About Synthiam

Did you know the leading failure of robot companies is the high cost of full-stack product development? Robot companies use between 90 and 100 percent of their funding toward full-stack engineering during product development. Due to expensive full-stack robot development costs, sales revenue cannot cover enhancements, operations, marketing, inventory, and customer support.

"Synthiam is not a robot company; we empower robot companies to be successful."

Synthiam is an industry-defining robot software development platform for everyone, regardless of programming experience. Our customers include R&D PoC, DIY, enterprise businesses, manufacturers, and educational institutions. Synthiam's platform democratizes complicated technologies so that robot builder customers can save time and money when making robots.

Industry Impact Comparison

Imagine if the Internet was limited to software programmers because there were no web browsers or authoring tools such as Chrome or Wix? Well, that is how the robotics industry would be without Synthiam's platform. Without Synthiam, only skilled programmers (less than 0.001% of the World's population) qualify to make robots using complicated conventional engineering tools.

Mission

Our mission is to democratize robotics by making robot programming easy, accessible, and cost-effective, thus paving the way for a sustainable future of robot products.

ARC (Autonomous Robot Control) Software

ARC is a graphical and easy-to-use robot programming 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 customers 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 and are designed to help us perform mundane or dangerous tasks. But, to do their job right, they need to be taught. We created Exosphere 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.

EZB Robot Firmwares

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