Micropsi Raises $30M to Scale Automation

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Micropsi Industries, a provider of turnkey AI-systems for industrial automation, closed a $30 million Series B financing round. The funding will be used to expand operations in the U.S., ramp up sales efforts, and expand to more robotics platforms.

The company’s MIRAI robot control system uses sensor and cameras to be able to react in real time to dynamic conditions in a workspace. Robots powered by the system can be trained by humans to perform hand-eye-coordinated actions in industrial environments. Companies such as Siemens Energy, ZF Group, and BSH use MIRAI in their production halls, the company said.

“Our technology makes it easy to transfer dynamic motion know-how from humans to robots,” said Ronnie Vuine, CEO and co-founder of Micropsi. “We have not optimized the textbook approach for specific applications but took a radically different approach inspired by how humans coordinate motions.”

The company recently hired robotics expert Dominik Bösl, a professor at Hochschule der Bayerischen Wirtschaft, as managing director to oversee the company’s technology roadmap. Bösl previously held positions at Festo, Kuka, and Microsoft.

New investors Metaplanet, VSquared, and Ahren Innovation Capital co-led the funding round. Existing investors Project A Ventures and M Ventures also participated.
