In today’s exciting press release InOrbit, has announced an integration with Alfred Kärcher SE & Co., the world’s leading provider of cleaning technology to bring our best-in-class real-time observability, optimization and some newly launched advanced operations capabilities to Kärcher’s most sophisticated autonomous machine - the new KIRA B 50 floor scrubber.
InOrbit was excited to recently host another in our ongoing series of webinars exploring automation across various sectors; this time focusing on the state of automation in retail. As with the previous InOrbit webinars, CEO Florian Pestoni hosted the discussion with some fantastic guest speakers sharing their insights and expertise.
If you didn’t have a chance to join us, the webinar is now available for free on-demand. Although you might want to read on and explore some of our key takeaways from the discussion first.
We’ve been hearing a lot lately about the metaverse. Though the concept is far from new and the name itself is 30 years old, the hype cycle is in full swing, with headlines like “Everyone wants to own the metaverse, including Facebook and Microsoft. But what exactly is it?” appearing in mass media with increasing frequency.
While people may not fully agree on what it is and when it will get here, one thing is clear: The metaverse is all about virtual avatars in a virtual world doing virtual things. Unless we all end up hooked to machines that keep us alive while we gallivant in a virtual world a la The Matrix, we are still stuck with the real world, climate change and all.
Last week, InOrbit was thrilled to be in Atlanta, once again meeting with friends, colleagues, and customers for the premier supply chain experience trade show, MODEX 2022. Our team, InOrbit CEO Florian Pestoni and Strategic Business Advisor Ángel Hernández, took to the floor exploring the best in next-generation supply chain solutions including the latest in equipment and technology innovations. As expected, there were robots everywhere.
InOrbit is thrilled to announce that we have been selected to participate in the SAP.iO Foundry Data & Analytics Program as part of the Berlin Spring 2022 cohort. Out of over 100 applicants, five startups have been picked to be part of this selective program. Participating companies will have an opportunity to integrate with SAP products and work with SAP enterprise users who are looking to expand their use of data and analytics to improve their operations.
At InOrbit we’re always interested in the journey of robotics start-ups. We celebrate the success of our Ecosystem partners and others who are building the foundation of what will be the future of automation. Our vision of a world where humans, robots and AI work together to drive radical productivity improvements and enable people to reach new heights cannot be built alone. While we believe we can play our part as a catalyst for change, including the adoption of RobOps @ scale, others are working tirelessly to develop emerging spaces for robotics. As we explored in our recent Retail whitepaper this sector has been heating up significantly. One company poised to make an impact is Coalescent Mobile Robotics. A Danish start-up founded in 2018, their CEO Clionadh Martin recently sat down to explore the future of retail robotics with InOrbit CEO, and Robot Operations Group co-founder Florian Pestoni in the latest RobOps Masters Interview series.
Today InOrbit announces the release of Data Backfill, adding to our growing list of RobOps tools designed to address specific challenges companies face when managing robot fleets at scale. This is another piece of the puzzle for how to maintain end-to-end observability under even the most demanding conditions, eliminating gaps in collected data by reconstructing a robot’s operating history through offline data saved and backfilled upon reconnection.
At InOrbit we strive to build truly valuable tools for our users. That means layers of complexity allow experienced developers with complex multi-robot deployments to take full advantage of the depth of support and robust solutions our platform offers, but it also means accessible and streamlined interfaces with clear easy-to-understand startup documentation for those exploring InOrbit for the very first time. InOrbit is for developers evaluating our tools for their robot projects, big and small. InOrbit is for robotics students interested in better understanding control and data software. InOrbit is for anyone excited to learn more about effective robot operations.
At InOrbit, most of our time is spent thinking about robots and how to make them perform better. But part of that vision includes robots and humans working together – without the human factor, robots are just a collection of metal and plastic parts. Here is another in a series of posts highlighting some of the outstanding humans on the InOrbit team, also known as InOrbiters. The posts aim to share details on some members of the team, what drove them to work here, and what they find most interesting about robotics and the development of the InOrbit platform.
Today we sat down with Elvio Aruta. a Release Engineer and QA Automation specialist at InOrbit. He lives in Mendoza, Argentina, and has been with InOrbit for exactly one year.
Big or small, every feature we develop for the InOrbit platform has a purpose. Every capability we support is built to help make the lives of robot operators, developers, managers, and their customers easier. Building on the philosophy of experiment-led development we’ve learned that sometimes what may seem small can have a big impact. And quality of life updates add up to make software more robust and ultimately useful. Today we’re diving into InOrbit’s Hi-rez camera feature.
