Waypoint Robotics, a NH-based startup formerly known as Stanley Robotics, will be exhibiting in booth 305 at the Robotics Summit and Showcase. Waypoint Robotics will be demoing its ROS-based Vector mobile robot, its EnZone wireless power solution, Dispatcher software development kit and Dispatcher fleet management software.
Taking place May 23-24 in Boston, the Robotics Summit is a multifaceted educational event dedicated to addressing the technical issues involved with developing commercial robotics and intelligent systems. Click here to view more about the Robotics Summit exhibitors.
Waypoint Robotics co-founder and CEO Jason Walker will also be speaking on the “Autonomy & Opportunity” panel on Wednesday, May 23 from 3:00 pm – 3:45 pm. Alongside Jason Derenick, VP of Technology at Exyn Technologies, and Tim Rowland, CEO of Badger Technologies, the panel will cover the gradual increase in the levels of autonomy and the the capacity for systems to move or perform tasks without human intervention. It is important for developers of robotics and automation technology to understand the various forms by which autonomy can be manifested, and what currently is technically possible or soon will be.
Here is a quick look at some of the solutions Waypoint Robotics will feature in booth 305.
Waypoint Robotics Vector Mobile Robot
Vector is an easy to use, industrial strength, high quality, omni-directional, fully autonomous, mobile robot. It’s designed for the workforce of today, so they can set it up and they can put it to work immediately. Vector is small, agile, and ROS-Native, so it’s customizable and future-proof.
Waypoint Robotics EnZone Wireless Power
EnZone is more than just a charging dock — it’s wireless power on demand. The high-power wireless connection enables “opportunity charging,” so Vector can charge anywhere, any time it pauses during its regular work cycle; which means Vector keeps operating without coming out of service for charging. So you can forget about batteries and charging.
But the Waypoint EnZone is about more than charging; it enables on-demand wireless power for payloads like robot arms or conveyors. Supplying power to these systems when and where needed, Waypoint can reduce the cost, space, weight, and maintenance required for cobot mobile manipulation systems.
Waypoint Robotics’ Dispatcher-SDK
Waypoint Robotics’ Dispatcher-SDK is a portable ROS workstation designed to ensure you can start developing with your Vector autonomous mobile robot within minutes of opening the crate. Offered by Waypoint to expedite ROS development of our autonomous mobile robots, the Dispatcher-SDK eliminates the time that a developer would normally spend to setup and debug the IDE (integrated development environment).
Instead of spending weeks configuring and chasing bugs related to the IDE, the Dispatcher-SDK allows developers to get started immediately.
Waypoint Robotics’ Dispatcher Fleet Management
Dispatcher is Waypoint Robotics’ new cloud-based fleet management tool. This freemium SaaS tool simplifies setup and usage of Waypoint’s autonomous mobile robots. It’s designed for the workforce of today; so easy to use that it makes Waypoint robots just as accessible and straightforward to use as every other tool workers are already using.
The problem with robotics has always been the robots, which have been defined by their limitations and complexity; Dispatcher eliminates that problem through the Workforce First design approach. It’s everything you need, and nothing you don’t need — accessible, flexible, scalable, and futureproof.
