About Synthiam

Synthiam is an industry defining robot software development platform for everyone, regardless of previous software programming experience. Our customers include R&D PoC, DIY, enterprise businesses, manufacturers and educational institutions. Synthiam's platform focuses on the democratization of complicated technologies so advanced features can be effortlessly added to robots. Imagine what the world would be like if the Internet was limited to only software programmers because there were no web browsers or authoring tools. Well, that is how the robotics industry would be today without Synthiam's platform. Without Synthiam, only skilled programmers (less than 0.001% of the World’s population) qualify to program robotics using complicated conventional engineering tools.

It is our mission to democratize robotics by making robot programming accessible to anyone with an idea. Synthiam's software products give the power of easy robot programming tools to the hands of everyone; paving the way for a safer and healthier future of robot products.

Individual Products Overview

ARC (Autonomous Robot Control) Software

ARC is a graphical and easy-to-use robot development software suite. ARC provides an abstraction of common robot behaviors as re-usable modules, called skills. These skills are created by industry experts and published in Synthiam’s Skill Store to be used by robot builders and programmers.

Learn About ARC

Skill Store

The Skill Store functions like an App Store, apart from hosting a library of robot behaviors vs apps. Each reusable module is a technology, cloud service or sensor driver wrapped in a graphical skill control. Robot builders and programmers add skills from the Skill Store to their robots. This method of delivering technologies as skills enable users to quickly experiment and integrate features at an escalated rate vs. traditional syntax programming with APIs and SDKs.

Exosphere

Robots learn from example. Built to help us perform mundane or dangerous tasks. But, to do their job right, they need to be taught. Exosphere was developed to give all robots the ability to perform autonomous tasks by controlling as much or little as necessary to help robot companies achieve their goals. All while training the global artificial intelligence knowledgebase of autonomous tasks with real-world examples.

Roll Out

Synthiam publishes open-source hardware reference designs on our GitHub Repo to help robot companies and manufacturers make new advanced hardware products. Our reference designs include advanced navigation systems, sensor arrays, EZB robot controllers and more. Save time and development cost by using Synthiam source-available reference designs to make robot hardware products!

EZB Robot Firmwares

There's many microcontroller and developer kits available in the market. Synthiam has developed a variety of firmwares that install on these devices to make them compatible with our ARC Software. When a microcontroller is connected to ARC, it is referred to as an EZB. An EZB is any robot computer or microcontroller that accepts connections from Synthiam's ARC software to control servos, sensors, and more.
