Brain Corp launches new UX design and reporting capabilities for autonomous mobile robots

Artificial intelligence software technology company Brain Corp has launched new user experience (UX) design and reporting capabilities that revolutionize the ease of which autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) can be used and managed at scale.

Designed to optimize usage of robots powered by BrainOS—an AI software platform that is used to build, operate, and manage multiple robotic applications—for different types of users on a global basis, the software enhancements also include powerful new software features for BrainOS-enabled robotic scrubbers that deliver improved cleaning efficiency and flexibility for commercial locations.

According to Brain Corp, Schnuck Markets, Inc., a grocery chain in the Midwest, selected the new Tennant T380AMR robotic scrubbers, powered by BrainOS, because of Brain Corp's innovation in UX design and operational reporting, along with the proven performance and scale of Tennant Co. floor care equipment. More than half of Schnucks’ stores will have autonomous units when deployments are completed by the end of the year.

“These new robotic scrubbers will enhance cleaning performance, while giving valuable time back to teammates so they can spend more time doing what is most important: serving our customers,” says Kim Anderson, senior director Store Operations Support at Schnucks.

“Robotics and technology are important tools for helping us improve in-store experiences and achieve our customer-first values.”

The new software release includes several features and functionality that elevate the use and adoption of robotics for businesses and their employees, including universal design and iconography; powerful route-cleaning upgrades; unified reporting across applications; report internationalization; and new reporting at scale.

“Our goal is to make BrainOS-powered robots dead simple to use for any global audience and to help end customers better collect and leverage robotic data so they deliver better customer experiences,” says Jon Thomason, CTO of Brain Corp.

“This new release extends the value of our platform and sets the bar for what users should expect from their investment in autonomous robots.”

Brain Corp currently operates more than 14,000 AMRs worldwide through its global manufacturing partners. That, according to the company, is the largest fleet of its kind operating in high-traffic commercial indoor locations. Brain Corp’s robotic applications include floor scrubbers, vacuums, delivery tugs, and a new shelf analytics application that is currently being piloted in major retail locations.
