why are we here
To help organisations transcend into the 5th industrial revolution of human-machine coexistence
Back in 2008, we predicted that the future of organisations will be driven by autonomy, automation and human-machine co-existence. So we embarked on a journey to find new combinations of technology that can make it possible for people, machines and organisations to exist together. The challenge was to find a perfect recipe so all 3 could benefit simultaneously.
We saw that nothing had been done to solve this problem before, so we founded Grene Robotics to help organizations and people use drones, droids or intelligent machines to do their work. Grene Robotics was created to bring together people with a different attitude and tenacity to design, build and sell human-machine coexistence.
what do we do
GreneOS : Our AI Platform as a Service delivers Autonomous Organisations
We are designing and building an IoE Platform called GreneOS that will deliver Autonomous Organizations. IoE or Internet of Everything is the intelligent connection of people, process, data and machines.
We are focused on creating the world’s foremost technological breakthroughs that unlocks the power of Human-Machine collaboration so that we can liberate humans to focus on humanity and machines can master creativity, curiosity, complex decision making and empathy. GreneOS will unify people, machines and systems. It will automate processes and integrate systems on top of which autonomous applications are built for intelligent decision making for organizations globally.
How do we stay ahead of the curve
By questioning the status quo, and using R&D to change it.
We are focused on people and R&D to create the world’s foremost technological breakthroughs that unlock the power of unification, autonomy and Human-Machine collaboration. To stay ahead of the changing world, we upgrade our platform GreneOS every day. This helps unify people, machines, processes and systems. Our R&D will enable the gradual transition of humans to be on-the-process rather than in-the-process. We built applications and deployment layers that are fully backward and forward compatible to automatically upgrade our customer deployments as the platform upgrades.
where are we going
Bringing the focus back to Humans
In today’s world robots and people have no common language, communication or collaboration workspace. But tomorrow, organizations around the globe will be using GreneOS™ to help them transcend the 5th Industrial Revolution of human machine coexistence by bringing robots into the workforce.
By bringing machines into the workforce, enterprises will become customer centric. Defence Technology will be unmanned and Smart City technology will be citizen-focused. Imagine a day where smart cities are capable of making autonomous decisions based on the long term prosperity and sustainability of the most important stakeholder, the citizens. Cities will deliver services responsibly that are driven by real-time intelligence gathered from the citizens autonomously while ensuring their privacy.
Nature is the greatest engineer, we constantly look for inspiration in nature.
We like to challenge the status quo, take risks and shatter conventions.
Our greatest assets are our People and Patents.
To keep innovating is to keep growing.
Technology inspired by nature
We are endlessly inspired by the deeper vision of nature’s efficient design and intelligence
The Journey So Far
A little backstory….
Kiran’s (the founder) tryst with autonomous solutions started while he was at Carnegie Mellon University where he worked on building autonomous systems for the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), this experience left him thinking what autonomous solutions can do for different industries. Kiran entered the enterprise workforce with his first job at Pitney Bowes and got a first hand experience of how broken and inefficient today’s enterprise and government operations were. This led to the realisation that to bring robots into the workforce we will need a new breed of systems powered by autonomy.
2008 - 2011
IOT Platform to connect and unify things (IoT)
2008, we understood that enterprise data integrity was compromised by existing piecemeal systems and could not be used for autonomy. Collecting data without human intervention was the very first step to creating a new generation enterprise platform. We designed and developed an IoT platform that can deliver real time data.
In 2011, we deployed the platform to run India’s first autonomous smart micro-grid in partnership with Echelon, USA. Grene Robotics was able to achieve autonomous load balancing with smart meters within the housing community.
Platform expands to people through their smartphones
In 2012, we developed and deployed India’s first home automation platform to achieve intra & interoperability using IoT devices within a large gated community in partnership with Crestron, USA. It was called “Project Palm Meadows”
In 2014, we enhanced the platform to involve People, Process and Purpose. We understood the importance of people’s involvement in any process, hence enhancing the ability of the platform to connect to people through their smartphones was an ideal next step.
2015 - 2019
Platform expands to process management & system integrations
In 2015, we developed and deployed the platform to run nationwide emergency management by connecting, unifying and managing employees (45000), ambulances (12000), citizens (15 states) and hospitals (15 states). Platform helps deliver autonomous assignments and also helps with dispatch and navigation based on real-time operational intelligence. It was called “Project Blueflock”.
In 2017, we enhanced the platform for remote working. We predicted that remote work and virtual offices will become the future of work. Significantly reducing our carbon emissions and owning zero physical assets and liabilities as a company. Grene Robotics was the first company to use this and go fully virtual with zero office space. This was code named “Project Desker”.
GreneOS™ (the platform) replaces CRM for Telecom vertical
In 2019, GreneOS™ launches by replacing a mission critical order management system for Vodafone India.
GreneOS™ expands into Defence vertical
In 2021, GreneOS™ Defence is launched to deliver India’s first unified AC6ISRT platform. Two product spin-offs of the DefOS platform are Autonomous Manpad Data Link ( AMDL) and Indrajaal™ Autonomous drone defence system launched in partnership with Bharat Electronics Limited for the Indian Armed Forces. The partnership submitted its first suo-moto proposal of AMDL with the Indian AirForce.
