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.
“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.”
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.
