On any given night, you can find me exploring the crevices of my refrigerator, musing on the presence of eight bottles of hot sauce and zero intentional vegetation. Subsequently, 15 minutes later, you’ll find me at Chipotle, ordering my usual: steak-bowl, no beans, and literally everything else.
The range of applications for unmanned systems (UxV) technologies has grown dramatically over the last two decades. Use has shifted from the exclusive domain of the military to becoming a resource used by enterprise-level clients. At Tomahawk, we are powering this growth by taking advantage of a number of technology advancements such as edge computing, low-cost capable sensors and the internet-of-things (IoT) to enable intuitive, effective and efficient robotic control. Our goal is to empower users to improve the safety and efficiency of their operations via affordable robotic solutions. Our Kinesis robotic control software is doing just that by enabling the rapid and efficient deployment of robotic systems.
I believe I’m on record, musing at one point during a networking event that [high tech] “isn’t for me.” I loved my RAZR phone, and despite expert opinions, the Palm Pilot renaissance is imminent. Fast forward a year later, and I’m writing this article on my sofa so the Roomba can get under my feet while Alexa dutifully cranks up the second act of Metallica’s “The Unforgiven” trilogy.
According to projections from the Korean Association of Robot Industry, the global robotics market will exceed $60B by 2020. So, it is no surprise that solutions necessary to optimize the programming and execution of IoT interfaces will play a major role in this era of robotics research.
