Our Story

With this footing, Robotics Plus Ltd (RPL)...

With this footing, Robotics Plus Ltd (RPL) was established as a start-up company focused on developing Mechanisation, Automation, Robotics and Sensor (MARS) technologies for horticulture and other primary industries. We employ a modern technological approach to automation using advanced computer based design, embedded control systems and modern manufacturing processes that have enabled us to develop several world first technologies and deliver efficient solutions across a range of engineering disciplines.

Our team’s multidisciplinary background enables us to address complete systems not just individual sections.  We integrate the best technological solution(s) based on merit.  Although off-the-shelf components are used where possible, many components or systems are either too costly or not quite right for optimising performance.  We often develop our own arms and control systems to ensure we can meet all specifications, whether its speed, size, cost or other metric to ensure we can meet end-user requirements. By incorporating technology with strong end-user engagement and input RPL strives to create solutions tailored for the end-user, not what an engineer thinks an end-user might want.
