AddverbRDCenter400x275Addverb Technologies, which develops automation solutions for warehouses and distribution centers, has announced the opening of a new Center of Excellence for Advanced Robotics Research and Development in Fremont, Calif. The center will focus on developing state-of-the-art platforms for autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and automated guided vehicles (AGVs), as well as advanced algorithms for human-machine collaboration and biomedical robotics.

"The new advanced robotics research and development facility will enable us to serve our customers better in the Americas and continue to develop the next generation of robotic technologies."

The 3,000-square-foot center will include a team of engineers focused on developing new products and cutting-edge technologies for the Addverb portfolio, the company said. The center will also create additional opportunities to collaborate with the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), a global trade association for the automated manufacturing and robotics industries. 

"The Silicon Valley is the perfect location for our research and development center as the area is a hub for innovation and technology," said Pattnayak. "We look forward to tapping into the region's vast talent pool of engineers and pioneers in the growing robotics community to contribute to our mission in designing and delivering innovative, efficient, and flexible solutions for customers across different industries."

Addverb said its continued expansion into the U.S. is a key part of the company's growth strategy, and the new facility allows Addverb to provide both onsite and online client support. In addition to its Advanced Robotics Research and Development Center in the Bay area, Addverb also announced the opening of its U.S. headquarters in Irvine, California. The new corporate office in Southern California is home to the company's project management, implementation, sales, marketing, human resources, and customer support functions.
