Autonomy-as-a-Service is the provisioning and management of an on-demand, scalable, flexible and agile Autonomous Workforce, composed of fleets of different types of drones, robots and IoT devices working together to deliver Industry 4.0 solutions.
The integration of various robots types (aerial, ground, hybrid) possessing a variety of capabilities complies into robust autonomous fleets, in conjunction with other IoTdevices and hardware, powering their deployment over the cloud via a single management interface both indoors and outdoors, with or without GPS, over Wi-Fi, 4G LTE or 5G [Unmanned Life has recently achieved the high watermark of being the only platform that enables Autonomy-as-a-Service over 5G, both locally and for roaming 5G access.]
The platform enables users to deploy and manage these autonomous robot fleets and missions interfacing them effectively with business information systems and enterprise AI to deliver real value-added solutions at a reasonable cost with high ROI. System of Systems architecture allows to take X number of agents with basic capabilities to enable new complex context-based capabilities. For example; One copter can provide connectivity to an area while a rover can drive long distances. Together they can deploy autonomously a backhaul in remote areas.
Each system of the SoS is connected to the cloud U-Platform platform and reports its status and sensor information like cameras or lidars in real-time. The AI backend provides all the information the platform needs to the SoS with the most optimized mission and updates it on context modification. At the same time, the platform monitors the systems to detect faults and recover from errors to ensure system-wide stability.
Additionally, on an entity level, the U-Life platform provides autonomy by advertising multiple highly optimized and performant services: Vision to handle unknown changes of the environment, pathfinding to travel everywhere in the facility/campus, an always up to date mission so the systems are used as much as possible and Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) connectivity.
