for navigation and operational support without any additional data sources which could identify a natural person.
“As we’ve expanded our fleet size, our focus has always been on safely operating in a variety of different environments,” said Sean Felker, lead functional safety engineer. “Reaching 100 billion square feet of autonomous coverage is validation that this focus is paying off. We have always been committed to helping customers become more efficient in their operations, and it's a testament to our skilled teams that this is being successfully achieved while prioritizing safety and privacy.”
