Main Slider 1

To cope with a high demand of automation
in the logistics and production industry,
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) have
become more and more present in
warehouses and production facilities.

Autonomous Mobile Robots

Main Slider 2

Robot arms can be used for production,
quality assurance, or tons of other repetitive tasks.
We have experience with building industrial
applications in the area of self-learning
bin-picking and palletizing robots.

Robot Arms

Main Slide 3

Enabling robots with intelligent behavior is
understood as a system that endows the robot
with the ability to perceive, comprehend, and
reason about the surrounding environment. The
key components of a perception system are
essentially sensory data processing, data
representation (environment modeling),
and ML-based algorithms.

Cognition and Perception

Main Slide 3

We apply bionic design to generate robot
components. These lightweight and robust
structures give the robot agility while
decrease the power consumption.
This overall increases the performance
in each movement.

Ultra-Lightweight Robot Structures

Let’s Redefine the Future
of Your Business

At Motius, we believe that new technologies and digital applications are the backbones of intelligent automation. 

Driven by a combination of falling prices and the rising practicality cases, “smart” robots can now be deployed at scale as well as niche applications – and harnessed for an ever-increasing number of ever more complex tasks.

In addition, collaborative robots are enabling closer interaction and collaboration between humans and machines in various environments. Based on these and various other trends robotics and automation are dramatically reshaping the global economy.

Through individual configurations, previously manual, time-consuming, rule-based, and recurring tasks can be automated to increase efficiency and quality and therefore reduce costs. We are helping our clients use the newest technologies to change the way they work.

Success Stories

Robotic Innovation With the AUMOVIS LED Wall

In the event industry, similar products do not exist. This resulted in the development process of the LED wall starting from scratch. During the agile product development, the costs had to be kept low while a high-tech solution was designed. The physical limitations on the hardware side and the specific safety requirements this product demands were further challenges. The multidisciplinary Motius team selected for this project was on a strict timeline and outperformed in the complex robotics involved. The final AUMOVIS LED wall is now Dekra certified, which is one of the most important testing quality labels. It is also supported as a significant innovation by the German Government.

Optimizing the Maintenance Process of Damaged Airfoils

Repairing aircrafts from foreign object damages (FODs) is crucial, yet complex and complicated. MTU, Germany’s leading engine manufacturer, aimed for an automated solution with the potential to check and repair FODs quickly, reliably, and efficiently. In this project, Motius developed a proof of concept to show that a miniature robot arm enables the automation of the process with its complex technological requirements.

Self-made Automated Guided Vehicles – Business Case Developed By Motius

To cope with a high demand for automation in the logistics and production industry, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) have been becoming more and more present in warehouses and production facilities. We created a business case for our customer to build their own Automated Guided Vehicle and designed its architecture integrating state-of-the-art low-cost components and technologies.

Discovery Week 2021

Industrial Robot Arm – Motius Discovery Conference

Discovery is our internal hackathon, where we experiment with some of the latest tech trends. It is one of the actions we take in order to stay close to cutting-edge solutions.

As part of our first Discovery Week in 2021, we evaluated new ways to offer more affordable industrial robot arms to our customers. The result? Our Motee Nikolas Engelhardt evaluated “Horst”. “Horst” is not only a typical German first name but stands for “Highly Optimized Robotic Systems Technology.” Nikolas also explains the difference between “robots” and “cobots” (collaborative robots), their features, use cases, advantages, and disadvantages.

Client Voices

How We Work 

At Motius, we developed our own approach how to handle hardware projects which are heavily linked to software. We call it “Agile Systems Engineering”. We can work with you to develop a solution at any level of maturity – from concept development to product roll-outs.

Agile Systems Engineering and Rapid Prototyping


In the future, every piece of hardware will also have a software component. This makes fast prototyping with short iteration cycles even more important. However, this is also a major challenge, since there are usually significantly more dependencies when it comes to hardware: Are the required parts in stock? How long are the shipping times? Does the hardware really meet the requirements? And when do you plan to place orders?
So rapid prototyping is a real challenge. Robotics is mostly about complex products, which are made up of elements from interdisciplinary fields. Motius allows you to enable fast development and test cycles as well as enormously high user interaction and feedback cycles. We establish common agile software practices in our hardware projects..

Motius Project Stages


No matter how well defined your project idea is, we can work it out together. You can approach us with an existing problem, an existing product, or just an initial idea. Depending on the initial stage, we will ideate with you to understand your problem and to sketch the best approach for integrating emerging technologies. Our stages range from ideation & concept development, system design, proof of concept, and minimum viable product to whole product roll-outs. We also provide a support phase after the roll-out, to make sure your solution is perfectly integrated.
