About Us

Gather AI is a supply chain robotics company founded by the PhDs from Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute who created the world’s first provably-safe autonomous helicopter.  We have developed an Inventory-as-a -Service platform where fully autonomous drones collect warehouse inventory data at a press of a button.

This is an essential problem to solve as the warehouses we serve have typically misplaced over 10% of their inventory worth $10+ million dollars (seriously!). Their current manual techniques for taking inventory are falling down due the e-commerce boom brought on by COVID, and made worse due to the labor shortage and 70% annual staff turnover. Our drones take inventory 15x faster than humans with over 95% accuracy. We deliver this data through our web dashboard, which acts as a DVR for their warehouse where they run their inventory operation.  We are the leader in this new market with proven technology. Our drones are live in a dozen warehouses and have scanned over 150k pallet locations.

We are a pure-software robotics company and our key innovation is the world’s only autonomy and machine learning engine that can solve this problem with commodity hardware in GPS-denied environments. That means we avoid all of the hardware development pitfalls of traditional robotics companies and we can scale 10x faster. The robotics industry is starting to enter its “Google era,” and we are leading the charge.
