While factories have become increasingly automated over recent decades, Bright Machines believes that robotic systems are finally ready for primetime deployment. “Until now, the most complex operations in manufacturing have been too difficult for blind and dumb robots to perform with the same precision and fidelity as humans,” says CEO Amar Hanspal, adding that advances in computer vision and machine learning have changed the game. The company just released its first product in June: So-called “microfactories,” or closed systems with robotic arms that can complete tasks like inserting chips in a circuit board.

Our world will always rely on manufacturers to produce the goods and materials we need to keep our economies and businesses running. Yet, those same manufacturing operations are severely impacting our planet’s health. For example, CO2 emissions released by global fossil fuel combustion and industrial processes rose by roughly 35% over the last 20 years. Led by industry veterans with deep software, engineering and manufacturing expertise.
