With passenger and cargo flights set to double over the next two decades, airline baggage and cargo logistics must improve their efficiency. The systems are too manual, costly, inefficient and outdated, but Pattern Labs’ autonomous and tele-operable solu-tions will help the global baggage and cargo handling market’s performance.

The team at Pattern Labs, half of whom came from the auton-omous robotics team at Canvas Technology, is deploying robotics and process automation for airline operations. Canvas provided robotics solutions to Amazon.com Inc. until the e-commerce behemoth acquired it in 2019. After the acquisition, Pattern Labs’ four founders built technology for Amazon until they were ready to dive back into the startup space.

Founded in 2021, the team built a prototype in a Boulder garage, where it met with its anchor customer. Two years later, it’s reached multiple goals and a commercial agreement with that anchor customer, setting it on a path to large-scale deployment of its technology at its customer’s hub.

Pattern Labs recently raised $8.5 million in a Series A funding round. The company’s team volunteers in the local robotics com-munity, including attending and volunteering at local universities and organizations like Boulder Startup Week and Boulder is for Robots.
