To the press

Rapyuta Robotics Co. Ltd., (Chuo-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Gajan Mohanarajah; hereinafter “Rapyuta Robotics”), a provider of the cloud robotics platform “rapyuta.io” is pleased to announce that we have formed a business alliances with BIKEN TECHNO CORPORATION (Suita City, Osaka; President: Ryusei Kajiyama; hereinafter “Biken Techno”), a leading independent building maintenance company.

◾️Background and purpose of business alliances

Rapyuta Robotics brings flexibility and scalability to robotics. We develop and provide cloud robotics platform “rapyuta.io”, that excels at coordinating multiple robots and multiple types of robots, especially focusing on automation of warehouse logistics. As the first step to this platform concept, we commercialized a collaborative picking assistant robot (Autonomous Mobile Robot, AMR) for logistics warehouses in May 2020, which has been put into operation at three sites so far. We have formed a business alliance with the aim of utilizing the customer base of Biken Techno in order to make AMR available to more logistics sites in the future. In the future, we will strive for the further development and spread of cloud robotics by utilizing the facilities owned by Biken Techno and exploring the use of robots in various ways.
