We design and manufacture highly integrated and reliable solutions for service industries and research institutions worldwide. We help our clients integrate robotics into their organisations, fully adapted to their project and or business needs.
PAL Robotics started in 2004, when a small group of engineers built the first fully autonomous humanoid biped robot in Europe. With over 16 years of experience in R&D, today we are known for our humanoid and mobile robots used for research, logistics, retail and social applications for companies, institutions and labs.
Our mission is to enhance people’s quality of life through service robotics and automation technologies. Robots are able to make a difference by collaborating with humans, providing support for domestic tasks and increasing efficiency in industrial workflows.
We have a multinational group of employees from over 20 nationalities and are highly engineering focused – with 80% of employees being engineers. We have sold our robotic platforms in more than 35 countries worldwide. All of our platforms are designed and manufactured in Barcelona.
PAL Robotics´ research has led to the creation of several biped and wheeled humanoid robots.
Today we are focused on:
● Bi pedal legged robots for R&D – such as TALOS
● Independent mobile robots for logistics and inventory tracking – such as TIAGo Base and StockBot
● Mobile manipulators for assistive and industrial applications – such as TIAGo
● Social humanoid robotics for interaction with people and use in public spaces. – such as REEM-C and ARI
● Quadruped robots – such as SOLO 12 Advanced Quadruped Platform in collaboration with the Open Dynamic Robot Initiative
A history in our development of robots:
● 2005 – REEM-A
● 2008 – REEM-B
● 2010 . REEM-H1
● 2012 – REEM
● 2013 – REEM-C
● 2015 – StockBot & TIAGo
● 2017 – TALOS
● 2019 – ARI
● 2021 – SOLO 12 (with the Open Dynamic Robot Initiative)
We also offer a range of robotic components – including actuation modules, robotic arms, and mobile bases along with software, i.e. navigation and manipulation software. We develop customizable, tailor-made platforms and modular robotic parts that adjust to your needs.
Our robots operate in crowded environments, and are regularly used in shopping malls, museums and conference centers, ensuring interaction with hundreds of people. Safety considerations are included in the design of the robots and movements definition.
PAL Robotics is one of the founding members of EU Robotics, an association whose main mission is to collaborate with the European Commission to develop and implement a strategy and a roadmap for research, technological development and innovation in robotics to ensure Europe’s competitiveness in the global ecosystem.
We are also involved in numerous collaborative projects in different industries such as manufacturing, retail, research and healthcare along with numerous EU-funded research projects.
