Seegrid Logo
Seegrid Corporation was founded in Pittsburgh, PA in February 2003 as a spinout of Carnegie Mellon University’s Mobile Robot Lab. Dr. Hans Moravec and Dr. Scott Friedman co-founded Seegrid to develop a new class of affordable industrial mobile robots that operate reliably in dynamic environments. Seegrid’s core Industrial Mobile Robotics (IMR) technology has more than 30 years of innovation and research behind it and overcomes the traditional hurdles of robotic adoption.
sen SenSevere is commercializing a novel chemical sensor technology that is capable of withstanding severe conditions. The overarching goal is to deploy sensors within process streams that contain elevated temperature/pressure and extremely corrosive elements. Direct measurement of process conditions within industrial applications that contain such conditions will lead to improved feedback systems, and ultimately, enhanced safety and efficiency.
Sensible Machines Sensible machines is commercializing position, navigation and vehicle control systems for antonymous land vehicles in landscaping, agriculture and recreation markets.  These advanced technologies, developed at Carnegie Mellon's National Robotics Engineering Center, allow for percision positioning and operation in the centimeter scale over areas measured in hundereds of meters or in kilometers.
sharpedge Sharp Edge is bringing a new class of targeted biosensors to the cellular biology research community. Fluorogenic Activating Protein (or FAPs) provide a more accurate and detailed detection method for cellular changes that is amendable to high-throughput screening and more detailed follow-up. While we work on extending our web-content, we've provided a collection of the primary literature references for the technologies here.
spectra SpectraGenetics is an innovative gene tagging company providing proprietary and breakthrough technologies for drug discovery and development.  These technologies allow researchers to accurately determine when a gene is expressed and to visualize in real time the expression, cellular localization or activation of proteins in living cells.  This information has the potential to transform the drug discovery and development process by providing significant productivity improvements in identifying suitable targets and leads for therapeutic development.
