Croatian inventors and visionaries have long enriched all areas of life and work with their unique ideas and solutions, and have improved almost every field of industry. Today, they continue to strengthen Croatia’s position on the world stage of technological development and the future of business. Gideon Brothers is a company that uses inventions and solutions to change the present and create the future. The company is a robotics and artificial intelligence company dedicated to developing autonomous mobile robots for storing and transporting goods.
Some of their clients include leading domestic and global groups. One of the co-founders of Gideon Brothers and the head of the Autonomous Technology Department Gideon introduced how this Croatian startup company changed the global pattern of warehouse process management and how to transform it from an idea to one with nearly 100 employees. Employee’s company brothers, doctor. Josip Cesic.
Gideon Brothers has focused on robotics from the beginning. In 2017, they recognized the shortcomings of the solution in the process automation market and saw their opportunities.
“We realize that the robot vehicles of the future will be powered by visual perception systems, just as we humans rely on our eyes, that is, the vision in all our activities. This is the concrete embodiment of the direction of our technological development-autonomy based on vision, Joseph Said: “For industrial environments, mobile robots have the strongest perception ability. “
This technology makes it possible for the first time to automate operations in unstructured warehouses, production and retail environments. Today, most of these facilities still rely on the manual work of a large number of people. Gideon Brothers’ technology can change this situation and take warehousing and transportation to a whole new level.
Even those who reward foresight, their ideas and perfect solutions will not be ignored, especially if they started as a small company, but full of potential. Regarding awards and recognition, Josip said: “In 2018, Start.Up was recognized as the best startup company in the field of logistics and mobility! Germany, organized by the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry Network. This is an award issued by the logistics jury At the famous London Founders Forum, we also won the title of “Best Artificial Intelligence Startup”. In the recent praise, we are particularly proud that ABI Research is one of the most outstanding global analysis companies in the field of technology. First, we have been rated as the best innovator, and we have been included in the selection of the top ten companies in the field of materials industrial robots.
The achievements and awards of Gideon Brothers once again prove that Croatia has become a recognized place for high-tech development. In the future, it will and should be one of the key export products. After this effort, the Croatian Artificial Intelligence Association CroAI conducted a first review of the Croatian AI market at the end of last year. From AI companies and startups to Croatia’s broader artificial intelligence ecosystem, Gideon Brothers has strengthened its position in the AI field. List and start-up companies in the field of industry and robotics.
The company surpassed the number of 70 full-time employees last year, and the success of its business and the fact that their robots work in some of the largest companies in the logistics, manufacturing and retail sectors on both sides of the Atlantic encourages them to further develop and get employed. Therefore, they plan to expand the size of the team and double the number of employees by increasing the number of employees before the end of this year.
Joseph said: “We have a strong team that can develop amazing technologies and solve a very special problem in the industrial environment, thus contributing to seemingly sustainable economic growth, just like a seemingly small Wheels.”
Regarding future plans, Josip said: “Our plan includes the development of a new solution based on a visual perception system. With this solution, our customers will be able to automate business processes that have not been automated until now. There is only unlimited Opportunity! Only 5% of global manual processes will be automated, and we see huge potential here-for companies that want to improve efficiency, and those who will get rid of manual labor, and can dedicate themselves to bring greater satisfaction For the employees who work, and add value.”
Challenges and obstacles are not unfamiliar to them, but with a strong team with clear vision and strong motivation, they say that there are no unsolvable problems. “For the Gideon brothers, the beginning of 2020 is extremely difficult-almost everything has stopped. However, the supply chain disruption has further increased awareness of the opportunities offered by new technologies like ours, and market interest is in a few It was restored after a month. On the other hand, in order to enable our customers and partners to obtain remote support, we have fully adapted to the way we work under the new conditions.”
We live in an era full of uncertainty and rapid change, which greatly affects all aspects of the business, last year and this year can definitely prove this. “We believe that today’s responsible business management needs to pay more attention to adjusting costs and the highest safety standards for the company and the business. Safety and trust are essential to all our stakeholders (including customers and employees, investors and the entire community) Important. As a company that has developed a new generation of technology for nearly a decade in the field of autonomous mobile robots that is developing the market, we must put safety first,” Josip said, talking about what it means to do business safely.
