A black box. Arcane, too complex for a layperson. These are all terms that have been used to describe robotics automation since the beginning of the field, and all terms that – as far as we’re concerned – only hinder the true scalability and potential of robotics automation because operators are not comfortable with it.
Botsync’s no-code software platform for its MAG AMRs, syncOS, is meant to be nothing like that. Instead syncOS is designed to be as easy-to-use as possible, so that customers can easily make any changes to our MAG AMRs’ settings themselves with zero technical expertise. Targeting Southeast Asia and India, we realized early on that two of the main requirements in this region were:
- Flexibility to adapt our MAG AMRs to changing operations
- Flexibility for operators to be able to do these adaptations themselves
syncOS was created to enable this flexibility. Our aim is to put control of automation back in customers’ hands, to make it accessible to the normal operator – and so we accomplished this by making syncOS as easy-to-use and intuitive as a smartphone app. Operators can easily configure or replace MAG AMR application modules, change speed or restricted zones, create/edit workflows, and other settings for the robotic fleet, without any coding skills. One example of this is the workflow creator, which allows users to easily create and alter the maps of the facilities that the AMRs use to navigate. This includes waypoints to pick up and return materials, temporary stop for operator’s confirmation, what routes to take, and where in the facilities MAG AMRs will slow down or speed up, depending on the amount of traffic in the area.
