We created an integrated autonomous work management platform to coordinate between people and robots, at scale

The Challenge

It’s nearly impossible to find a complete robot solution purpose-built to solve a company’s unique challenges, in their unique environment, and with their unique processes and people. We set out to create a customizable platform that pairs advanced autonomy and integration to streamline system architecture and design, coordinate and manage workforces, provide advanced navigation and control, gather data and intelligence, and be easily serviced and supported as the system scales.

Our Solution

An Integration Platform as a Service (Ipaas), Harmony provides workforce management and coordination, navigation action and control, telemetry and data intelligence of robot behavior, service support design, and architectural schema for sending robots “home” to recharge for the next mission. From the strategic planning for team management and system scalability to the actual engineering and development work, Fresh handled every aspect of the solution.

People and robots getting work done together

The robotics market is growing rapidly. We developed Harmony, recognizing a unique opportunity to provide a solution in the service and collaborative robotics space. The core vision is an advanced autonomous work management and execution platform crafted for simplicity, productivity, and growth. But at a deeper level, it’s a bridge between two related yet differing fields.

Service robots perform most tasks, but not industrial automation. Additionally, they aren’t always autonomous. Collaborative robots perform tasks including factory automation and are typically fully automated, but only operate in structured environments. We recognized the opportunity to create a system that manages both types of robots and creates better synergy with a human workforce.

A platform to bridge essential resources

There are existing robots, platforms, and frameworks, but a nexus between the three was lacking, something that can be customized and tailored to individual customer needs. Harmony is positioned to bring key partners and technology together to address various customer needs.

At its core, Harmony is your command center for fleet management, mission control, traffic management, and AI-based control.

Built for integration

Harmony’s architecture links your robotics solution’s most essential elements. You might have the robots but lack the cloud capabilities to gather data, manage it, and use machine learning to enable your robots to adapt autonomously. Harmony is positioned at the middle of your resources and your lack thereof, covering deficiencies and ensuring that any new addition to your system integrates seamlessly with the other component parts.

With one, uniform system, you can account for all aspects of robot deployment, operation, and management. Everything is integrated with Harmony, and provided by a partner who understands the best solutions in the field and the best way to connect them for maximum efficiency.
