Senior Robotics Business Development Manager


High performance robotic solutions are being delivered at an ever decreasing cost and we are genuinely reaching a tipping point. From stock-checking and infrastructure inspection to moving material around offices, hospitals or construction sites; the business case for using a robot is starting to make sense and companies developing new commercial applications are emerging every day. As this market starts to form, there is a tendency for companies to avoid vision-based localisation and mapping in favour of more expensive but easier to deploy laser-based solutions.  Even though vision has the potential to provide a much richer amount of spatial information, the complexities of building a reliable, affordable vision-based system has been out of reach for most companies; until now.

Who are we?

SLAMcore is a London-based startup founded by visual SLAM algorithm pioneers and specialists. With significant VC funding from top investors around the world, we are developing breakthrough Spatial AI solutions for next generation robots and drones by harnessing computer vision, sensor fusion and machine learning.
