The API provides aggregate detailed information on every charge cycle for every robot, allowing battery performance analysis to better predict failures and avoid downtime and adjusts the charge settings for groups of robots and push those updates to the fleet automatically.
Benchmarking battery performance across different chemistries and vendors to help customers make more informed decisions over time, and the Commander software can be used on premise for environments where IT security is crucial but can also be ported to any cloud using the docker container’s RESTful API. All data seen in Commander can be accessed by calling the API, which means that if it is visible in Commander, it can be tied into the rest of a customer’s workflow.
Commander has been evaluated by WayPoint Robotics, a leading developer and manufacturer of fully autonomous mobile robots, which launched its EnZone charging system using WiBotic technology in 2018. “As we deploy larger fleets of robots, we prioritize battery charging as a point of optimization," said Jason Walker, CEO of Waypoint. "Robot availability and battery lifespan can be maximized if we know when, where, and how fast to charge; and Commander gives us that visibility and control. Commander also makes deployment and maintenance of multiple EnZones faster and easier than ever before.”
