ADVANCED ROBOTICS DOESN’T HAVE TO RHYME WITH COMPLICATED SETUP.

Our products take only a few minutes to setup. With a simple mechanical mounting and software installation, you’ll start working immediately.

BECAUSE DESIGN MATTERS

Service robots are designed to be used in proximity to people while serving their needs. We therefore disrupted the design of traditional industrial robots to create a more appealing and aesthetic look and feel.

TEAR DOWN THE CAGES.

Our low inertia products combined with a complete range of sensors prevent the robots from being potentially harmful to itself or its surroundings.

MANIPULATION IN MOTION

Kinova’s robot arms are the perfect solution for integrating a manipulation dimension to your mobile platform.

They are the ideal partners to assist technicians and professionals for inspections or manipulations in harsh, confined, hazardous or manufacturing environments. Our robots can also be customized to perform a series of automated tasks, augmenting quality, productivity and efficiency in formalized non-regression testing phases. Light and compact, the arm can be integrated with many existing mobile platform models. Moreover, due to its low power consumption, the robot arm will not significantly reduce the autonomy of the platform.

THE PERFECT ASSISTANT

With their modular configuration and low backlash actuators, Kinova’s robot arms are the perfect helping arm for medical operations.

HUMAN ROBOT COLLABORATION

Automating inspection/pick & place operations or working in collaboration with staff on the floor, Kinova’s versatile robots have all the attributes needed to perform the various tasks leading to improving the quality and productivity of your facility.

YOU HAVE THE IDEA, WE HAVE THE TOOL

Fostering innovation is at the heart of Kinova`s values and design philosophy. From fundamentals teaching to cutting edge research, our flexible solutions can create an appropriate configuration for your project. Over 200 labs have adopted our robots for applications ranging from BCI control to humanoid manipulators.

"We're excited to be using the Kinova JACO² arm and 3-finger gripper as part of our neural prosthetics research. The form factor and capabilities of this robot are well-suited for our goal of allowing people with paralysis to be able to control an assistive arm directly with their brain activity to perform activities of daily living. We've also been impressed with Kinova's software support for research-grade interactions with the underlying firmware."
- Beata Jarosiewicz, PhD, Senior Research Scientist at the Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory, Stanford University
“Kinova's robots are the best in their category. They are thoughtfully designed, have a fantastic kinematic reachability, and are safe and lightweight. I am also deeply impressed with Kinova's commitment to deploying their arms in the real world for people with real needs. I am excited to be working closely with them.”
- Siddhartha Srinivasa, CMU
"Our work is aimed at developing service robots that operate side-by-side with humans, in dynamic human environments. Safe and effective operation in close proximity to people is something that Kinova has made a priority in their design, and this is why the JACO has become the manipulator of choice for our service robot applications.
