Live Drive

Building the World’s Fastest, Safest Robots

THE BREAKTHROUGH

Introducing the LiveDrive - the world’s highest performance direct-drive robotic actuator. The main limitation in today’s robots are the actuators - the motors, gearboxes and drive belts that make robots move. LiveDrive is the solution.

UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE

The high torque-to-weight and low inertia of LiveDrive enables high-speed operation with unprecedented safety. The incredibly high peak torque provides near-instant stopping capability. Compared to near-market competitors, the LiveDrive dramatically increases speed and improves emergency stopping times.

DESIGNED FOR ROBOTS

LiveDrive delivers industry-changing performance, controllability, precision and power. Its smooth back-drivability provides robots with life-like motion and reaction. With LiveDrive’s low inertia and high force sensitivity, robots equipped with LiveDrive are easy to program and safe to operate in human environments.

The Livedrive Story

ENABLING NEW DESIGNS

LiveDrive enables entirely new robot designs and applications. Its geometry frees designers to create robots that they could only imagine before. And robots built with LiveDrive will be faster, safer, less expensive and more reliable.

INSPIRING NEW FORMS OF ROBOTS

The groundbreaking performance of the LiveDrive unlocks a world of new possibilities. Its unique combination of power, precision, controllability and low profile form-factor will free designers to create the next generations of robots.

NEW MARKETS

The robotics market is currently estimated at $30 billion per year and is projected to reach $70 billion over the next decade. The industry spans a diverse range of sectors including industrial, military, commercial, medical and personal robotics. We believe that before long, most new robot designs will include LiveDrive.
