Session Title: From motorcycles to robots: enabling humans to do more
Join us for lunch, an office tour and an interactive experience with our autonomous robots! Piaggio Fast Forward is a new company of the Piaggio Group (Owners of Vespa, Moto Guzzi, Aprilia, Gilera and Derbi) that was started in 2015 to re-think how to better move people and goods in urban settings. We just launched our first product, Gita, a cargo carrying robot that can follow a human operator (like a personal pack mule) carrying up to 40 pounds or move autonomously by itself in a mapped environment. We've been featured in the WSJ, Time Magazine, The Economist, CNN, Techcrunch and more and Forrester research said we are "going to change the way people work."

During our session, we'll give you a quick background of how we came to be, talk about what we think is happening in the world of personal mobility and transportation, show you around our office (which includes a prototyping shop with a Kuka robot, multiple 3D printers and other machines) and give you a chance to interact 1-on-1 with Gita. Our company is all about enabling humans to move faster, more efficiently and more enjoyably. Join us for an afternoon to learn about why we think this sector is so interesting and what our bet of the future of transportation will look like.
Suggested audience: We are hiring mechanical, electrical, and software engineers, marketers, business development managers and more and encourage people looking for full time or internship opportunities to join us.
 
PFF is located at 56 Roland Street, Suite 104, Boston, MA 02129. We're a 3 minute walk from the Sullivan Square T stop on the orange line. We offer free visitor parking outside our office. Our actual entrance door is located at the corner of Roland and Crescent streets. Walk up the ramp on the side of the loading dock

Piaggio Fast Forward

Piaggio Fast Forward is reinventing the future of transportation by fundamentally rethinking how to move goods and people. PFF is pioneering the intelligent movement of people and goods at human: larger than aerial drones but smaller than self-driving cars and trucks. PFF focuses on freeing a human being’s hands, enabling them to do more. The human is at the center of everything we create.
