Kambria is a decentralized open innovation platform managed by Kambria International (“KI”) that will foster a collaborative ecosystem, with the goal of dramatically accelerating the development and adoption of the world’s most advanced robotic technologies.
Current progress in the robotics industry is impeded by siloed development, wasted labor, and high startup costs. As a result, the pace of innovation is needlessly slowed. Kambria’s creation was born out of our desire to accelerate this process by engaging a community of developers and tinkerers, providing them with the necessary tools, and connecting them through market demand.
Drawing inspiration from other widely popular open source operating systems like Linux and Android, the core of the Kambria platform is an open repository comprised of a high-level behavior library and modular hardware and software components for robotics. The repository is designed to maximize reusability and collaboration during development.
Using game theory and token economics, KI is incentivizing the Kambria community to reach a paretooptimal state of continual cooperation of investors, companies, contributors, and manufacturers, and users are empowered to collaborate and help the ecosystem grow rapidly.
Our goal is to design and deliver the most capable yet affordable consumer robots at 10x the speed, efficiency, and ease. The founders of KI believe that the Kambria platform will unlock substantial innovation in markets that are primed for technological transformation. Imagine a world where your ill stricken daughter doesn’t have to miss out on playing with her grandma 10,000 miles away; where she can be safe alone; a world where she is given automated care around the clock; and where she can be educated by the best teachers in the comfort of her home. We believe this reality can be achieved in the near future with the Kambria robotics innovation platform built by the community.
Interactions on the platform are facilitated by the Kambria token to be created, issued and deployed by KTI (“KAT”). Companies can use KAT to issue bounty challenges which are awarded to projects when fulfilled. Individuals or teams are rewarded with KAT for designs or code they contribute. Manufacturers earn KAT through production of robots and robotic parts. Community members use KAT to promote
specific projects and fundraise for the shared technology. KAT can also be used to fairly capture the value to pay for enforcement of legal rights created by Kambria platform participants and sustain the growing community. If the Kambria platform is successful in encouraging innovation in the robotics industry, the founders will consider the application of the Kambria platform to innovation in other industries in the future.Kambria_White_Paper_v2_20180615
