MobileRobots was founded by Jeanne Dietsch in 1995 in Amherst, N.H. Focusing on research robots and automation services, it grew from a small startup into a global supplier of robot platforms. Its most successful product was the Pioneer line of mobile robots. Designed as a versatile system that was ready for deployment, Pioneer robots became a popular mobile base, used in research and corporate labs worldwide, as well as in college courses in robotics and computer science. MobileRobots was sold in 2010 to Adept Technology, now owned by Omron.
