How we pilot our "NO" pilot scrubber.
Hello! I'm Robert, the founder of YaCu Robotics. I want to tell you how we are testing our Unit autonomous scrubber.

There are several scenarios:

1. We invite you to our warehouse, present how the cleaning robot works and answer all questions. Our autonomous driving technology is best suited for driving in large and open areas. Such as warehouses, airports, train stations and megamarkets

2. Together we choose a location where we need to conduct the pilot. We drive out to the place and estimate which site is better suited for the demonstration. If the site is large, we usually separate 600-1000m2.

3. Then we choose a date when a specialist can come and measure the additional equipment. Let me explain, the robot moves in space, knowing its global position. For this purpose, we hang anchors (antennas that look like wi-fi modems) around the perimeter of the room. Anchors are hung at a height of 2-3m from the ground or under the ceiling. The distance between them is about 50m (so that the entire cleaning area is covered). The tag on the robot "communicates" with the anchors and realizes where it is. Everything is simple!) For the time of the pilot, the anchors will be powered by batteries, then it will need to be powered from the regular network

Anchors and tag based on RTLS is our main development, which makes it possible to move in large areas with rapidly changing environment (warehouses, large shopping centers, train stations). SLAM technology, which 99% of robots have, does not provide this.

  4. The customer sends a floor plan (preferably in .dwg format), we plot the location of the anchors on it. The CNC programs create the route automatically.

5. On the pilot day, we arrive with the robot, do debugging and launch. It seems long and complicated, but in reality it is done in 3 days, an hour a day.

It is important to us that "the pilot is not for the sake of the pilot", so we pre-determine the criteria for evaluating the robot and its routes. And we don't go if the robot is required to do something special in terms of washing. For example: "Will it suck up big chips?". It will "suck up" exactly as many chips as a normal scrubber sucks up.

And yes, it's all free. If you are from another city, the costs are passed on to the customer (logistics, flight, accommodation and daily allowances for 2 specialists).
