Robotics and Automation
An Airplane is a Robot.
Virtually every industry as we know it today will undergo a seismic shift caused by robotics and automation systems. Today, an airplane is a robot. Tomorrow, an autonomous aircraft is the future of robotics.
It is just one example of how when we combine thinking, sensing, moving and intelligent technologies working seamlessly together, we can create remarkable new services, products and production processes across large global markets with enormous disruptive potential.
The integration between mechanics, electronics and software has quickly evolved in the 21st century. Think of the conductor and the orchestra working much better together through smarter design.
If the programmer supplies all the intelligence, then that’s just a program. If a system is modeled on the mind, you can create an intelligent system that is capable of learning and reacting to the world.
Building on the AI example, if the machine has an intelligent world model, the sensors and machine vision can help build on that foundation, helping the machine “learn.”
The near future will see stronger communication and control between human and machine allowing the machines to function better for us humans.
Today robots typically perform from a top-down directive, one task at a time, and for safety reasons far away from people. In the near future, we will see robots working collaboratively and intelligently with humans leading to huge productivity gains.
Like switches in the power semiconductor industry, through a combination of demand, Moore’s law and rapid advancements in science and technology, component parts are getting better designed and cost much less.
Chrysalix RoboValley Fund
The Chrysalix RoboValley Fund invests in game-changing robotics and automation companies that will fundamentally transform the world’s largest industries.
Robotics and artificial intelligence will have an unprecedented impact on the way that we live and provides an answer to some of the grand challenges of the 21st Century. Many large corporations recognize the transformative potential of modern robotics but have limited resources to pursue these opportunities.
The RoboValley Fund will bring much needed capital and accelerated paths to market for the most promising next generation enabling technologies. Drawing on the collective expertise and broad international networks of both Chrysalix and RoboValley, it will connect novel robotics technology and market demand by leveraging the world class RoboValley Innovation Hub and TU Delft Robotics Institute with Chrysalix established network of corporate and financial limited partners to identify the most pressing industry problems and market needs that breakthrough robotic solutions could solve.
RoboValley is the leading center for robotics commercialization in Europe located at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
RoboValley takes a leading role in the development of the next generation robotics, where more than 170 robotic researchers distributed over six faculties and 13 departments collaborate with other experts, entrepreneurs and decision makers in both public and private sectors.
The Robotics Institute has rapidly become an important robotics hub, combining both fundamental and applied reserach with development of robot prototypes, in labs as well as in spin-off companies, and the transfer of knowlege and technology to industry and education.
Long the province of fantasy and speculation, robots are now a reality and at RoboValley, a unique network is thriving with TU Delft Robotics Institute at its heart.
