Industrial Automation Services

We specialize in designing end-to-end automation solutions for niche, hard-to-automate problems.

Proven Experience

Our team designed the AI for the first-ever cobot. Since then, we've focused our efforts on ensuring that the industrial automation products that we create maximize ROI and operational efficiency.

We are Fanuc-authorized integrators and we specialize in complex projects, especially in industries that have been resistant to automation.

We also the ideal team to solve your complex, smaller problems, where a completely customized solution is required. Our engineers can succeed where others have failed.

System Orchestration

We are experts at helping manufacturers orchestrate all of the moving parts in a modern factory.

We can design, develop, and support controls systems for complex operations that help robots and workers collaborate to ensure sustainable business operations.

Custom HMI Development

Maximizing OEE in a modern factory is critical to running a successful business.

Managers and operators need data presented in a way that enables lightning-fast decision making.

Our user-experience (UX) designers and engineers create intuitive interfaces that allow factories to operate at their maximum productivity levels by putting critical operating and performance data at their fingertips.

Selected Projects

ABB Robot Arm

ABB Robotics

The House of Design is a leading ABB Robotics Integrator specializing in pick and place automation systems. Go West provided engineering consulting services including a cloud-based OEE solution, custom application design and algorithm development.

The Baxter Co-Bot


Baxter is the first autonomous industrial robot (co-bot) built by Rethink Robotics, a company founded by Rodney Brooks. Gerard Ens, Founder and CTO of Go West Robotics, developed the behavior based AI for Baxter. He architected a novel robot control system for intelligent and intuitive task learning for which he holds 3 patents. Gerard developed the Software Development Kit (SDK) to provide low-latency, high frequency (1 KHz) motion control using ROS.

Cloud OEE

Cloud-Based OEE

When it comes to SCADA, HMI and OEE, new technology makes it more accessible and cost efficient to build custom solutions. Go West Robotics designed and developed an easily integrated, cloud-based solution with an edge device .
