Robotics for the Benefit of All

We are a South Pacific innovation lab that focuses on solving local challenges and needs through the use of appropriate robotics & AI technologies.

What we do

We act as an expert’s center to develop local capacity for the use of appropriate robotics solutions in humanitarian, development, health and environmental efforts in the South Pacific region.

We provide training, equipment and data processing expertise and will help incubate new local drone-based service providers. We foster local demand by working together with local, national and international organisations in conducting robotics-related projects.

As a non-profit organisation, we focus on projects that directly benefit human life and the surrounding natural environment.
