Robotics firm to open office in Silicon Valley
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.
