Brain Corp this week announced the Site Maps feature for its BrainOS software for autonomous mobile robots, or AMRs. The company said it offers insights to facility managers about operational efficiency and proof of work.

A major challenge for facilities managers is determining what work has been completed or not. “This is especially true when it comes to facility cleaning and trying to understand what areas have been cleaned and what tasks still need attention,” said Brain Corp.

The company said in a release that AMRs using BrainOS can provide data insights and tools so that this information is easily accessible.

“Site Maps have been a great way for our customers to receive a more comprehensive story of their operations from the data shared by robots,” said Nicole Holzman-Schneider, a customer success specialist at Tennant Co. “This has enabled our customers to really break down their progress week over week so that they are more intelligent and efficient with their operations.”

BrainOS Site Maps to help tune operations

The new Site Maps feature extends the visibility provided by BrainOS by providing a visual representation of an environment, according to Brain Corp. It said the enhanced data visualization can help facilities managers to better understand, in real time, the progress of operations.

Through accessing these visualizations, sites can train more efficient routes for their robotic fleets, plan optimized schedules, and identify areas that need additional attention to maximize coverage and reduce overlaps, said Brain. The feature also offers new capabilities for the BrainOS suite, such as performance grades and tables that summarize how well robots completed their operations in a facility during given a week.

Site Maps can be easily accessed through the Web-based BrainOS Fleet Ops Portal, the BrainOS Mobile App, and e-mail reports, said Brain Corp. This provides flexibility and convenience for monitoring and managing cleaning operations remotely.

BrainOS customers can contact their equipment manufacturers to enable Site Maps for their facilities, said the company.

Brain Corp to exhibit at CMS Berlin

Brain Corp plans to show its automation technology at CMS Berlin, an international cleaning trade fair taking place from Sept. 19 to 22. Attendees will be able to see real-world examples of insights delivered by BrainOS software.

CMS Berlin visitors will also have opportunities to personally teach and run routes on a BrainOS-powered automation, said Brain Corp.

The San Diego-based company claimed that its BrainOS artificial intelligence software powers more than 30,000 AMRs, representing the largest fleet of its kind in the world. Brain Corp said OEM partners use its cloud-connected platform to build scalable, self-driving robots to clean floors, move inventory, and sense environmental data, automating workflows for end customers.

This feature enables organizations to easily track their cleaning operations by easily seeing what has been cleaned and what cleaning tasks need to get done.
