UVL Robotics, a domestic start-up company, is developing autonomous drones for warehousing.
The UVL Robotics team is said to have developed and already completed successful tests for two of its drone systems, and is also testing the systems further in partnership with seven companies.
“Our plans include commercial services in inventory management. Customers include large-scale 3PL operators, FMCG sector players and retail chains. In the long term, we want to establish presence in the international target markets through active interaction with western logistic companies,” UVL Robotics CEO Evgeniy Grankin said.
Earlier this year Russian VCs at Phystech Ventures in Moscow invested $300K in UVL Robotics for the preparation and launch of the small-scale manufacture of autonomous drones, and for marketing needs.
