Introducing Waypoint Robotics

NH-based Robotics Company to Specialize in Turnkey Autonomous Mobile Robots

March 12, 2018 (Merrimack, NH) — Introducing Waypoint Robotics, a NH-based startup — formerly known as Stanley Robotics — focused on building robots for real-world applications to empower the workforce.

Jason Walker, CEO and Co-Founder of Waypoint Robotics, said the company will continue to follow the same culture and standards of innovation, manufacturing excellence, customer service, and dedication to employees as the companies from which they spun off — Stanley Innovation and Stanley Elevator.

“At Waypoint, we are laser-focused on developing autonomous mobile robots that are accessible to everyone who needs them,” said Walker. “In the USA, only about 10% of the companies that could be helped by automation are taking advantage of the technology. With the pressures of the global economy and the tightening labor market, small businesses must automate to survive. Our goal is to make robots that are technologically and financially accessible to small and large businesses alike.”

Waypoint’s flagship mobile robot — Vector — is a compact, ROS native, omni-directional, mobile robot; perfect for the laboratory or factory floor. Vector comes fully equipped and ready for use — a truly turnkey autonomous robot.

Walker said Waypoint’s robots are not only being used as platforms for the latest robotics research projects taking place at today’s top colleges and universities, but they are also already hard at work in manufacturing, industrial, and commercial facilities.

“Until now, if you wanted to have a robot in your shop, you needed to have a roboticist to go with it,” said Walker. “We are making robots so simple that they can be setup and used by a shipping & receiving clerk just as easily as a forklift or pallet jack. These robots aren’t meant to replace our great American workforce — they are meant to empower them.”

Included in the rebranding effort is a renewed focus on a completely redesigned website (
