Fetch is a mobile manipulation platform designed to operate in human work environments. It can navigate autonomously and has an articulated arm for grabbing items off bins and shelves.

OpenAI, a research group founded by Elon Musk, is using Fetch robots and machine learning to improve mobile manipulation.
Fetch Robotics was founded in early 2015 by a team of robot experts who had started Unbounded Robotics just two years before. The founders, including Fetch CEO Melonee Wise, all worked at Willow Garage, and Unbounded was a mobile manipulation-focused spin-off of Willow. Fetch was a fresh start that allowed the new company to fully develop their concept for an intelligent, robust, and efficient autonomous mobile robotic system for warehouses and factories. In 2021, Zebra Technologies acquired Fetch for US $305 million.
