Data flexibility is crucial for growing robotics companies to accelerate product development and get the most out of their fleet. Yet most robotics startups aren’t thinking strategically about their data when first building out their tech stack.
In this webinar, we’ll show a live demo of Spot in action, stream that data into Formant, and push it into another tool for custom visualization. We’ll also dive into other ways that companies are using Formant’s platform to capture device data and seamlessly export it to external tools for in-depth analysis.
We’ll also dive into ways that companies are using Formant’s platform to capture device data and seamlessly export it to external tools for in-depth analysis and better decision making.
Attendees of this webinar will learn how:
- How to think strategically about data at your robotics company.
- How leading robotics companies use Formant’s APIs to push data to tools like Grafana and Jupyter Notebooks.
- Considerations when capturing data (network restraints, which streams are valuable, etc.)
