We look forward to hearing from you.
At Rapyuta Robotics, we believe that the greatest potential for Cloud Robotics lies in its ability to make robots more accessible to new markets. Our enterprise ready Cloud Robotics platform is transforming autonomous technologies that were once considered too complex, too difficult, or too expensive to implement into easy-to-use, everyday solutions for enterprise.
Build robust, scalable robotics solutions without needing your own in-house infrastructure expertise.
Leverage our Cloud Robotics ecosystem to quickly assemble end-to-end solutions for your customers.
Don’t just acquire digital intelligence — act on it using state-of-the-art autonomous robotic systems.
Softbank Commerce & Service congratulates the launch of Rapyuta Robotics’ “Robot-as-a-Service”. While we are driving the commercial use of drones through our website "https://dronebank.jp/", we believe automatic charging is an essential feature for further market expansion. In addition, we believe that providing a full support scheme to reduce the burden on the end user will help expand both the user base and potential applications for robotics. By adopting advanced technologies that enhance both safety and productivity, we hope to accelerate the growth of the drone market.

As we enter an era of declining workforce population, robotics technologies will be an important tool for addressing Japan’s socio-economic challenges. Kyoto is home to a number of hi-tech manufacturing companies that are producing critical components for robotics, such as sensors, motors, and gears. We therefore believe that by promoting the use of robotics, we can also support local businesses. We have already started working with Rapyuta Robotics and Kyoto manufacturing companies as part of our policy research, and we look forward to furthering the development of autonomous robotics infrastructure.
