The Intelligence Behind the Intelligence

Driven by Innovation

We are dedicated to evolving the concept of a fully automated warehouse into a reality that empowers individuals, enables companies, and advances society.

Lior Elazary, CEO, inVia Robotics

Good enough is not enough. A drive to question existing warehouse automation processes and innovate is the foundation of inVia Robotics. We spend each day searching for ways to improve fulfillment efficiency, save time, and optimize productivity within the warehouse.

While the physical manifestation of what we create is robots and software, our higher purpose is to enable businesses and individuals to achieve their full potential by removing the boring and repetitive tasks inherent in business or in life.

Leadership

Lior Elazary | CEO

With more than twenty years of leadership and business experience bringing to market many of the systems that power the Internet, Lior has directed and guided teams developing everything from back-office systems to the core technologies of the business. As a serial entrepreneur, Lior has completed several successful exits, including HostPro (now Web.com), KnowledgeBase and EdgeCast. While working on his Ph.D. at the University of Southern California, Lior worked closely with inVia Robotics co-founders Dan and Rand on various robotics and neuroscience projects, including DARPA Robotic Challenges, one of which led to the Neuromorphic Robotics Toolkit (NRT) which has been designed to outperform the Robotic Operating System (ROS). Currently on a leave of absence from the Ph.D., Lior holds a Masters in Robotics from the University of Southern California and has several publications ranging from neuroscience to robotics.

Randolph Voorhies | CTO

Rand has extensive experience working on robotics projects ranging from autonomous submarines to ground robots to quadrotors. He earned both his Masters and PhD degrees in Robotics from the University of Southern California. During his time at USC, he served as president of the AUVSI competition robotics team and led a group of engineers to build autonomous submarines and compete in international competitions. He was one of the main architects of the Neuromorphic Robotics Toolkit (NRT), a dynamic real-time software platform upon which robotics and computer vision algorithms can be run in a massively parallel manner. This toolkit formed the basis of multiple research projects, including work on multiple DARPA projects such as the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC). Prior to that, he was a research assistant at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory investigating computer vision for robotics.
