Alfred D'Souza, CEO and President of Altan Robotech, stated, "We are on a mission to bring service robots to households across North America. At Altan Robotech, Inc., we focus on improving everyone's quality of life through robotic empowerment. Our products work with excellence and intelligence, so families can focus on what is important. Your FAMILY MATTERS to us."

Featuring a high-end design, Giddel has a ground-breaking robotic arm driven by advanced sensors and sophisticated, heavy-duty mechanisms that facilitate unrivaled dexterity in consumer robotics to scrub even the hardest-to-reach areas. The highly flexible body allows it to clean most common round and elongated toilets in North America. Advanced software contains intelligent algorithms that provide safety and obstacle detection, so Giddel can be used in any home, including those with young children and pets.

Alex Rivera, Altan Robotech Vice President of Sales & Marketing, remarked, "The TWICE Top Picks Award is a tribute to our dedication to provide a well-designed, intelligent robot that brings value and time saving to households across North America."

David D'Souza, Research & Development Engineer at Altan Robotech, explained, "Added measures, such as a mounting check switch, and obstacle detection and navigation technology were engineered into Giddel. A built-in fluid system dispenses any common anti-bacterial toilet bowl cleaner, to guarantee thorough disinfection. Giddel systematically cleans the rim, underside of the seat, and the toilet bowl interior down to the drain to ensure hygiene."

After the cleaning cycle is complete, Giddel may be conveniently stored in its charging station. The toilet cleaning robot is engineered to be compact and lightweight for portability.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
