SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 21, 2020 — (PRNewswire) —

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ADLINK Technology Inc., a global leader in edge computing with a mission to affect positive change in society and industry by connecting people, places and things with AI, today announced its strategic investment in Rover Robotics, a fast-growing robotics company headquartered in Wayzata, Minnesota. This stake of ownership by ADLINK includes financial resources, engineering expertise and technical knowledge. By joining forces together on ROS2 products based on Data Distribution Service (DDS) and industrial robotic controllers, the two companies seek to expand their reach and impact in robotics and industrial automation.

"ADLINK's strategic investment in Rover Robotics represents the company's innovative growth in the robotics market into 2021 and beyond," said Elizabeth Campbell, general manager of ADLINK Technology, Americas division. "We look forward to future technological advancements and diversifying our product offerings beyond traditional robotics platforms, hardware and open source software."

"Given our commitment to embedded technologies, this partnership allows us to further enhance our ruggedized product offerings beyond the military and defense sectors," said Jeff Munch, CTO of ADLINK Technology, who will also join the Board of Directors of the company. "The integration of Rover Robotics' technology into ADLINK industrial robotic controllers will allow us to increase our market presence with autonomous mobile robots."

Rover Robotics is bringing its rugged robotics designs into sectors that have historically been priced out of using robots such as the delivery market and retail inspection markets. By lowering the cost per system to under $2,000 and making the platform developer friendly it allows anyone with a credit card and python experience to get into these markets. The strategic partnership with ADLINK ensures that the Rover Robotics hardware and software can keep up with the rapid pace of progress being made by silicon manufacturers.

"We are pleased to be working with ADLINK Technology, and thank them for their partnership and investment in Rover Robotics," said Nick Fragale, co-founder and CEO of Rover Robotics. "We look forward to collaborating on joint solutions and expanding our product portfolio."

Summary:

  • ADLINK Technology is participating in a super seed round of investment with Rover Robotics, including seed funding and engineering resources
  • This investment allows the two companies to collaborate together on future autonomous robotics applications, including the ROS2 platform and ruggedized industrial automation controllers
  • Jeff Munch, Chief Technology Officer of ADLINK, will also join the Board of Directors of Rover Robotics
