AMP Robotics creates a scalable robotic system that reduces the cost of recycling and enables smart recycling facilities. AMP Robotics' solution is a combination of computer vision and machine learning with robots that can identify and rapidly pick recyclable materials off a conveyor belt for market and recovery. AMP Robotics automates the identification, sorting, and processing of material streams to extract value for material recovery facilities (MRFs) that process municipal solid waste, construction and demolition, e-waste, and auto-shredding. The company's engineering design reduces the cost of capital investment with modular implementation easily dropping into existing facility infrastructure without costly retrofits or interruption to operations. AMP Robotics was founded on 2015 and is headquartered in Louisville, Colorado.
Arable is a developer of an integrated system for agriculture that helps digitize and optimize decisions from seed breeding to food production. The platform measures everything that matters to the crop, from the weather to the soil, to the plant itself by the use of a unique set of spectral and thermal sensors. This enables Arable to observe a crop’s development through the season and determine the onset of stress due to a lack of water or nutrients. Its integrated hardware, agronomic modeling, and software suite is enabling farmers, agronomists, researchers, processors, and food companies to understand the crop system at the plant, field, and region level, which helps to reduce risk, improve productivity, and optimize for sustainability. Arable received recognition, including the Irrigation Association’s Best New Product of 2018, Plug & Play’s Top 10 Ag Tech Companies to Watch in 2019, and THRIVE’s Top 50 Companies for 2020 awards.
