Discovery Robotics has a corporate mission “to increase human productivity, safety, and quality of life by creating robotic solutions that deliver value to [their] customers.” The Pittsburgh, PA-based robotics manufacturer created the FX250, an autonomous commercial floor cleaning robot, to accomplish this mission in the janitorial services industry.
According to the National Safety Council, ergonomic injuries and accidental falls are common health risks plaguing janitorial workers. Discovery Robotics built the FX250 to reduce these incidents. The company even co-founded the Work to Zero 2050 Movement with the goal of eliminating workplace injury and death by 2050. To help achieve this goal, Discovery Robotics needed an innovative industrial sensor manufacturer for AGV navigation.
