About the Company: GrayMatter Robotics, founded in 2020 by Ariyan Kabir (CEO), Brual Shah (CTO), and Satyandra (S.K.) Gupta (Chief Scientist), develops software and AI algorithms to create robotic assistants that help humans more safely and effectively do surface treatment tasks such as sanding and spraying on manufacturing lines. GrayMatter Robotics implements its software with commercially available robots, sensors, and end-of-arm tools and enables them to treat any unique part. It uses machine vision and path planning to identify the part's geometry, pick up the right tool to process the part, figure out its material and which process to use, and then program the robot arm in the correct motion and execute the operation.
