Robotics Software Development Services

The Go West Robotics team pioneered the development of the AI for Baxter, the first cobot, and continue to be experts in robotics software development.

Custom Software Development

First and foremost, we are robotics software experts.

We craft quality, reusable components for the highest ROI.

We can work independently on your project or we can integrate seamlessly with you team, by bringing our strengths in designing systems architecture and robotic systems- including supervisory systems, automation platform replacements for PLCs, complex simulation, and ROS-based systems- to your team.

We bring the right mix of skills to help you deliver complex projects on time and on budget.

AI, ML & Deep Neural Networks

Our team designed the AI for the first-ever cobot. Since then, we've focused our efforts on ensuring that the robotic products that we create maximize performance and stability.

As experts in AI, ML and DNN, working with Go West Robotics opens up new possibilities in robot capabilities and quality.

Custom algorithms can not only make your robots work smarter and faster, but can also help your development teams increase their productivity.

Focus on Quality

Go West Robotics has built a reputation for software solutions that can stand the test of time.

We are fanatically devoted to building products without defects. Focusing on quality in robotics is where we can make a meaningful difference.

Selected Projects

The Bossa Nova 2020 Robot

Bossa Nova 2020

Bossa Nova Robotics is the leading provider of real-time, on-shelf product data for the global retail industry. Go West Robotics developed simulation and test automation tools to prevent regression and increase the speed of development.

The Botvac Robotic Vacuum Cleaner


The BotVac is a top selling robotic vacuum cleaner designed and manufactured by Neato Robotics. Go West Robotics developed simulation and embedded applications for new and legacy vacuum robots. We developed factory tests to measure robot vacuum motion and cleaning ability and also programmed custom encryption algorithms to securely store and upload log information from the robot. We developed an application to verify IOT connectivity. In addition we designed, programmed and deployed custom test automation tools.

The Pleo Animatronic Toy


Pleo is an animatronic baby dinosaur designed to evolve based on its environment and interactions. Gerard Ens, Founder & CTO of Go West Robotics, developed Pleo’s original algorithms for AI. This includes vision, sound direction, IR communications and high speed video processing for object detection and tracking.

Pleo features a camera-based vision system, two microphones, binaural hearing, beat detection allowing Pleo to dance and listen to music. The robot has 12 touch sensors, 4 ground foot sensors for surface detection, 14 force-feedback sensors, an orientation tilt sensor for body position, infrared mouth sensor for object detection into mouth and two-way infrared communication with other Pleos as well as infrared detection for external objects.
