Cambrian Robotics, a machine vision startup, has raised $3.5 million in seed funding for its AI platform designed to help robotic arms “surpass human capabilities” for complex, vision-based tasks.

The funding round was led by Cybernetix Ventures and KST Invest, with participation from Yamaha Motor Ventures and Digital Media Professionals.

In a LinkedIn post, Cybernetix said it hopes to “fuel Cambrian's mission to equip industrial robots with human-level capabilities and free humans to do more meaningful work.”

Cambrian’s technology combines AI-enabled vision software and camera hardware, created as an add-on to robotic arms to improve their vision capabilities and help them complete more intricate tasks such as bin picking, pick and place, machine feeding, feature location and assembly.

The system is designed to operate in any lighting condition and can identify and organize objects made of a range of different materials, including plastic and metal.

“We are incredibly excited about the possibilities that our recent fundraising opens up,” said Miika Satori, Cambrian’s CEO. “Our primary goals are to enhance the scalability of the product and strengthen our sales and operations in our main target markets.

“In addition, we are bringing new AI-vision-based skills to robot arms, further pushing boundaries in the field of robotics. We are equally thrilled to begin collaborating with our new investors, whose support is pivotal in driving these advancements forward.”
