Fetch Robotics develops and manufactures autonomous mobile robot solutions for the warehousing and intralogistic markets. Headquartered in San Jose, California, Fetch uses its significant robotics expertise to provide reliable and safe collaborative AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robot) solutions for two commercial applications: material handling and data collection.
- Created the Taskbuilder module and integrated it with FetchCore
- Developed a tool for defining robotic data collection routes
- Developed a robot queueing feature
- Developed a tool that manages destination groups
- Introduced a new ‘conditional actions’ capability that gives “if – then – else” flexibility.
- Developed a standalone application for field personnel, enabling them to create robot tasks for picking up and dropping off carts
A critical component in the success of Fetch’s solutions is FetchCore™, a cloud-based, fleet-management software system that customers use to manage their robots. Fetch’s roboticists wanted to expand FetchCore’s functionality to include simple controls for creating and scheduling robots’ tasks. They wanted a partner to help them build a new platform for streamlining robotic warehouse operations.
Fetch commissioned Star to develop the Taskbuilder module and develop the backend and website integration with FetchCore. Fetch’s customers use Taskbuilder to configure, schedule and customize their robots tasks. These tasks can be anything from transporting goods to or from a specific area, to bringing tools to a particular assembly line. Once the tasks are entered into Taskbuilder, FetchCore transmits the tasks, either to an entire fleet, or to one specific robot.
After the successful delivery of the initial project, our development team continued to work with Fetch’s in-house team to develop and deliver new features to the FetchCore platform. The Star team is now responsible for 50% of the front-end code in every FetchCore release. This enables Fetch to deliver new features to market faster.
