Company Wins Innovation Award 

Squishy Robotics garnered one of the inaugural “Good Robot” Industry Awards presented by the non-profit industry association, Silicon Valley Robotics (SVR). The SVR Industry Awards celebrate the robotics, automation, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) that will help the world solve global challenges. In announcing the winners earlier this week on December 14, SVR wrote that all awardees were working to “improve the quality of our lives.”

“We are delighted that SVR honored Squishy Robotics with an Innovation Award,” said company co-founder and CEO Dr. Alice Agogino. “We are very pleased to be among the companies highlighted for their efforts to protect community members and are grateful that SVR recognizes the importance of how our mobile sensor robots can help protect first responders, HazMat team members, and the general public.”  

As a non-profit industry association, Silicon Valley Robotics (SVR) supports the innovation and commercialization of robotics technologies. Founded in 2010, this is the inaugural year for the non-profit’s “Good Robot” Industry Awards. More information about the awards as well as the complete list of the 2020 awardees can be found here.

Successful CRADA Drop Testing 

The U.S. Army has performed the third round of multiple high-altitude drop tests of Squishy Robotics sensor robots over the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. Such testing is part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Soldier Center (CCDC). Robots of various weights and sizes were included in the testing that took place last month.  

Lead Mechatronics Engineer Douglas Hutchings was pleased with the testing results. “All robot models withstood the impact of the high-altitude airdrops,” Hutchings said. “Testing showed that our R&D work on robot self-righting—landing with a predicted orientation—is reproducible at drop heights of up to 1,000 feet.”
