Humatics Named Leader in Robotics Industry by Robotics Business Review and IDC



Waltham, Massachusetts – May 14, 2019 – Humatics Corporation (, the pioneer in microlocation products and software, today announced that Robotics Business Review named it to the coveted RBR50 list for the fourth consecutive year. The RBR50 is an international compilation of 50 of the most innovative and transformative companies in the robotics industry that have achieved commercial success in the past year. Robotics Business Review partnered with International Data Corporation (IDC) to select this year’s winners.


“At Humatics, we’re honored to be recognized as a leader in the robotics space by Robotics Business Review and IDC,” said David Mindell, CEO and Co-Founder of Humatics. “We are thrilled about the feedback, growth and development our company has achieved over the past year – particularly in the robotics space, where our innovative microlocation technology solves critical navigational challenges faced by mobile robots. We look forward to continuing to drive greater efficiency, productivity and safety for our robotics partners in 2019 and beyond.”

For eight years, the RBR50 list has been comprised of the most influential public and private companies from commercial and industrial robotics categories, including component makers, collaborative robotics, autonomous mobile robots, artificial intelligence, healthcare and service robotics, and more. Robotics Business Review’s editorial team and IDC researched and reviewed numerous submissions and selected the 2019 leading 50 companies based on their groundbreaking applications, market influence, and industry potential – with an eye towards representing many levels and facets of the global robotics ecosystem.

“We’re proud to add Humatics to our RBR50 list of top robotics companies in the world,” said Keith Shaw, Editor-in-Chief of Robotics Business Review. “Humatics doesn’t make robots, but Humatics’ technology will greatly benefit other robotics companies with high precision capabilities, making it a worthy inclusion to the RBR50 2019.”

Customers around the world use Humatics’ microlocation technology to make mobile robots such as AGVs smarter and location-aware. Existing navigational systems such as magnetic tape and fiducial-based systems offer less flexibility than Humatics’ technology and can limit robot capabilities in highly dynamic environments such as warehouses. The Humatics Spatial Intelligence Platform™ combines hardware, software and analytics to help robots navigate more autonomously with seamless operation — both indoors and outdoors in all weather conditions in rapidly changing environments.

All of the 2019 RBR50 companies are listed in an exclusive database available to Robotics Business Review Insiders. A dedicated webcast later this year will also discuss this year’s RBR50 selections. To access the complete 2019 RBR50 report, visit
