BrainOS® integrates with off-the-shelf sensors to provide a cost-effective “brain” for robots. Its computer vision and A.I. libraries provide advanced self-driving capabilities to enable robots to navigate the cluttered and dynamic environments we live in. 

“We are at the forefront of creating robotic solutions that will not only enhance people’s daily lives, but also empower them to focus on higher value tasks” said Phil Duffy, VP of Innovation at Brain Corp. “We believe the real power of our BrainOS® platform will come from the collaboration that develops between people and robots.”
