SAN DIEGO, May 16 (UPI) -- Robotics software company 5D Robotics Inc. has expanded its operations in California with new office and robotic research and development bay.
The company said the new space in San Diego is 14,500 square feet, and that it will continue to rent a large outdoor space for testing and demonstrating.
The company integrates human behavior with leading robotics hardware. It created Behavior Engine software that makes it easier for humans to interact with robots.
"The 5D vision of integrating robotic hardware and software to create real, reactive human behaviors is exciting to the robotics community, the defense sector and private industry," said 5D Robotics Chief Executive Officer David Rowe.
"We continue to provide soldiers with robotic teammates that can carry their gear and find hazards, now we are expanding into commercial applications and we needed larger offices and testing areas in order to do that.
"We are currently working with partners and customers on products for warehouse/distribution, lodging and hospitality and mining."
