Dr. Zhaopeng Chen welcomes Sebastian to the Agile Robots team
“We are delighted to welcome Sebastian to the Agile Robots team. His expertise will help us take our global sales structure to a new level and accelerate our strong business growth,” says Dr. Zhaopeng Chen, founder and CEO of Agile Robots. Over the past year, Agile Robots has increased the number of employees in Germany to around 100 and 270 in China. At the beginning of the year, the company moved into its new head office in Munich with 2,600 square meters of office space on two floors. By the end of the year, Agile Robots plans to continue to significantly expand its staff in Germany and China.
Agile Robots’ products are characterized by the combination of modern sensor and robot technology with artificial intelligence, thus closing the gap between these key technologies. This enables the company to make innovative leaps in the production of highly sensitive robots. The robots’ capabilities are based on machine and transfer learning, computer vision, and the use of state-of-the-art force-torque sensors. As a result, the robots are able to sense their environment independently and work safely and precisely even in unknown environments. The goal is to create highly sensitive robot systems that can be reliably used in various complex and safety-critical application scenarios with the help of a deterministic robot operating system.
We are thrilled to have Sebastian on board and are looking forward to a successful collaboration!
