About Bota Systems
We give robots the sense of touch.
Bota Systems' vision is for robots to work and move safely and as natural and free as humans.
As a developer and manufacturer of multi-axis force-torque sensors, torque sensors, and custom sensors, we are diligent about providing the best force-torque sensing solutions and user care experience.
Our team of accomplished robotic, software, and mechanical engineers continually develops highly-integrated and advanced sensors to support a wide range of applications.
Whether used for research or industry, we aim to streamline the process.
Bota Systems was officially founded in 2020 and is the result of years of research in the field of force-torque sensing for robots, the contribution of many talented engineers within two distinguished robotic laboratories (Robotic Systems Lab of ETH Zürich and Control Systems Lab of NTUA), and the support from Gebert Rüf Stiftung, NCCR Robotics, ESA BIC Switzerland and Venture Kick.
The Bota Systems team is small and robust, just like our sensors! Our team resides in Zurich, Switzerland and the people come from all over the world. Collectively, we speak six different languages, come from four different countries, and have over 55 years of experience.
