Refraction AI Raises $4.2 Million to Accelerate Reliable, Affordable, Sustainable Last-Mile Robot Delivery for the Masses


News Image

With new capital, the company plans to expand both the geographic and industry reach of its last-mile delivery as a service offering.

Refraction AI, the robotics startup and creator of the REV-1, a low-cost, lightweight autonomous delivery robot, today announced $4.2 million in new seed funding led by Pillar VC [Pillar VC __title__ https://www.pillar.vc/ . The capital will be used for customer acquisition, geographic expansion and product development.

Founded in July 2019, Refraction AI solves last-mile delivery logistics with a practical, economical and sustainable application of mobile robot technology. Recent market reports* estimate compound annual growth in the last-mile delivery sector over the next 10 years will exceed 14 percent, with the autonomous delivery segment projected to grow at over 24 percent from $11.9 billion in 2021 to more than $84 billion globally by 2031. For many, the COVID-19 pandemic has made home delivery of food, medicine and other necessities directly from retailers and restaurants a necessity. The Refraction REV-1 autonomous delivery robot is the ideal way for restaurants, grocers and other retailers to benefit from these trends reliably, affordably and sustainably.

“Last-mile delivery is the quintessential example of a sector that is ripe for innovation, owing to a powerful confluence of advancing technology, demographics, social values and consumer models. Conventional approaches have left businesses and consumers with few choices in this new environment as they struggle to keep pace with surging demand – burdened by the costs, regulatory, and logistical challenges of a legacy infrastructure,” said Luke Schneider, who took the helm as CEO of Refraction AI in fall 2020. “Our platform uses technology that exists today in an innovative way, to get people the things they need, when they need them, where they live. And we’re doing so in a way that reduces business’ costs, makes roads less congested, and eliminates carbon emissions.”

In addition to Pillar VC, the round was filled out by a syndicate of investors including eLab Ventures, Osage Venture Partners, Trucks Venture Capital, Alumni Ventures Group, Chad Laurans (founder of SimpliSafe), Invest Michigan, and others.

“With a tremendous potential to impact the future of last-mile goods delivery, Refraction AI is incredibly well-positioned because their solution is up and running today,” said Jamie Goldstein, founder and partner of Pillar VC. “We believe Refraction AI will create the de facto standard for this rapidly-expanding category; the combination of technology, momentum and leadership makes the company poised to break down barriers to AV for any business, which in turn increases access to goods for households that need them.”

Since its inception, Refraction AI has deployed the first application of its technology serving restaurants and grocery stores in its Ann Arbor, MI location. With new capital, the company plans to expand both the geographic and industry reach of its last-mile delivery as a service offering.

Refraction AI has recently expanded its office and production space for a growing team. For open job listings and information on partnering, please visit https://refraction.ai/.

Lepide Data Security Platform 21.1 Now Scales Better Than Any Other Solution in the Market


Lepide Logo

Lepide

We can quickly build you a personalized plan on how to roll the solution out based upon what you would like to achieve first, ultimately resulting in a quicker time to value (and making the life of our engineers super easy in the process). It doesn’t get any better than that.

Over the years, Lepide have come to understand the challenges customers are experiencing with other Data Security Platforms, and have taken it all on board. With the Lepide Data Security Platform 21.1, Lepide decided to completely overhaul how their solution scales, to better serve their customers’ needs.

In organizations that have a large number of unstructured data stores, security teams have really struggled with how other solutions on the market scale. Again and again the team at Lepide would hear phrases like, “it just doesn’t scale,” “it requires too many resources,” and “performance starts degrading and the alerts are too slow.”

To combat this, Lepide have now designed a “functionality orientated” architecture, meaning customers can apply isolated resources directly to the area of risk or focus at that time. This means, as your data centric security or access governance project evolves, the customer’s solution can too!

The benefits include:

  • Priority based scaling: Ensures customers have a way of applying the resources to the functionality that solves the biggest problem, whether it is better understanding who has excessive privileges, identifying ransomware attacks, detecting and preventing data breaches and incidents, or spotting privilege abuse in motion.
  • Affordable implementation costs: By focusing specifically on the area that matters the most in order of priority, customers won’t need to commit to heavy infrastructural costs upfront in order to deploy the whole solution. Lepide DSP was already the most lightweight Data Security Platform on the market, now the team at Lepide have made it even more affordable!

“Being able to prioritize the functionality that can solve the biggest problems for you is great news for all of us,” says Philip Robinson, Head of Marketing at Lepide. “It means we can quickly build you a personalized plan on how to roll the solution out based upon what you would like to achieve first, ultimately resulting in a quicker time to value (and making the life of our engineers super easy in the process). It doesn’t get any better than that.”

In addition to the implementation of enterprise scalability, the Lepide Data Security Platform 21.1 enables security teams to report on open AWS S3 open buckets, report on permissions in OneDrive and automatically discover open shares.

New Video Doorbell Expands User’s View While Eliminating False Alerts


Photo of text image notification from Guardian Protection's new Video Doorbell Pro

Guardian’s new Video Doorbell Pro texts alerts and has an expanded vertical view that captures a visual all the way to the doorstep or welcome mat.

“When answering the doorbell remotely, as many people now do, the Pro lets you touch a button on your smartphone to have the garage door go up or the front door unlock and allow your visitor entry without having to physically answer the door.”

Guardian Protection has launched a new product named “Video Doorbell Pro” which it says will eliminate frustrations often experienced with standard video doorbell cameras. The “Pro”, available to new and existing customers, has a vertically expanded field of view, video analytics that heighten people detection – including detection of those who lurk outside and don’t touch the doorbell – plus an advanced, high dynamic range that sharpens views both day and night.    

According to Vice President of Marketing Kevin Bish, the new Video Doorbell Pro enhances the overall smart home security experience with its higher 1440-x1920 resolution, increased 3,000 clips-per-month video storage, and ability to seamlessly interface with the other components in Guardian’s smart home security system.

Bish commented, “When answering the doorbell remotely, as many people now do, the Pro lets you touch a button on your smartphone to have the garage door go up or the front door unlock and allow your visitor entry without having to physically answer the door.” He added, “And because it focuses on alerting users to the presence of people, annoying notifications caused by the detection of cars and animals are largely eliminated. It’s a game changer and we’re proud to be able to install it in the homes of customers where its convenience can be fully enjoyed.”

In addition to an expanded vertical view allowing a homeowner to see the package that’s been delivered to the doorstep or welcome mat outside their door, the Pro lets users electronically “paint” a customized ground zone in any shape outlining the specific areas they want it to monitor, such as a driveway, steps to a porch, garden area, etc. When activity is detected, a notification is sent within seconds to the homeowner, and then live video can be viewed on the Guardian mobile App or a computer, whichever is preferred.

Other cutting-edge features of the new Video Doorbell Pro include a built-in battery heater that ensures operation in very cold weather, dual-band 5GHz and 2.4GHz to accommodate variables in Wi-Fi service, and two-way seamless audio allowing users to talk and listen at the same time, unlike the old walkie-talkie functionality of other video doorbells.

“Our mission is to make homes and businesses safer, smarter, and more connected for the people who live and work there, and our Video Doorbell Pro is just another way that we are accomplishing that mission,” said Bish.

Guardian offers the Video Doorbell Pro as an add-on to its monitored smart home security systems in all regions that it serves and through its network of authorized dealers.
