Squishy Robotics in the News
Grand Prize Win
Squishy Robotics was the grand prize winner at the TECH PLANTER Silicon Valley Demo Day on October 11, 2019. CEO Alice Agogino presented our robotic platform and technologies before judges who were representatives from mostly Asia-based companies interested in Deep Tech.
Sensor Robots Can Handle Hazardous Situations
Material Handling & Logistics published an article about how our robots can be used in situations where human access can be difficult or unsafe, Sensor Robots Can Handle Hazardous Situations. Its sister publication, EHS Today, published the same story on its website. The publications serve two different managerial and professional groups: material handling managers who oversee supply chain, logistics, and material handling in manufacturing, distribution, and retail sectors and environmental, health, and safety managers in the manufacturing, construction, and service sectors.
Squishy Robotics Awarded SBIR Phase II Grant from the National Science Foundation
The $734,000 Phase II grant, will be awarded over the next two years, will enable our company to further develop our product platform while continuing to test, improve, and sell our Stationary Robot. In addition to helping Squishy Robotics perform the R&D that will assist us to de-risk future products, the SBIR Phase II grant will also match 50 percent of any investor funding up to $500,000.
These Squishy Robots Can Survive A 600 Feet Fall
The squishy robots by Squishy Robotics are about two feet wide and feature video cameras and electronic sensors housed within a ball-shaped lattice of cables and rods that help provide a buffer to the sensitive gear from any hits such as falling to the ground after falling from a great height. The basic idea behind the squishy robots is to have these shape-shifting robots deployed from the aircraft that flies over areas that have been hit by earthquakes, spills of hazardous chemicals, or wildfires.
Multiple Projects for U.S. Army
Squishy Robotics has just started working on two projects for the U.S. Army. Our company was recently competitively selected for a $108,000 U.S. Army development contract. We have also signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Soldier Center (CCDC Soldier Center) in Natick, Massachusetts.
First Responders Get Life-Saving Sensor Readings, Video Surveillance
ISHN Magazine published two recent articles. The first provides an overview of Squishy Robotics and its technologies, and in the second, editor Dave Johnson describes how our robots “come to the rescue” in First responders get life-saving sensor readings, video surveillance. ISHN Magazine is published for safety and health professionals in high-hazard industrial and construction workplaces.
