Ro­bot­ics firm to open of­fice in Sil­i­con Val­ley

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - BUSINESS -

Cana­dian ro­bot man­u­fac­turer Clearpath Ro­bot­ics is rolling into Sil­i­con Val­ley with a new of­fice.

The Kitch­ener, Ont.-based com­pany says it plans to open a prod­uct de­sign fa­cil­ity in the San Fran­cisco Bay Area be­fore the end of the year.

It would be Clearpath's first of­fice out­side the Kitch­ener-Waterloo com­mu­nity where the startup launched about six years ago.

Clearpath makes driver­less ve­hi­cles for min­ing com­pa­nies, the agri­cul­ture in­dus­try and the mil­i­tary.

The com­pany was started by four Univer­sity of Waterloo stu­dents who de­cided to build a ro­bot in their down­time af­ter, they say, they be­came bored with their in­tern­ships.
