Background of Company
The term 'service robot' is defined as a semi or fully autonomous robot especially designed for automation of commercial tasks. Current service robots are undergoing a rapid proliferation in capabilities – driven by innovations in machine learning, artificial intelligence, adaptive computing and vision systems –which is causing the market value to almost triple. The combined market value from 2019 to 2021 for professional service robots is estimated to be worth $37 Billion, according to the International Federation of Robotics World Robotics 2018 Service Robots report. This is to be expected as our service robots will be able to do more as Industrial Revolution 4.0 carries on. This is what we as a company specialise in.
Robopreneur Sdn Bhd (RSB) is a fast-growing service robotics company based in Malaysia, providing service robotics products and solutions for professional and domestic use. Established in 2015 as a start-up company developing humanoid robot applications for Autism children, Robopreneur is now expanding as a fully realised robotics company based in Cyberjaya. Our business has three main pillars; Service Robotics & Product Innovation, Software and AI, and Additive Manufacturing. And our business segments covers education, healthcare, service & hospitality, oil & gas, smart living and agriculture.
At Robopreneur our team consists of highly skilled talents with a strong focus on R&D in robotics technology and innovation. We are not limited to only application development but we are also capable of building robots for commercialisation purposes. Our anthropomorphic Robot ADAM, Education Robot Kit ROOKIE, RoboALPR and UGV platform FIELDER are among original products designed and developed at Robopreneur. And as a result of the company’s strong initiative to build commercial robots that empower humanity, Robopreneur has been awarded with the undertaking of a national project: the development of Malaysia’s first humanoid robot ADAM in 2018.
As a company, Robopreneur has set up a clear goal to become the leader of service robotics in Malaysia and one of the Top 5 service robotics company in the ASEAN region. We are also positioning ourselves as a gateway to global robotics business especially in Middle-East and OIC countries. With leading global partners like Softbank Robotics, Kinova Robotics and MJI, we are instilling change in the business ecosystem and generating business opportunities for local talents, industries, investors and experts to be a part of Robopreneur's endeavours.
