HAL Robotics is a London-based software company focusing on novel applications of robotics in manufacturing, construction, and creative industries.
Since 2014 we have been helping our clients in the UK, Europe, North America and Australasia innovate and get to market faster, by providing them with robust and highly flexible solutions to program, simulate, control and monitor processes involving industrial machinery.
As well as covering traditionally automated processes, we specialise in the programming of complex toolpaths, such as those required in additive manufacturing; highly variable jobs allowing production of small batches and unique items; and applications which require adapting robot tasks from various software ecosystems.
A unique technical approach
Underpinning our services is the HAL Robotics Framework, an extensible and modular software which facilitates inter-device communication, adaptive programming of robot tasks, and motion planning for one or many robots working together.
HAL Robotics have developed and tested the Framework in a variety of industries over the years, from aerospace to construction through food and beverage, ensuring that it can support any process asked of it.
Robotics, the easy way
This flexibility, whilst an advantage in its own right, also acts as the basis for our bespoke software solutions for novel processes or markets.
By tailoring solutions to clients’ existing expertise, we lower the barrier to entry for robot use and provide interfaces in terms that they understand with links to software they already use.
Enabling industry-ready R&D
HAL Robotics stays at the forefront of innovation through internal and collaborative R&D projects. We also provide flexible application prototyping tools to researchers, whatever their field, allowing them to focus on the research that drives them.
As well as accelerating and de-risking these experimental phases, using the same industry-ready tools in R&D endeavours guarantees that innovations are quick and easy to industrialise.
We believe that one doesn’t need to be a robotics expert to leverage automation.
Meet our founders
Chief Technology Officer
Thibault has been developing robot simulation software for the past 10 years. Trained as an architect, he actively participated in the democratisation of robotics in AEC and creative industries.
He has since passed his knowledge and passion for automation to dozens of researchers and professionals around the world, and stays comitted to crafting the best tools robot users can think of.
Chief Innovation Officer
Tristan combines his expertise in robotic application development with a strong academic background.
His research work combines mathematics, mechanics and architectural design with a special interest in robotics, haptic systems and kinetic architecture.
Chief Executive Officer
Having trained to be an architect and practiced for a number of years, Sebastian shifted his focus to robotics in 2013 to facilitate the adoption of digital automation within the construction, design and craft industries.
Sebastian specialises in Computaional Linguistics and Natural Human-Machine Interfaces.
Chief Robotics Officer
Rémi studied robotics and industrial production management in Paris and Tokyo before joining HAL Robotics.
His deep understanding of robots inner workings, augmented by his engineering background have given birth to HAL Robotics’ simulation engine.
