Brooks Automation: Precise Collaborative Robot Group
Precise Automation was founded by Brian Carlisle and Dr. Bruce Shimano, who have worked together in developing robot and control systems since meeting at Stanford in 1975. Prior to Precise they founded Adept Technology and grew it to sales of $120 million. Precise has developed a line of “Collaborative” robots which can work together with people without injuring them if there is a collision. Collaborative robotics is the fastest growing segment in the robot market. Precise sells robots, controls, and machine vision worldwide. Precise became part of Brooks Automation in 2021. Brooks is a 1 $Billion automation company that makes semiconductor robots and now collaborative robots with the acquisition of Precise.
