A productivity-boosting platform for industrial automation
Star Wars’ C-3PO was fluent in six million forms of communication. But he and R2-D2 were just Hollywood’s vision of robots back in the ‘70s. Today, Silicon Valley-based Fetch Robotics is the real deal. Revolutionizing the way work is done in commercial and industrial environments through robotic solutions. Their robots are very cool and very functional. But equally important for the success of their solutions is FetchCore™, a cloud-based, fleet-management software system. Always innovating, their roboticists set their sights on designing new, powerful functionality for FetchCore™―simple controls for creating and scheduling robots’ tasks. Fetch Robotics partnered with Cogniance to help them bring that functionality to market quickly... and collaboratively.
Making intelligent robots even smarter
Fetch Robotics develops and manufactures autonomous mobile robot solutions, for the warehousing and intralogistic markets. They’re “made in the USA” (designing and assembling everything stateside), but their technological innovations are global. Fetch was seeking a partner to help them build a new platform for streamlining robotic warehouse operations. So they came to Cogniance to tap our proven technical expertise with product development. Customers use FetchCore to skillfully manage their robots. And the new Taskbuilder component would be an integral part of delivering that functionality.
New, big features. Really big ones
It provides customer controls to configure, schedule, and customize robot tasks. So Cogniance got down to business creating the Taskbuilder module and making it part of the entire FetchCore application. Valuable new capabilities. That’s what Cogniance brought to Fetch Robotics’ FetchCore project through innovative software development, exacting quality assurance, and spot-on project management. Working closely with Fetch’s team, Cogniance developed several state-of- the-art features for FetchCore, including: a tool for defining robotic data collection routes; a robot queueing feature; a tool that manages destination groups; and a new ‘conditional actions’ capability that gives “if - then - else” flexibility.
