Welcome to Episode 68 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 interview Adrian Macneil, co-founder and CEO of Calif.-based startup Foxglove, discusses open source visualization and debugging tool for robotics. He discusses the company’s spin-out from autonomous driving company Cruise, how its solutions differ from RViz, challenges of robotics development and the keys to running his startup. Foxglove recently raised $3.7 million in Seed funding.
We also discuss some of the more interesting new stories that happened prior to recording the podcast. That includes how robots helped build the James Webb telescope, an improved Pepper humanoid that never came to light, and the potential fallout of the $40 billion deal between NVIDIA and Arm.
