Forcen, a robotics sensing company, has received Pre-A $8.5 million funding round as it scales operations for its prototype production facility to support more customers and to continue developing its research and development for its force sensing technology for robots. 

The company was founded in 2015 by Robert Brooks (BASc ‘12 mechanical and mechatronics engineering). Its core offering, ForceFilm, is a thin, force-sensing film that can be laminated onto a machine to give it a sense of touch, and previously won the Canadian national James Dyson Award.  

To date, Forcen has raised $12.95 million in equity funding. Learn more about Forcen’s newest round of funding in BetaKit.
