Southie Autonomy


Southie Autonomy offers intelligent robot software that enables any industrial robot to be re-purposed and re-deployed by any worker, even those without robotics expertise or even computer skills. The “No-Code” software platform Southie has created for robot arms drastically changes the cost model, allowing distribution packagers to affordably automate manual tasks as fast as their processes change.
