Robots for the People

Breakthroughs in everything from automobiles education and healthcare are accelerating the pace at which we innovate.  But it’s no longer big companies and prestigious Universities who have the innovation advantage. It’s people just like you.

ROBAUTO is enabling a global effort to accelerate innovation in robotics and A.I. by providing a. low-cost yet powerful robotics platform called BiBli®.

ROBAUTO was founded in 2013 by Jalali Hartman with the mission to enable communities to leverage robotics to create their own problem-solving robots.

3 years later ROBAUTO provides aspiring robotics engineers the first low-cost swarm social robotics and A.I. platform – BiBli®.

At the core of everything – the BiBli Operating System. Designed to run on the familiar Raspberry Pi board BiBli OS® turns any $35 Pi into a roaming, media serving, talking quasi-intelligent robot. BiBli OS provides a full Linux experience with simple Python based code examples and an out-of-the-box swarm robotics software system. Add one robot or add a swarm to your home, school, research facility or library.
