At DROIDZ, we believe in pushing the limits of the status quo to master the automation industry. We are focused on creating low-cost aerial, unmanned ground vehicles, and humanoid robotics systems, which includes a training program and service for sharing the training data using our DROIDZ AmpOS platform.

Humanoid robotics systems delivers the most flexibility for automating human tasks and warrants automation for smaller manufacturers and extreme product customization. This solution grants remote operation of robotics for experts that can’t travel and operation in environments unsafe for humans. DROIDZ is setting a new price/capability point for general purpose robotics, enabling human robot operation to train the robot for autonomous operation, and sharing that training via Robotics as a Service (RaaS).
