Our Story

We founded Third Wave in 2018 in Union City, California to apply our combined 50+ years of expertise - at Google, Toyota and beyond - and develop real-world robotics applications. Our first product, the world’s most advanced autonomous forklift, delivers revolutionary increases in safety, efficiency and throughput by leveraging shared autonomy - a breakthrough in machine learning, computer vision and robotic material handling.
