InOrbit Connect Certification Simplifies Scaling Robot Operations

Companies can connect robots from different vendors to the cloud with a single click to improve operational efficiency

At A3's Automate trade show today, InOrbit launched the new InOrbit Connect™ certification program making it easier for companies to connect robots to the cloud. Companies deploying robots to improve internal processes can add one or hundreds of robots to their InOrbit account with one click. Robot buyers also have access to a free, comprehensive robot directory, including InOrbit Connect-certified robots. With a growing list of robotics companies, this will become an invaluable industry resource.


"Robots are the ultimate data-driven machines, yet it's still hard for people to get the right insights from their robots at the right time," said Florian Pestoni, co-founder and CEO of InOrbit. "With InOrbit Connect and the robot directory, we're able to reduce the friction for end-users, who just want their robots to do their job, and robot developers can now focus on addressing the specific needs their robots were designed for. They can each get the data they need, whether it's to drive operations, detect and resolve incidents, or make their product better."

InOrbit Connect is a first-of-its-kind certification program to help connect robot developers and end-users. It removes barriers to getting valuable, real-time robot operations data across vendors. The new program enables robot developers to gather data from all their robots in the field to drive continuous improvement. By connecting their robots to the cloud with a single click, end-users can access all critical operational data in one place regardless of vendor. InOrbit Connect makes this as easy as watching Netflix on a Smart TV.

"Through our work with InOrbit, we are getting critical operational data on our smart autonomous mobile robot, KIRA B 50," said Marco Cardinale, VP of Floor Care Solutions and Robotics at Kärcher. "With InOrbit Connect, our customers get the benefits of RobOps with minimum effort, gaining access to real-time, actionable insights that match their needs. As autonomous cleaning robots from Kärcher are deployed in environments such as warehouses and airports with other types of robots, InOrbit can provide an integrated view for maximum efficiency."

"We are thrilled to be part of InOrbit Connect and to be listed in the robot directory," said Lucas Jagodnik, CEO of Apelie Robotics. "As a startup in Argentina working on robotics solutions for specific local needs, we face many unique challenges. InOrbit Connect lets us offer our customers a complete solution for robot operations that's on par with or above what the largest robotics companies provide."

InOrbit offers free and paid editions of its scalable, cloud-based RobOps platform, making it accessible to everyone from early-stage startups to large enterprises. In combination with InOrbit Connect, the InOrbit platform provides a single pane of glass for operating diverse and growing fleets while keeping each part of the ecosystem focused on what it does best.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
