What We Do
Robots have proven themselves in extreme and diverse environments from the surface of Mars to battlefields and ocean depths. We are a robotics company that is bringing the innovations of last several decades to the operation and management of solar power plants.

Our mission at QBotix is to leverage our expertise in both solar and rugged and intelligent robotics to create breakthrough products that offer a compelling combination of competitive cost, high reliability, easy installation, superior performance, universal compatibility and unprecedented system level intelligence. With our products, our customers reduce their cost of ownership while increasing their profit margins and investment returns in solar power plants.

QBotix has invented the paradigm of Solar Robotics™, where autonomous, rugged and intelligent robots replace hundreds of conventional electromechanical components and reduce structural material requirements. The use of this paradigm allows the creation of fundamentally new system level architectures that reduce cost and increase performance and reliability.

Our first product is the Robotic Tracking System™ (RTS™), which delivers dual-axis tracking performance at installed costs similar to single-axis. The RTS works with all existing photovoltaic modules, inverters and foundations to increase energy production and decrease installed costs, providing the lowest Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) of any mounting or tracking system.

QBotix was founded in August 2010 in Half Moon Bay, California by Wasiq Bokhari and a team of innovators from Caltech and Stanford. Today we are headquartered in Menlo Park, California. Our diverse and talented team includes leading robotics, mechanical, electrical and software engineers as well as industry veterans from some of the world’s most respected companies in solar and technology industries.
