Based in Boston, MA, Rethink Robotics, Inc. developed the world’s first robot with common sense to increase productivity and efficiency in manufacturing environments. Introducing robots into places that have never been automated before, Rethink’s Baxter™ is a safe, affordable, easy to use collaborative robot that is making manufacturers more efficient, their workers more productive and keeping jobs from migrating to low-cost regions. Baxter was one of Time magazine’s top inventions of 2012, and has been featured on 60 Minutes, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Wired and many other well known media sources.
In April 2013, the company introduced the Baxter™ Research Robot, a compelling new addition to the world of corporate and academic research. Baxter Research Robot allows research teams to focus on specific application development goals, including human-robot interactions, collaborative robotics, planning, control and perception.
