Historical Process

As China's advanced indoor and outdoor general-purpose mobile robot company and industry leader, Zhen Robotics has completed its 5th generation of product development and 70 product reliability tests, and has a product matrix including "Zhen Robotics RoboWhale" MINI - the universal indoor and outdoor commercial cleaning robot , "Zhen Robotics RoboPony" MINI - the last mile/intelligent end delivery robot , "Zhen Robotics RoboBat" MINI - the universal indoor and outdoor unmanned patrol robot. Diverse application scenarios, with strong program replication, with industry leading customers in China and abroad. With a high market share in the blue ocean, we sincerely invite those who have the ability to customize market expansion and implementation and have abundant local customer resources to join.

Establishment of the company

On July 6, 2016, Zhen Robotics was founded with 5 desks in Tsinghua University x-lab,and subsequently received funding from Tsinghua University x-lab's Next Generation Technology Education Fund and Tsinghua University School Committee's Create+ Seed Fund.

The first prototype of the Zhen Robotics RoboPony robot was launched

In August 2016, the first multi-line LiDAR was purchased at the current price of RMB 72,000, and the first laser version of the Zhen Robotics RoboPony unmanned delivery robot prototype was assembled in a processing factory in the suburbs of Beijing.

First Reported by 36 Krypton

In August 2016, 36 Krypton first reported on China's small unmanned delivery robots with the headline"Replacing takeaway delivery man with robots, Zhen Robotics wants to be the Chinese version of 'Starship'".

Received a seed round funding from PuYue China PLUGANDPLAY CHINA

In December 2016, after the founder team communicated efficiently with the internationally renowned incubator "PuYue China - PLUGANDPLAY CHINA" for half an hour, then we obtained their angel investment (Investor pulled out).

Received a angel round financing from Dark Horse Fund

In July 2017, we received investment from Dark Horse Fund, an early-stage investment fund established by famous investor Hu Xiang (Investor pulled out).

Obtain large quantities of orders from international customers

In May 2020, after the international customer concept verification and pilot operation, the first batch of international customer orders were obtained. (we still provide technical support and cooperation for this customer)

Operating mileage exceeds 800,000 km

In October 2021, the robot cluster formation was in full operation, with an operating mileage of more than 800, 000 kilometers.

Anji mass production base launch

In February 2022, the mass production production base in Anji, Zhejiang, China was launched, and the full-scene epxeriment and test base was launched.

Completing a Troika-style robotics layout

In March 2022, based on the same robot universal chassis, a Troika-style product matrix of "Zhen Robotics RoboPony" delivery robot, "Zhen Robotics RoboWhale" commercial cleaning robot ,"Zhen Robotics RoboBat" unmanned patrol robot have been formed.

The development of a visual version of Zhen Robotics RoboPony has been started

In April 2022, on the premise of excellent feedback from the LiDAR version of the robot, we decided to start the research and development of the visual version of the low-cost delivery robot, aiming to form a strong layout strategy in the niche market.
