Our mission is to accelerate the benefits of robotics for everyday life


We're Nuro

We believe that great technology should benefit everyone. The team at Nuro is accelerating a future where robots make life easier and help us connect to the people and things we love. Together, we’re pushing the boundaries of robotics to improve human life.

Dave Ferguson and Jiajun Zhu have devoted their careers to robotics and machine learning, most recently as Principal Engineers at Google’s self-driving car project (now Waymo). They founded Nuro in 2016 to harness the power of robotics and artificial intelligence to solve new challenges at a global scale.


Nuro’s team is made up of the very best minds from academia and industry. We are veterans in robotics, consumer electronics, autonomous vehicles, and automotive — from Google, Waymo, Apple, Uber, Tesla, and GM. We come from some of the world's top universities — including Berkeley, Cambridge, Caltech, Chicago, CMU, Freiburg, Fudan, Harvard, MIT, Oxford, Princeton, Stanford, Toronto, U of M, UNC, and Waterloo. Members of our team have won numerous world competitions — including DARPA Urban Challenge, DARPA Robotics Challenge, and ImageNet.
