Rapyuta Robotics is a global technology startup that builds cloud robotics solutions. Their goal is to empower lives through connected machines so humans can focus on intellectually challenging and creative work. They have around 110 employees across their offices in Japan and India.

While improvements in technology are helping to make robotics more accessible to markets, the ability to integrate all the required expertise remains a barrier for most companies. Rapyuta Robotics is building a platform to make robots more attainable and useful to anyone.

Their platform makes it easy for businesses to deploy robotics solutions without needing in-house robotics expertise. By integrating robot hardware, software, sensor data, and applications in the cloud — where powerful data centers manage the heavy computation — Rapyuta’s platform lets end-users focus on their business processes instead of on managing robot hardware or software infrastructure.

Empowering Lives with Connected Machines.
Rapyuta Robotics strongly believes that the dirty, dull, and dangerous work should be automated and people should be given an option to take up more intellectually challenging and creative work. They aim to enable this automation with machines that are connected and coordinated.

They hope that robotics will not exclude people, but work for them as a familiar partner, creating new ways of working and new revenue opportunities.
