ABOUT SISU

What started as two guys in a garage in 2010, Sisu has ended up becoming a robotics powerhouse. Beginning with their National Instruments contract that created a machine that can triangulate the position of an incoming dart, Sisu has gone on to develop robots that do everything from show Boy Scouts how to tie knots, to a fully functional Rock ’em, Sock ’em Robots game. The companies latest device - KAISU, is revolutionizing the robotics industry in ways never seen before!

GUEST SPEAKER

Russell Aldrige - CEO & Co-Founder, Sisu

Russell Aldridge is the President of Sisu, an industrial robotics company in Pflugerville Texas. Russell grew up in the small farming community of Grantsville Utah where he gained a love for the outdoors, working on cars, and general tinkering. He graduated from Brigham Young University (BYU) in mechanical engineering and was a member of the Formula SAE racing team.

Russell moved to Austin Texas to work for National Instruments and then started Sisu in a garage in 2010 with his good friend Marc Christenson. Sisu has grown to a company of nearly 50 people and is a robot integrator and precision machine shop. Sisu creates products like KAISU which makes robots easy to program for machine operators, welders, and cinematographers.

Russell serves actively in his church and has been a scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America. He enjoys spending time with his wife and four children, coming up with new inventions, and doing anything outdoors.
