“We
have seen tremendous progress over the past two years, including our recently
announced strategic partnership with Husqvarna and our acquisition of
Mowbot,” Fahey said. “During that time, we have also worked on

expanding our leadership team. As an integral part of that team, Hiten has led
Robin’s product and strategy efforts and helped the business grow its software,
hardware, and e-commerce presence. He is uniquely qualified to lead the
company’s ongoing efforts to expand and strengthen its position in this rapidly

and engineering for the consumer robotics industry. Since joining Robin in

including new investments and ongoing innovation efforts. Prior to that, he
spent more than 15 years with iRobot, where he led the development of the Terra
robotic mower program, held leadership positions in product development,
advanced innovation at the company, and led efforts to decrease time to market.
Sonpal also founded ParaMow/Outwork Robots. He earned a bachelor’s degree in
computer engineering from the University of Evansville and
is pursuing a master’s at Georgia Institute of
Technology specializing in Artificial Intelligence and Machine
Learning.

“The
people and products at Robin Autopilot are among the best in this industry, and
I am privileged to have this opportunity to lead the company toward what we
feel is a bright and exciting future in offering robotics-as-a-service,”
