Innovation Matrix, Inc., a distributor of robotic, motion control and machine vision systems, has announced a partnership with Transcend Robotics of San Francisco, California. This agreement allows Innovation Matrix to exclusively sell and support Transcend’s mobile platform in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Australia.
Transcend Robotics has developed a robotic mobility system called “ARTI” with Articulated Traction Control Technology that quickly traverses over terrain, stairs, and other obstacles without complex controls. This mobile robotic ground solution can be configured for multiple end user applications such as rescue robots and dangerous situations.
With Innovation Matrix’s knowledge in the Trans-Pacific, the partnership will provide Transcend’s robots to robotics researchers in the Pacific Rim region to accelerate research work in robotics. This effort will accelerate development of applications for the outdoor robotics industry.
“We are excited about our partnership with Transcend Robotics," said Eimei Onaga, CEO and founder of Innovation Matrix, Inc. "Through our industrial experience and knowledge of the Asian robotics market, we will be able to provide the best tools and support to our customers to remain competitive in the coming mobile robotics era.”
“We are delighted to have Innovation Matrix and Mr. Onaga representing us in these countries," said Phil Walker, CEO of Transcend Robotics. "Mr. Onaga has over 40 years of experience in robotics business management and engineering, brings extensive experience in selling industrial and service robots in Asia, and speaks fluent Japanese. Innovation Matrix is a strong partner to distribute ARTI technology to Asian markets."
