Award-winning Australian autonomous mapping and data analytics startup Emesent is ready to execute its ambitious global expansion plans after closing an oversubscribed $32 million Series A round.
Emesent is proud to have their Hovermap LiDAR mapping and autonomy payload announced as the winner of the Geo Week LiDAR Leader Award for Outstanding Innovation.
Considered the Olympics of Robotics, the DARPA SubTerranean Challenge is an autonomous robotics competition developed by the US Defence Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA).
Emesent is pleased to announce a new service partnership with Robotic Skies that will mean users in the Americas get their Emesent products serviced and repaired locally.
Since construction, the overflow tunnel hadn’t been accessed or inspected until AMKVO arrived with Hovermap.
Now employing over 120 staff, Emesent has a large engineering team – over 50 people. This team is furthering the ten years of research in robotics and autonomous systems started by the founders at the CSIRO. The staff are spread far and wide, with teams based in Europe and in the United States to work more closely with Emesent’s existing and growing list of partners and customers in these regions. Partners, like the resellers’ network that has grown to over 40 resellers around the world.
Emesent is part of a new research Hub bringing together academic researchers and industry partners to transform the way Australia manages infrastructure assets, like bridges, towers, and subsea pipelines. Known as the ARC Research Hub in Intelligent Robotic Systems for Real-Time Asset Management, the collaboration is about to get started with a series of workshops.
Emesent is collaborating with PointCab to enable users to import a processed Hovermap scan into PointCab Origins for improved outputs.
Emesent is honored to be awarded the HSBC Award for Excellence in International Business in the Brisbane Lord Mayor Business Awards for 2021. The company is also privileged to receive a special mention for the ANZ Award for High-Growth Business.
