New investment in robotics software
The Spicehaus Swiss Venture Fund invests in EPFL spin-off AICA SA.
AICA produces software that can automatically program robots to perform non-static tasks. The software is manufacturer-independent and compatible with the most important robot systems. It enables companies of all sizes to automate non-linear tasks. AICA combines reinforcement learning and close-loop force control to give robots a sense of touch as well as the ability to learn and adapt autonomously.
Spicehaus acted as lead investor and invested together with Hightech Gründerfonds and the German automotive and industrial supplier Schaeffler. The official press release can be found here.
