Neural Ideas Inc. endeavors to develop and market modular robots which are affordable, innovative and adaptable to virtually any task. These robots have potential uses in domestics, industry, military, and even space exploration. They use neural networks, a means towards artificial intelligence, to make complex decisions. Our team consists of two degreed professionals with experience in robotic engineering and neurology, as well as an advisor who is an emeritus professor, with startup business incubator experience.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2011, 83% of women and 65% of men respectively spent 2.6 and 2.1 hours a day on housework. This averages approximately 52,700 man years per day in the US spent on repetitive tasks. In industry, robots are used in many manufacturing and hazardous conditions. These robots require costly programming by a qualified engineer. They are limited in functionality to their preprogrammed tasks. In the military, robots are used primarily for reconnaissance or bomb disposal.
Neural Ideas Inc. is developing modular robots for uses in domestic, industrial, and governmental markets. Modular robots are comprised of individual parts, or modules. When these modules combine together, they are able to form any physical shape allowing for great diversity in application. They can become a complex humanoid form to perform household chores, heavy industrial tasks, and serve in military as combat support. The value of artificial intelligence gives the robot the ability to converse on a high level, allowing a layman to instruct it in its tasks.
The robotics market is expanding exponentially. According to a report by Markets and Markets, the service and personal robotics market in 2012 was $20.73B and is estimated to grow to $46.18B in 2017. The target market is professional men and women, those with children, corporations, the public sector, and the military. However, the uses for modular robotics utilizing neural networks are potentially unlimited.
Current competitors include the Honda Motors, iRobot, AB Electrolux, Sony, Fujitsu, Toyota, GeckkoSystems, Yujin Robot, ABB and Fanuc. These competitors are large corporations which have their own specialties. For example, iRobot and Electrolux focus towards domestic robotics which are limited to single functions such as vacuuming and moping. ABB and Fanuc both produce industrial robots, which, as mentioned before, require special programmers. Neural Ideas Inc. intends to use the adaptive nature of our modular robots to add functionality and increase user friendliness.
Neural Ideas Inc. intends to sell our robots to private customers, corporations and the government on a per module basis. Each module would retail at approximately $1, allowing customers to choose the size and complexity of the robot that fits their budget. This allows for the high cost of new technology to be quickly accepted into the mainstream markets. Within the first year after the product is launched, we forecast the total sales/leases to exceed 10 million modules, and 100 million in the second year.
