About Us

Our Past

Cyberworks Robotics launched in 1984, the same year our founder published the world’s first academic thesis on intelligent floor coverage of unmapped complex spaces. In the decades since we pioneered a wide range of ground breaking self-driving robotic technologies:

  • In 1984, we developed the world’s first autonomous robot able to see and understand the geometry of world around it and perform complex navigation tasks – without any pre-learning or apriori maps;
  • In the mid-1980’s we pioneered the precursors of what came to be known as SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) and AI-based navigation path planning, with techniques similar to Boustrophedon Cellular Decomposition – long before BCD was independently re-developed by researchers in the early 90’s;
  • In 1987, we were first in the world to develop a fully autonomous industrial floor cleaning robot (i.e., one that did not require a first pass to teach it the layout of a room);
  • In 1991, we built the world’s first robotically-assisted electric scooter for the disabled.


Our Present and Future

Today, we are leading the next wave of innovations, both in autonomous navigation guidance systems with low-cost high-resolution 3D machine vision and in AI-based path planning.

Whereas in the past we built complete robotic products like robotic floor sweepers, our new business model focuses on developing the “brains” of such machines: autonomous navigation guidance systems. Recent breakthroughs in our R&D and AI technology have allowed Cyberworks to develop a new generation of low-cost add-on autonomous navigation systems; we are curently entering strategic partnership discussions with select OEM’s, in order to commercialize the next generation of navigation technology to third-party scrubbers, sweepers, power wheelchairs and more.

Cyberworks’ industry-leading status and its relationships with global corporations have been well documented in the New York Times, LA Times, Globe and Mail, etc. We also collaborate with several top tier universities on next generation technology development, facilitating the exchange of techniques and expertise between industry and academia.
