Odense Robotics, Denmark’s nationwide robotic and drone cluster, handed out awards for firm and startup of the 12 months throughout its current convention. Capra Robotics, which is creating out of doors cell robots, gained Robotics Firm of the 12 months 2022, and Spin Robotics, an organization that gives a collaborative screwdriving device, gained Robotics Startup of the 12 months 2022.

Odense Robotics’ roughly 300 members, made up of robotic, automation and drone firms, nominated and voted for finalists for the awards.

Capra confronted sturdy competitors from different finalists, beating out Blue Ocean Robotics and Common Robots. The Capra Hircus out of doors cell robotic can deal with several types of hundreds and be used for a wide range of functions. Hircus runs ROS 2 and permits third-party instruments and functions to be hooked up both to its high or by way of a trailer. It additionally has an I/O connector plate with normal connectors, so functions mounted on the robotic can use the battery provide (24V with 23-29.4V vary) and Ethernet supplied by the robotic by way of their respective M12 connectors.

“This award is testomony to Capra Robotics’ sturdy basis created by the corporate founder Mads Bendt and the crew we’ve constructed up collectively over the previous couple of years,” stated Capra CEO Niels Jul Jacobsen, who additionally based Cellular Industrial Robots (MiR). “Capra Robotics goals to revolutionise the usage of out of doors cell robots in inspection and surveillance, city service and upkeep, and logistics. The potential is large and we’re humbled that Denmark’s robotics, automation and drone business has chosen to recognise Capra Robotics with this award.”

Competitors was additionally tight for Robotics Startup of the 12 months 2022. Spin confronted off in opposition to Goal Robotics, ARIS Robotics, Uniwelco and Weldingdroid. Spin launched its screwdriving finish effector for collaborative robots in 2021 and is now scaling the answer. The startup hopes to start in Europe and develop to North American and Asian markets by the top of 2022.

“It’s an actual honor to be awarded Robotics Startup of the 12 months 2022. We’ve got had a robust concentrate on our tech improvement and now we have now a robust product that may carry out strenuous screwing duties, that are performed manually in lots of firms,” Teit Silberling, CEO at Spin, stated. “We’re a great crew with large, international progress ambitions. Scaling up in Europe is what we’re centered on now. This award is a implausible recognition of the expansion potential that lies in our firm and our product.”

Spin’s all-in-one screwdriving answer is ready to insert six screws in lower than a minute, the corporate claims. Its merchandise are used throughout quite a few industries, together with automotive, logistics, medical home equipment and extra.

Odense Robotics has 5 hubs in Aalborg, Aarhus, Copenhagen, Odense and Sonderborg. The aim of the cluster is to speed up sustainable improvement amongst robotic, automation and drone firms. The group opened its fifth and ultimate hub in Aalborg in January 2022.

Denmark has lengthy been residence to one of many strongest robotics clusters worldwide. In line with the Odense Robotics Perception Report 2022 (PDF), Denmark’s robotics business grew 12% in 2021. Denmark’s robotics, automation and drone business generated EUR 2.8 billion (DKK 21.1 billion) in turnover in 2021, together with EUR 1.5 billion (DKK 11 billion) in exports.
