It looks as if Amazon is building out its robot army


Amazon Web Services has brought Bill Vass, former CEO of Liquid Robotics, aboard as its new VP of engineering, according to Vaas’s LinkedIn Page. The move was first reported by Bloomberg on Wednesday.

[company]AWS[/company], along with parent company [company]Amazon[/company], is big on robotics. Amazon bought Kiva Systems, a maker of robotic material handling systems, two years ago for $775 million. And thanks to the 60 Minutes “exclusive” last year, we know Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wants to field a flotilla of small delivery drones.

Before joining [company]Liquid Robotics[/company], Vaas spent more than a decade at [company]Sun Microsystems[/company], where he was president of Sun Microsystems Federal as well as VP of corporate software services, chief security officer and CIO.
