Our Team

Francisco Suárez-Ruiz (Co-founder)
Francisco was born in Bogotá, Colombia. He holds a Bachelor degree in Mechatronics Engineering from Universidad Autónoma de Bucaramanga (Colombia), and a M.S. and a Ph.D. in Automation and Robotics from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain). He used to be engineer at Schneider Electric and Siemens (Colombia) and visiting researcher at Technical University of Munich (Germany) and Harvard University (USA). Before founding Eureka Robotics, Francisco was a Research Fellow at NTU (Singapore). He was a member of Team CRI Group, which won the second prize at the Airbus Shopfloor Challenge at ICRA 2016.
Phạm Quang Cường (Co-founder)
Cường was born in Hanoi, Vietnam and grew up in Vietnam and then in France. He is an alumnus of École Normale Supérieure, rue d’Ulm (France) and holds a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Université Pierre et Marie Curie (France). He used to be a visiting researcher at the University of São Paulo (Brazil) and a JSPS Fellow at the University of Tokyo (Japan). He joined NTU (Singapore) as an Assistant Professor in 2013. He was a recipient of the Best Paper Award at the conference Robotics: Science and Systems, 2012. He was a member of Team CRI Group, which won the second prize at the Airbus Shopfloor Challenge at ICRA 2016.
Jean-Paul Laumond (Advisor)
Jean-Paul Laumond, IEEE Fellow, is a pioneer of robot motion planning. He is currently Directeur de Recherche at LAAS-CNRS (team Gepetto) in Toulouse, France. In 2000, he founded Kineo CAM, a spin-off company from LAAS-CNRS devoted to develop and market motion planning technology. Kineo CAM was awarded the French Research Ministery prize for Innovation and Enterprise in 2000 and the third IEEE-IFR prize for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Robotics and Automation in 2005. Kineo CAM was acquired by Siemens in 2012. Jean-Paul was the 2011-2012 recipient of the Chaire Innovation Technologique Liliane Bettencourt at Collège de France in Paris. He is the 2016 recipient of the IEEE Inaba Technical Award for Innovation Leading to Production. He is a member of the French Academy of Technologies.
Jean-Jacques Slotine (Advisor)
Jean-Jacques Slotine is Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Information Sciences, Professor of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, and Director of the Nonlinear Systems Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA). He received his Ph.D. from MIT in 1983, at age 23. After working at Bell Labs in the computer research department, he joined the faculty at MIT in 1984. He was one of the highly cited researchers (ISI) in Engineering. His book, “Applied Nonlinear Control” (Prentice-Hall, 1991), is one of the most revered and cited textbooks in Control Theory. He is the 2016 recipient of the Rufus Oldenburger Medal from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Technology

We provide cost-effective robotic systems to automate ​unpredictable tasks that may require a certain​ ​level​ ​of​ ​​contact​​ ​force​ ​control. “Unpredictable tasks” involve elements (environment, workpieces, etc.) whose positions in space are unknown a priori and therefore need to be determined during task execution, using for instance a vision system.

Our technology is based on the cutting-edge research in Robotics and AI conducted at CRI Group, NTU Singapore. It enables:

Airbus Challenge
Fast and millimeter-precise localization of task pieces using 3D vision: our system can deal with multiple objects​ ​(of​ ​different​ ​categories)​ ​simultaneously​ ​present​ ​in​ ​the​ ​scene
Airbus Challenge
Real-time motion planning: low computation time and optimized movement (speed and smoothness) of the robotic arm with no teaching required at set-up or when the environment changes
Intuitive, user-friendly, interface
Intuitive, user-friendly, interface

One of the systems we developed, a robotic drilling platform, won the second prize at the Airbus Shopfloor Challenge organized by Airbus Group.

Our technology is based on research that is published in top Robotics conferences and journals.
