About Automata
Automata is a London-based robotics start-up. Our mission is to democratise robotics and deploy automation solutions at scale in all levels of manufacturing and industry. We are doing this by making robotics a technology that is very simple to self integrate: that means no need for expert workforce or third party contractors.

We have developed a robotic arm, Eva, at a much lower market price point: Eva costs £4990, whereas current robotic arms on the market cost in excess of £15,000. Eva is designed to take on repetitive tasks in manufacturing, either solo or part of a bigger automated manufacturing line and can be easily programmed and re-programmed by a human controller. Our super-user-friendly software, Choreograph, makes all that possible by enabling the robot to be as plug and play as possible.
