OffWorld is now selling autonomous industrial mining robots in countries around the world. The company’s revolutionary systems enable intelligent multi-robot operations at mining sites including extreme or unchartered ore bodies.
PASADENA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OffWorld is the global pioneer in AI-powered industrial Swarm Robotic Mining systems and they are now taking orders for delivery of multi-species deployments commencing in 2024. The new line of robot species is built for surveying environments (on the surface and deep underground), performing precision excavation, and collecting, hauling, and processing material. The company is demonstrating that swarm robotic mining improves customer productivity and cost efficiency.
The user-friendly robots work in squads and can produce from hundreds of tons to well over one million tons of ore annually in a single mining operation allowing for previously unattainable versatility in new mine operations within months instead of years. They are rugged, autonomous, and can work around the clock. Their unrivaled software architecture leverages machine learning allowing them to work with and eventually learn from human experts. With the future of the planet in mind, the application of these fully electric robotic mining swarms will leave a zero-mining carbon footprint behind, replacing the use of explosives with precision mining, and will save human lives by removing them from dangerous work conditions for years to come.
OffWorld is ISO 9001 certified and has developed groundbreaking IP including directed beam energy technology for weakening and preconditioning material before extraction. The company has already secured multi-year contracts with top-tier mining companies around the world, and will also be adapting the multi-species robots to provide solutions across other industries including construction, infrastructure, utilities, and space.
Jim Keravala, OffWorld Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder said: “We’re thrilled to offer swarms of intelligent robots to our customers. We have worked tirelessly for the past seven years to make today a reality. We are disrupting the conventional mining industry for the better; saving human lives, lowering our carbon footprint, transforming the economics of distressed assets and hard to mine ore, while also creating new jobs in machine programming, artificial intelligence, engineering, deployment, and extreme operations. We are looking forward to applying our multi-robot operations in every corner of the planet and are humbled to help play an important role in designing the future.”
