Senior Mechanical Design Engineer

At Bossa Nova we create service robots for the global retail industry. Our robots’ mission is to make stores run efficiently by automating the collection and analysis of on-shelves inventory data in large scale stores. Navigating smoothly along the aisles, we circulate autonomously among busy customers and employees.  If we were a self- driving car we’d be operating at level 5 autonomy.  Yep, it is possible to move, scan and analyze all at the same time. It is not that simple though and we rely on computer vision, 3D image processing and deep learning techniques to accomplish our mission.

Oh, we should add, it’s real, happening today, you can meet our robots in some of the world’s biggest retailers.
