Biz Bots Deliver

by Mat Dirjish

Commercial-robot company Pudu Robotics is launching its first-generation building delivery robot. Dubbed FlashBot, the robot performs contactless building and office delivery services. Essentially, FlashBot enables simple digital management and services for hotels and office buildings.

Setup is fairly easy using the FlashBot app. Via the app, the robot can automatically call and take an elevator safely without manual intervention. It can also remind customers to pick up parcels by sending a message with a pickup code or calling the customer directly. And an integrated autonomous positioning and navigation system enables cross-floor delivery.

FlashBot employs three RGB-D camera sensors and custom lidar SLAM for in-depth obstacle avoidance including 3D mapping and localization, path planning, autonomous navigation, object recognition, and people tracking features. This allows the robot to detect obstacles as low as 3 cm and suspended obstacles at a height of 70 cm from the floor. Using IoT technology and the company’s cloud-computing platform for data transmission, FlashBot has the ability to recognize and pursue a precise path of navigation.

For smooth travel and navigation, FlasBot’s auto-level, six-wheel independent linkage suspension can adjust damping based on different floor conditions so the robot remains in a physically-stable stable state. As a result, the robot can surmount obstacles measuring 2 cm in height and gaps of 3.5 cm in width.

For multiple robot delivery services, the  PUDU Scheduler system allows FlashBot to directly communicate with any other Pudu robot in the same network. The system supports scheduling for as many as 20 robots.

Keeping an eye on battery power, FlashBot automatically provides both a voice alert and user-interface notification when the battery is low. Upon an alert, the robot returns to the docking station for charging. Other power features include an ultra-long-life battery with a capacity of 15.6 Ah. On a single charge, FlashBot can run for up to 12 hours.

Finally, FlashBot provides a multi-functional storage compartment that enables it to perform multiple tasks via a single tap. Also, the compartment features a UV germicidal lamp that delivers a sterilization rate up to 99.9%.

Ready to automate your business with robot delivery but hunger for greater details and data?  Hunger no more! Feast upon the all-you-can-eat salad bar of info and demos on Pudu’s FlashBot page.
