Our client is building a fleet of robots designed to deliver goods locally in 15-45 minutes. Their robots have completed thousands of deliveries, travelled hundreds of thousands of miles, met millions of people and have been tested in over 80 cities around the world to date. Their robots drive autonomously but are monitored by humans who can take over control at any time. Launched in 2014, the company is changing the way parcels, groceries and food are delivered.
Servers are where much of the magic happens. Fleet management, routing robots to customers over the most optimal paths, solving escalations from robots, third party partners and mapping. Also working with telemetry to ensure robots are always at their full health and we always know what’s going on first. Handling robots is a broad challenge – one that combines near real-time systems and more traditional entity management, reliable network connectivity and offline prediction of faults, route optimization and customer delivery flows… and a lot more.
If you feel comfortable with some of these topics then we should talk!
