Let Us Build Your Smart Robot
Robotics and Automation are dramatically reshaping the global
economy. Harness the power of smart robots for your business.
How We Help
At Motius, we have excellent hardware and software competence.
Our team of specialists is excited to work on your solution.
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.
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.
With the hardware and software development support for our autonomous LED walls, we feel we are in very good hands with Motius. The pragmatic, reliable, and above all highly professional cooperation inspires us over and over again! And: Last but not least – it’s fun working with these guys
— Volker Zetsche, CEO AUMOVIS
With emerging technologies and talented people, Motius approaches problems in a unique way. They helped us to first explore the whole range of cutting-edge technological solutions and then get to the outcome that we defined in the very beginning.

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.
Industrial Robot Arm – Motius Discovery Conference
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” this week. “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.
