CEO: Amar Hanspal
Bright Machines is aiming to improve manufacturing with a software-defined approach to robotics. The San Francisco-based company this year introduced an offering that it's calling Bright Machines Microfactories. The offering is a combination of software, machine learning and computer vision technologies—paired with robotics—that seeks to automate the once-highly manual processes of product assembly and inspection. Key components include the company's Bright Robotic Cells—modular units based on adaptive robotics technology that are ready for production and can be configured to meet specific product manufacturing requirements. The Microfactories announcement follows $179 million in fund-raising last year by Bright Machines, whose CEO Amar Hanspal was formerly the co-CEO of Autodesk.
