Kinova named in the RBR 2020 Innovation Awards
Once again, it’s a very exciting time for us at Kinova, being listed in the 2020 RBR50 Innovation Awards is testament to our evolution providing off-the-shelf robotic arms and technologies to a various number of organizations thriving in a broad range of fields.
This year we had the chance to be featured in the Product, technology & services innovation category (Innovation Class) with a more in-depth focus on Product introduction (Innovation Subclass). The title showing on our record goes as follows: “KINOVA’s Gen3 family of robotic arms supports research efforts and spurs commercial development”.
Overtime, as mentioned in The Robot Report June 2020 Digital Edition, page 88*, we were able to help pathbreakers and innovative thinkers by providing a key component within their solution. Including: security (EOD1) mobile robot, hazmat rig for handling nuclear waste, nurse-supporting mobile robot called “Moxi”, agrifood mobile robot, deep learning & AI algorithms testing platform, etc.

Academic and commercial R&D efforts are the wellspring of most robotics innovation, including early experimentation and development for commercial-class robotics systems. Collaborative robotics arms are commonly employed as research tools, but the suppliers of most cobots consider research to be a secondary or tertiary target market after the manufacturing, logistics, and other commercial sectors. - Dan Kara, Robotics Business Review
The result of our engineered-fueled, ever-evolving R&D; an ultra lightweight, versatile and open software robotic arms family.
