Our vision

To preserve the Earth’s resources, we need to improve the efficiency and life of industrial assets.

In the last 30 years our planet has experience exponential population growth, we have grown 2.5 times, from 3B to 7.5B. Mankind has established the conditions to not only enable us to survive but thrive. We have now entered the ‘anthropocene’, an age where mankind is the most dominant force on earth. However, this growth has come at a price, our natural environment is suffering. Four key industries are affected by this growth, water, food, energy, and mining. These industries share a common thread, they all rely on machines. We believe that by transforming machines across their lifecycle we can dramatically improve these industries for the benefit of the planet.

Our mission

Our goal is to bring consumer simplicity, combined with artificial intelligence to enable smarter machines.

As consumers, we have seen a dramatic explosion of technology that has touched all areas of our lives. Consumer technology businesses now represent the worlds largest corporations. We believe that machines need to undergo a similar transition. Machine technology has remained unchanged for decades. MOVUS is transforming dumb machines into ‘smarter machines’. Our technology will enable this on a global level through our consumer styled simplicity combined with world class artificial intelligence. We believe there is no time to waste.
