CommonSense Robotics raises $6m in seed funding

CommonSense Robotics – an Israel-based company which is looking to “build on-demand supply-chains that enable sustainable, 1-hour delivery to online customers” – has raised $6m in seed funding from Aleph VC and Innovation Endeavors. The company’s website does give much away about how the system would work. It invites the curious visitor to “imagine a world of small robots. Hundreds of them. Moving things around. In a really smart way.” And then adds cryptically: “That’s a reality at CommonSense Robotics.”

However, an article published on TechCrunch today (1 August) gives a bit more detail.

According to TechCrunch, CommonSense Robotics is looking to deploy “micro-fulfillment centers” located within retailers’ own bricks and mortar stores.

These will use robotics and AI to “automate the preparation of orders, including receiving inventory, picking orders and packing them”.

The actual delivery will be left to the retailers, or their logistics partners.

On its LinkedIn page, CommonSense Robotics says its Micro-Fulfillment-Center “is an urban, automated fulfillment solution that combines the benefits of local distribution with the economics of automated fulfillment, and is re-defining the way goods are fulfilled and delivered within cities”.

CommonSense Robotics was founded in 2015 by Eyal Goren, Ori Avraham, Shay Cohen and Elram Goren.
