RRAI is the commercial division of Robotic Research––a global technology company that has delivered autonomous mobility and robotics solutions for more than two decades. Robotic Research was started by industry pioneers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It has grown to be a household name in both commercial and defense autonomous operations, with achievements such as the deployment of the first automated heavy duty transit bus deployed in revenue service, and the world’s largest end-user-operated fleet of autonomous logistics trucks.
