Elementary Robotics, a robotics platform startup founded in 2017, recently announced a further $3.6M in new seed funding. The company’s latest round included participation from Toyota AI Ventures. Eva Ho, General Partner at Fika Ventures, will be joining Arye Barnehama, Elementary’s co-founder and CEO, and Bill Gross of Idealab, on the company’s board.
Elementary’s easy-to-use software, deep learning AI, and camera systems are built to capture visual data, deliver fast and reliable real-time judgements, and provide lasting value to your business.
Elementary’s Radian inspection camera offers an inline solution for automated deep-learning based inspection. The 1.6MP GigE camera with swappable lens has integrated and controllable lighting with 1440 x 1080 resolution. Prism software provides valuable insights. With the plug and play system it should only takes 20 minutes for remote deployment.
Intuitive Interface with ‘Plug and Play’ Customization
With a rich interface, remote setup options and many pre-programmed features right out of the box, users can get up and running quickly without relying on lengthy training sessions or in-person engineer visits.
Toyota AI Ventures’ investment in Elementary Robotics comes as part of its recent ‘call for innovation’ with the Toyota Research Institute (TRI). “We launched the first call with TRI’s mobile manipulation team to give talented entrepreneurs a nudge in both direction and capital to make assistive robots more useful, safe, and affordable” said Jim Adler, founding managing director of Toyota AI Ventures. “Arye and the Elementary Robotics team share our commitment to improve the quality of human life through AI and robotics. They have the talent, expertise, and vision to deliver on that commitment.”
“Building cutting-edge robotic systems to augment and amplify human’s ability to perform a wide range of advanced and complex tasks, Elementary is well-positioned to become one of the most meaningful deep tech companies in Los Angeles,” Ho said.
