About Olive Robotics

Olive Robotics started in 2020, on a basis of research and development initiated at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Our vision is to enable AI and robotics for everyone. We want to offer universities, labs, startups, and companies of all sizes the opportunity to utilize our robot kit to intuitively create novel systems. Using our various AI-enabled robot components, we make it possible to create in days or weeks what would otherwise take months or years.

In addition to the modular and intuitive assembly of our robot kit and the endless configuration possibilities, what makes them stand out is the unique software. We have developed software that enables the modules to communicate natively with ROS 1 and ROS 2 protocols at super low latency with IP-based connection. Additionally, each module can run dedicated apps inside. We call these apps “Assets”. Loading assets inside the module and executing using our embedded TPU accelerator can add new functionality to the sensors and actuators in runtime. On top, we introduce the first managed AI and robotics app store, where expert users can share and sell assets in our “App Store” platform. This guarantees the quick and easy plug & play application of our kit without complex programming.
