The RUSNANO Ronavi Robotics Startup Has Begun Selling a New Model of Parcel Sorting Robot
The Ronavi Robotics startup company, part of the TechnoSpark Group of Companies of the investment network of the RUSNANO’s Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs (FIEP), has opened sales of robots for automatic sorting of postal items.
Ronavi S50 is a new compact logistics robot that is designed to distribute and dispatch letters and parcels weighing up to 50 kg to their destinations.
- Flexible response to changes in the volume of cargo distribution.
- Efficient change in the number of destination zones and reallocation of the addresses.
- Optimization of the functionality of employees, avoiding human errors. It is estimated that about 80 Ronavi S50s and 2 employees can sort 7,000 parcels from 30 destinations in an hour.
- The RMS robot control system builds optimum routes and ensures error-free movement.
Ronavi Robotics is the first Russian company to develop, manufacture, and sell autonomous robots for logistics needs. The Ronavi robot range now includes three models with load capacities of 1,500 kg, 500 kg, and 50 kg.
The H1500 robot, designed to carry loads weighing up to 1,500 kg, was successfully tested in June 2021 by PEC, Russia’s largest trucking company. Also, pilot projects with Ronavi robots are being carried out by Rosatom, Gazprom Neft, Faberlic, and others. In early July, Ronavi Robotics’ proposal to automate operations in distribution centers was among the winners of the second MGNTech accelerator of Magnit, Russia’s largest grocery chain, and the Skolkovo Foundation. Pilot testing at the retailer's warehouses will begin shortly.
The Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs was established in 2010 in accordance with Federal Law No. 211-FZ “On reorganization of the Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies.” The Fund aims to develop the innovative infrastructure in the sphere of nanotechnology and implement the educational and infrastructure programs already started by RUSNANO.
The supreme collegial management body of the Fund is the Supervisory Board. Under the Fund’s Charter, the competence of the Supervisory Council, in particular, includes the issues of determining the priority directions of the Fund’s activity, as well as its strategy and budget. The Chairman of the Fund’s Executive Board, the collegial management body, is the Chairman of the Board of Management Company RUSNANO LLC Sergey Kulikov.

Ronavi Robotics (part of the TechnoSpark Group of the Investment Network of the RUSNANO’s Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs) is the first Russian company to develop, manufacture, and sell robots for independent operation in warehouses. Serial production of the AMR H1500 was launched in 2019 at two industrial sites, in Troitsk (Moscow) and Eindhoven (Netherlands) at the capacities of VDL ETG, one of the largest European engineering companies.
