Today is definitely an exciting day for us at InOrbit. You may have seen our press release announcing the latest advancements with InOrbit missions as well as the expansion of our InOrbit Connect ecosystem to a host of new partners. These developments mark a milestone for the InOrbit platform as we have an answer to user demand for end-to-end orchestration.
At InOrbi we want to demystify robotics. Our core business is B2B but we know we're reaching people outside of the "traditional" world of manufacturing and automation. We see it in the comments section on social media, we see it in the people brand new to the space who reach out to us for expert guidance, and we see it every day at the InOrbit Robot Space from average people on the street looking to learn more. Simply put the scope of the robotics landscape is growing as robots become a part of regular people's lives more than ever. We hope the people we connect with will share in our vision for a better world through robots.
At InOrbit we love getting the opportunity to connect directly with customers, industry peers, and each other. There’s a wonderful intimacy that binds us together as advocates for automation when we’re able to meet at events. This is even more important for InOrbit as we are a distributed company that most often works from far-flung cities scattered around the world. This May at Automate 2023, some of our team had a chance to come together in Detroit for one of the biggest robotics events in North America. There we celebrated our achievements, shared our passion for robotics and spoke to everyone we could about the recent strides InOrbit has made, promoting the value of effective robot operations.
We’re very excited today to announce our plans for Automate 2023, which kicks off in Detroit a week from now. The event, run by the Association for Advancing Automation (or A3) is the premier robotics industry conference, and one of our favorites. Last year’s Automate was a true highlight for InOrbit, as it gave us an opportunity to bring our platform and RobOps solutions to a massive and engaged audience. This year we’re thrilled to raise the bar once again as we launch new capabilities specifically for companies deploying robots and for companies building them.
When dealing with robotics, missions mean much more than just a series of tasks strung together. For operators and those managing robots in the field, a mission is a floor that's been cleaned, an aisle that's been scanned, or an item that's been picked. Mission performance is critical to understanding success
At InOrbit, we have been developing missions as a key feature for fleet management. We’ve worked closely with customers who operate robots at scale and need to understand how their fleet is performing. As the definition of a mission may differ from one customer to another, or even within robots in the same fleet, we’ve focused on building an API that can easily adapt to different setups.
In this article, we will dive into the key features that make InOrbit’s mission tracking an invaluable tool for robot development and operations: observability, performance optimization and adaptability. If you already have your robots InOrbit but haven’t used missions yet or if you are exploring the platform, you will learn how this feature can enhance your robot development.
Our newly announced partnership with Barcodes, and the launch of the InOrbit Warehouse Automation (IOWA) solution has generated a lot of excitement in the industry. As we developed IOWA over the past few months, we identified several key features that were essential to the success of the product. The most significant feature of IOWA is undoubtedly InOrbit missions.
Today we announced a partnership with Barcodes Inc. to showcase our new InOrbit Warehouse Automation solution at Promat 2023. This partnership has been percolating for some time now and we’re thrilled to finally have a chance to talk about why everyone should be excited for what’s to come.
This past year saw major changes for InOrbit, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Through experiment-led development, lots of trial and error, and some great connections with our friends and family in the robotics community (that’s all of you), we’ve made our platform more accessible, and robust for our users.
As 2021 comes to a close we are taking time to look back and reflect, if only for a few minutes on the year that was, and highlight some of our successes.
