Current Startups

Adlatus Robotics

Das Start-up ADLATUS Robotics adressiert den neuen, rasant wachsenden Markt der professionellen Servicerobotik mit innovativen Produkten wie dem Reinigungsroboter CR700.

Ob es um die Reinigung von Großmärkten, die Rasenpflege oder Security geht: Service-Roboter wie der Reinigungsroboter CR700 von ADLATUS Robotics übernehmen immer mehr Aufgaben autonom oder in Kooperation mit Menschen. Damit sparen Firmen im Bereich des Facility Managements, aber auch Endkunden aus Industrie und Handel, Kosten. Es kommt hinzu: Oft fehlt qualifiziertes Personal, die Sicherheitsanforderungen sind hoch, das Personal wechselt häufig und die Arbeitsbedingungen sind belastend und gefährlich.

Der Service-Roboter CR700 soll in Frühjahr 2017 am Markt eingeführt werden und reinigt autonom und selbständig auch größere Flächen. Das Gerät ist vielfältig vernetzt und kann ideal im täglichen Betrieb eingesetzt werden. Zielgruppe sind Facility Management Unternehmen, die die Reinigung im Auftrag der Endkunden durchführen, aber auch Kunden aus Industrie und Handel, die ihre Objekte in Eigenverantwortung reinigen.

Das Geschäftsmodell des Unternehmens ist es, die Entwicklung, die Produktion, Vermarktung, Vertrieb und Service dieser professionellen Roboter-Produkte eigenständig und wo immer notwendig und sinnvoll in Zusammenarbeit mit Kooperationspartnern umzusetzen.

R3DT provides the most user-friendly virtual reality tool for industrial engineers who want to avoid mistakes in the early planning phase. The VR tool is of interest for design review and approval, e.g. for planning of work and assembly, in product development, in special-purpose machine and plant engineering as well as in technical sales.

With the VR tool, anyone can generate virtual prototypes from 3D CAD models at the push of a button. Thanks to intuitive handling, the models can be experienced in 1:1 scale anytime - also for colleagues and business partners. Consequently, critical design reviews can be carried out together - quickly and anywhere. Elaborate mockups and real prototypes become redundant. All in all, companies save a lot of time and money.
