Interview with Cameron Harder-Hutton, Software Engineering Intern
We spoke with Cameron Harder-Hutton, software engineering intern to find out more about what he does daily and his internship experience so far in SESTO Robotics. Read on to find out more! Tell us a little about yourself and the job that you do. What are your day to day responsibilities? Hi! My name is Cameron and I am a final year Software Engineering undergraduate in The University of Queensland, Australia and I am working as an intern for SESTO Robotics. Currently, my tasks revolve around robotics applications and working with the team to develop high level software applications for SESTO’s Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs). On a daily basis, my tasks include researching, designing and development of applications followed by testing on the AGVs. Do you have any memorable stories during your time at SESTO Robotics? What do you like about the work culture here? When I started my internship, I was expecting to be given some tasks similar to what the company is developing in order to learn. However it was quite a pleasant moment to find out what I am working on may be going out into production. To find out my contributions has some value to the company has made me feel a sense of responsibility and a deep level of appreciation.As for work culture – it is very special here. Based on my experience, there are not many companies where the CEO will address you by name, let alone have a drink with you! But in all seriousness, if I were to describe the work culture to a non-employee, I would say that SESTO Robotics reveres and respects the morale of its teammates just as highly as the quality of engineering. How has working in SESTO Robotics developed your career? SESTO Robotics is my first industry internship, and it is also my first time working in Singapore as well!Despite being in my final year of university, almost everything I have completed here is new to me. No doubt the learning curve has been steep but the greatest benefit that SESTO Robotics has had on my career...

In his speech, Michael explained to the guests the various functions of an autonomous mobile robot and how it can help improve the manufacturing process for different industries. In addition, Michael and various Singapore Manufacturing Innovation Centre representatives met and spoke with a few Singapore Ministers including Education Minister Ong Ye Kung at the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City.
Leading Autonomous Mobile Robot Company SESTO Robotics Announces Completion of Spin-Off From Parent Company HOPE Technik
Spin-off, along with initial investments from Singtel Innov8 and Heliconia Capital Management will enable SESTO Robotics to accelerate and expand its market reach while developing new technologies SESTO Robotics, a leading robotics company in the field of autonomous technology, announced that its spin-off from parent company HOPE Technik has been successfully completed. SESTO Robotics was first formed as a business division within HOPE Technik, an investment portfolio company of Singtel Innov8 and Heliconia Capital Management. The spin-off is in line with the strategic plan for SESTO Robotics to expand its product portfolio while accelerating the delivery of its products to a rapidly growing pool of customers utilising autonomous mobile robot (AMR) technology. With Series A funding totalling $4 million from Singtel Innov8 and Heliconia Capital Management, the spin-off will enable SESTO Robotics to meet its high growth trajectories. First, new AMR solutions will be developed to address the demands of previously untapped industries while the company concurrently expands its reach in current verticals. Second, the company looks to expand its geographical reach and operations beyond current markets such as China and Singapore. “New and mature companies alike are looking into implementing intelligent automation and the completion of this spin-off and injection of initial funding will further strengthen SESTO Robotics’ product positioning. This exercise will enable us to fulfil our vision of developing scalable autonomous robotics solutions for the supply chains of various industries,” said SESTO Robotics Chief Executive Officer Michael Leong. “The strategic guidance and support shown by Singtel Innov8 and Heliconia Capital Management have been instrumental to our growth and we look forward to working with them to bring SESTO Robotics to greater heights after this spin-off.” In today’s economy, changing consumer habits have led to shorter time-to-market for products. Coupled with the shortage of skilled workers, companies are pushed to adopt smart and flexible automation processes to help them overcome pressures placed upon their manufacturing lines. At the same time, globally companies now have better understanding of the benefits of Industry 4.0 practices and are shifting their attention to autonomous mobile robots. SESTO Robotics’ products will allow companies...
