AMP Robotics

AMP Robotics™ is an industrial artificial intelligence and robotics company that is changing the economics of material recovery and recycling.

AMP Robotics™ is transforming the economics of recycling using guided robotics.

AMP Robotics was founded in 2015 by James Bailey and Matanya Horowitz. The company is headquartered in Louisville, Colorado.


AMP' high-speed robotics system, AMP Cortex™, precisely automates the identification, sorting and processing of material streams to extract maximum value for businesses that recycle municipal solid waste, e-waste, and construction and demolition materials.


The AMP Neuron™ AI platform operates AMP Cortex using advanced computer vision and machine learning to continuously train itself by processing millions of material images and adapting to changes in a facility’s material stream. And The AMP Insights™ web-based data management system digitizes the material stream, providing insights and important alerts to operators so they can optimize their business even further.


AMP platform had processed over a billion recyclables across installations in over 20 states, which the company claims translates to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of approximately half a million metric tons.
