Just a few months ago, he worked day and night with fellow company founders, UW graduates Pat Martinson and Brian Webb to try to create a niche for their robots, they rely on reheated spaghetti and egg salad sandwiches for a living.
Some successes have been achieved.
There are six universities in Canada and three in the United States. S.
Including the University of California, Berkeley, one of the leading engineering colleges in the United States, has signed an agreement to purchase Clearpath robots for their engineering courses or research projects.
Rendall\'s memory of the company\'s first big sale to the University of Calgary is still fresh.
On a snowy day last winter, he had been driving at Waterloo, and his mobile phone received Alejandro rami-Serrano.

Serrano has been looking for a robot that may work for his port security research project, but all he can find is expensive machines made by military suppliers.
He first met Clearpath at the trade show and was impressed with the products of this brave startup.
The Clearpath robot he sees is cheaper, but it is still very complicated. friendly.
Without his computer and documents in front of him, Rendall was frantically thinking as he tried to negotiate the cold conditions while fumbling for answers.
Suddenly, the professor said, \"Let\'s do it.
Randall could hardly believe he would make a deal.
\"It\'s really exciting.
\"I didn\'t expect that,\" he said . \".
Another big surprise came when Clearpath attracted financing from four angel investors.
It took five months to have a series of hard talks with different investors, but what really benefits the size of the company is that it has received bank revenue from early clients.
For Lundell, the process is neural --
It\'s also exciting.
\"Adrenaline was really excited when I walked into these meetings,\" he said . \".
Grants from Angel funds and government agencies such as the Ontario Centre of Excellence and the Canadian commission for natural science and engineering research are a much needed lifeline.
Revenue from university sales and related service contracts brings some cash, but that\'s not enough.
Clearpath finally escaped its broom.
The University of Waterloo Research and Science Park accelerator center closet office, moved into the larger residence of the leather factory building located in the heart of kidina, but it is still red, burning money every day.
As the plane moves in the direction of this critical meeting, Rendall believes that at least the company has learned from its mistakes.
There will be no funny mistakes.
Ups is like what novice entrepreneurs did last year at the first trade show in Alaska.
To save money, they took apart one of their robots, packed the clothes around it and packed it in a suitcase.
The nervous founders are also worried that their precious goods will somehow be lost if they are transported to another plane by express delivery.
But dragging 50 pounds of the metal through the airport is not a pleasant experience, and after a long and tiring flight to Anchorage, reassembling in a small hotel room is not a hassle
Increasing the excitement of Rendall is that Clearpath may be heading in a new direction.
Previously, it was aiming for academic space.
Now it\'s going to catch a much bigger fish.
Industrial market.
Robots have been used in factories and manufacturing plants for decades, but they are basically fixed machines designed to complete fixed tasks.
At the same time, Rendell believes that the market for mobile robots that can move around and complete various tasks in sometimes chaotic or harsh outdoor conditions is largely untapped.
Mobility is the difference between Clearpath and its competitors, and it has a wide range of applications.
Customers in the military, aerospace and health sectors have matured.
Department of care, environment, mining, monitoring and infrastructure.
If a big company decides to go remote
Control the fire, it can install a hose on husky.
\"We are at the cusp of a big market,\" said Lundell . \"
One of the applications Clearpath is pursuing is \"rapid prototyping \".
\"Using one of its robots as a test device, customers don\'t have to spend a lot of time and money designing their own prototypes.
Proof of concept has been established.
The development process can be carried out faster.
Partnership with the United StatesS.
The upcoming visit by Rendall is key to potentially opening this market.
It is a larger operator in the robot market with core products that complement Clearpath hardware.
Better yet, it is more experienced in sales and marketing, and can open the channels Clearpath dreams.
That means a lot less cold calls and boring doors.
Recruit new clients.
Rendel met with some of the company\'s delegates at the trade show.
The robot industry is small.
Everyone knows each other.
It helped Clearpath get 1 feet at the door.
\"It is an important milestone for us to go so far in the discussion,\" he said . \".
He is eager to say more about potential partnerships, but a ban has come into effect before the deal is finalized.
Even mentioned that the state he flew to was a No.
Because it can identify potential partners.
Back in kidina a week later, Lundell and other founders were anxiously awaiting a decision on a potential partnership.
But Lundell said with confidence that they would get the green light.
The latest generation of Clearpath Husky, he said, \"is indeed our best project so far \".
