A software architect and business executive, Mr. Dahlstrom has founded two businesses and architected the software for them. He has overseen the engineering of the built technology products and services within these companies and created profitable sustainable high margin technology companies.
Bob's 2nd software company Apellix develops precision software controlled aerial robotics systems that physically contact or fly in very close proximity to structures, to paint, clean, and measure them (amongst other things). While utilizing custom designed and built drones as a lift platform, proprietary software, and articulating robotic arms and hands (end effectors), Apellix is able to autonomously complete maintenance, cleaning, coating and measurement tasks.
Prior to Apellix Mr. Dahlstrom founded BluePrint Data, a Software as a Service OEM provider of Internet Filtering products and services. Before that Bob was a full time faculty member at Florida State University, worked for the Florida Legislature, and worked at AT&T Microelectronics where he wrote his first computer program in 1986.
