Re2 robotics’ 2021 year in review

RE2 Robotics, a 2021 RBR50 Robotics Innovation Award winner, shared some thoughts on what it accomplished in 2021. RE2 said some of its technical and operational successes in 2021 included: developing a robot that could be used for self-driving cars. The company also said it had a lot of success in the field of robotics in the past year.

  • Celebrated its 20th anniversary, establishing itself as one of the longest-tenured robotics companies in Pittsburgh.
  • It grew revenue 40% and doubled its staff to more than 100 employees over the past 24 months.
  • Launched the RE2 Sapien line of intelligent robotic arms.
  • Strengthened key strategic partnerships to enable market penetration of our autonomous mobile manipulation solutions for aviation, construction, medical, and underwater applications.
  • Awarded contract with the Department of Energy’s Solar Energy Technology Office (SETO) to develop a system for autonomous solar field construction.
  • Secured its largest Department of Defense award to date: a $9.5 million U.S. Navy contract to develop an underwater robotic system for the autonomous neutralization of underwater mines.
  • Expanded underwater testing capabilities through the construction of a 36,000-gallon tank, which enables the on-site testing of RE2 Sapien Sea Class systems.
  • “Since we founded this company in 2001, our primary mission has been to develop robotic technologies that improve worker safety and productivity,” said Jorgen Pedersen, president and CEO of RE2. “The future of work is changing, driven, in part, by a shortage of skilled workers.”

    History of RE2 Robotics

    RE2 Robotics won an RBR50 Robotics Innovation Award for its Outdoor Autonomous Manipulation of Photovoltaic Panels (O-AMPP) The robotic system can autonomously deliver and install solar modules. The company was focused nearly 100% on defense work in 2016, but now the defense sector accounts for less than one third of its business.
