Head of People - OTTO Motors

Founded in 2009, Clearpath Robotics started in a basement by four friends who loved building robots. After persisting, failing, iterating and finally succeeding on the build of their first unmanned vehicle, Clearpath Robotics was born out of a desire to make robotics research much easier.

As the company developed, Clearpath began developing platforms for specific customer needs. A solution for Industrial Manufacturing & Materials Movement uncovered a large market opportunity and in 2013, the OTTO Motors product line was born.

Clearpath Robotics, and their self-driving fleet of research robots, still exist and are thriving in this niche market.

OTTO Motors has evolved, creating self-driving robots for manufacturing and materials management industries. The tech is revolutionary and the solutions poised to redefine the multi-billion dollar manufacturing, warehousing, and materials management market.
