With customers on three continents, Avidbots continues to refine and enhance Neo, while the company itself is growing rapidly at our base in Kitchener, Ontario.
The Squeaky prototype was the first robot designed and built by Avidbots from the ground up. It featured a cylindrical cleaning head plus an innovative bladder system to separate clean and dirty water. Powered by a small lithium ion battery, Squeaky had an average run time of 1.5 hours.
With a mission to help maximise human potential through robotics, Pablo Molina and Faizan Sheikh founded Avidbots on January 15th 2014. Their goal was to bring robots into more practical applications in everyday settings. The founders initially explored automated snow clearing, but quickly realised that indoor commercial floor cleaning offered a more compelling application for robotics.
