AUBO Robotics, which develops lightweight robots for industrial use, has opened a research and development facility at Cherokee Farm Innovation Campus in Knoxville.
AUBO Robotics opened in Knoxville in 2014 as Smokie Robotics and was formerly located at the University of Tennessee Research Foundation Business Incubator. The company is owned by DunAn Group and operates a second research and development corporation in Beijing, China.
“We chose Cherokee Farm because the campus allows us access to some of the best research and development facilities in the world,” said Peter Farkas, vice president of AUBO Robotics. “Everything from basic science to large-scale advanced manufacturing and innovation in robotics and automation is covered within a 25-mile radius.”
