ReadySight robot navigates rocks, rugs and all sorts of indoor and outdoor terrain.
Time takes time. I’ve heard that saying often, but have a new appreciation for it in recent weeks. I co-founded Company Six due to its important mission - keeping people with dangerous jobs and those they serve, safe. I, as much as anyone, want to get our rugged, low-cost robot out to our customers as soon as possible, to have their backs and to provide the situational awareness they need today.
Respect is one of the CO6 core values, and it takes many forms. Making a small and capable robot like ReadySight is very difficult - it requires optimizing for mobility, size, temperature and moisture, battery life, and a secure backend video platform. Our team is up to the challenge, but out of respect for first responders and others with dangerous jobs, we simply will not put a robot into their hands unless it meets our high criteria for reliability and performance.
We also respect the urgency facing those who are eagerly waiting for the services the ReadySight robot provides. We are thrilled to announce that our Special Insights Team (SIT) partners will begin beta testing the ReadySight robots in the coming weeks. For first responders, every day counts, every day brings a chance for circumstances where situational awareness could make a meaningful difference. We respect the urgent need that each and every one of our customers face, and want to meet that demand.
As my team and I face difficult decisions, we focus on the fundamentals, on our core values, and on how best to respect and honor our mission while maintaining the level of trust our customers bestow upon us. We take the time to earn our stakeholders’ respect and to deliver a product and program worthy of it. Thank you for your patience as each day the ReadySight robot takes one step closer to serving you, ensuring safety and awareness when you and your community need it most.
There are a lot of reasons we turned to the cloud when it came to how ReadySight™ robots were going to handle data.
All of the video ReadySight robots record is saved immediately to the cloud. This means physical storage cannot be damaged or lost, and allows data to be integrated seamlessly into existing evidence storage software. Saving data to the user’s phone would be prohibitive for a number of reasons, but would also make the device potentially subject to holding as evidence. We didn’t want that to happen.
The cloud gives any number of users the ability to watch video streamed live from any number of ReadySight robots, and even take over control of units should the situation call for it. This is a huge boon to those in a command setting as it gives them the most up to date information possible into what is happening on the ground.
Including the computing power for machine learning algorithms would have been cost prohibitive, and forcing a cell phone to do it could lead to crashes.
Using the cloud in this way allows our ReadySight robots to do things that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.
At the end of the day it’s about putting tools that make a difference into the hands of those who need them most. The ReadySight robot is that tool; something that can be used every day because it’s versatile, tough, and smart.
