Robotics Business Review Names OTTO Motors a Top Robotics Company in 2017

OTTO Motors elected to RBR50

Kitchener, ON, Canada, Mar. 21, 2017 – Robotics Business Review (RBR) has unveiled the sixth annual RBR list, naming OTTO™ Motors as one of the most noteworthy companies in the global robotics industry for 2017.

The global robotics industry is more competitive than ever, and new companies are emerging constantly. The RBR50 list is made of companies who are visionaries, trend setters, and companies to watch. They are recognized based on their groundbreaking applications, market influence, and industry potential. The list represents many different levels and facets of the robotics ecosystem.

“For this year's list, our team had the daunting task of evaluating numerous competitive nominations. The RBR50 for 2017 represents the cream of the crop of the world's most innovative, most influential, and most commercially successful robotics companies,” said Eugene Demaitre, RBR senior editor.

“We have a team of passionate innovators, who are fully committed to solving material transport problems for industrial leaders. We’re humbled and incredibly honored to be recognized on the RBR 50 list,” said Simon Drexler, Director of Industrial Products at OTTO Motors.

This international compilation spans 10 countries and includes companies ranging from brand-new startups to the biggest robotics makers. The RBR50 list is dynamic, with robotics companies entering and leaving on an annual basis and thus creating a list that is indicative of where the global automation as a whole is headed.

“We expect the RBR50 honorees to continue to lead the industry across growing markets, and we look forward to tracking their progress in 2017,” added Demaitre.

OTTO Motor’s flagship product is the OTTO™ 100 self-driving vehicle, released in 2016. The OTTO platform provides intelligent, flexible material transport for industrial facilities and does not require fixed infrastructure to operate (no barcodes, beacons or pre-programmed paths).
