New Funding


Brain Corp, a developer of robot operating systems, has received US$36 million in funding to help buttress its rapid expansion of cleaning robots throughout retail stores and public locations in the United States. With over 10,000 scrubbers enabled with autonomy and thousands deployed, Brain has deployed more active Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) in retail stores than any other vendor. The company more than doubled its revenue for 2019 and is in the lucky minority of companies that can hope to benefit from the coronavirus pandemic. With shortages in labor at retail stores, the desire to automate time-consuming tasks like cleaning has expanded. As well as this, the emphasis on cleanliness has lead retailers like Walmart, Target, and Kroger to document their maintenance operations.

Brain might be the best-known vendor for commercial cleaning robots, but it is far from alone. Avidbots, a Canadian robotics developer, has deployed over 250 Neo scrubbers worldwide and has recently etched a landmark deal with logistics giant DHL, which will be deploying hundreds of Neo scrubbers over the next 24 months.
