Swap Robotics was started in November 2019. It has quickly grown to become the clear world leader in outdoor robotics for multiple work purposes. As of Summer 2021 there were ten 100% electric, commercial-ready robots in the fleet, more than any other robotics companies for grass cutting & snow removal. This Winter 2021-2022, there are already more signed agreements for robotic snow plow & salting rentals than the rest of the industry combined. To date, we have performed paid work with over 25 customers for three categories of use-cases: robotic grass cutting, robotic sidewalk snow plowing & salting, and robotic sidewalk inspections.
We updated our name from "Top Hat Robotics" to "Swap Robotics" to prevent confusion with another Canadian tech company that provides education software (called Top Hat). The name, "Swap Robotics", refers to our fundamental design principle that the robots are able to swap attachments to enable several different use-cases for the robots.
We are actively engaged with regulators at the national, provincial and municipal levels, and provide leadership in how to effectively regulate sidewalk robots for work purposes. Our headquarters are in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. We have venture capital funding and are open to additional investment.
