Indian robotics firm Addverb receives order worth USD 1 Bn from Reliance

Legion, Addverb’s in-house fleet management system hosted in Ahmedabad will control the entire fleet that is connected via a 5G network.

Noida-based robotics startup Addverb Technologies has closed a deal for a robot order worth USD 1 billion with Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Retail. The order is for robots with 5G technology and will be spread across four to five years. 

The robots will be deployed to Reliance Industries’ (RIL’s) Jamnagar refinery and will be remote controlled by RIL, Mumbai. While Addverb did not confirm the value of the order, a Times of India report confirmed that the order will contain a fleet of Dynamo 200 bots. Legion, Addverb’s in-house fleet management system hosted in Ahmedabad will control the entire fleet that is connected via a 5G network. Reliance has not responded to the story.

Just last month, Reliance Retail bought a 54 percent stake in the intra-logistics automation provider for USD 132 million. According to the report, apart from tagging inventory, another fleet of Dynamo bots will be used separately for bagging line automation.
