Lab: Installing Robots

In January of 2015 construction on an extension of Pier 9 was complete and our team moved into a new facility, now known as the Applied Research lab. The space is designed to be modular so it can adapt to new initiatives (it’s hard to say today what we may be working on a year from now) but since we were diving into robotics it definitely made sense to include a reinforced floor and the necessary infrastructure for some industrial robot arms.

Over the first half of 2015 we gradually went through the growing pains of moving into the lab and installing the robots because the we decided not to use an integrator so we could really understand what all goes into getting a robot up and running (cheers to David for all the wrangling he did as a result)
