Preliminary Insights from the Methane Emissions Study

Dr. Alice Agogino and researchers at Squishy Robotics are conducting a study on methane emissions detection, characterization, and remediation. The Methane Emissions Reporting study focuses on reviewing previous research data and interviewing leaders in the Oil and Gas industry, investors, scientists, and government regulators. Early observations identify existing challenges, key trends, and opportunities for changes […]

A.I. and Robotics: Detecting Methane to Fight Climate Change

Squishy Robotics CEO and co-founder Dr. Alice Agogino was one of the panelists for the inaugural session of “AI for Good,” a year-long digital series of events exploring how robotics and artificial intelligence (A.I.) can help achieve the United Nation (UN)’s Sustainability Goals and improve conditions for humankind and our planet.

Island-Hopping Demo Showcases Payload Delivery and Sensing

Squishy Robotics’ air deployment capabilities and our robots’ customizable payloads were ideal innovations for a late-summer event in the Aloha State. Lead Mechatronics Engineer Douglas Hutchings spent six busy days at a demonstration sponsored by the Applied Research Lab at the University of Hawaii (ARL at UH). The 2021 Technology Incubation, Demonstration and Experimentation Support (TIDES) event was titled: “Human-machine […]

Sensor Robots Fighting Wildfires

Squishy Robotics recently participated in a prescribed burn event in Novato, CA that was run by  F.I.R.E. Foundry and a local fire department.

New Fire Department Partner

The Olathe Fire Department is now a Squishy Robotics pilot partner. Squishy Robotics shipped three tensegrity robots in mid-August to the Kansas fire department, which coordinated the robot delivery with the department’s delivery of a new DJI Matrice 300 drone for emergency response.
