RealTime Robotics scores $11.7M Series A to help robots avoid collisions

One of the major challenges facing engineers as they develop more agile robots is helping them move through space while avoiding collisions, especially in a dynamic environment.

RealTime Robotics, a Boston-based startup announced an $11.7 million Series A investment to help solve this problem.

“We are based on research work done at Duke University in 2016 in the field of work called robotic motion planning, which is basically how a six or seven degree of freedom robot finds its way through space without hitting anything,” Howard told TechCrunch.
