Summary

Summary: 
UK company developing 3D imaging solutions for healthcare, education and energy markets is looking for international partners and collaborators to help bring their robotics systems to market, particularly an indoor, airborne robotic assistant. Cooperation is envisaged to take form of a commercial agreement with technical assistance, license or research cooperation agreement.

Description

Description: 

This UK company develops 3D imaging solutions for healthcare, education and energy markets. They use machine learning and 3D imaging to develop image classification and robotic systems.

The company are primarily looking to find collaborators and development partners operating in the field of assistive robotics. The company started developing their first robotic platform at the start of 2017, developing their patented 3D imaging system to provide high-precision scanning for robotic inspection of a nuclear facility. They have undertaken numerous collaborative R&D projects through Innovate UK, but none with overseas partners.

The company are currently using off-the-shelf drone platforms but wish to work with electronics companies to develop a robotic device suitable for indoor use. They estimate an addressable market of £15b in Europe and anticipate considerable commercial potential in this sector.

International partners and collaborators are sought to help bring a robotics systems to market, particularly an indoor, airborne robotic assistant. The UK company are keen to explore the latest technology in the field. They wish to establish research and commercial collaborations with overseas companies, licensing is also considered.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Cooperation sought: 
The company have developed and tested a prototype system which was met with considerable enthusiasm from its target user group. They now wish to accelerate the development to bring this product to the market quickly. The UK company wish to learn about the state-of-the-art in the field of robotics and machine vision and identify specialists with a view to collaboration.
