London robotics software developer SLAMcore is expanding into the Korean and Chinese markets with business development consultancy Intralink.
The partnership allows SLAMcore, which in May raised $16m, to explore new business opportunities with developers of autonomous robotics and mixed reality markets across Asia.
It sees robots as on the brink of becoming mainstream, and as the metaverse emerging through wearable VR, AR and mixed reality headsets. SLAMcore provides millimetre accurate positioning with low-power, high-performance processors and low-cost cameras.
Intralink’s teams in Seoul and Shanghai will bring SLAMcore’s cutting-edge localisation and mapping algorithms to product designers in Korea and China.
Intralink is a UK-headquartered international business development company with specialists on the ground in Asia helping western tech firms expand in the region by forging partnerships and securing customer deals.
“Robots and the metaverse have huge potential to help solve significant real-world challenges in many areas. Spatial intelligence is fundamental to these applications, and we’re on a mission to make it accessible to as many as possible,” said SLAMcore’s CEO, Owen Nicholson. “Intralink gives us an important in-road to the critical markets where innovators are creating next generation products that can leverage this potential. We’re looking forward to meeting many new customers thanks to Intralink’s expertise and connections in the region.”
Daniel Kollar, Shanghai-based Head of Mobility at Intralink, added: “SLAMcore perfectly fits the profile for successful scale up businesses ready to do business in Asia. It has a unique proposition, a robust business model and there are wide-ranging applications for its technology across manufacturing, transportation, medicine, logistics, agriculture, entertainment and more… We’re excited to be representing the company in Korea and China.”
