TECHNOLOGY

OUR COMPANY WAS FOUNDED ON THE BELIEF THAT SEVERAL INNOVATIONS ARE GROSSLY UNDERUTILIZED IN INDUSTRY, AND WHEN COMBINED, MUCH GREATER LEAPS IN CAPABILITY ARE POSSIBLE.

THEY ARE THE FOLLOWING

GENERATIVE DESIGN

ENERGY DEPOSITION

SWARM ROBOTICS

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Advances in design technologies, largely due to the arrival of cloud computing services and topology optimization algorithms, have recently allowed designers a true alternative to the traditional design process. Now, a computer can digest a designer's constraints and generate the best possible shape based on the designer's constraints - often with significant weight savings and strength benefits. The resulting shapes of generative design often look alien, as they resemble biological shapes and are far superior than what a human designer could model. This innovation is only recently able to be utilized, due to the introduction of 3D printing - which is often the only method to manufacture these structures. With the enhanced characteristics of a generative model, more features could be packed into a design with less adverse qualities. Rosotics harnesses generative design not as an afterthought, but as the first thought, in order to supercharge an industrial revolution that is already in full swing.

While the most widely used method of metal printing, powder bed fusion, is effective, it compromises on many aspects - including limiting the size of a print to the size of a heavily restrained build container. Other, less known methods attempt to overcome this boundary, yet a new method known as directed energy deposition truly was able to defeat it by conducting the entire print process from a robotic arm. In the DED process, material is deposited in a wire form and melted into a pool by a high power laser. Upon cooling, we are able to produce a part of extreme size, limited only by the reach of the robotic arm. This can be expanded by using very large industrial arms, but is still limited in size by this hardware. Rosotics takes this process and builds upon it, developing a method known as the Swarm-Entwined Energy Deposition (SEED), which miniaturizes and mobilizes the process to the greatest extent possible. We conduct the SEED process from an airborne platform, allowing virtually unlimited scale to be achieved.

Rosotics has developed an entire autonomous drone platform, leveraging new capabilities in 5G, which employs significant process methodologies in swarm robotics. We believe in order to extend the manufacturing industry into a new generation, nature should be our teacher. We examined how nature works to produce, how bees and ants are able to build structures much larger than themselves efficiently - and found the answer is consistently in distributing the process. In investigating and harnessing the unique field of swarm robotics, working hand in hand with original pioneers of the field, we have proven its results to be fundamentally promising. Our platform sets a new bar in applied robotic intelligence, and is able to collaborate in large numbers to complete a common task. In addition, we have seen aerial maneuvers in a collaborative sense to in some cases improve the print performance, or help to produce geometries that would be otherwise unattainable from any other sort of airborne platform.

The manufacturing industry largely sees machine learning deployed for primitive tasks, such as image recognition or classification, especially in an industrial setting. We have established artificial intelligence not as a form of assistance, but as a foremost pillar of how our manufacturing systems function. We have formed high-profile partnerships within the industry to integrate cutting edge intelligence chipsets into our machines as well as extensive sensory hardware. We have developed in tandem new, exotic, modular neural processing environments, consisting of a plurality of neural networks. This is for the purpose of allowing our platform to function fully and completely autonomously, and to allow it to analyze and refine print performance in real-time. Designed in the same light as a self-driving vehicle, we are creating drones that are not just excellent at what they do, but personable, adaptable, and enjoyable for the customer to experience. This characteristic is core to our ethos as a company,

ROSOTICS COMPILES EACH OF THESE RECENT ADVANCEMENTS TOGETHER, AND APPLIES THEM INTO A PLATFORM DESIGNED TO SERVE YOU UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU'VE EVER EXPERIENCED.
