Welcome to Episode 67 of The Robot Report Podcast, which brings conversations with robotics innovators straight to you. Join us each week for discussions with leading roboticists, innovative robotics companies, and other key members of the robotics community.
In today’s episode, Steve and Mike discuss a number of a large robotic company funding announcements that happened over the last week, totaling nearly $1 billion. If this trend continues, it may be a record year for investments into robotics-related organizations.
In the featured interview this week, Mike Oitzman talked Jan Becker CEO and co-founder of Apex.AI and Joe Speed, VP product & chief evangelist for Apex.AI. They discuss the software and operating system needs for autonomous vehicles and discuss how Apex.AI contributed to the success of the recent Autonomous Challenge @CES autonomous racing event.
