A Romanian has become a member of the European Association of Robotics’s (euRobotics) management board for the first time, namely Ana-Maria Stancu, CEO of the first start-up company in Romania operating in the services humanoid robots market, reads a press release of the Romanian company.
The members of the General Assembly of euRobotics appointed two new members in their management board on March 19.
Ana-Maria Stancu is CEO of the Bucharest Promo Robots company – the first start-up in Romania operating on the services humanoid robots market. The company was launched as part of the programme Start-up Nation and offers three types of services at this point: rental of services humanoid robots for events or companies, making of personalized applications for robots and their distribution in Romania.
‘This is a very important achievement for Romania and also for South-East Europe, which didn’t have any representative in the management body of the most important organisation of robotics in the European Union,’ stated Ana Maria Stancu, CEO and Robot Fleet Admiral at Bucharest Promo Robots.
According to the most recent reports regarding the world robotics industry, the humanoid robots market will increase from 320.3 million US dollars, the current value, up to 3.9 billion, until 2023. This growth is due, on the one hand, to the constant development of the capability of robots, as well as to their increasingly more accessible prices, and also due to the changes happening in our society.
euRobotics is a non-profit organisation headquartered in Brussels, with its objective being the development of robotics to the benefit of the European economy and society. With more than 250 members, euRobotics offers to the robotics community an instrument called SPARC, of collaboration under a public-private partnership with the European Commission.
Bucharest Promo Robots SRL is the first Romanian Start-Up that offers rental and purchase of humanoid robots, as well as RaaS services. RaaS (Robotics as a Service) is a cloud computing unit that facilitates the seamless integration of robot and embedded devices into Web and Cloud computing environment.
RaaS leverages the Cloud and makes it possible for organizations to integrate robots and embedded devices into the web cloud computing environments. With Raas, data captured by robots – such as customer preferences or inventory status – can be stored on a cloud-based system and retrieved as needed by human workers.
