What we did

Feature and functionality were analyzed and finalized in consultation with the customer from BOM price, market competition, and serviceability points of view. Multiple top competitors were considered for this analysis. The system engineering work was done in collaboration with the customer, considering a long-term product strategy in mind. We designed the hardware for the robot's controller and its charging mechanism and developed the controller software based on ROS. We developed various navigation modes for the robot with the help of the sensor units. Many ROS modules such as navigation stack, hector SLAM, and geometry MSG were used. The mechanical components were 3D printed for the prototype. Our engineers completed lab and field testing of the prototype at our innovation center in India. We are currently working on cloud-based fleet management, routing, collision avoidance and dynamic path planning applications.
