Augmentus - “Robotics Simplified”- a Startup journey
Learn how a group of engineers and developers left their stable jobs tobuild one of the most successful robotics startups in Singapore
Thursday, 24 November 2022
We’re delighted to offer via ZOOM, a chat with Daryl Lim, co-founder of Augmentus. Founded in 2019 in Singapore, Augmentus is a no-code robotics platform which enables non-technical users to program industrial robots in minutes, instead of months. Since being nominated by CUAAHK to compete with over a hundred others in the ATEC (Asia Technology Entrepreneurship Conference) 2022 competition, Augmentus has been selected as one of the eight finalists for the Finals on Dec 3rd at HK’s Cyberport.
Prior to Augmentus, co-founders Yong Shin, Voon Foo, and Daryl spent years developing industrial automation solutions for MNCs in the manufacturing sector, where they experienced the high difficulty and heavy fragmentation in conventional robotics, and knew that there had to be a better way to program robots to make it easier and more accessible to the masses. Necessity and passion then drove them to dedicate 3+ years pioneering 3D scanning and motion planning technologies to solve this challenge.
Augmentus’s products and services are already being used by the leading manufacturing companies around the world, such as Hyundai, Johnson & Johnson, Fujitsu, and many more, since their recent product launch in mid-2022. Come join us to hear Daryl speak about this distinguished and remarkable startup story!
