About HRI

Humanistic Robotics, Inc. is dedicated to making the world safer and more efficient through the use of robotics, with total-system robotic integration and embedded electronics that help other robotic developers achieve their goals. HRI is presently focused on the development and manufacturing of an open-architecture control systems that enables complex system integration to happen at minimum cost and maximum flexibility. The first implementation of this control system is used to counter explosive threats affecting both soldiers and civilians in post-conflict environments. Our controls and safety systems continue to be integrated into a wide variety of applications including counter-IED and landmine clearance, construction, agriculture, and entertainment. We continue to develop products that increase the usability and safety of remotely operated and autonomous systems.
