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.
Touch to drive is an innovative technology we are bringing to the table for our ReadySight™ robots. Controlling the robots in this way means they can be easily operated with zero special training.
What you’re doing is looking at the video feed sent to your phone by your ReadySight robot and then tapping the screen in the location you want the robot to drive to.
That’s it, the ReadySight robot takes care of the rest with its robust suite of sensors.
Even the best networks encounter lag, and often responders are operating in an area with poor signal quality. Imagine trying to control a robot with your thumbs on a smartphone screen with even a half second of lag. You’ll have driven past your target before you even had the opportunity to do anything about it.
Touch to drive eliminates this problem.
See an opening to a doorway you want to drive through? Tap the opening and your robot will go there.
Not only does this make your ReadySight robot easy to operate, it makes it safer as well.
If you are hyper focused on controlling your robot with precision inputs you won’t be aware of what is happening around you. This defeats the purpose of a situational awareness robot.
We packed enough technology into this little robot to ensure that isn’t the case.
ReadySight robots are smart as hell and capable of enough autonomous operation to make sure you are getting the information you need without losing yourself to driving it.
