Software Engineer (Autonomous Robot - Perception and Localization)

Software engineer

About the company
Their company develops automatic transfer robots that specialize in automating the transfer work that occurs in distribution centers and manufacturing plants. While the need for automation is increasing due to the shortage of manpower, there are no robots that meet the needs of the workplace, and the automation of transportation work is not progressing globally. They are developing the world's first hybrid transfer robot that incorporates both autonomous and trajectory functions into a single system, and are aiming to spread this technology not only in the Japanese market but also globally.

Their product:
■Development of Hybrid Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV) Software
Their product is a next-generation robotics software that hybridizes the "autonomous driving function" based on automated driving technology and the "trajectory function" used in conventional automatic guided vehicles (AGVs). This is the next generation of robotics software that hybridizes the "autonomous driving function" based on AGVs and the "trajectory function" used in conventional AGVs.

■Development of small yet powerful hardware that can tow up to 500kg in a 60cm x 60cm size
To meet the needs of logistics warehouses and manufacturing plants in Japan, we have designed and manufactured a small but powerful robot that can tow up to 500kg. We have also developed in-house a towing mechanism that can automatically coordinate with the objects being transported.

The company is a startup that aims to solve the problems of logistics and manufacturing industries that support Japan's infrastructure, with a vision of "sustainable industry and sustainable living."

Currently, they are developing an automated transport robot that specializes in "inter-process transport" that occurs in logistics centers and manufacturing plants. This automatic transport robot is an unprecedented system that combines autonomous driving and track running functions, and aims to expand globally as well as in the Japanese market.

Since the product announcement in April 2022, the initial batch has already been sold out, and they are currently expanding production and sales. The company is looking for someone who can challenge globally to become the next-generation industrial machinery manufacturer.
