The Next Wave of Robotic Automation


The Next Wave of Robotic Automation

We are excited to unveil the next generation of Digit, the first human-centric, multi-purpose robot made for logistics work.

Digit is designed from the ground up to go where people go and do useful work safely in spaces designed for people, starting with bulk material handling within warehouses and distribution centers. 

We started with scientific breakthroughs and layered on top of that world-class engineering. We approach everything with a focus on function. Our robots were designed from day one to do work and get the job done.

Human-Centric Robots

Building robots to work is one thing. Building robots to navigate an existing warehouse with ease or to work in partnership with people is another.

That’s something that required getting robots in customers’ hands. To build, test, and learn.

What Our Robots Are Working On

Now: Moving Totes & Packages

Up Next: Unloading Trailers

Down the Road: Last Mile Delivery

Robot Philosophy

Our robots aren’t designed with the goal of mimicking people. We set out to create machines that can work in our spaces alongside us. Doing the job right requires many of the same physical characteristics.

It all comes back to our mission, building multi-purpose robots that are made for work
