Cobalt Robotics recently announced that Promus Ventures and Bloomberg Beta have co-led their seed round. We are privileged to help this fantastic team develop robots for enterprise security that are designed to work alongside humans. Cobalt's robots keep offices safe by patrolling the premises and looking for intruders or anything out of the ordinary. Here is a video showing Cobalt robots in action.
Cobalt was founded by Travis Deyle and Erik Schluntz, former GoogleX and SpaceX engineers, respectively. Cobalt worked with world-renowned designer Yves Behar to design their robots.
Cobalt robots use machine learning, semantic mapping, and neural networks combined with over 60 sensors, including LiDAR, ultrasound, thermal, depth sensors and cameras. These robots can detect and flag security-relevant conditions or anomalies such as people, doors and windows, items that have moved or changed, water leaks, etc. Cobalt also includes microphones and two-way video chat screens in their robots that allow human security guards or building managers to remotely interact with a person who the robot approaches, as well as RFID scanners that can check employee credentials.
We're excited to help the Cobalt team build robotic solutions that create a far safer and secure environment for company personnel and facilities.
