Autonomous kitting to fit your infrastructure

Autonomous Workflow

Let our robots take care of kitting so your employees can focus on higher-value work.

Secure & Traceable Handling

Our robots learn your inventory to safely pick parts with speed and accuracy.

Precise & Flexible Kitting

With advanced perception and AI, our robots precisely arrange, sort, and kit parts.

Safe, Adaptive Systems

As a labor multiplier, our systems work easily with your workforce to enhance demand responsiveness.

unlocking autonomous systems

Ascend's robotics serve industries that require precise, secure part-handling, amplifying the power of your workforce. Our systems intelligently adapt to the customer's environment, greatly easing deployment and automation management. The robots retrieve components, provide production line supply, and perform automated kitting.

We believe that embedded intelligence can enable robots that are inherently safe, accessible, and trainable by anyone.

Autonomous Kitting

With an agile workflow, our robots use AI to:

  • Recognize specific objects with accuracy
  • Retrieve components, trays, boxes, bins, etc. from shelves or racks
  • Decide how to pick up and place objects of various shapes
  • Precisely arrange them in target locations and positions

Secure & Traceable Part-Handling

Our robots learn your inventory and pick parts with autonomous grasping. 

With advanced perception, they handle parts safely and provide integrated inspection. For real-time quality control, our systems reliably identify and remove defective parts early in the production process.

PRecise & Flexible Kitting

With perception and learning, our robots provide precise, safe, and efficient part-handling. Ascend’s technology enables the robots to arrange and kit parts for optimal workflow. Bringing just-in-time supply, our systems multiply the production of your workforce.

SAfe, Adaptive Systems

Our systems integrate with your existing infrastructure and work safely alongside your employees. That way, your company achieves higher production while keeping your workflow in place. 

Ascend provides dependable consistency, so you can offload tedious steps to a robot and let people focus on higher-skilled tasks.

Mobile Heavy Lift Arm for Logistics.

Ascend Robotics and Black-i Robotics have teamed to create the first mobile autonomous heavy lift arm system for logistics and manufacturing applications. Ascend’s expertise in vision-guided arm control and human-centered robot control interfaces combines with Black-i’s deep experience designing and building rugged, heavy-payload robots for DARPA and US DoD. The Fullscope Arm is configurable for payloads up to 100 pounds. Delivered as a turnkey mobile manipulation system, integrated with your MES or WMS Or readily integrated onto your AMRs and…

Human-Robot Teaming: Lessons Learned

Ascend Robotics CEO David Askey will share lessons learned from development of systems and workflows that provide close collaboration and teaming of people with robots.  Successful teaming can dramatically improve worker safety, reduce human error, and deliver task traceability.  We’ve found many gotchas on the path to effective teaming, and worker joy when teaming is implemented well.     Join us March 10, 2020 at Modex.  We look forward to a lively discussion.

Mobile Manipulation in Unmapped Environments

Learn how task-driven navigation and manipulation in unmapped environments can automate tasks in your facilities.  Our approach lets the robotics systems adapt to your workflow and work safely near people, and provides a low-risk path to onboard automation.     Contact Ascend to arrange a meeting at CES 2020 or schedule a site visit to see the robots in action.
