Rethink Robotics™ creates robots for the manufacturing industry that are different: robots that anyone can use, any company can afford, and that require no programming.
Rethink robots know what you mean and do what you want—because they are Robots with Common Sense tm. They work side-by side with people, so employees can do their jobs better and companies can compete more effectively on the global stage. They adapt quickly and automatically to changing work environment, enabling you to turn your production lines quickly and manufacture with dramatically improved productivity.
Baxter™ is a revolutionary new category of robot that is redefining the way robots can be used in manufacturing environments. It performs a variety of simple, yet critical production tasks while safely and intelligently working next to people.
- 360° sonar and front camera for human presence detection
- Vision-guided movement and object detection for precision and versatility
- 7-degrees of freedom per arm for maximum flexibility and range
- Interchangeable end-effectors for easily switching tasks
- Pedestal with licking casters

Intera 3 Software
With Intera 3, Rethink Robotics doubles the performance and expands the abilities of Baxter, one of the first human-safe robots. Rethink Robotics’ latest software makes Baxter work twice as fast, with twice the precision previously possible.
Intera 3 demonstrates the power of software to deliver continuous innovation more quickly and frequently, adding ever-increasing value to Rethink Robotics’ inexpensive robot. It represents a game-changing approach to automation in manufacturing—moving robotics from fixed to flexible—with software–driven robots that adapt and evolve. As the software advances, Baxter’s capabilities will continue to expand, even as the physical robot remains the same—debunking the age-old idea that hardware improvements are required to enhance performance and ability.
With Intera 3, Baxter’s skill set immediately expands to a broader range of applications, including:
