In the early 2000s, we, a few people from academia and industry with great interest in robotics, felt that the time was right to start a technology firm specialising in service robotics and intelligent machines. “Intelligent machines” are technical systems consisting of a mechanical base structure with sensors that perceive the environment, activators for a physical response, user interface for communication with people and operators and some kind of built-in intelligence for planning, control, decision making, task handling, etc. As a result of this, Intelligent Machines was founded here in Stockholm. Since its launch in 2004, some of the team have left and others have joined. Currently our core team consists of 5 people. We all have both in-depth and broad knowledge of relevant technical areas for robotics and intelligent machines, making us particularly suitable and adept at robotic system solutions and other autonomous systems solutions. Our knowledge and background from both the industry and research community gives us the unique opportunity of finding solutions from the scientific community to industrial engineering problems in the field of service robotics and intelligent machines.
Throughout the years, we have helped a number of large and small industrial companies in Sweden and Europe to automate their standard products. Some of these projects are briefly described in the projects tab.
