RightHand Robotics Inc builds a data-driven intelligent picking platform, providing flexible and scalable automation for predictable order fulfillment. RightPick, our robotic piece-picking solution, enables retailers to rise up to the new realities of online commerce.
RightHand Robotics Inc was founded in 2015 by a DARPA challenge-winning team from the Harvard Biorobotics Lab, the Yale GRAB Lab, and MIT. Our founders learned from that competition that you can make a capable robotic gripper by combining a compliant smart mechanism and sensing that could improve through practical experience. But it’s not enough to just build cool technology. You make a difference when you fix customer problems. So we started RightHand Robotics to focus on solving the “holy grail” of warehouse automation: piece-picking for supply chain and e-commerce fulfillment. We took the grasping knowhow, combined it with computer vision and AI, and spoke to over a hundred end-users across a dozen industry verticals to gauge market appetite and define use cases. It quickly became clear that the demand for such a piece-picking machine was real and growing. In just a few short years, our company has assembled a world class team that’s committed to our mission and vision. We launched our autonomous robotic piece-picking product in 2017, developed key partnerships in Europe, Japan, and the U.S. and deployed fleets of robots for customers around the world. Tens of millions of picks into our journey, we continue to learn every day...as do our robots.
