Remote Robotics Inc. started its business operations.

Realize a remote society where all people can participate

Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. and Sony Group's robotics technology, remote control technology, sensing technology, image processing technology, communication technology, and various AI technologies will optimize services based on robotics, remoteness, and community that connect workers and businesses.
Remote Robotics Inc. is a business company that enhances a new work style in the future society.

Service platform connecting businesses and remote workers

By building a remote robot platform that can monitor and operate robots performing various tasks at the manufacturing site from a remote location, we will improve work safety, eliminate heavy labor, and create new work styles regardless of location or time.
We will mainly provide robot software and solution services in the remote robot platform.
For example, working in a hot environment, such as the steelmaking field, is physically burdensome, difficult to continue working, and dangerous.
On the other hand, skilled workers use remote robot operation services to contribute to ensuring safety and improving productivity.
Remote Robotics Inc. plans to conduct a demonstration experiment at a factory in the general industrial field by the end of 2021.
