We create order from chaos.

Plus One supports the mission of ‘always-on’ logistics.

We mitigate the persistent shortage of manual labor and allow your personnel to flow from monotonous tasks to higher value work.

Through the integration of off-the-shelf high performance manipulators with our advanced vision capabilities, your robots will bridge the gap between steady state volume and surge.

Plus One’s novel approach to human/robot collaboration and supervised autonomy ensures the systems are scalable, flexible, and fault tolerant.
